Il Villaggio has a deli next door to the restaurant, which is where you should go for lunch to get a spectacular deal at a spectacular price. They offer a dozen pasta specials for $5.50, and you can't beat the price or quality. I always get the pasta with sausage in cream sauce, and it's yummy. The portions are a... More

This place seems empty, old and outdated, but then the food came out, and realized why it so well respected. I hope to go back soon.

Il Villagio has been around for as long as I can remember. I haven't eaten there in 20 years and had the opportunity to dine here a couple of weeks ago. The decor was dated. The food was very average. Service was good.

Went to a party at villaggio restaurant while the service was excellent I can not say the same for the food. lets start with the salad vinaigrette was very salty, on to penne pasta in vodka sauce. I have had better vodka sauce out of a jar. The veal dish I had they pound the veal so thin it is... More

I hadn't been here for lunch or dinner in ages, so when I met a friend for lunch this was a pleasant surprise. We both had the daily specials of fish, which were delicious. In fact, I brought 1/2 of my lunch home due to the large size portions. It's a great place for a party too, as they have... More

Il Villaggio has been around for 30 years and the reason why is that it offers good food at reasonable prices, a pleasant atmosphere and good service. It is located in a small strip mall set far back from Route 10 East. There is plenty of parking. The small eating area when you first enter is ok, but then there... More

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, who is pretty particular... 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

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
