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.

Great food & friendly staff

We ordered the Spinaci (spinach) salad, Linguini with clams, & vegetable lasagna and it was all delicious. I was impressed with the homemade pasta which really made the dishes. Next time I'll have to try their pizzas.

This restaurant was close to our hotel and after viewing the menu online, we decided to go for dinner. The service was great, the staff were all very polite, and the prices are reasonable (I hope someone changes the 3 $$$ because this is not an overly expensive restaurant at all!). The food was absolutely delicious, everyone raved! We enjoyed... More

I can't say enough about this place... it's great. Consistently outstanding fare and service. Great wine list and eating at the bar is a great option. Awesome pizza and Italian dishes. Their sauces are made fresh daily with a lot of TLC. The shrimp dishes rock!

This place is always dependable. The food is good and the service is fantastic. Our experience was superb, but what impressed me was the way they handled other people. I heard the mgr (I assume) deal with someone on the phone that had a pickup and had a problem. Then I watched him deal with an elderly woman that had... More

Nice Menu, good ambiance! All the elements are there. We enjoyed every dish; the Tomato Basil Soup, the fried calamari and the Villagio's Italian sandwich. Good wine selection and prices are not bad at all. No wonder this place is always busy.

Three of us went and we went specifically for the Linguini and Clams. We have had it many times before with the Garlic Bread and both are the best ever.

Well, we've been here twice. I give it 4 stars because my husband's pizza was fabulous both times. Mine - the margarita and I had a goat cheese/caramelized onion one - were soggy. The service was terrible both times although the waiters are friendly....just took forever...anyway, try the NY pizza...

This place is nothing special, except for the food. The food is exceptional and the service was very good. They were accommodating to all requests. The food was nice and hot, the way we like it. Their garlic knots that they brought out were great. We ordered the lunch make your own pasta and that was plenty of food. A... More

Really not a lot you can say about this place. Very average service, average food. Waited a while as well. The food is always what's important to me when I write reviews, I don't mind bad service if the food is great, so three of us had pizza which was ok but as good or bad as any I've ever... More
