It was our first time there. My wife's dish was a little too spicy but other than that the food was really good. the service was also really good too. Our only compliant were the ants. The first table we were seated at was a nice table in the back but it had ants. Personally, I could live with a few (I know most would disagree with me) but it was to the point where even I had a problem with them. They seated us at another table and even though it was an improvement, that one had ants too. It would have been nice if they would have done more to mitigate the issue.

I imagine this is an anomaly and not the norm so I would say it is definitely worth a try.

This restaurant is nothing short of fantastic. I came here for my birthday dinner and it was amazing. Food was delicious probably the best Italian food I've ever had. The wait staff made me feel like I was a celebrity and the owner luigi himself came to my table to introduce himself. Amazing dinning experience this restaurant is second to none.

As usual, outstanding food. Staff is so accommodating. Huge portions of perfectly prepared food. Any requests is cheerfully fulfilled. We celebrated a birthday and all the waitstaff came out to sing. Truly feel that all the employees like each other. Terrific vibe among the help from the minute you walk in. One of our favorite restaurants.

We've been going to Il Vizio for quite a while, and it never disappoints. This time, an old college friend and her son were visiting for the weekend. We wanted to take them somewhere special, and Il Vizio was the top of the list. They were amazed at how good the food was!

We had a reservation for 5:00pm today, and received a call from the restaurant to inform us they had a large party which was scheduled to end at 5:00pm, and could we bear with them in seating us a soon as they could. I like that they called us so we didn't show up early and had to wait for a table. Though the party was still going on when we arrived, the staff did not ignore us and seated us right away. Kudos to the management.

Food was very good, wait staff attentive. Only drawback was the desserts could have been thawed prior to serving.

Would definitely recommend and will return.

Been here a bunch of times, it was always great. However this time they had a 2 piece band that was way to loud. Could not even attempt to have any business conversations. This continued even though we were the only table in the place at the end of the night. Never again on a Thursday night

Our first visit to Il Vizio. Service was attentive and pleasant. Food was fairly good, although artichoke hearts appetizer was cold on the inside and warm on the outside. Lighting was a bit too high, which took away from ambience.

Our visit was soured somewhat when, after we had heard waiters tell diners at the 2 tables next to us that coffee and after-dinner drinks were on the house, no such offer was made to us (which we expected after hearing them talk to the other patrons). Then our experience was further diminished when the manager made his displeasure clear when I called him afterward him to make sure we got credit on Open Table for our reservation (after we had received an email from Open Table saying our reservation had been canceled). I doubt we will be back.

We enjoyed a wonderful family dinner on Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018. This was our first time to this local restaurant and it won't be the last. The food was outstanding and the waiters were great. You can have individual or family style dishes.

I rarely write reviews. Also work in the industry. Heard great things about this place. Food was outstanding and portions extremely generous.
Very picky about service. There seemed to be two servers, a bus boy, bartender and food runner for the entire restaurant. Team service works as long as you communicate. I do not want to be asked twice if I’d like a drink, nor be told the specials twice within a matter of minutes. If I am asked twice for a drink, it should be brought quickly and not have to ask a third time for it. Buffalo broccoli???? GET IT
Oil mix with warm bread and tiramisu were outstanding. I may be pickier than others. Def a great place and will be back!

The staff was great. I have never been there before but have brought some gift cards. One of my gift cards didn’t work - I’m sure they thought I was lying. But in a classy move they gave me a replacement card. Besides that the food was amazing. Cold seafood salad was one of the best I have ever had. I had an excellent swordfish special. Stuffed artichoke was perfect. My husband had a veal dish with vinegar peppers which was delicious and my mother in law had a special of Osso Bucco that we all tried and loved. Finished with a perfect Italian cheesecake. Definitely going back.

Joseph was our waiter and was absolutely delightful. He was accommodating and so helpful- he truly made our experience enjoyable.

The food was delicious. We got the grilled calamari appetizer and it was so tender and perfectly seasoned.
Both entrees were a hit and we will definitely be back.
