We came for dinner at 8:45 after a concert, so the restaurant was quiet. The servers were excellent and didn't rush us even though it was late and we were the last ones there. The food was very good and served in a timely manner. We will return!

I've eaten at Il Villaggio on several occasions. I've never had a bad meal, I'd even say the food is exceptional. The servers are personable and the service is excellent. If you like Italian food, and who doesn't, Il Villaggio is the place to go!

We have never been disappointed and have dined there many times. The service is impeccable. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, the noise level is low, and the dining room is inviting with warm colors, soft lighting, comfortable seating. The food is exceptional — innovative specials, excellent menu selections, beautifully prepared and presented.

Always a pleasurable experience. The oysters casino were excellently prepared. The grilled calamari was super tasty, although I would prefer it be sliced before serving it. For dinner I had the gnocchi with crabmeat and the blush sauce, it was delicate and outstanding. My wife had the pescatore which was fabulous and our daughter really enjoyed her seafood dish. The desserts were really out of this world. I always recommend this place! Love it!

This is an excellent restaurant. Food, service, and facility outstanding. And, it's a BYO. In Summer try the outdoor patio that is a delight. In Winter they have a large working fireplace that creates a cozy warm environment. This is one of the best in New Jersey!!!

Going to a restaurant on Mother's Day is always a questionable proposition, but Il Villaggio always handles holidays with grace and professionalism. The service was excellent and the fare was excellent. This is the best byob on the area!

Busy Friday night. Service was very good. The tortinlini soup was un even with a cream base. The fruitti de Mar was delicious, but, was lacking in seafood. My mates chicken Parmesan was a bit dry, but, the kitchen sent out more sauce. The big disappointment came at the conclusion of our dinner. I requested a candle in my wife's dessert, as was her birthday, and I requested a few staff take a minute to sign happy birthday. But, our waitress dropped a dish if creme brulee with a candle, and left, no singing here. I realize it was busy, but we sat at 730, and dessert was served around 930, and the place was practically empty, so, a few staff were available to sing, but chose not to. Disappointing

Six of us had dinner Friday night. My octopus/salmon carpaccio appetizer special was out of this world, best I ever had. It had cannellini beans, arugula, drizzled with olive oil. My partner had the grilled calamari and he loved it. For his entree he had the branzino which he loved and I had the capellini with bolognese sauce, excellent! 2 of our friends had the salmon entree and 2 had the veal. It was a fantastic dinner, I highly recommend Il Vilaggio!

The Easter Menu did not offer enough of a variety. Most entrees contained crab or shrimp, not allowing anyone like myself with a shellfish allergy to enjoy a selection of dishes. The Fish Special I was able to eat was very small, dry and much too expensive. Will not return.

Our waiter disappeared several times throughout our meal and we had to flag down another waiter to assist. He did not seem apologetic either. Soup was lukewarm and gelato was regular ice cream.

We used to love this restaurant, even rented it out for family events in the past. However, this time around our experience was poor. We even inquired if there was a different chef. The food was mostly bad, the service was okay. It was just us and another couple in the restaurant, but we didn't get much attention from the waitress. Got charged extra for a side, that was merely a substitute (my father in law asked for veggies instead of potatoes).

Always an enjoyable dinner at Il Villaggio. Quite a variety appetizers, pasta dishes/secundo, and main course dishes on the menu and specials to boot! We went on a Saturday night so the restaurant was pretty full and of course, several specials. Everything was well prepared and came out of the kitchen together. I had the seafood risotto and it was loaded with much delish seafood all well prepared. Too much to eat, even though I was very hungry. Service is top notch - attentive and never intrusive. We hung on and talked for a while why finishing our wine and were never rushed.
