The spaghetti alla vignole was excellent - fresh, whole clams in their shells with perfectly sauced al dente pasta. Delicious, tender veal. Great calamari. Excellent service. Hadn’t been there for years, but will start going more frequently!

I got the lobster ravioli. Flavor is excellent but you get 3 ravioli and for the price not a good value I was still a bit hungry. I would recommend the restaurant consider serving at least 4 ravioli.

Food was fantastic - service was good, be it a little slow, but it was just the two of us with no kids, so not all that unwelcome.

Lovely setting in the restaurant. Nice bar, although small.

Food was delicious, perfectly prepared. I started with the tasty avgolemonosoup, then had the pork shank (a special), she had the delicious shrimp scampi.

Great dessert selection. Brought lemon cake home.

Server allowed us a peasantry unrushed dinner, but we didn’t feel neglected at all.

A real winner of a Hooksett place to dine comfortably, with a touch of elegance.

Villagio hasn’t lost a beat despite Covid. Excellent service. Ample portions. But they ran out of a special at an early hour.

Excellent food as usual and they moved us to a quieter area as we requested since there were two large groups near us originally. It wasn’t necessary as the groups were moderately loud at worst. We love Villagio—it’s our favorite go-to restaurant!

The worse experience ever, absolutely horrible. I have been going to this location since 2018 after moving from Chicago.. We always get the same server which was lovely and liked her. I dine there with my business partners as well in large groups because the food is good.

Today, it was a total disaster,
1- we waited for 15 mins without being acknowledged.. finally someone sat us down.. our server was the worst server on earth, did not know the special of the day did not take our drink orders, we asked for the drink menu and she let it on the table, did not check and and us on anything she was clueless. My 6 year old son could have done better than her. Due to our horrible experience we asked to take our food home.. think about it we had to ask for the check.

Today, I swear I will never, ever go there again, I was thinking about taking my 7 employees there on Thursday and 8 on Friday... guess what NOT a Chance. I have more restaurants to chose from.. I work hard for my money if a business treat me horrible like you did I take my money somewhere else.
Never again

My family went to Villaggio for my daughter's birthday. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. The waitress helped to choose an excellent bottle of wine to compliment our meal. I would recommend this restaurant for a special event.

We have been to Villaggio many times before, always loved the entire experience & always recommend it! We made a reservation a week prior for four to celebrate our friends 25th wedding anniversary...I had called three days before asking permission if we could have a couple of special items placed on the table...I had dropped off prior: a center piece, candle for the table & balloons. We waited 25min for our reservation once we arrived on time. The table obviously not ready was then thrown together, no consideration to placement of the items when I had previously asked. The timing on the dinner was then off the rest of the evening, disappointing. Offered by the staff to bring fresh bread to the table- it came 40min later, half way through our meal. When we were ready to order or needed something, no staff nearby. The staff was polite, busy, appeared stressed through the evening, affecting the atmosphere & they did apologize...seriously it was a party of four to celebrate a 25th Wedding Anniversary! And it could've been GREAT. I realize for Villaggio a great problem to have, so busy and everyone wanting to come to their restaurant & the food is always excellent! I am glad for them. However, I will find it challenging to recommend in the future: Why bother to make a reservation? The staff was fine but did not rise to the very special occasion.

Me and my boyfriend went here for Valentine’s Day. Overall we were very happy. The service, ambiance and food were all good. The only thing we both weren’t impressed with was the bread and oil. The outside was crunchy which isn’t always bad but there wasn’t much actual soft bread inside to make up for it. I got the toasted almond amaretto tiramisu for dessert. Good thing I ordered it to go because I probably would have ordered another piece.

1st our dinner was great as usual but when I checked my credit card I have been charge a no show fee of $40 and when I called open table I was told I have to call the restaurant. Which I was told even thou we were seated at 4PM it showed we canceled our reservation at 4:45pm. Still waiting for a credit but will probably never use open table again not worth the aggravation
