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.

We had the bruschetta, calamari, and a pizza. I could have made a meal from the bruschetta! The calamari were delicious.

My husband and I were interested in an Italian Dinner (mainly pasta - Carbs) prior to the Palm Desert Century but we did not want to travel all over the area. Pizzeria Villagio was recommended by our hotel. When we arrived it was packed, (Good Sign) We were asked if we wanted to wait up to 30 minutes or sit... More

recently had dinner here one evening. My wife had the soup of the day, was very good. Ordered a pizza which basically was a meat lover's pizza. Really, over the top tasty and was sufficient that we only ate half and took the rest to the hotel's refrigerator for lunch the next day. They have a nice little bar area... More

If you like clams linguine, this is the place to go. It's the best I've ever had! Actually, everything was really good. Highly recommended!

This restaurant was a nice surprise when we stopped in 2 years ago. What caught our eye was the fact that it seemed to be busy all the time - during both lunch and dinner. Service has been a bit inconsistent - we're there in Feb and Oct when visiting from out-of-state. Prices for the dinner menu are a bit... More

It's time to re-train the staff in the abc's of good customer service. If they carry on as they did tonight they may start to affect repeat custom - shame as your pizza is good $20 for a 14" meat feast.

Arrived at 2045 for a pizza with my boyfriend. On arrival we were asked if we were collecting a take out pizza, when we said no - the waitress looked disappointed and showed us to a table. Waited 10 mins to order drinks - wine arrived in a lipstick smeared dirty glass. 10 mins later they finally came back for... More

Shared a pizza with my girlfriend, and even though it was good (and not too expensive), service really let it down. There was one guy who cared but everyone else was either fooling around or in their own little world. Got the distinct impression that they wanted us to leave so that they could close for the night.

A group of us had dinner on a Friday night, and we had all been here before. I am not sure what has happened, but the food was dreadful. My Margherita pizza was filled with tomato paste, and decorated on the top with pesto squeezed from a tube like a long snake. The service was fine, but no one enjoyed... More
