Very good meals

My wife and I had dinner at Il Villagio's for the second time recently. I had the Chicken Parmigiana and my wife had the Salmon with Peppercorn, etc (I forget what else came on the salmon). Both meals were excellent. My portion was quite large and I barely finished (rare for me LOL) and my wife... read more

I reviewed this place quite a while ago. It is a landmark local restaurant and we know many of the waitstaff. First, ambiance: it is deteriorating and really looks dingy. One feels that it hasn't been cleaned in a while, although I suspect that is not really the case. Dark and gloomy, even on a good day. The outside dining... More

a long time customer - my last visit was disappointing and was the bottom of the drop to mediocre food preparation . for what it's worth; the veal marsala was tough , in spite of having been pounded, the marsala sauce was bland and watery. suggest using cookbook and follow directions and the sauce has to better than the current...

When a restaurant is in business for over 30 years you'd think that good food and service might be the reason for that; unfortunately, we didn't find that to be true here. I had high expectations when I saw the older waiters and waitresses, long-time employees, I thought. Upon entry, we were led through the front of the restaurant past... More

If you are looking for an affordable place to eat, Il Villaggio is it! It is a BYOB and there food is excellent. I eat here alot and also get food to go frequently. Their food is always delicious and consistently great. And if I could make a recommendation on something to eat, the Chicken Grattinato or the Fish Grattinato... More

Have been here several times over many years, and the food is quite good and affordable. They don't gouge you like other restaurants in the area. Their salads are huge---easily can split this between 2 people. Entrees are very generous in portion size as well. This is a BYO liquor place, and they will open the bottle for you and... More

I don't care if people say the food is great here at the deli next to the Il Villagio restaurant, but I will not be returning to this spot ever again. Not one, not two but three staff were extremely rude. at this deli, "customer is never right" here. Rude, rude, rude.

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday night in October 2014. The restaurant in general needed a good sprucing up. To be honest, it seemed like the walls & floor could have used some attention, mop on the floor and paint on the walls. Our meals were just ok, not great. If you wanted a salad, it was extra....

I do not know what has happened to this anchor Morris County Italian restaurant. After a mediocre experience during the summer, we went there last Friday night. The restaurant was not too crowded but for the patio. We were seated after a bit of a wait...no reason for that. After ordering, we waited another 45 minutes for our food to... More

This was our first and will be our last visit to Il Villagio. This restaurant is badly in need of a spruce-up ... just look at the floors, walls, tables/chairs, fake plants. Who would want to eat in that atmosphere, but we did anyway. We ordered the clam appetizer special ... attempted to eat 1 each and found they were... More
