    Had the green bean salad which is really good. A great start. We also had the lentil soup which was amazingly balance in flavor. The Octopus, while not a big serving because it is an appetizer was extremely flavorful and delightful. I had the chicken paillard, which was perfectly balance with sweet and hot peppers. A great meal. This is a go to for us. This place is so good I didn't want to write this review because too many people might see it and want to go here.

    This is a relaxed, cozy setting. The lights are dim, the food is excellent, and the service is attentive. It's an older crowd which I like because it is quieter without loud music. If you want to relax and enjoy a nice dinner without hassle (valet parking and we were seated immediately) this is the place to go.

    There are Italian restaurants that abound around us. But Il Villagio (along with Il Capricio) stand out by themselves as doing things just a little bit better and having more class.

    Our “go to” place for a nice dinner. Food is always nicely prepared and the service never disappoints. My vegetarian husband accidentally ordered cannelloni which he thought was stuffed with ricotta but was actually stuffed with meat. His mistake, so he didn’t mention it and only ate the top layer of pasta. The Spiedini appetizer was a large delicious portion so he was full anyway. After the plates were cleared, the waiter noticed that the meal was hardly touched and removed it from the bill which was unexpected but very appreciated. Most places wouldn’t do that. Class act! We will be back soon. Oh, and the tiramisu was delicious!

    We waited 30+min for a table despite having a reservation which was annoying but moreso given that we were coming in to celebrate an anniversary. The food and wine were both overpriced compared to other italian fine dining in the area. Wine was especially overpriced. For example a bottle of riesling was $13 for the glass and $50 for the bottle but I am aware that the wine is sold by the bottle for $13. Overpricing is expected but was above average. We were only asked for drinks in the beginning of our dinner and not frequently checked on for refills. The restaurant’s food was good but comparable to that of other fine dining in nearby cities/area. Not sure if we would go back given the experience as a whole.

    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.
