Since 1981, Villa Berulia has been serving delicious Italian and Croatian food in this old-school gem of a restaurant hidden in plain sight on E 34th St. Zagat says, “exceptional hospitality is the strong suit of this Murray Hill family affair that follows through with excellent Italian fare.” The owners offer a warm atmosphere and often personally welcome and thank you. Recommended by many members of our group over the years, it has 4 stars on Yelp and 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor.

This is one of The Single Gourmet’s favorite restaurants, and our menu, which has been upgraded to 4 courses, features the best of their Italian and Croatian delicacies such as the Pollo Berulia, a chef’s special of chicken sautéed in white wine with wild mushrooms and artichoke hearts; vegan options are also available.
