    Valentine'sDay had a set menu, but there was good choices. Being Ash Wednesday made it a little more difficult. It seemed like many regulars were there. Overall we had a nice time.

    I have never been a fan of a pre-fixed menu. This is one of the best restaurants ever. Prefixed meals are typically production based and not as good. True here as well. Il Villagio is a great restaurant. Offer if the main menu always.

    Always an excellent meal. Service outstanding. Can’t find a better high end Italian restaurant. Appetizers, entrees, dessert, bottle of wine <$200/couple. (Not “value” but very reasonable for a high end restaurant).

    Brought friends to try IL for the first time. Unfortunately, the experience for them fell a little short. Staffing seemed off and we waited quite a while for our order to be taken. The service was a little slow. While our meals were very good, our guests were not happy with theirs. Their veal chop was undercooked and our guest refused to send it back to the kitchen. We enjoy this restaurant and will continue to go back while our friends will not. That won't stop us from recommending or bringing other friends to this restaurant.

    Filet Mignon was a little overcook when I specifically asked for "med-well" but it looks like the chef did well-done. A little burnt on the top but no complaint since it is like a butter when slicing. Next time, please understand that there is difference between med-well and well-done.
