Once for dinner with my wife. Ordered Veal Marsala. It tasted heavily of "freezer burn". I complained and I recd a new meal which was OK. This never should have happened. The second time, we decided to try the Take Out Pizza. We checked the www menu and the Prices. I then called and ordered the pie. At the restaurant,... More

You know that old saying: Don't judge a book by its cover. It fits this place to a T! From the outside, Villagio Ristorante looks like a dumpy pizzeria. Inside it looks old and worn. But this I is one of the best upscale Italian eateries I've ever beens to. The waiters are all old school Italian. The menu has... More

We dine here often and service, food, and overall experience is top notch. Alex makes evening special and remembers all of our favorite items and what we don't like. Prices are very reasonable. Entertainment during the week is a nice touch. Thanks Villagios

We have been going here for years. For a while we stopped when the quality took a dip, but have been going regularly for the past three years and have never been disappointed. They have an extensive menu with daily specials, including a huge serving of osso bucco. Prices are reasonable and meals come with salad and garlic rolls. We... More

Simply the best! Authentic, fresh, All wait staff is from Italy. Harp playing sets the mood, and the singer is right out of the movies. Giuseppe is there every night. In 11 years, I have never not seen him at the helm, with wife on the harp. Love it. And his mom makes the can no long and Tia misou.

We have eaten at Villaggio several times. Their veal dishes are wonderful. The wine list is limited to mostly Italian varieties. The main issue we have is with the service. It is often slow, bordering on indifferent at times, even when it doesn't appear to be busy. We will go back for the food, but only when we are in... More

Authentic Italian food. This restaurant has been at this location for more than 20 years. A local favorite, it has it's regulars and has stayed in business because of the quality food and the very warm and friendly staff. And everyone gets to know Giuseppe, the owner.
