Il Villaggio Ratings and Reviews
Our party of five all enjoyed our meals and we liked being seated at a round table so we could all participate in conversation. The starters soup and salad were great. The main courses were all excellent. The two servers worked well together and were efficient and courteous.
We dined at the restaurant in celebration of our daughter's graduation from Bishop Eustace Prep. It was a week night, and the restaurant was not packed. It was a beautiful evening spent with our family, some excellent entrees and an excellent server Olga. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and will be back again and again!
1st time here and can't believe we haven't tried this place before this visit. My Mom and I already made plans to return and it'll be my next date night with my husband. Loved every bite of our meal. Loved the service- friendly, warm, attentive and knowledgeable. Excellent choice to celebrate my bday with my Mom. Thanks Open Table for having this place on your list bc I wouldn't have known about it.
Il Villaggio was a perfect choice for our family's Mother's Day brunch. The staff was very friendly and efficient and the food was outstanding. Our wine was poured with the same elegance as if we had not brought it ourselves. We have been several times for dinner and have always had a very positive experience. This time, we noticed the extensive area of outside seating (with umbrellas) and are looking forward to going back for dinner on the patio.
The food was great, but the service after we finished our meal was completely slow to the point where I had to ask for my own box before the waiter checked back up with us, and then another 10 minutes later, i had to ask to get the check as well.
This was our second visit to Il Villaggio. Both experiences were excellent. The waitstaff was very knowledgeable about their menu/kitchen/food prep and they aimed to please. All of our dishes were delicious. The presentation was top notch. Any modification or adjustment to the order was met with a "can do" attitude. The Branzino (grilled and filleted at table side) was superb.
Although it is a BYOB, they now have wine available for purchase from a small California winery. We opted for a Chardonnay which was very nice and reasonably priced (next time we will bring our own wine but it is a good option to have available).
P.S. They have outside seating in the back of the restaurant (weather permitting) which really is a nice touch.... makes you feel like you are in Tuscany ;-)
See you next time = arrivederci alla prossima!!
Another great meal. Service was excellent. Option to sit outside was perfect. Saturday night weather made it a very comfortable and welcoming spot. Owners are very engaging and focused on meeting and exceeding our every need. The Halibut was excellent and the gnocchi with crab-meat in a blush sauce was fantastic! The old reliable veal chop is second to none. Going back soon!!
It was our first there and we were not disappointed. It is BYOB, which I found out from another reviewer Thanks, and the food was top notch. We went Saturday night at 7pm so they were busy and even had free valet parking. Service was a tad on the long said but the wine and the great food made it an A+ night.
Service was tremendous. Pacing was wonderful. We were well taken care of. Food was just ok. Nothing amazing. Fresh catch was insanely overpriced for what it was, a small piece of Dover sole. Veal was not impressive. We won't return. Just too many tremendous Italian options around that do it better. It's not for foodies. If you want simple, predictable dishes it'll be right up your alley.
I've been to Il Villaggio a couple times on weekdays and enjoyed the restaurant a lot; the ambiance was good, the food was good, and the restaurant felt upscale. But the few times I've been there on the weekend - or even worse, a holiday - it's almost like a different restaurant; the ambiance changes and the quality of the food plummets. Maybe they have a different staff on the weekends or maybe the chef focuses on quantity rather than quality.
My last visit was the night before Easter at 5:30pm, long before any crowds. The valet parking on the weekends is understandable but annoying; if you want to opt out, you need to park a distance away, walking past smelly dumpsters. Once inside, the restaurant was pretty empty, though the tables seemed to be setup for a crowd later that night; since they have banquet facilities, they can get a few hundred people in the restaurant.
Despite the restaurant being almost empty, we were seated next to a very loud family, sipping Coors light cans and talking about questionable topics in front on my young daughter, wife, and mother-in-law. I couldn't hear the waitress, let alone my family members - and it became obvious we weren't going to enjoy ourselves with the distraction - so we asked to be moved. We were first told to wait it out since the other family would hopefully be leaving soon, but after a while the manager agreed to move us.
The new table was better, though otherwise we were still disappointed; the service of the waitress was below average, the bread seemed stale, the food was mediocre (though I've had several good meals on weekdays). We decided to skip dessert and go somewhere else instead. When I had a similarly bad experience on Christmas Eve, I was more understanding since the restaurant was quite full at that point, but considering we were early customers this evening, I didn't expect the kitchen to be cutting corners already.
Sorry, I'm done with Il Villaggio. There are much better options in the area.
This was the second time dining at the restaurant. I had dinner there on a Saturday evening and it was extremely busy. I enjoyed my dinner so much I took my daughter and son-in-law for dinner on a week night. We experimented with food and everything was absolutely delicious. It is a BYOB and I highly recommend it.
