Description: The idea of Villagio comes from a marriage between time and place; the old neighborhoods of New York City and the abundant plains of California. What California brings to the table figuratively and literally, is its abundance of fresh produce, fresh starts, and the opportunity to reinvent. And so it was with these two places and time in mind that we set out to build a restaurant that would meld the two. With pizza dough made from scratch, hand stretched and cooked in a traditional pizza oven, our proprietary pizza sauce and the freshest of ingredients, Villagio invites you to dig in and enjoy our food, our warmth, and our relaxing ambiance. A place where old world tradition, meets new world freshness.

The pizza was very tasty and the large pizza is very big. They first gave you garlic bread knots to start which were very good. It is a restaurant with a family environment. I would recommend it all my friends. The meatball sandwich was also really good.

We've eaten here 5 times and never had a bad meal or bad service. The place is very upscale and it is large and bustling. They are known for their pizza, which is, in my opinion, the best in the desert. Prices are moderate. This is not a "fancy" place, but the interior decor is very striking. It's a good... More

The pizza was excellent when they first opened. I ordered a pizza for pick up, the manager was behind the counter and opened my pizza box, he noticed that it was not made the way the ticket was written, I said, "if he would just throw some pepperoni on the half that I was good". During this time I paid,... More

We went to this restaurant because it was recommended to us. However, our experience was less than stellar. We saw the waitress once when she took our order. Every other time she rushed by and said, "I'll be right back with those drinks!" and she never did. The calamari was so greasy we couldn't eat it. The pizza was edible... More

It was okay. I actually prefer Johnny Carinos or Macaroni Grill (no longer there). The service is great though and more over they are open LATE! A joy for the PD area!

We spent $96 on pizza that was soggy and not even cut correctly. Staying at marriott and saw ad that it was voted no. 1. In the valley. We had it delivered to our villa and was very disappointed in the quality. Don't know who votes for something like this, but our group voted it was terrible. Would never recommend... More

It's not just the pizza that's great at Villagio, it's the entire menu. It's eclectic to say the least and has plenty of succulent surprises for your pallet. Their sauces are amazing. The Seafood Sofrito is incredibly good. Pizza, pasta, seafood, and even a tender fillet mignon. A short distance off the freeway, this is a must-do when traveling through... More

This was very convenient to our hotel, so we decided to try it over the many options in Palm Desert. We were not disappointed. I had the chicken marsala, which was unique because it had a touch of cream in the sauce. Very good!

An ideal spot for a quick family meal. Food and service were good. Although an Italian restaurant one of our party had the white fish special and enjoyed her meal.

Absolutely a terrible meal. I can't understand how our concierge can say that this is the best pizza in the valley. It was soggy with no crust on the bottom and extremely salty. The chopped salad has too much salami in it. The penne sauce was not anything special. To me it was like a fast food meal.
