Il Villaggio Ratings and Reviews

We love this place, and I'm almost hesitant to tell too many about how good it is, because I don't want it to become so popular that it gets hard to book a table. The food is exceptional. It really is. And it's very reasonable....and it's a BYO (though they do offer a limited but decent wine list). You could easily spend $40+ more for a party of 4 for a similar meal at another area restaurant...and we have. But Il Villagio is quickly becoming our go-to neighborhood restaurant.

The food and service was excellent and the prices were affordable. Way better than any of the chain restaurants in the area. The servers were polite and extremely professional. We are already talking about going back again soon. I was EXTREMELY impressed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was very good, but beware the arrabiata sauce. I ordered the branzino, but ended up eating the seafood arrabiata because it was too spicy for my husband. The service was slow. I recommend you not sit in the large room with the chandelier--too noisy, and the chairs, draped in white made me fear I was crashing someone's wedding reception. Ask to sit in the other, cozier room.

An error was made with one of the entrees which should have been bronzino fish. Therefore it took another 15 minutes to cook so 2 of us were done our meals and the 3rd person had to wait and then eat alone The server was attentive to the "regulars" but not to us. Although server did apologize it was still very disappointing

Il Villagio is a consistent treat. Changes in the menu keep dining here interesting. The waiters are knowledgeable and personable. The fact that it is BYOB really makes fine dining affordable. You cannot go wrong from appetizers through dessert.

Excellent dinner. Meals for five o'clock us were all very well prepared. Wait staff was very responsive. Also, even though they serve wine, they allow you to bring your own wine with no corkage fee. Had a great evening.

Outstanding food & atmosphere! My husband found them on open table for our anniversary dinner. We made our reservation only 30 minutes ahead of time & didn't have a problem. I found them to be very authentic for italian food. Great customer service! Definitely planning on going back.

In town to take my daughter out for b-day and did some homework on the Internet and took a chance.
We were presently surprised. Good food, fair price n nice waiter. Would go again n that's the best review u can give.

Found all of the food here to be outstanding. Homemade pasta was a delight. We especially liked the porcini dusted porkchop, beet salad and a veal dish with plum tomato sauce and olives. The service was fine for the most part, but a bit slow. It got even slower towards the end when we were waiting for our bill. The ambiance is lovely - this is a very pretty restaurant.

I found this place via Trip Advisor which has very good reviews. I went to visit my friends from Belgium and decided to go fancy dining. The service was outstanding. Our waiter Andy took great care of us and nothing was too much. The food was very fresh and perfectly seasoned. Definitely a place to visit again when I am back in town. Compliments to the chef!

This is a great all round restaurant. Food, service, decor (fireplace in winter, and beautiful patio in summer), and a great value. I drive 45 minutes sometimes to go here, it's that special. Family owned and managed and someone is always there making sure everything is running smoothly and that customers are happy. You can't beat this place, check it out.

After several years of trying, and stymied by continuing bad weather karma or deadly heat waves, we were finally able to sit outside for dinner on our most recent visit. That was where we began our thoroughly enjoyable numerous visits to Il Villagio, and enjoyed the hardscaped environment that was not there on that first visit. Food was great per always, service attentive, and we departed full and contented. We will definitely return many more times.

We arrived early for our reservation, but we were seated right away. Unfortunately, cold air was so strong that my hands were like ice. I mentioned this twice and they said they were adjusting the thermostat. This did not work. I then asked for another table and within 2 minutes we were moved to a more suitable table. Our food was very good and our server did not miss a beat. I would recommend II Villaggio strongly.

Excellent experience.!!! The wait staff was very attentive and quite knowledgable about the dishes and their preparation. Succulent specials in addition the the full menu. The facility is beautiful as well. I ordered a pasta special which had farfalle pasta and a tasty wine sauce with garlic and cherry tomatoes. It was unforgettable!! I'm going back soon.

We had reservations for 7pm and were seated immediately upon our arrival. Waiter was very good, attentive to any needs and patient with explanations of menu items. Food was good but not great in my opinion, but of course, that's subjective. Overall, very nice BYOB place, is great for a date night out

We were there for Restaurant Week - 3 courses for $35. The food was creative and nicely presented. The fresh pasta was perfect. Our server was attentive. Our only complaint was that the cream served with our coffee was not fresh and curdled slightly when placed in hot coffee. Our waiter apologized and quickly replaced the coffee, but we felt that at a restaurant of that quality this should not have happened (and certainly should not have appeared on our bill). Other than that mis-step our dinner was very good and we will be returning for another meal.

Warm, lovely atmosphere was backdrop for sterling, attentive service and delectable food. Food was incredibly fresh and inspired. My companion said the 'New Jersey Peach' was among the best appetizers he ever enjoyed.

After having a dozen oysters my wife had the Chicken Milanese and it was super moist and cooked perfect. I tried the Chicken Parm and it also was outstanding. Both meals were a lot of food for the money so we took some home. This is a consistently great restaurant with some of the best italian food in south jersey. I would highly recommend it.

What absolutely stood out the most was out server Stephen. He was absolutely amazing. He is what a server should be, He is the entire package when it coming to dining out. It's hard to find that level of service anymore. The food and table we had was also very good. Over all a great experience. We'll be back!

For the dinner entree prices, most of us felt our meals were just average. Some were light on the amount of seafood, and also lacked side dishes. The bread was plain although the ricotta/red pepper spread was tasty. On the plus side, the waiter was quite good.

Food here is excellent: stuffed tortolini and all appetizers we tried are wonderful. Exceptional taste and wonderfully fresh. We were not disappointed and decided we would be back soon. However, when crowded it can be noisy. This latest visit it was very loud-I know the restaurant cannot control this- and our waiter was very slow. He was one of those waiters who disappears. Waiting for the check and trying to find him to get the check were somewhat annoying. But don't let that stop you from trying this wonderful restaurant at least once.
