Awesome!! The staff and food were excellent!!
We greatly appreciate your review and look forward to serving you again!
Excellent service and great menu. Food was very good, the best we've had in Moore County by far. The server knew her wines and gave a very good explanation on the menu items and the way they are prepared. I only wish they didn't have to wear masks, it inhibits good communication.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful review of Villaggio! We are so pleased you enjoyed everything and we hope to serve you again soon!
Kelli did a great job! The food was excellent as always.
Thanks so much. Bernie! We appreciate your review very much and we look forward to serving you again soon!
By far our best experience at Villaggio! The food, the service and the attention to the small things (crumb service, separate table side visits by the Chef and the Owner) made it a most enjoyable evening. If you haven't been - HURRY - ownership is changing at the end of the year.
Thanks for your review, Curtis! We are delighted you enjoyed your dining experience at Villaggio! All of the staff and the chef will remain after the Jan 1 ownership change so we look forward to serving you for some time!
Sat at 5 seat small bar with wife on 60th anniversary.
Katherine tending bar is also 5 Stars.
We are so delighted you had an enjoyable experience especially for your milestone anniversary! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Excellent service, atmosphere, and of course, great food
Thank you! We look forward to your return!
Villagio is a fantastic newish restaurant in the Village of Pinehurst. Reservations should be made at least a week ahead, this place is really popular! All four members of our party were very happy with their meals.
Thank you so much, Trish! We are so happy you and your party enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again soon?!
It was very busy. There was not enough staff. The food was cold.
Menus was eclectic and varied. Service was prompt but not "pushy", we never felt rushed. Cocktails were VERY nice. I was put off a bit by the manager? showing the area for what appeared to be a future party host, seemed out of place during dining hours, should be done when there are no dinners.
We are very happy you enjoyed dining at Villaggio and yes, a manager showing the space for a party while you were dining is not appropriate. Thank you for calling it to our attention! We hope to serve you again soon.
We ordered the beet salad, ravioli special, halibut special, frutti de mare, mousse al cioccolato, and tiramisu. All were fabulous - not a clean plate on the table! For drinks we ordered the pomegranate martini (very good!), the botanical 1865 (good, but not as good as the pomegranate martini, and after dinner we got the chocolate martini - also very good! Our waitress was amazing - wish I remembered her name - and the live music outdoor was a great addition to our dinner. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back!
Thank you so very much for your review! We are very delighted you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again soon!
Perfect service and cuisine. Always a great experience.
We greatly appreciate your review, Garry, and look forward to serving you again soon!
Ms Gary was our server and she made our friend’s birthday dinner very special. The front desk staff was courteous, we had plenty of time to enjoy our cocktail then 3 course dinner. Villaggio is one of the nicest restaurants in the Village of Pinehurst and we enjoy the front porch, the dining room and the back patio. New owners take note—please keep the status quo!
Thank you very much for your review! We are delighted you enjoy Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again soon!
The entire experience was excellent. Dinner was delicious. Server was very attentive. Perfect!
Thank you so very much! We appreciate your review and look forward to serving you again!
This is a great restaurant. Have dined here multiple times but have only sat outside on the patio. Wonderful ambiance. Would absolutely recommend.
Thank you very much for your review. We are so happy you enjoy Villaggio and look forward to your return!
This may be the best restaurant in NC! Our server, Tiffany was amazing and made our experience exceptional. I live in South Florida with amazing restaurants on every corner. Villaggio’s is special. We will come back!
Thank you very much! We are so delighted you enjoyed Villaggio and we hope to serve you again on your next visit to Pinehurst!
A difficult review to write. I made reservations for my husbands birthday well ahead of time after reading glowing reviews and looking forward to some fine dining and the service that comes along with it. Parking was difficult to find so I dropped my husband and he went in to be seated. When I arrived I found him in the back bar seated in front of a black wall - two chairs facing a wall with a blowing vent under our feet...I was a bit put out. "Why are you here?" I asked. He replied that he had no idea, the hostess directed him to this "table"; but the bartender was pleasant and he had ordered cocktails. I asked the bartender/server why we were seated in the bar and she had no idea and asked if I had requested bar seating (I hadn't). No suggestion of being moved was offered only that she would make the dinner special, so figuring the restaurant was very full we ordered salads and decided to make the best of it. A manager came over after some time and said he was told we had an issue..."were you a walk-in?". No. "Did we want a table?"...no, because we were in the middle of our salads. Later we saw him speaking with the hostess and pointing our way. So, the hostess was in error, we had a reservation and I had included that it was a special occasion thru Open Table. Not one time did anyone apologize for the error. So it's hard to review the restaurant; I can however review the bar and food. The bartender is lovely, the Caesar salads were very good. We had pasta; Bolognese and Carbonara, both good. We were delivered a dish of chocolate mousse with "Happy Birthday" written on the bottom. Thanks for that. I would have liked to sat at a table with a tablecloth in the dining room but unfortunately by the time that was offered we were already eating (really, who wants to have your food moved?). Like I said, we made the best of it but the hostess messed up and no one fessed up. I hope to return and actually enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant, but it's going to be awhile.
