Italian

Villaggio�s Ristorante is family owned and serves many of the traditional Italian favorites that its patrons have grown up enjoying. For a special treat, order up a plate of steamed mussels with a special blend of herbs and garlic to add flavor. Open for more than 12 years, Villaggio�s Ristorante has an executive chef on site who has created a diverse and eclectic menu.

When you next have the hankering for authentic Italian food, start with the calamari fritti. From there, Villaggio�s Ristorante offers a range of salads, and then you can have a main course like the fettuccini alfredo. Wash it all down with a glass of wine from the extensive list of vintages on offer.

Everything was great, but overall volume from music and singers was way too loud for enjoying dinner and having any conversation.

Atmosphere was great, service awesome as usual. A little loud due to live music but Tony Ocean was good.

We have always loved going to Villaggio. But had a very rushed feeling this time. It was a Sunday night with a 7:30 reservation . We had a party of 7., and they ran out of bread. And then we asked for extra sauce on one pasta and they said they were out.
Not the experiences we have ever had there before.

Had a wonderful time with friends at Villaggio’s listening to Diva Montell & Jeorge Holmes perform a Christmas Opera. We had an delicious 5 course meal. The service was exceptional as always by Edgar and Filiberto and the staff.

No fault of the restaurant, the customers who had our table before us took awhile. Forty minutes after the reservation, we had our table. They did offer bread, etc. to us while we waited at the bar. Great service. Great food.

Too loud. Server brought wrong dish, added wrong dish to bill and forgot salad too. We will inly go back in summer if we do, and eat outside requesting a different server.

We have never been disappointed by our meal or the very attentive staff. We brought friends tonight and they were excited to discover our local italian gem. We are planning on coming back next weekend.

The food was decent, however the service left something to be desired. We ordered 2 glasses of wine, one appetizer, and 2 entrees, and were there for over 2 1/2 hrs! We got our drinks fairly promptly, but waited 1/2 hr for our appetizer, then another 1/2 hr for our soup and salad. After finishing those, it was again another 1/2 hr wait for our 2 entrees— a pasta dish and a pork dish, and I had to ask the waiter for those! 3 other tables near us had the same problem. I asked the manager if there was a kitchen problem or a server problem. He said he would check. A little while later he brought us a comped dessert, but no explanation. All that, plus how ridiculously loud it is there(including the entertainer who sings way to loudly for a small room) equals a one and done dining experience.

It was a special occasion (Birthday), was very disappointed when nothing was mentioned. We dine at least 3 times per month and this was the first time that I server was not around to refill our drinks. We asked 3 times for refill on our bread and never received it. We brought 2 very important people in our lives from out of town. Our food took a while and once we received it, food was just warm. Our server was busy with other tables and we couldn’t get his attention. This is the first time we ever walked out disappointed.

At the beginning everything was good until we had our wine glasses empty for a long time and I had to ask someone to pour some more because no one asked if we’ll like some more we didn’t got offered desert the waiter did not came back until I asked for the check and I really hope it wasn’t because we are Latinos cuz he kept going to every table around asking how was everything if the need anything else but never at our table

Had a great dinner out with family here. Walked into an unfamiliar restaurant that had great reviews online and they really delivered. Grilled calamari appetizer was great. The entrees were great too. Awesome tortellini, ravioli, & gnocchi.

The live music was an added bonus! I initially thought it would be too loud to enjoy dinner but wow they singers were busting out 70s hits that really sunk deep and made for a lively evening.

Waitress didn’t bring everyone soup. My meal wasn’t correct so she put potatoes and spinach in a small plate that was already on the table for bread than much later returned with the correct order. One person meal was supposed to be on risotto it looked like rice soupy not creamy like risotto should be. That person couldn’t eat it. So they gave us 2 free deserts. Overall experience poor

Food is great atmosphere is old school Italian. They had nice lady singing all the old tunes and some new ones. Made for a great date night. The food always lives up to expectation except every now and then they may have an off night on the calamari.

Amazing bread, pizza bread, sun dried tomatoes, parmesan cheese & kalamata olives they bring to each table before you order. Everything was very fresh and delicious! The lamb chops were a special that night, so I ordered them. There were 5 and they were fantastic! I couldn't eat them all. They gave us lemon sherbet to clean the pallette before the main entree. It was very unexpected and was like going to a 5 star restaurant. Will bring more family & friends there soon.
