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

We ordered the calamari and the il vallaggio special pizza. It was large and delicious. We took 1/2 home. It is also a byo which is great.

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!
