This place is always hopping. Entertainment is always good and the nightly specials are amazing. There's always something you can't find anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Our favorite Italian restaurant in The Villages. The lobster ravioli was amazing, my husband absolutely loves the seafood pasta dish that is a special.

Red Sauce is a great small Italian restaurant on the square in Sumter a landing, The Villages Fl.!! Eating can be outside or inside.. The wait staff seems to change slot, but we usually get good service. Many dishes to choose from and daily specials. We always enjoy taking visitors there during their visit and are always pleased.

The food was ok but not worth a second visit. The resturant was quite noisy for a relaxing dinner place. However, the bar scene looked great! Live music and dancing. It just wasn't what we were looking for.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, and it was amazing. Seated quickly and the lettuce wedge was outstanding ...I'll go back just for the salad! It was the Saturday night after Thanksgiving and it was very busy .. but the wait staff was very good and didn't rush us. The manager came over and asked how everything was,... More

Our group was promptly seated (had reservation) and the server was wonderfully attentive and personable. Food, as usual, was excellent and served hot. Although the restaurant became quite busy, the server was actively involved with us and helped make the experience a pleasant one.

Great service and good food Let's start with the host Carrie and our server Jessica, both are outstanding and pleasant. Even the staff holding the door when we came in was a nice touch. Take this the right way, food was great, I'm just not a huge fan of going out for Italian. All the food was good but we... More
