Lovely place to eat and enjoy the ambiance. Staff are friendly and the food is good. Sometimes there is a harpest playing in weekends. Never disappointed.

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

The food here is always wonderful. We have been going for over 10 years. Sometimes, it can seem a little crowded and that can take away from the romantic ambience that we remember from the old days when they first started out. But, we would never pass this restaurant to go to another one. Ever!

The title says it all! I found this restaurant a little over 4 years ago and have eaten there many times. I have never had anything but fantastic meals. Any time I have out of town guest, I take them to this gem of a restaurant. They all rant and rave about the food and service.

Evening and food could not be better. Oh, forgot the service - Alex was a gem and made our evening even more special. Harpist was terrific too.

We were in Lutz recently and decided to find somewhere new for dinner. Found this restaurant on the Internet. Our initial thought when seeing the restaurant was that it probably wasn't for us. Not very exciting from the outside! However, we went in and were very pleased with our choice. The restaurant is very dated but lots of charm. The... More

Service is superior, food is excellent and their homemade Sangria is delicious. No Reservations required. Nice atmosphere. Good music. I ordered the Pescatore, The dish was beautiful. and plenty for two meals. The taste was impeccable. Highly recommend Villaggio Ristorante if you;re in the area!

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.
