    This is John’s lady friend responding! Though I did attend a company Christmas party many years ago, I had wanted to have dinner @ Il Villaggio for my birthday in April. However since my birthday was a Sunday, it was a bit disappointing that the venue does not serve dinner on Sundays! So I finally had the chance to dine there Wed., 8/3/22. I thoroughly loved the ambience as soon as I walked in! The dinner choices are nicely varied, & my choice…Veal Florentine was just delicious! Oh, the mussels in white sauce, (which I never had) were very good & I was surprised at how many were in the dish! Though I don’t expect to return there soon, hopefully John will take me there again someday!

    Went with my family before a concert at Metlife Stadium. Great food, fantastic wait staff. If had to find any fault, I like my martini very cold; I had to add a couple of ice cubes.

    The waiter can’t be any ruder. Our wait took the orders and insisted we ordered a third dish of an app. I was paying attention “it never happen, the problem is he was accusing us for his error to the point I almost had to see a manager the the food came out sporadically and my pasta was a solid cold clump. The waiters also gave us attitude because we were not a drinking crowd they filled our glasses if we took a sip of pellagrino. I have been here several times and they have all been bad experiences, unfortunately my guest likes a certain dish there.

    The food was delicious, there were so many wine options, and the service was great! Buffalo mozzarella app was really good, shared two different pasta dishes which were delicious. And the tiramisu was amazing—light but so flavorful! And the ambience was perfect, the music was nice, enjoyable not too loud, perfect for a date.

    This is a truly modern old school Italian restaurant. We were not rushed at all, had plenty of time to look over the wine menu before getting our food menus. We were told by memory the large list of specials for the evening. The pasta, fish, and gravy was so fresh and delicious. The wait staff was friendly and with return customers like family. This is a place to get dressed up for and enjoy a fantastic meal. My wife and I came here almost 20 years ago and had been wanting to come back but just got to busy to. This time we were having OUR Easter dinner without family for the first time ever and found a new family to eat with, the amazing staff of Il Villaggio.
