The hostess and our waitress, Nikki, were super friendly and pleasant, We had just moved into the area and they definitely made us feel welcome. This is a "hidden gem" and was our first, of many visits!

Outstanding food and our server, Dmitri, was excellent. His recommendations were critical to our enjoyable experience and delicious meal. The food is most certainly worth the wait. We will certainly be returning and will be recommending Villaggio to friends and family going so far as to purchase gift cards as Christmas presents this year.

We chose the two person high top tables in the bar area. There happened to be two couples at the bar who were a bit loud - but the great service and food well made up for the noise. Probably will choose a different type of table next time. Food and service was excellent. Highly recommend the chicken parm - there was enough there for two meals, so some came home with us. The fried mozzarella was to die for.

I requested a quiet table. The top level had chairs that were literally their butts backed up in our faces. There were curtains there which they said needed to remain open. Never acknowledged my husband’s birthday.. I mentioned it on open table and to waitress. She told us specials AFTER we ordered, and it would’ve been different choices we would have made. Ordered a Caesar salad (an upgraded price) that was the same salad as my husband’s garden salad with Caesar dressing in the side (not as described in the menu with Romaine and shaved Parmesan). Waitress insisted that I got the correct salad. (?). Maybe may have been better with a different server? Not rushing back.

Despite the sluggish service, the food was wonderful, as always. I had the Veal Osso Buco over a Parmesan Risotto. It was tender and delicious. My wife had the Gnocchi, which is one of her favorites. Our other guest had the Eggplant Parmesan and thoroughly enjoyed the dish. We always have a good time at this restaurant because the food is very consistent and well prepared.

Service this visit was not the best, with the server disappearing for long periods of time during service. The server was also a little slow with a couple of requests and forgot one thing entirely.

The meal was going well until a large and very loud group was seated at the next table and proceeded to overwhelm the room. We were happy to finish our meal and get out. Despite the problems, this is a wonderful place to eat.

Once you step into the restaurant, you feel transported. The candles flickered on the glasses awaiting you at the beautifully set table. The well-dressed staff was prepared for us and cheerfully assisted in whatever role they played. The decor was very pleasant and even the ladies room faucets made me think "Italy" (even though I've never been there!). A perfect night out and we look forward to going again!!

Great service…very loud…acoustics were somewhat to be desired. I’m a big eater and could have used bigger portions. Ordered filet mignon…it was a bit over cooked, but overall not bad.

Great food everyone loved their dishes though the bread before the meal should be changed, so bland and tough bottom. The server Dimitri was not great. I had to ask to have our drink orders taken. He forgot my sister’s drink and I went to the bar myself to get a drink as the waiter was MIA for a while. Not a personable waiter and he knew it was my birthday. Just slid a cannoli in front of me at the end of the night without saying much of anything I can recall.

Food was superb as always, reservation online went perfectly and when we arrived at our table is ready we did not have to wait at all. Our waitress was very knowledgeable pleasant and overall exceptional.

The air conditioning was on and we were freezing I was very cold in the restaurant because I think it had been hot all week and we had a drop in temperature and they didn’t adjust for that. They were short staffed which delayed some drinks coffee etc. from arriving as quick as they usually do and one of our appetizers were cold but we ate it anyway because we were starving and the food was still good.

I love this restaurant it’s my go to when guests are out of town and they need a place to eat and I go here often.

We have fallen in love with this place. The food is FANTASTIC and the service is attentive. The table was ours for the evening so we could get caught up with our friends. Even our friends said they hadn’t been to this restaurant before but would definitely come back. My only suggestion to the owners would be that it’s time to get either new chairs or repad the current ones, I left with a sore butt!

First time at this restaurant. Wondering why we didn't know about this sooner. One of the best dinners we have ever had. Hard to chose what to order everything looked so good. I must say we had the garden salad to start, it was so fresh and beautifully arranged in the most unique serving bowl. A little on the pricey side great for special occasions. Dining room was lovely, very comfortable white tablecloths & candlelight. Service was excellent without being "stuffy".

This is a hidden gem! I’ve driven past it for years never thinking twice about going in until a friend suggested it. We made a reservation and was actually sat earlier than the reservation. The server was great! The drinks were absolutely outstanding and I will be dreaming about the white chocolate raspberry truffle martini the rest of my life. The food came out quick and was cooked to perfection . It’s hard finding a good marina sauce at restaurants and theirs was to die for! I finished the dinner off with the double chocolate cake which is what dreams were made of. The cake was super moist and not overly sweet. This restaurant is now my favorite restaurant!
