    Veal was a 10 out of 10. Great cocktails. Red sauce was a 2 of 10. Ordered some pasta on the side because nothing comes w the main dishes. The sauce was the only reason the dinner wasn’t perfect Seafood looked awesome. Black Tie service! Love this place

    It was our first visit but not our last. The atmosphere old world, service conscientious, food simply elegant. Our seafood salad was outstanding, a beautiful mixture of shellfish dressed with the right blend of olive oil and lemon. The NY strip steak was cooked to perfection with a delicate potato croquette accompaniment. The pistachio gelato was one of the best we have had. It was a very nice evening.

    Everything was excellent from the service to the food and drinks. This is a great place to dine for a special occasion or business meal. The room has a classic, timeless feel to it. The service was impeccable - very friendly and attentive. Would definitely return here. Hopefully our waiter forwarded my business card to the chef to see if there is anything we can offer on the menu - Paris Gourmet of New York, Inc., Carlstadt, NJ.

    Extensive menu and while it does have an Italian menu, there was a large selection of fish and meat entrees, plus an extensive menu of specials. The food was well prepared and delicious. We enjoyed Sea Bass, a short rib special with mushroom risotto and filet mignon.

    The place is very clean and they have it all down to a science. The food is delicious and always taste fresh. The fish was moist and cut like butter. I didn’t even need a knife. The staff is extremely friendly and know what they are doing.

    This is John’s lady friend responding! Though I did attend a company Christmas party many years ago, I had wanted to have dinner @ Il Villaggio for my birthday in April. However since my birthday was a Sunday, it was a bit disappointing that the venue does not serve dinner on Sundays! So I finally had the chance to dine there Wed., 8/3/22. I thoroughly loved the ambience as soon as I walked in! The dinner choices are nicely varied, & my choice…Veal Florentine was just delicious! Oh, the mussels in white sauce, (which I never had) were very good & I was surprised at how many were in the dish! Though I don’t expect to return there soon, hopefully John will take me there again someday!
