    On a recommendation from a friend, I tried the Pork Chop dinner. The sauce was very tasty but the pork chop was overdone and the inside was dry and like cardboard. The sauce help offset that shortcoming. The Broccoli-Rabe had a good flavor but parts of it was too chewy. Sorry, the dinner did not meet expectations. Jack

    I realize that it was a holiday and there needs to a level of patience, but this was the worst service I have ever had. The server was clearly overwhelmed beyond his ability to recover our poor experience. It was our first time dining at the restaurant and we had anticipated it being an amazing experience. I don't think will return.

    Went for Father’s Day dinner - they used their regular menu, which was a plus and they also had specials for the day. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient, however needs to learn that it’s not appropriate to reach across in front of someone when clearing plates, when serving, etc. At first felt rushed since soup and salads were served and than right behind was the shrimp cocktail instead of giving time to eat soup first. Shrimp bisque with crabmeat was delicious, except there isn’t a single piece of shrimp in it only some crabmeat. Entrees were very good - veal chop parmigiana is huge! The penne ala vodka was not as creamy as expected and more to the red side for the sauce than blush. The special of lightly breaded tilefish over sautéed spinach was perfect. Desserts were wonderful - the special mixed berry light cheesecake was very good and so was the mango sorbet. Restaurant was very busy, seated right at reservation time and felt safety protocols were being used to ensure diners safety. Would definitely return.

    We did an early Father's Day dinner. My boyfriend's oysters were fresh and cold, just the way he liked them. He ordered the special of the day Tile Fish and it was prepared excellently. I ordered the Branzino which was also excellently prepared. We really enjoyed the dinner.

    Usually a very good meal....delicious food. This time I chose a veal dish and the veal was rather tough and difficult to chew and swallow. I will definitely return but select different entree.

    We had a party of 8 celebrating our friends anniversary. Il Villagio was one of our best dining experiences ! From the moment we entered, we were greeted by the friendly hostesses and seated in a beautiful dining room. Our server Joe was friendly, professional, and most efficient. The food was superb! Il Villagio earned 5 stars from our entire party!

    Everything was absolutely amazing. It was our first time here and we were celebrating our anniversary and I could not have been happier to choose Il Villaggio. Our server Paolo was kind and attentive and gave excellent food and wine recommendations! The calamari and cheese platter appetizers were excellent. For dinner we had the veal mare monte and scallops risotto, both of which were cooked to perfection and delicious. The desserts were amazing as well, I definitely recommend the crime brûlée cheesecake and the lava cake. From start to finish, it was an incredible dinner and experience and I will definitely be returning. Thank you so much to the staff for creating such a wonderful experience for us!

    We waited more than an hour before our food was served. 3 specials of the sea Bass were ordered and 1 of the seafood dish with Linguine, scallops, shrimp, clams and mussels and calamari. There was an appetizer of octopus. The octopus was good and portion appropriate. When the meals arrived it was quite a surprise that the sea bass was very small and the sauce had little flavor. The seafood dish had shrimp the size of my little finger, one scallop and 3 tiny clams and 2 or 3 mussels. That dish had a good flavor but not much seafood.

    This was our first trip to Il Villaggio. My wife had the arugula salad & the bolognese. The food was excellent. Very large portions, she brought some home along with some truffle fries which were some of the best we have had anywhere. I had 2 specials the grilled octopus appetizer & the squid ink pasta with shrimp, clams & crabmeat with a pesto sauce. Spectacular as well. Unfortunately we both overate & didn't get to try the excellent selection of desserts which we were told are all house made. Next time we have the dessert first. Service was top notch also.

    I reserved a table for date night and requested that we be seated in the fireplace room. When we arrived I was told there was no table in that room and was led to another room which had only one table occupied with a couple and their 2 infant children who were crying and causing havoc the entire evening. Hardly a good atmosphere for date night! There were several other rooms with availability so this was indeed unpardonable. I understood there not being availability to my choice but my "date night" description certainly should have given the fellow who showed us to a table obviously hadn't read my request or was just clueless.

    We dined on Mother’s Day, and as with all holidays, I expected it to be busy and they surely were. And perhaps understaffed. I am a very patient person, and was understanding of the long wait to be served and low service, but matters made worse when I was charged for food I did not order. Service was so hectic I was In a rush to pay and get out and when looking at my bill at home, I was charged for 2 crab cakes when I only ordered one. Very disappointed.

    They are not suited for large crowds. Granted it was Mother’s Day and expected to be busy. It took at least an hour for our food to arrive. Server never gave us any updates or checked on us to see if there was anything we wanted while we waited. Once our food arrived, it was cold and dried out. That gave me the impression that our food was actually ready at least 15 minutes prior but was never delivered to our table. As much as I always loved this place, I’ll think twice before going on a holiday.
