VILLA NUOVA RISTORANTE (BYOB)

 Villa Nuova Ristorante on Good Intent Rd in Deptford, NJ is a review I have wanted to post since our visit there on a Friday night in early December. It’s a little place I had never heard of and had no idea it even existed. Judging from the sparse gathering at the other tables, not many other folks know about it, either; and that’s a shame because it’s an excellent local eatery for any night of the week. Good food, great service. This place is, in my opinion, a hidden gem.

 Here are some samples reviews from Yelp.com:

Fantastic food, large portions, and we never had to wait for a table. The owner and chef Pepi, always makes sure your happy with your meal. We can’t say enough, check it out for yourself, you won’t be sorry

    Great Place
    We stopped after many months of thinking about it. What a great place!! Service was great…food even better…quantity vs. price is very good. In todays economy…great food for reasonable cost. What a wonderful little place…..will deffinately go again…soon!!!
 My wine for the night was a 2008 Chateau Tanunda, Shiraz from Australia which I had picked up last week from Cana’s Bottle Stop in Marlton. Thos one received 92 points from Wine Spectator and came in at #33 on the 2011 list of Top 100 wines. Wine Spectator mentioned that “fans of Mollydooker’s “The Boxer” would find this one much like it and a shade better balanced”. It was very good but, I’d still choose “The Boxer” over this one.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Because so much time has gone by, and Villa Nuova does not have a web site I won’t remember what dishes the others had. Mine was the Chicken Sinatra which was a large portion of tender chicken breasts topped with yummy morsels of crabmeat and nicely cooked linguine with a delicate sauce. It was delicious that night and just as good the next day for lunch. Here are a few pictures of what our friends enjoyed.
