Food and atmosphere was nice but our waiter seemed to be preoccupied with his larger table rather with the 3 of us. It was neat to have the kids make their own pizzas at the bar! Always good to have a meal where everyone can truly enjoy their choices!

Our dinners were delicious. The atmosphere was lovely and we were seated by a window where we could watch the light show. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. One dinner had to be sent back multiple times to be cooked to the correct temperature and management came over and apologized. The other two meals were cooked perfectly. We love this restaurant and return often.

Overall it was fine not a place on my list that I have to go to when I’m in town. The server was not very helpful when asking what he recommended, his answer was “what does your tastebuds feel like” he was sarcastic. The food and the atmosphere was good.

Horrible service- our waiter did not visit our table until we had been there for 15 min. He took forever to bring us drinks- take our order- bring us more drinks- we really didn’t see him much- the managers started to help him- after being there for over an hour and a half - I had to say something to the manager. One of them was very apologetic the other one not so much- they tried to blame it on a wedding party. Who knows?????? They did charge us half price on the food. But the waiter really didn’t seem to care about anything.
On the flip side the food was delicious! We all loved everything we had.
I would go back but only for carry out!

Our waiter was absolutely horrible. We had a party of 12 and he couldn’t keep our glasses filled. He didn’t fill water glasses unless we asked and didn’t ask us ever if we wanted any more drinks (soda or wine) He was too busy trying to rush us out. When we asked about dessert, he told us “I wouldn’t” and when I asked why (thinking they had a bad dessert) he said bc he doesn’t eat dessert, and never gave us a menu to see what they had. Instead he ran and got our tab and rushed us out so he could obviously go home. At one point, they even turned some lights off when there were clearly many people still in the restaurant. Horrible!

Thought we would give Villagio's a try after a long time away from it. We had a party of 5 for my birthday. Olga was very attentive and was listening while we discussed the menu and made excellent recommendations. I don't like where the restaurant is located. The restaurant is very classy but the scene outside the windows feels like an amusement park. However, I will definitely go back.

James our waiter was very knowledgeable of menu items and did not rush us. We were able to really enjoy our meal. Food was very tasty. Loved the calamari. We had catch of the day and seafood pasta, very good. Great desert of Florida orange cake. Will definitely go back next time we are in town.

We have been to Villaggio several times during snowbird & spring break times of the year. We always enjoy it & look forward to going back. Our primary home is in Wisconsin so we can't get there very often, but when we do, we always enjoy Villaggio very much.

We were vacationing at the beach and decided to try something neither of us had been to. Overall I would say it was worth the visit. We found the croutons and the cheese on our Ceasar salads to both be a bit stale but the lettuce was crisp and the dressing had a good flavor. For the main entrees my husband loved his salmon and my filet was full of flavor but a bit under cooked. I love my meat rare so I was ok with that but it was a cold very red center, not a cool red center with a noticeable sear ring as it should have been. So if you sort of like your steak rare I would strongly suggest going with a medium rare cook. The gnocchi that accompanied it was pepper overload and gummy so I did not waste filling up on it. The cheesecake we got to take home was the show winner by far though.

Our server, Olga, was excellent. All that Vellagio provided was enjoyable.. We arrived in the restaurant totally distracted by the noisy and too bright audio going on outside the restaurant in the Wharf Commons. Noise level was disturbing, search light flashing was upsetting. Olga charmed us into relaxing and enjoying the restaurant.

Celebrated our 33rd anniversary. Absolutely loved the food and service! The award winning shrimp dish was amazing ending with delicious and light 5 layer orange cake. A can’t miss combo. Prefer a slightly quieter environment as tough talking over a table but we will definitely be back. Thank you!

Every course from the bread and olive tapenade to caprese salad to steak to creme brûlée dessert was fabulous. Server Roy took great care of us and was very knowledgeable and fun. Was exactly the nicer food we were ready for after days of oysters and bar food.

Waiter was not attentative. Acknowledged us and was gone for quite a long period. I don't know if he had too many tables or what. Restaurant was noisy. We had a party of 7 and they cramed us in a corner where waiters and other diners had to squeeze behind us to go to the restrooms. Food was very good. Salmon special was excellent as were the steaks.

We'd been to Villaggio Grille at the Wharf many times and have always enjoyed good food and service, but this visit was exceptionally fine. We were celebrating a birthday, and the guest of honor was looking forward to her favorite baked oysters appetizer. She was very disappointed it wasn't on the menu; but our waiter, James, asked the kitchen to prepare it for her anyway! Kudos to James and the chef!! And after dinner, which was predictably very good, James brought the birthday girl a decadently delicious slice of flourless chocolate cake, complete with a candle.

I must preface my review by saying this was on an extremely busy Friday night. All 4 of us enjoyed our dinner, but due to the crowd it took our server a while to wait on us, take our order, serve the food and finally bring the check. This is probably our 12th or more time to dine at Villagio, but the first since they expanded their footprint. I’m not sure whether the waitstaff had too many tables or were simply short of staff. Our waiter was very friendly & courteous. My daughter who has worked as an event planner wasn’t pleased with the service and she has handled events with hundreds of guests.
