“I really wanted to like it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

As a local resident, I want to like Villaggio. My wife and I have been there about 5 or 6 times. We have seen the place just kind of do a slow slide over time. I don't think we will be back. The restaurant seems dirty, the food just ok, and the prices a little high for what you are getting.

There is an Olive Garden about a mile away. While I want to support the local restaurants over the chains, it's hard when the restaurant is bad. It's a shame too, because the restaurant has a nice interior.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

I went here for my bday dinner with 6 other friends. We sat under a perhola table inside and it was cute setting! We had music played by guitar and singer guy, and my steak and salad were great! Not dirty at all! Ignore that review in my opinion!

You will LOVE Villagio's! It is one of our favorite restaurants in Manahawkin and even LBI! You get delicious Italian food and everything is fresh and made to order. You will not be disappointing.

“High Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Food here is quite delicious. A tad bit on the expensive side but you get what you pay for. Nice menu and open kitchen adds to the experience
