Joe and Debbie Casaccio left a message on October 18, 2021:
Joe and I and my parents Nick and Yvonne Mancini are so sorry to hear about the passing of Toni Davi. We just recently found out. We are long time customers of Toni's. Our hearts are broken for the entire Davi family. We will surely miss Toni's smile and warm welcome when we went to Villa. Joe and I ordered a lot of delivery, as well as eatting at Villa and my parents who live in West Long Branch would go to Villa. Some of our favorites are: Chicken Principesa, Seafood Fra Diavolo, Flounder Francaise, Meatballs, of course pizza, Chicken and Minnestrone Soup, of course the Bread and Cannoli's were delicious. It is with a heavy heart our thoughts and prayers are with the Entire Davi Family. So sorry to hear about Toni's passing away. Love, The Casaccio's of Middletown and The Mancini's of West Long Branch

To the Entire Villa Familia; especially *Momma Tony (Rosa) and Victor my favorite pizza maker. *that’s what i called her) My heart us broken for Tony’s entire family and the Villa family too. Tony was a great owner/husiness man who made everyone feel welcomed. To my son (Trevor) and his friends, to my girlfriends who dined there nearly every Friday and myself on occasions. Once in college he routinely asked about Trevor and took great of us on his 17th birthday back in the dining room. Tony even brought me home a beautiful magnet from the island of Aruba. Wonderful Person REST in Peace Tony; you will be sorely missed. PS: Nico did an excellent job at the pizzeria while Tony was recovering from his surgery last year. Christine Landis

My sincerest sympathies to the family of Tony - we used to always go to this place since my son was in elementary school- this is so sad for this loss. May God Bless the family and friends of Tony.

My wife and I have been Villa customers for many years and were very saddened to learn of Tony's passing. We just learned yesterday. The last time I was there was with my grandson. I had asked him where he wanted to go for pizza. Although he lives in Atlantic Highlands he said "Villa". I can speak some Italian and I always enjoyed exchanging pleasantries in Italian with Tony and Rosa. Esprimiamo a tutto la famiglia le nostre sentite condoglianze.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Colleen & Frank Torello left a message on September 19, 2021:
We are so deeply shocked and upset to just hear this horrible news. Tony was always so kind and nice and always joked with my mom when she went in for her pizza or heros. I have been going to Villa since I move here in 1995. My deepest condolences to his wife and children and his mom Rosa. Out thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Gia (Gayle) Giachetti left a message on September 7, 2021:
I am very sad to hear of the passing of this wonderful man. My son had his 1st slice of pizza at Villa Ristorante at age 3 in 1997 and his 1st soccer/birthday party there in the back dining room in 2000. We live up the street and have been going there for a very long time. They make the best tasting pizza crust and one time I teased him and asked what his secret ingredient was. He smiled and told me it was love (and a good quality olive oil). He was very friendly, kind hearted, and talked to his customers. He will surely be missed. My prayers and condolences to his family, friends, and employees. May he rest in eternal peace, surrounded by God's love. ✝️

What we leave behind when we leave this world is our impressions of how we made people feel. For me Tony was the gentlest of souls. His height gave him presence but it was his quiet manner of heart that always impressed me. May the hurt of his passing fade quickly but the memory of his love last all your lifetimes. With deepest love and sympathy. Meg
