Il Villaggio Ratings and Reviews
The people at the front messed up our reservation, which had us waiting an extra 45 minutes while customers just showing up were being seated. When we finally asked and figured out they messed up, they didn't even apologize. They just said "oh we're busy it happens." You could say we didn't appreciate that. Overall food was decent, but the people are uptight and wack.
What an awesome Valentines dinner experience. On what is known as one of the busiest nights for restaurants, they made us fell welcome, not rushed, relaxed and comfortable. The setting was warm and charming (on a very cold windy night). The food was fantastic. The best and most tender grilled calamari we ever had. The chocolate Raviolis (homemade pasta stuffed with figs) was voted a favorite by all. Entrees (veal w/ crabmeat, Filet and short ribs over palenta) were awesome too. Only thing better (or should I say equal), was the staff. They have the most friendly, welcoming and efficient employees. True professionals. All of this greatness trickles down from the top. The owners did everything possible to make our dining experience perfect and it worked. Going back soon!!
Really great experience. Ambience in the Fountain room is European Chic. The wait staff attentive and the Chocolate Ravioli stuffed with fig and gorgonzola was superb to say the least. A little pricey for BYOB but worth it, will be returning once the patio available.
This was the first restaurant my wife and I dined at when we moved to Cherry Hill. We were not dressed appropriately, showed up on a Saturday night around 8:30. They were full with reservations, but we explained "we just moved to the area and this would be the first restaurant we would be eating at." The host asked us when we moved town, which we replied 10 minutes ago, when we dropped out luggage off at the temporary housing we had. She spoke to the manager and he welcomed us to Cherry Hill. Then, just like the scene from Goodfellas, they brought out a table for 2, set it up and sat us down as if we were VIPs. The dinner was amazing, we have been back multiple times in the last year, and have never been disappointed in the food or service. And if you ask my wife she would tell you I am very picky from working years in the restaurant business. Try it, and love it!
The "valentine" 4 course menu was a very good value and offered a very nice variety of delicious and creative fare. I was tentative to eat out on such a busy holiday, but was pleasantly surprised at the attention and unhurried vibe that Stefan, our waiter provided. The large open room where we were seated was a bit airy and acoustically unpleasant, but our small intimate table was suitable and we were able to enjoy a very special "date night" with excellent food. The grilled octopus appetiser was perfect and the Sea bass was delightful! Would definitely return on another occasion. 5 stars!!
The service is great from the time you walk in the door when you are greeted by the hostess until you walk out the door you are waited on with a very attentive staff. The food is unbelievably good. This is a restaurant that will be on my have to go back list.
We have dined at this location before and had very good experiences. On Saturday night I went to dinner with my wife and the President of my company. We were promptly seated and the experience went down hill from there. We were not given menus and had to ask for them. It took a while for the server to take our order and well over an hour before the meal was served. The fillet was cold and stringy. My wife did not enjoy her dinner and there was never a reason given or an apology for the long wait time for the meal. I was extremely embarrassed taking my president to this location. We all dine out often and we all agreed that the service was the worst we have seen in years. I will not be returning to this establishment.
Disappointed. My meal of Fruita de Mare contained micro canned shrimp. Another meal at our table had undercooked chicken and was returned. My husband was not told told they were out of his "special" until the other 5 meals were served. Overall,
a below average experience and I will not return.
This was my second visit to this restaurant and both times we had fantastic service. The servers have great knowledge of the menu, everyone from the parking valet to our server was outstanding and friendly.
Food is delicious, menu has a great variety without being overwhelming.
This was my first time at this restaurant, and I have mixed feelings. The decor/ambiance was really nice. We had small kids with us, which I wouldn't do again. It's not kid friendly - no kids menu, coloring books etc. The waitress did her job but wasn't overly friendly. They had a nice selection on the menu, as well as a decent amount of specials, however, they wouldn't make any changes from what was being offered (for example do veal parm instead of chicken parm). The food wasn't amazing but good for the price. We didn't leave raving about it, but we'll definitely try it again.
We arrived at our reservation time and were seated almost immediately. Our waiter was very thorough telling us about specials. And he was very attentive and not overbearing during our meal. We were four people and everyone loved their appy's and main courses as well. We are definitely coming back another time.
What a wonderful restaurant! The service, ambiance and food are all amazing. We have been here numerous times because it is one of those places that is consistent. Nothing worse than trying someplace new and it's horrible. Well not here!!! You will be happy every single time.
Place is cute. Dining room has a fireplace.
Food was mediocre for what appeared to be a fancy Italian restaurant. Taste was on level of Olive Garden. Bread was worse than I've had at diners. Meals don't come with a salad or anything before hand.
Service was good and bad. Waitress was fine, food came out in reasonable time. The second I lifted my last bite off the plate - a guy swooped it to take my plate and took the mediocre bread without asking if we were done with it. It seemed like they were rushing to get rid of us.
With as many Italian places around - I'd say pass on this one
Food was very good on a Saturday night. Restaurant was very noisy and the tables are crammed together. Not my type of ambiance. Service was very attentive and easy to attract as needed. I would try again because of the quality food and maybe change my dining time
