We're been going here for many years either just two and sometimes 20 and always great service. The food is very good and the price is very reasonable. You can bring your own wine and beer and the staff will supply glasses and wine chiller as needed. Many times we've had large parties and once an 'memorial event' for 100... More

We have gone to this restaurant for years. We now go only every few months because we have moved farther away. Maybe that is why the age of its decor has become so noticeable. My wife described it as "tired". The menu has a good selection, the prices are good and the service is good. Food wise, I enjoyed my... More

Found a great Italian Rest, Our waitress, Jackie, was very nice and knowledgeable. She recommended two great choices - Veal Tuscana and Chicken Murphy. Thanks to Jackie, we'll be back.

Was here with 21 members of my extended family celebrating a relatives major birthday milestone. Had heard it was good food and was excited to try it for the first time. Overall, nothing special other than the friendly service. The good: friendly service that makes you feel welcomed, simple ambience that doesn't require you to be dressed up and an... More

We've been going since they opened a few decades ago. We try other places and keep coming back. Excellent food, good prices made better since it's a BYO, know the staff and they've watched our kids and now grandkids grow. We'll keep coming back for years to come!

I have gone to this wonderful restaurant many years... many wonderful memories for all different occasions. I have never been disappointed. I have gone to others but this remains my favorite. The staff is wonderful and I look forward to returning soon.

I'm delighted to recommend Villaggio. We're regulars there and for good reasons: Great food, really nice people, BYOB, and all at reasonable prices. We mistakenly tried a "new" local BYOB for variety's sake but will never again make that mistake. Villaggio is the REAL DEAL.

First off, I went to this restaurant on a recommendation and was sorely disappointed. Eating alone, the hostess tried to place me right next to the kitchen door. When I said no, she copped an attitude and moved me to the next booth up. I balked again and moved myself and sat down at an empty booth (there were quite... More

Quiet unexpectedly we found this restaurant in New Jersey while driving. We initially thought it was a part of the same Villaggio chain that operates in Chiswick and Hammersmith. Villagio means village restaurant in Italian. Restaurant ambience is great. We ordered Pasta and Pizza and Risotto as Primevera for dinner. Pasta was cooked to perfection and Risotto was a super...

We had dinner at Il Villaggio for the first time. Three different areas to dine in, including a very nice outdoor patio. The salad we had consisted of green beans, tomatoes and potatoes with garlic. Excellent. The tomatoes in particular tasted like they were just picked. Add the 3 different breads and the mozzarella sticks we shared for an appetizer... More
