Was looking for somewhere different for Italian other than Manchester's usual suspects. Found this place on Tripadvisor and we are so glad we did. Do not let the nondescript location in a small strip mall fool you. Upon entering, you will find the bar to your left and the dining area to your right. Small, only 15 tables, but lovely... More

This is your traditional Italian restaurant and its just ok for the cost. I find the food to dollar isn't worth it for the quality and taste. The sauce lacks character and depth. I was hoping for so much more when I saw this restaurant so close to home. I will try again and hope for the best!

My wife and I were in Manchester this past weekend and decided to try a local Italian restaurant for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality and authenticity of the food at Villagio Ristorante. The fried mozzarella was fantastic, and we both enjoyed the gnocchi as an entree. Perfect sized portions for everything, and absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend... More

The wife and I decided to go out after church, and we made the happy choice of picking the Villagio. The hostess was warm and friendly, and made us feel welcome. Our server was attentive and cheerful, and explained the menu artfully. The calamari fritti was cooked just right, and was lightly coated, and the marinara sauce was tasty. We... More

Dining out with friends who want Italian food can seem daunting when you are trying to avoid pasta. In the Manchester, NH area try Villagio’s. They make genuine Italian dishes, and they will modify them to suit your wishes and preferences. On this visit, I chose veal piccata. Rather than pasta, they let me just have fresh vegetables. I do... More

My fiancee and I stopped in late in the evening after the dinner rush. There were only 2 other tables seated but they were happy to serve us. The food was outstanding. Homemade bread and pasta was delicious and the white chocolate raspberry martini was the icing on the cake! I am an itialian fan and this place felt authentic.... More

We have driven by Villagio numerous times and have never stopped because the outside was, well, less than appealing. You are pleasantly surprised once you cross thru the doorway The décor was very elegant and tasteful Italian, its casual, yet elegant fine dining. The staff very attentive and friendly. The food was out of this world delicious. I had the... More

My husband and I drive by here frequently and decided to give it a try. I had a few misgivings, only because it is in an unattractive strip mall. When we walked in we were pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was very good and the hostess came by frequently to see how our meal was and to refill our water glasses.... More

The intimacy of Villaggio draws us in every time. The fantastic food and friendly staff bring us back repeatedly. Prices are reasonable, and the food is totally authentic. Do be prepared for a leisurely dinner, as everything is prepared to order. Try to get reservations, as the tables fill very quickly. No reservations? You might get lucky, especially if you... More

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
