Il Villaggio Ratings and Reviews
To start with, the ambiance at Il Villaggio was wonderful - subdued and quiet without being uncomfortably quiet. We were seated immediately and our server came quickly. She seemed knowledgeable when listing the day's specials - which were quite a few - without sounding robotic. The meal was delicious. I very much recommend this restaurant!
On a recent Saturday night, four of us had dinner at Il Villaggio. It was crowded, festive, and the service was attentive. We enjoyed the appetizers, salads and desserts. The pasta dishes were tasty. One of our party ordered the Dover sole, and, much to her disappointment, the table-side filleted Dover sole tasted and smelled extremely fishy. The sauce served with it was fine, but the fish itself was the worst she has ever had. We agreed about the sole's unpleasant fishiness. She should have said something, but the restaurant was busy, and she kept quiet. But at a price of $37.00, she shouldn't have had to question the quality and freshness of the fish. She took most of it home and put it in the garbage disposal.
This was a lovely place. The service was outstanding from the moment we were greeted at the door. The atmosphere was charming. We sat outside. Felt like I was in a little restaurant in Tuscany with the grape leaves growing on the trellises. The food was good I had the scallops and shrimp over pasta. The pasta was cooked all dente. I forgot to bring wine. I wish they told me when I mad my reservation. They do have some California wines to purchase and they were very accommodating, just not great wines. Just remember to BYOB! Otherwise a perfect evening.
At first, seemed pretentious but I warmed up to the staff. They were friendly. I ordered gnocchi with crab blush/vodka sauce. When I initially tasted it, I was put off by how light and soft the gnocchi were, almost seemed mushy. I'm used to what my mom made, a more dense gnocchi and rolled. But after the first bite, I really enjoyed the meal. My partner ordered scallops over risotto. The scallops were cooked perfectly! They had a grilled surface but were by no means over cooked. The only issue I had was there were only three scallops. The risotto was also very good. The place is a bit ritzy. I felt a little under dressed wearing shorts and a polo shirt with sneakers. Would like to go again. Prices were ala cart. Our bill came to about $85 for the two of us.
We had clans, oysters, and grilled calamari for appetizers. Delicious. We all enjoyed the beet salad with ricotta cheese. For entrees we had the ravioli special with ricotta and the scallops/shrimp dinner. For dessert we had tiramisu, cannoli and gelato. Everything was so delicious. Our friends were very impressed with the food and service. This is a neighborhood gem.
We were sat at a very noisy table. I asked for a quieter setting as one of my guests has hearing issues. Another table was already set but we couldn't have it for some reason. They did not even offer to turn it down. Our waitress was too busy to get us situated with my guest's request for an iced tea and for the ice and wine bucket we requested. All said, we were disappointed.
