The Little Village - Airline Ratings and Reviews

Our server was energetic and very friendly. Food was wonderful as always- but the bread with the olives and roasted garlic was the best. We order this every time we are here. I describe it as bad good! We brought friends from out of town and they raved about the bread and their dinner.

Food was delicious! I had people recommend this restaurant, but I'm always skeptical about local Italian. I was not disappointed! The bread appetizer is so delicious. I had the stuffed fish on green beans and it was incredible. Had no room for dessert unfortunately. Cocktails were good too. I will definitely go back.

The bread was petty much the only thing we had that turned out okay. I think that when you are paying $25-30 for just the main course, it shouldn't be burnt. And also if you ask for lump crab meat to go on your pasta dish then it should be there. Sorry but not impressed with that place.

The food and service were excellent. There was a problem, however, at the front door. We had reserved a table for two to celebrate my birthday, which happens to fall on New Years Eve. We left the house early because it was stormy, but the reception was icy. We were told where our table was and could see it from the door, but could not sit down because "the kitchen doesn't open until 4." Instead, we had to stand in a corner for 10 minutes. It was the first time I was ever punished for arriving early. It appeared the hostess resented being scheduled to work on New Years Eve, and was determined to take it out on someone. I'm sure she could tell we had a good time despite her efforts. Maybe she will be off next New Years Eve and will have a great time somewhere else.

We wanted to do something special while our family was all together for the holidays. Had a great time and excellent meal. Waiter was very attentive, Manager stopped by to chat. Steaks and daily specials were very good. And, of course, the bread!! Overall a great time. One of our favorite places for any occasion.

For the past few years we've been coming to The Little Village for Christmas Dinner. Each year the food has been fantastic. Our server this year was Cheyenne (spelling???). She was extremely pleasant and extremely efficient. She was excellent.

I didn't know I had to specify "table"...I am handicapped and all they had was a booth which was difficult for me to sit in...I made the reservations quite a bit ago and was told that they had nothing else available...so just sit "the old people" anywhere was how I felt. We usually book for Christmas Eve and/or New Years Eve...not gonna happen anymore. Thank you.

We celebrated a family Christmas Eve at Little Village and it was perfect for a wonderful evening out. The food was excellent and the wait staff was very efficient. They had enough staff on hand to handle the large crowd and tend to our every need.

The food and service was absolutely amazing. I couldn't ask for anything to be better! It's so cozy and inviting, I feel so welcomed every time I go! Thank you Hugh, Doc and Clarence for making this a Christmas time memory for my sister and I! We have decided to make it a Christmas Eve tradition!!!

The restaurant was extremely loud so it was impossible to talk to anyone at the table. There was a table next to us of women who were screaming to each other. We management to see if they would ask them to politely lower their voices, but they did nothing. The food took over an hour to make it to the table and when it did it was cold. Not kinda warm but cold. The fettuccine alfredo sauce was thick because it was so cold. One dish of pasta felt like it was fridge to table without the heat. This place was all hype and nothing to back it up. We went for a special occasion, so it was such a let down the even was not what was expected. I'd say find somewhere else to eat.

The bread is delicious, but service is sub-standard. I ordered a dish that I didn't like and was told "well that's what you ordered." Which was accurate, but was hoping I'd be offered the chance to re-order and enjoy my meal/experience.

Food was excellent. Everyone (all 13 of us) enjoyed their meal to the fullest, from the steaks to the fish dishes. Desserts were great as usual. the atmosphere is charming, décor beautiful and Christmas music delightful.
Waitress could use a lesson in reading customers...would they want to talk among themselves or have a long conversation with her other than the meal at hand. A lot of mistakes were made in giving the right drinks and food orders to the right person.
All in all, we will be back. This is an annual event for us. Thanks for the great food.

The Village bread is always delicious. The house salad is great. Unfortunately, it took much too long to get our entrees on a Sunday night. The veal picotta was delicious. However, the filet was cold, and the fish was bland. Quality and service did not match the price point.

Our Anniversary. Great food and service, but got only 3 stars overall because of the noise level, seating way to cramped, and we were stuck near the door. Bread pudding was nothing to "write home about"; wife's comment was tasteless. That needs to change.
Complementary champaign was a nice touch.

Mike the waiter was outstanding and the food was outstanding. I think the biggest problem was the poor quality of the atmosphere and the place just smelled awful and musty. Downtown is so much better and the only reason we didn't dine downtown is because of the parade. The place should be better presented for a high end restaurant. Other than Mike, the staff didn't seem to happy to be there. Greeters were very unfriendly.

We love this restaurant and not just because of the Bread! I bring many people here for business lunches & dinners.
The only issues I have are the booth arrangements (too far from table) and Tilapia on the menu. There should be nothing less than Flounder in my opinion or replace with Catfish over Tilapia.
Even though I'm not a big Bread Eater...
The Bread is Amazing and Impressive each time I eat it especially with the Roasted Garlic.

It was okay, as soon as we got there we had to wait several minutes with no server greeting us and take drink order ,asked the hostess if we could please get some beverages,that's a bad start since I was a server for 20+ years, anyway food was average ,lukewarm at best! Server did everything right after the bad start!

The noise was overwhelming. They sat us at a small table where everyone was exiting. Customer's were passing by so close we had to cover our food and move beverages away from the center of the table. And the food was cold.Not sure if we ever go back!!!
Some components of each dish weren't hot ...
Some components of each dish weren't hot/warm. Red sauce had a distinct smokiness/mesquite flavor to it, very different. Steak was overdone. Server was nice, no issues there. Tray of dirty plates which is used as a constant bus area by the table for almost the entirety of the meal. Bottomline, I can say I've been now, and check it off the list.
