We went with 10 family members on Father's day. We ordered multiple appetizers including calamity, fried Mozzarella, a special homemade pasta with a fresh pea stuffing. All were excellent. The salads were fresh and tastes and my daughter loved the italian wedding soup. The main courses including both chicken and veal Parmigiana-were excellent. Fresh tuna with scallops and also Scampi... More

This was our 2nd trip to Villagio so I was looking forward to another good experience. It has great ambience tucked away in a little strip mall. We had reservations but unfortunately there was a lack of communication with the wait staff. The 2 of us sat for 20 minutes and not one person came up to us to pour... More

My family and I love this place! The food is excellent, and the only thing better than the food is the kind-hearted, awesome staff. We tell everyone about it, and begged our Italian boss to let us host the company Holiday Party dinner here. Everyone from our office is now obsessed! And the people who work here have always gone...

We used a Living Social deal this weekend. The restaurant is quaint. We called ahead and were seated at the table right in front of the kitchen door and basically in the bar area. It was a very busy area, I wouldn't recommend it if you were on a date. It was pretty clear that there are a lot of... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time the other night and were thoroughly impressed! It has a beautiful and stylish atmosphere inside, the waitress, Nancy, was obviously very happy with her job because it came through in her service to us! We had excellent food, very flavorful and Nancy's suggestions were perfect! We will make this one of our... More

I had heard a few recommendations for this restaurant, and finally got a chance to go with a few of my friends. The atmosphere was comfortable, and my food was good, but the whole experience was clouded by the fact that the waitress dropped a whole glass of wine (thank goodness it was white) down my friend's sleeve and onto/into...

This is by far one of the best restaurants in the area serving true homemade Italian food. Excellent quality, great recipes, all with the true personal touch from the owner/chef. We have enjoyed their Eggplant Rollatini appetizer every time we have been there because it is so delicious. Their homemade pasta dishes are superb as are all of their seafood... More

I have driven by here many times and never really noticed this this place. I saw a discount on a site I use and gave it a try, and wow the food was great! The waitress we had said everything was made from scratch and if you wanted this sauce on this plate for instance, no problem, extra garlic or... More

This is a follow-up visit and a follow-up on my last comments. The food was outstanding!! Delicious! And I am going back!! I had the Vitello E Gamberi (veal with shrimp) and I loved it, I have already made plans to come back. My husband loved his veal dish also. The salads were wonderful and very fresh. The atmosphere is... More

We returned to Villagio after a year and found it to be as good as it was the first time. I had the osso buco over risotto which was excellent. My wife usually does not order pasta in a restaurant because it is over cooked. When she asked for al dente our waitress said "of course". She also wanted a... More
