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.

“Average bland food..nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

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 extensive menu

The bad: no character in the decorations or design. Food was very basic and bland Italian food served simply. Would like to have seen true Italian flavors in a great sauce. Not happening here!

Overall, nice people running a no frills Italian restaurant with bland food. The food like the decor is boring and uninspiring.

“Always great and dependable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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!

“My Favorite Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

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.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

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.
