Food was delicious as always. The restaurant seemed to be understaffed.
We spent a lot of the time waiting and we were a party of 2.
Server was very pleasant, but clearly had his hands full trying to attend to tables.

Two veal chops. One grilled, one butterflied and made with parmigiana. Both magnificent.

Service could not be better. All concerned where attentive.

While a bit pricy, we'll be back.

Two soups were offered Beef and Shrimp Bisque. We had both and they were luscious and traditionally made. Bisque had a sprinkling of crab meat. We shared a Long Hots Stuffed with Cheese appetizer, which was, expectedly, very hot but well presented. Our entree was Veal Piccatta with julienned squash and carrots, also nicely prepared. Spaghetti Carbonara met the same pleasant level of satisfaction. The bread was well-made with a crunchy crust and red oily dipping sauce, just right for all courses. We had no time for dessert but the Tortufe would have been excellent. This was a busy time at the restaurant with larger groups leaving and arriving for events and diners in all size groups enjoying pleasant conversation. My seat faced the entry to the busy kitchen, which was somewhat distracting. Our waiter Michael and the other staffers are professional and cordial. We have driven by this place for decades, and are glad we finally visited.

Love the beef carpaccio. It was a very busy Friday. The main course was a little slow coming out of the kitchen, but our waiter was very attentive, coming back to check on us.
He did an excellent job considering he said he has only been there one month.

The food is something to talk about every time I go to Ill Villaggio. I've seen negative reviews for the service but I've never had anything but fantastic service. Last night I had the Veal Mare Monte and it gave me butterflies while eating it, it was so good. My only disappointment last night was that they did not have the grilled octopus as an appetizer. Sarah did a great job and was very knowledgable.

Visit every week! Love this restaurant.
Was very disappointed last night with noise level.
Large party in same room extremely obnoxious!
Management should have reminded this party that there
we’re other diners in there that were celebrating as well!
Hard to have a conversation the noise level was atrocious!!
Everything else always 5star!!!

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is outstanding. The homemade Pappardelle with seafood was unbelievable. The tile fish was one of the best I’ve ever had. We even got serenaded because two tables were celebrating an anniversary and a birthday! Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and knew just what to say and when to say it. I absolutely love Il Villagio. Kudos to the entire staff.

I have been to Il Villaggio numerous times and my expectations are always exceeded. It's my go-to for bringing out of town business associates and they always rave about the food and service. Last night was no exception. Our appetizers and main dishes were cooked to perfection. Our waiter, pretty sure his name was Mark, is a professional. He knows the menu and specials backwards and forwards. His care and attention to our table was spot on. The big and enjoyable surprise is when he came out with a guitar and sang Happy Birthday and a few other songs to a patron at the table next to us. Wow! His voice and playing were a delight. Overall a perfect evening with guests that insures I'll be returning and recommending Il Villagio again and again.

The ambiance was nice at the restaurant. Service was very slow and it took a long time for them to bring certain things (30 min for an ice bucket which we did not get until we asked 3 different servers). The meal was decent but we felt that it was nothing special and lacked seasoning. Compared to other Italian restaurants in the area, we felt that this restaurant was not noteworthy.

Overall a bit disappointed. We went for lunch, but only a dinner menu was offered. I liked my Gnocchi Adriatico, but felt it could have benefitted by additional seafood. Crabmeat was hard to notice. My biggest turnoff was the Chicken Parmesan. It was very basic, with a side of pasta which appeared to have a ladle full of bright red tomato sauce piled on top. It had no real presentation. I guess I expected this restaurant, where everything is a la carte, would be a step up from what can be received at a pizzeria restaurant. I am also accustomed to very good Italian food at home so perhaps my standards are a bit higher when I go out than most. Otherwise, our service was very good and the restaurant has very nice ambiance.