Your reservation was for a table on the patio. It rained so we had to move you inside. The hostess asked if your bar seats were okay and your husband said yes. This was the best we could do at the time because of the rain. The GM said he apologized but we had no choice. He offered to relocated you when a table became available. He also offered to cover the air vent. We have no control over the weather. They were trying to do the best they could for you. So glad you enjoyed the food.
All 3 of us were very disappointed with the food. The prices are inflated and the food was mediocre.
One of our favorite places to dine in The Village of Pinehurst - Repeat Customer :)
Thanks, Becca! We appreciate your review and look forward to serving you again soon!

Amazing place - highly recommend it.
Thank you for having us and accommodating us.

We enjoyed our dinners quite a bit. We were celebrating our 42nd anniversary and our waiter brought us a dessert gratis to cap the evening. We then stayed at the Magnolia Inn as well and everyone was extremely friendly.
Thank you very much for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed staying and dining at the Magnolia Inn and Villaggio Ristorante. We hope you will celebrate again with us in the future!
Great special occasion restaurant. The service was spot on. Great menu options and the pasta was fresh and home made. Wonderful wine list. Sitting outside on a beautiful evening added to the entire dinner. We will return for special occasions.
Thank you so very much, Dawn! We are so pleased you enjoyed dining at Villaggio and we look forward to your return.
It was our first visit for my husband's birthday. Impeccable! Food was scrumpy! Service spot on! A wonderful "special occasion" place! Nice and quiet wo it was easy to converse. Just a truly wonderful experience.
We are so delighted you enjoyed your special occasion dinner and we thank you very much for your review!
Wonderful service and food
Thank you very much, Maria! We are so pleased you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again soon.
good service in a nice restaurant with a pleasant surrounding
Thanks very much for your review! We hope to serve you again soon!
Lovely atmosphere and great staff. Food was mediocre: veal chop undercooked & tasteless. Ravioli less than al dente and filled with braised beef that had no flavor. It was saved by the mushroom sauce was good.
So sorry this was your experience! As you can see from many of our reviews, that's quite unusual! We hope you will give Villaggio another try!
What an enchanting venue. I would rate it as romantic. Everything exceeded our expectations. I can't wait to return.
Thank you very much, Linda! We are so pleased you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again.
Sat outside on patio. Food was good but not excellent. Duck was dry and lacked flavor and taste. Wife’s pasta dish was good but sauce was mediocre. Live Music was good.
We are sorry to hear this. The duck is usually terrific and can you tell me which pasta dish you had? Also, can you tell me if the manager came to your table and if so, did you tell them or tell your server? That info would be most helpful. We hope you will give Villaggio another try. As you can see from our many 5-star reviews, our food is normally very good.
The food was excellent, the service was fantastic. A lovely setting in this historic property. The owners and the staff made us feel special - we were certainly well taken care of.
Thanks so much for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed Villaggio and look forward to serving you again!
Food was warm not hot. Service staff pleasant but our table of 3 took a back seat to other much larger groups. Just disappointing.
This is very unusual at Villaggio. We are so sorry this happened to you and we hope you will give Villaggio another try.
The food was outstanding & waitstaff very attentive. We sat outside on the back patio which was just lovely. Excellent dining experience, we'll be back!
Thanks so very much! We are delighted you enjoyed dining at Villaggio and look forward to your return!
Consistently delicious, excellent wine selections, exceptional service, and charming atmosphere. Favorite restaurant!
Thank you! We greatly appreciate your review and we look forward to your return!
We had just a wonderful dinner at Villaggio. The service was EXCELLANT, the staff could not have been more friendly or more competent. Our dinners were outstanding especially the Tiramisu. And of course, the Village of Pine Hurst is such a nice place to walk around after such a wonderful dinner.
Thank you so very much for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to your return!
So wonderful we booked this coming Friday night as well
Thank you very much for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you this Friday!
Atmosphere, service and food quality were all impeccable! Highly recommend this restaurant for a fine dining experience.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful review! We are delighted you enjoyed Villaggio and we look forward to serving you again soon!
The food was excellent. I even made a request to modify a dish on the menu and the chef did it! Our server was wonderful and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely return!
We are very thankful for your wonderful review and are so delighted you enjoyed Villaggio! We hope to serve you again soon!
The noise in my room was annoyingly loud; needs some sound absorption.
The entree was outstanding.
For my taste, the Caesar Salad was chopped too small making it difficult to pick up and for me, it was too light on dressing. But, the croutons were fabulous. I am an admitted Caesar Salad snob so I may be in the minority.
Sorry if it was noisy that night! Often times it is quiet in the restaurant but every now and then we get an animated group! We are so glad you enjoyed your entrees and we will discuss the Caesar salad to find out why it was cut smaller than usual. I don't understand though why you would only rate the restaurant a 3 for value. Given you had two salads, two entrees, and two cocktails, your check was quite reasonable for a fine dining restaurant. We hope you will give Villaggio another try!
My wife and I were staying at the Pinehurst resort and booked a reservation at the Villagio for dinner. We hoped for a nice dinner experience and were pleasantly surprised with one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. Thanks to our server Kelly who took such good care of us, and to the Chef for the excellent meals prepared for us. We highly recommend the Villagio Ristorante for an outstanding dining experience.
Thank you so very much for your review! We are delighted you enjoyed Villaggio and hope to serve you again on your next visit!
