  • "We were seated right away. The food was delicious and the wine selection was well above average. It was a little loud but what do you expect for the 4th of July weekend. We try to dine there every time we travel to Orange Beach."

  • "We travel to the beach every summer and discovered this place last year. It was so good we came back. We were not disappointed and to top it off we had the same GREAT waiter.....James. Every bit of the meal was wonderful. We look forward to our next trip."

  • "We come from Michigan and always make plans to eat at Villagio's. Wife and I have been here 6 different times and tried something different on the menu each time only to be completely overwhelmed by the taste and presentation of the food. Great service and very friendly. Makes us feel at home. Prices very acceptable."

  • "The service was exceptional. The food was not. We enjoyed the light show and the hula hoop contest. Location is great."

  • "Went twice on my trip to Orange Beach. I have two small kids, and both times the wait staff was very sweet in accommodating them (and helping ensure they did not disturb other diners). The risotto was excellent, and I was particularly impressed the kitchen produced an excellent risotto when we were the final seating at 10 PM the second night - thank you. Only negative is the bruschetta - not Italian bruschetta; if you order it expecting that you will be disappointed."

  • "We booked our dinner from viewing the menu only, and were surprised by the atmosphere. It was such fun...especially with the musical light show in the courtyard ! We were not expecting it. We will certainly go back next year when visiting ."

  • "I made a reservation at this restaurant for 5 people based on the menu posted on line. When I arrived the dinner menu looked nothing like what was on line. It was a bit over priced for what we got, but at the least service was excellent."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "My husband and I had dinner here for the first time. We ate outside and were treated to a light show along the palm tree lined lane with music to match. The food was wonderful except a bit salty for my taste. We had the mussels, scallops and grouper. Each had it's own special flavor. We would definitely come again."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I had reservations for outside dining if possible. It was to chilly. Instead of a nice table inside we were placed in the back next to the drink machine. There were six of us and it was a special event. I am very sad about the evening."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Brown butter grouper is always my choice. Also enjoy pizzas. I husband said his porkchop was one of the best he's ever had. "

  • "Could have more reasonable specials . Bar tender cannot make drinks, puts what taste like 7up in our Manhattans on the rocks , then when we complained & just asked for bourbon on rocks put in a tiny glass filled w/ ice. Drinks not worth the price!"

  • "What a great meal for our entire party! We love your restaurant!"

  • "First time ever at the Villaggio Grille and were a little disappointed that was not able to receive Red Snapper as we had looked on the menu before coming. Waiter went out of his way to be nice and pleasant. "

  • "We arrived for our reservation and were told about the special. My girlfriend and I ordered special and an appetizers. My daughter's friend ordered a menu pizza special with no mushrooms (she is allergic). 5 minutes later the waiter comes back and informs us that the restaurant is out of the specials and the appetizer I had ordered. So we re-order. 45 minutes later no food. They forgot the no mushrooms and had to remake the pizza So after an hour they served 3 luke warm meals and a hot pizza. We told them of the food temperature. They offered to remake them but we were too tired. Probably good food but the service was poor. They apologized and comped the entrees. "

  • "Best place in the area! We have gone each trip to the beach past three years, always amazing! Grouper is best ever!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "After discovering this restaurant last year, we make plans to eat here every time we visit Orange Beach. Entrees are mid $20's but worth every penny. The Brown Butter Grilled Grouper is my favorite.. a must try (you will be hooked)! We also tried the Seafood Pasta this go around and it was rich but very good. The lump crab meat mixed in the sauce was my favorite part. Overall, a great dining experience!"

  • "Fine dining at the beach is hard to find, however, Villagio has hit it out the park ! Our favorite in the Orange Beach/Perdido Key area."

  • "We make sure we eat at Villagio at least once with each visit to Orange Beach. We are never disappointed.,"

  • "We arrived a few minutes early for a 6:00 reservation on a Sunday evening. Once we were seated, we waited 8 or 10 minutes before anyone stopped by our table. The hostess came to check on us and quickly had the server at our table. The server was very polite, but our food took a very long time to arrive. Three other tables close to us arrived after we did and were gone before we got our check. Our meal was not complicated, and should not have taken nearly that long to arrive at our table. We had a meatball appetizer, a pizza, and a pork chop. The atmosphere was nice and the food was very good, but the long wait for food and service made it a disappointing experience...not what I wanted for our first anniversary."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We arrived one hour early for our reservation...we were hungry and asked if we could be seated and give our time slot to another. We were accommodated and furnished a great meal. We will return."

  • "I brought my wife here for her birthday. We made a reservation online and it actually worked. As we arrived at the restaurant 10 minutes early, they greeted and us and we were at our table for 6 quickly. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable of the drinks, food, appetizers and the activities going on around the town. Very impressive. The food was incredible. We all had something a little different (Steak, Snapper, Pork chop, etc.) and it was all excellent. The overall experience at this restaurant was Outstanding. I must say that, while we were there, we felt as though we were the most important people in this very busy restaurant. Great all around experience."

  • "Our food was great, pricing reasonable, service was very good. The noise level however was a little too high...really difficult to carry on a conversation. They need some sound insulation..."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Went for a late lunch and the food was very good. There weren't many customers at that hour so the noise level was very low. The only thing to complain about was that it was very cold in the restaurant as the A/C was running full blast and the outdoor temp didn't call for the A/C to be on. Also had to request drink refills from the waiter which shouldn't have been necessary especially since the place wasn't very busy. The woodfired oysters were among the smallest I had ever seen and there were pieces of shell in the several of the oysters otherwise the food was very good."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Food was excellent. Service is usually good at this restaurant, but not Saturday night. We eat there frequently and hope this doesn't happen again."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Villaggio has become one of our all-time favorites! We have never had anything other than exquisite food as well as service here. All their staff provide wonderful service but Michael and James are especially attentive. Appetizers, entrees and desserts are paced perfectly. You will never feel like you are being rushed, which is particularly important to my husband and I."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "At the recommendation of a friend, we decided to give Villaggio a second chance. Glad we did, as we enjoyed the food, the service and the wine!! All were excellent! Our dining experience was much better than when we previously had experienced Villaggio which was several years ago. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, which in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, there are not many fine dining options."

  • "Villaggio Grille was an excellent find. I've been coming to Orange Beach for over 20 years and this restaurant is absolutely one of the very best. In fact, we're coming back to Orange Beach with 2 other couples next month at the end of Janaury 2014, and have already added a dinner at Villagio Grille to our schedule. The most outstanding features include: great service, high quality wine and liquor offerings, and wonderful food---almost none of it fried --unless you count the oysters!!"
