East Hampton Restaurants

Seven days. Monday-Saturday 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Sunday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Almost everything at Villa is made in-house, from the pasta down to the sauce. They sell fresh mozzarella, sausage, and every hero and focaccia sandwich is made to order. There are unusual salads, various sausages, and prepared dishes like stuffed shells, chicken marsala, and eggplant Parmesan, which can be eaten right away or stocked in the freezer for a later date. Though it's now an East Hampton institution, when the Villa first came to town, under Saverio Naclerio, those who loved Italian specialties couldn't believe their good luck. Catering is available, and there is a hidden patio with tables out back.

A great variety of sushi and sashimi includes some you don't often see, such as sweet shrimp and bluefin toro. The cost ranges widely, from $3 and $75, for a deluxe assortment for two. You can find a tasty chicken teriyaki salad and spicy tuna sandwich here, and the specials are worth trying. The Star's food writer, Laura Donnelly said, the fried oyster roll retained its crunch inside the rice, and she found the Pink Lady, a mixture of lobster, shrimp, crabmeat, asparagus, and avocado, delicious.
