About Us

La Villetta, “cottage” in Italian, is housed in a former carriage house whose building dates back to 1910. This unique space features tones of emerald green, colorful blue, red and yellow stoneware and exposed brick walls giving it both an intimate and rustic feel. The emerald green and dusk blue are reminiscent of the stunning seas and coastline of Puglia, Italy. The region of Puglia is known for its legendary yet simplistic cuisine and boasts some of the best Mediterranean fare.

The inspiration for La Villetta comes from frequent trips to a similar concept in Roma, Italy and a love for Italian food. The cuisine, wine and cocktail lists are reflective of dishes local to Puglia. Each course is prepared with the highest quality ingredients and made fresh daily. We offer approximately ninety wines by the bottle and a comprehensive selection of wines by the glass.

La Villetta offers main dining room seating for approximately sixty guests, group dining options and a charming bar area where the full menu is available as well as an extensive wine and cocktail list.

Nestled on East 52nd Street at First Avenue in Sutton Place we are proud to serve New York City our delectable cuisine and bring a taste of Italy, as we know it!
