Il Villaggio Ratings and Reviews

Returned to Il Villaggio and was not disappointed to again enjoy quality food and excellent service! Dover Sole and Bronzino fish were deboned tableside...served with light sauce and delectable vegetables which included zucchini, carrots and artichoke. Appetizers of fresh blue point oysters and gnocchi with porcini cream sauce were superb. I would recommend this restaurant for a delicious and memorable dining experience whether with family, friends or a date with someone special! It is a BYOB restaurant which is great for connoisseurs who prefer to bring their own wines. Ordered the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert and found it to be more like a mound of mousse rather than a cheesecake.

Our reservation was for 6:30pm on Saturday night. We were seated immediately in a beautiful setting. Servers were very knowledgeable and always present. Appetizers and food were traditional Italian with some American entrees added for a broad audience. Food preparation and presentation was wonderful. The sauces on the entrees were excellent! Desserts were also beautiful and tasty! Very nice atmosphere, excellent food, excellent service, super nice dinner experience.

Went here for our 10 year Anniversary. Was very pleased with the service, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and was attentive to us. This is a byob but if you don't bring your own wine they do serve wine by the bottle and some by the half bottle. We choose a white sangria they brought out wine glasses with ice and berries and added fresh strawberries after pouring our first glass. Would definitely recommend trying this place.

The only thing better than the service is the food! Best BYOB in South Jersey! The owners and staff make a special effort to ensure that you are having an excellent experience. No need to order from the menu. The specials are always great. They do sell local wine also. Great experience start to finish.

The restaurant was not very crowded since it was lunch time. However, we were sat next to a party of about 8 women and the noise was very loud. We should have asked to me moved but didn't want to seem insensitive.

A very comfortable atmosphere with attentive servers, Well paced delivery of each selection of our meal left us relaxed and looking forward to the next . We have 4 courses,but 5 was available. We skipped the soup. I'll leave it for the next time. All courses of our meal was absolutely delicious and will be returning to dine again.

I was disappointed as I had made a reservation for 6 people for dinner. When I got there they gave us a table for 9. The table was so large that we could not talk to everyone at the table as it was so big. I asked for a smaller table for 6 but they said they did not have one.
It was very expensive and I probable would not go back. Food was good.

The food was great, especially loved the "fig" appetizer. Our table was next to the fireplace, it was not too hot--- and our server was excellent--very attentive, but not too attentive!
A very enjoyable evening over all!! Five ladies, and we could hear each other--noise level not too intrusive.

Two weeks ago my husband and I dined with friends at Il Villaggio and experienced not only creative and delicious meals but excellent service. This week we anxiously returned. Again, we found the food and service to be top notch. Thoughts of the Dover Sole prepared table side remained with me from first visit and again I ordered it as did my husband. The blending of seasonings and the artichokes and capers the fresh fish. Our server, Andy, provided professional service--very attentive without being intrusive. Homemade gnocchi in porcini sauce melted in the mouth. One of the specials was broiled sea bass, which our friend ordered and found to be exceptionally fresh and cooked to perfection. I was disappointed with the crab cake appetizer which I found bland. All in all, great meals were had by all four of us. Can't wait till our next memorable dinner at Il Villaggio!

This was our second of hopefully many visits to Il Villaggio. The food was outstanding, as well as the service. The menu had an extensive selection of Italian dishes, as well as a large selection of daily specials. We got to the restaurant about 1/2 hour early, but had no problem being seated.

We planned to meet friends for a leisurely dinner on Sunday at 4:00 p.m. We were seated first ,
within 5 minutes the other couple arrived, menus given and without a moment to say "HI" to each other, were immediately given the specials and then asked to make a decision. This all happened in about 6 minutes. It was so fast, I thought I was at a diner. They brought the dinner plates before collecting the appetizer dishes, they constantly interrupted our flowing conversation, and started to clear before one of the guests was completely finished. I could go into more detail but hesitate except to say that while we were relaxing with dessert and coffee, they started to reach over us and clear everything ! and it made me feel completely and totally unwelcome and stressed. The waiter even scoffed at brining another cup of coffee. The food was just o.k. but after spending a considerable amount of money AND time to get there I was very disappointed.

Great dining experience at this BYOB. The pork chop was fantastic. Cooked perfectly to medium rare and seasoned just right. The beet salad with goat cheese looked and tasted wonderful. The waiter was excellent and provided us with a lovely evening.

We celebrated a 53 year Wedding Anniversary at this fine establishment. Great service, wonderful food, an enjoyable atmosphere which was not stuffy. Andy, the owner made sure we enjoyed ourselves.
It's the small things that make a big difference.

Recently a friend whose judgement I trust told me of Il Villagio's delicious meals. Four of us went last week and were greatly impressed with the quality of food as well as the service. We ordered numerous appetizers - broccoli rabe and sausage, fresh oysters, mozzarella caprese, portobello mushrooms. The oysters were so good we ordered several more servings. Our entree selections included Veal Chop, Dover Sole, Bronzino Portofino and homemade Gnocchis with porcini cream sauce that melted in your mouth. All were outstanding choices. My Dover Sole was prepared table side by Arno who deboned the fish expertly. So impressed was the other gentleman who was with us that he planned to stop the next day with his golfing mates to savor again the luscious foods he had enjoyed that night. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who treasures good food!

The service and food are second to none. My wife and I felt like family. Everyone was respectful and they took some time to make us feel welcome. The waiter made excellent recommendations and was sensitive to our needs. This was the first time eating there but it won't be the last.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. This night chef prepared a pumkin raviol appetizer and a very clean, smoky, grilled calamari. We have been there several times , try something different every time and never let down. Better everything and does not break the bank. They will be in business for a very long time. Going back next week for the flavors of fall.

Appetizers were excellent- my friend from out of town had a beautiful & very tasty tomato dish & I had a grilled octupus. The main courses , red snapper & short ribs, both looked good at presentation & tasted even better. We were too full for dessert.
The server was very attentive & our water glasses were kept full (as were our wine glasses at this BYOB)
