Wonderful as always! Great variety and happy with specials.. consistently satisfied with my meal choices and always leave happy! Will be sad when they close to renovate
My wife and I decided to go on the last night they would be open before beginning a renovation. As always, we were not disappointed. I had the Veal formaggio which was new to me but excellent. My wife had a seafood pasta and the bruschetta, both were very good. Tim, our waiter, has served us before and is always very pleasant, knowledgeable and a great server. We will be interested to see the new restaurant when it reopens.
Wonderful as usual! Hope the new restaurant lives up to Caio's quality, and keeps the fabulous lasagna on the menu...we'll be there for the new incarnation...Best of Luck!
It was very good but pricy.
Overall experience was great! They'll continue to get my business and referrals!!!
Wow. We have been to Ciao Villagio twice now and both time were AMAZING. The specials and everything we have tried on the menu have been exquisite. The drinks, crafted perfectly and the wait staff knowledgeable and personable without being overbearing. We WILL be back.
Ciao Villago was quite esquisite. We went for my dad's birthday in a Friday night. It was pretty low key around 7:30, which is a nice change up for a Friday night. The food was phenomenal, the drink selection had a good variety. The only discouraging review I have about this restaurant was 1) parking (super tight and super narrow roads) and 2) the waiter was a serious up-seller. We are Italian and so we have a pretty good idea of what food is what but he felt inclined to try to explain how the meal options with meat selections as well as the different types of alcoholic drinks "we're so much more enjoyable" (i.e. Salmon, filet). Not to mention I just didn't feel like have a martini (or any alcoholic drink) that evening and the bartender "accidentally made two mango martinis". Please. I just want to order some good Italian food and celebrate my dad's birthday-not buy a car. Which by the way they don't do anything special for birthdays. Just try to get to you to buy dessert "so you can celebrate it!". There are several downtown Italian restaurants that compliment a small gelato dish on your birthday. But being new to town we wanted to try Villago out. Oh well. Food was still wonderful; the server was just irritating with his upselling.
Both had very good meals and a little pricey, but it's a "fine dining experience" and also - it's Zionsville, where no one really goes out to eat very often, so they have to make enough to stay open on the few customers that venture by... Truly amazing that a nice restaurant has two tables at 8:45pm on a Saturday night - this is when we're just heading out, and they were rolling up the sidewalks already. The post-meal coffee was pretty nasty (but again - they probably hadn't had anyone ask for coffee in several hours, so it was quite stale by the time we finished our meal and were thinking about a nice coffee). Our waiter, Andrew was very personable and nice, and fairly attentive.
The filet steaks were good as reported by others in my party. My shrimp were not very well prepared (somewhat tough) in the "special" meal of the evening which was pasta/shrimp/scallops/sun dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Bread was excellent. Appetizers excellent (calamari and one other resembling a crab cake - forgot the name).
Amazing spot for a great dinner. It was date night and we went around 7:30. The service was on point! Our waitress, Corrine, made sure we had a great experience. Would definitely go back.
