  • Comfort Food
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 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.

I find the food preparation inconsistent. Visit before this one it was excellent. This time, not so good. Too salty, not too tender chicken and dry pasta side. Very disappointing. Visiting friends not too impressed either.

We eat at Villagio on a regular basis. I wasn't crazy about it, until I tried the blackboard special of Baramundi. It's a mild, white fish prepared in a garlic sauce with capers. The side veggies are great.

Unfortunately, we went for Happy Hour and ordered several drinks and about 5 of your appetizers from the HH menu. The only one we liked was the sausage/garlic dish. But the
calamari was too tough to eat, the pizza was bland, shrimp was OK, the artichoke was not good.
We all felt all the dishes were greasy and felt bad for the rest of the night.

Next time, we will avoid all appetizers and just order from the regular menu. This was our 2nd
visit - First time we enjoyed our meal and that is why we took our friends from out of town to
your restaurant.

Pizzas looked really good (and tasted good).

Service was very sub par - dishes all left on tables that had left. Auctioning off food at the table (not knowing who ordered what). No real quality check. Disappointed for a well reviewed restaurant.

Ambiance more like a pizzeria than a restaurant. Food was mediocre at best - pasta dishes we had were just not that tasty and portions were too big.

This restaurant is trying to get its reputation back after a change of ownership, a change in menu and a change in interior design. While the food is almost back to its previous quality, there is still a need to improve service. There were five of us eating dinner and three entrees were served with a gap of about ten minutes before the other two diners were served. This is unacceptable and needs to be fixed.

I gathered a group of 8 friends for a post-performance dinner, one of us was performing, the remainder were all attending. The restaurant could not have been a better choice. The professionals on staff are nonpareil, and everyone in my party enjoyed his or her meal. The best part, after the event was over, every single member of the party contacted me separately and said, "What a great choice of places to go!"

Extremely slow service. Multiple managers never bothered to check on our table, mostly standing around chatting with each other. Received dirty silverware twice. Red potatoes were a mixture of over-cooked and under-cooked potatoes.

Happy Hour is great. You get to try a lot of different dishes (all of which were good) and by sitting st the bar you get attentive personal service. We’ll be back. ;)

Very inexpensive considering the quality and quantity of food you receive. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and my wife had the chicken parmesan and both were excellent and enough for lunch the next day at home. Can understand why they were voted the best Italian and pizza restaurant in the Valley.

We really enjoy Villagio; however, their calamari was not very good this time: over cooked, dried out and rubbery. Usually it is lightly fried and very tender. We still enjoyed our meal and we would still recommend. Everyone has an off night.
