This is the 2nd time I have visited Villaggio Ristorante. The ambiance and service is wonderful. The ala carte menu is pricey, but worth it. I would recommend it to anyone, especially for a special occasion.

Our meal was absolute perfection from beginning to end! I appreciated the COVID protocols that the restaurant is following, and it did not take away from the experience of the meal. I enjoyed the Villaggio salad and the Linguine frutti di mare with fresh pasta made that day - wonderfully delicious!! The service was excellent, as well. I cannot wait to go back!!

One of the best finds in Pinehurst in a long time. Really fine dining that rivals New York restaurants. Real Italian chefs preparing some of the finest good you will ever taste. Makes my mouth water just writing about it. Oh, and the wine choice is superb. It books up fast and well in advance. Don't wait. You won't be disappointed; you will be delighted.
Five stars across the board.

We have been to Villagio the last two weekends and the service has been very slow and actually got worse the second visit. Our waiter was not very attentive. We had to get his attention every time we wanted something. He never came by to ask.Wine list is very good but very expensive. Need to have a few more moderately priced wines. Before I recommend Villagio they will have to step up their game.

We are disappointed our servers did not provide a good experience during your visits and we are working hard to rectify this via good training, which is an ongoing process right now given the newness of the restaurant. Most of the time, our servers deliver excellent service. Again, we are very sorry this happened to you. We hope you will try Villaggio again and if you do, be sure to speak with our general manager, Persefoni, so she can ensure a good experience for you. Julie & Ron Milton

I was looking for someplace special to celebrate getting away. When I saw the Villaggio website I knew this was what I was looking for. I was not disappointed. We were greeted with smiles and upon being seated John, our server, came right over and introduced himself. He was extremely attentive all night, warm and friendly. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert. During our visit the owner, Ron, came to the table. He checked to see how we were enjoying everything and made some stellar recommendations. A must have is the Tiramisu which is made in house. Best I ever had. On this night they offered a prime rib. It was cooked perfect and very delicious. The chef is very passionate about his food, you could tell by the quality of the dishes we had. If you like risotto then you should try the Villaggio.
The Villaggio was an elegant, friendly and a very delicious dining experience. They are following all Covid 19 guidelines including distancing and masks. When in Pinehurst don't miss it. You will be very happy that you dined there.

The Osso Buco was outstanding, as was the grilled calamari and lasagna. The caprese was delicious.
To top it off was a simple but perfect desert, farm fresh peaches soaked in Moscato and vanilla gelato.
The service was excellent, very caring in these difficult

Villaggio offers an exquisite dining experience! Every dish stands on it's own offering flavors that can be tasted individually and yet harmonize to create a unique experience in your mouth! We literally ate three appetizers, two entrees and two desserts... and every taste was amazing. In addition to a remarkable chef offering fantastic eats, the service here is beyond reproach. Excited to have this restaurant in frequenting distance of us, but would certainly travel to get to it if it were further!

Our waitress, Brittany, was fabulous ... friendly, helpful with wine and food selections, and simply a delight. The food ... from the wine to the appetizer to the main entree and vegetables to the dessert ... were all flavorful, prepared delightfully, and with attention to presentation. It was a nice touch to have the evening manager and the chef stop by our table to inquire if we were pleased, which we were! We were there to celebrate a major anniversary, and the evening could not have been better. We will definitely be back ... and will be recommending the restaurant to our friends. A nice addition to the Pinehurst village!
