About

The idea of Villagio comes from a marriage between time and place; the old neighborhoods of New York City and the abundant plains of California. What California brings to the table figuratively and literally, is its abundance of fresh produce, fresh starts, and the opportunity to reinvent. And so it was with these two places and time in mind that we set out to build a restaurant that would meld the two.

With pizza dough made from scratch, hand stretched and cooked in a traditional pizza oven, our proprietary pizza sauce and the freshest of ingredients, Villagio invites you to dig in and enjoy our food, our warmth, and our relaxing ambiance. A place where old world tradition, meets new world freshness.

The business was already closed for business and yet your OPEN TABLE website was not updated and still allowed me to make reservation. We all drove there for nothing. I was embarrassed to my guests from Washington.

We arrived at the restaurant and lights were out with a "closed" sign. Change of ownership and new name starting next wnteek..Zero disregard for letting loyal patrons know! Met our dinner friends and went elsewhere. Poor customer relations!

This was our first time going to this restaurant and we were dining with two other people. The hostess seated up promptly and our waitress followed shortly. The waitress took our drink order and served them. She then took our food order. We ordered an appetizer and a pizza. The other couple ordered a pizza and molten lava cake. The waitress brought our pizza. We never did get our appetizer. The pizza was very good. Then came the molten lava cake. Looked good but there was no 'lava' in the cake! Called the waitress over to tell her and she didn't say anything, just put our bills down and walked away. We finished up, never hearing from he waitress again except for her comment when we were leaving - Sorry it wasn't an exceptional visit. Wouldn't recommend this restaurant and won't be going back.

Went on Saturday and have already been back. Service and food were great. I heard the pizza is amazing so have to try it. My wife had the eggplant and I the ravioli, the sauce is better than hers'. Meatballs for appetizer was perfect but an odd number so I had to eat the extra one. We thorough enjoyed our visit. I went back and got a sandwich for lunch and I was not disappointed. Lots of meat and their homemade chips are really good.

We chose this place for dinner because of the Best Pizza designation. I must say this pizza was not at all best. It was soggy in the middle and we ended up out the door with a medium specialy pizza and a 10” margarita for over $70. The slice is a much better pizza and better value. I don’t think we will be going back to this restaurant.

We came for my wife’s birthday dinner with friends. The food was delicious, very big servings. Can definitely do family style. The pizza we had was delicious, the toppings were killer. Appetizer and happy hour deals were great! The restaurant is interestingly laid out. It is very long, and each side has a different style. We were hoping and expecting to sit on the nicer more intimate feeling side and we didn’t. They didn’t seem to be seating that side when we visited. Our server was great, very helpful and had a very pleasant demeanor and great smile! Look forward to coming back for the pizza when I can eat carbs again!

My husband and I think this is the best pizza in the desert. Whenever we want an Italian meal with salad, beer and good service we come to Pizzeria Villagio. Hopefully it will be around for a long time! Easy to park and not in a crowded area.

The vegetable sides I order were overcooked mush. My chicken parmesan with spaghetti pomodoro was fair but nothing special. Only half of the house chips that came with my wife's meatball sub were edible. the other half were barely cooked and completely limp.

The restaurant's ambiance is bi-polar with half the restaurant looking like a diner and the other half somewhat more upscale. I was very disappointed given that they were apparently voted on of the to local Italian restaurants.

Didn't know what to expect going in but the food was great, service was bit slow but not that bad.
Everyone in our group of 4 enjoyed the food served.
Even the pizza that we brought back home was great after 10 minutes in oven.
