My husband and I had dinner at this location, as it was very close to our hotel. The aroma hit you from the parking lot. The Italian bread was fresh and delicious. The salad was crisp, with a nice zesty dressing. The pizza, oh the pizza, was fabulous. Perfect amount of cheese and sauce. The price was above average for... More

Pizza was excellent, good the next day too. Clams & Linguine were ideal just the right amount of pasta, garlicky and lots of tender clams.

Having been to Villagio in the past and having been satisfied with the food, we were disappointed in our dining experience last night (July 24, 2016). The minestrone was thick with beans with very little liquid, so it was almost solid. No bread or crackers came to the table until we were almost through eating our soup. My partner had... More

We dined here with family. They have nice menu selections and very tasty salads. The pizza was very good and cooked New York Style. Prices are reasonable and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Since my last review of this restaurant they had a change of ownership. And with it went the outstanding quality of the food. Not only the service is inattentive these days, also the pizzas are not comparable anymore with what you found here a few years ago. But prices are still high. Even Round Table is a better choice.

Greeted by a super friendly outgoing server who even held open the door, was the start to a great experience dining at Villagio. They started off with tasty warm garlic bites, which the server recommended added Parmesan cheese to, if we did not have a lactose issue. We ordered pizza and a meatball sandwich. Both were made fresh. We watched... More

My family was craving pizza and Italian but didn't feel like Dominoes or Pizza Hut and we also didn't feel like leaving the house. A friend told me Villagio delivered so I called to see if they would deliver to us and they said YES even though we don't like that close to the restaurant which was cool. We ordered... More

At the recommendation of a friend, we tried Villagio for some pizza after a day of golf. It was a very easy place to find, parking was abundant and the restaurant seemed to have plenty of business for the evening. We ordered a couple of different pizza's to try and they were both very good. The crust is thin like... More

Stopped in Palm Desert during a cross-country trip. Looked for a place to eat and stumbled upon Villagio. We each ordered a salad and split the roasted 1/2 chicken dinner. Food was really good, service was really good, as well. Items ordered by other diners looked really good, as well. Definitely worth trying.

I would have rather purchased a frozen pizza from the market. The price was high and the food was terrible. Their customer service sucked ! I would not recommend or at there again. Yuck

The idea of Villagio comes from a marriage between time and place; the old neighborhoods of New York City and the abundant plains of California. What California brings to the table figuratively and literally, is its abundance of fresh produce, fresh starts, and the opportunity to reinvent. And so it was with these two places and time in mind that we set out to build a restaurant that would meld the two. With pizza dough made from scratch, hand stretched and cooked in a traditional pizza oven, our proprietary pizza sauce and the freshest of ingredients, Villagio invites you to dig in and enjoy our food, our warmth, and our relaxing ambiance. A place where old world tradition, meets new world freshness.
