We took our family of 7, including two small children and a vegan, to Il Villaggio for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. The food was very good and they were accommodating to our group by allowing the kids to order off the kids menu and offered our vegan a special pasta and veggie plate. My only complaint is that the meal itself was somewhat lacking - there was no cranberry sauce and the stuffing was not great. but other than that, it was great - and the service was outstanding. It's so nice to go somewhere where the staff knows how to really treat you like a VIP. I will definitely go here again for their full menu!

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It was a first time for us. The service was impeccable, Our waitress, Noami, was attentive, funny and professional. We started with appetizers of grilled calamari, lobster bisque and the wedge salad. All were delicious. I had the Shrimp Scallops Bianco for my main and my hubby had the Lobster Ravioli - both dishes were amazing! We finished our night with Tiramisu and Chocolate Lave cake. Both were out of this world. Can't wait to go back!!!

I made last minute reservations and was pleasantly accommodated on a very busy evening by Alesia and Dawn who were able to welcome my family for dinner. Their cordial and professional demeanor guarantied our great experience from the start and the rest of the staff made the evening an exceptional experience.

Cesar salad was drenched in dressing which made lettuce soggy AND $11.00! Lobster ravioli was 5 ravioli and a sweet taste. Noise level was ridiculous!! We shouted to each other all night. UGH!!! We put the X on it and sad because it was one of our favorites.

The food is excellent, tasty and prepared timely. The service is outstanding. This time our server Michelle was terrific. Personable, knowledgeable and very accommodating to our wishes. The decor and atmosphere is welcoming and very cozy. This is our second time there in a month and we will be back again before December.

Overall a good experience. The waitress forgot to tell us the specials. The food was really good. We were there with our two kids, ages 11 and 13. It was a family friendly restaurant. The kids really enjoyed their food. It's a BYOB, so that helped keep the price in check. We had an appetizer, four entrees, two sides, and three desserts. Total bill was $140. Would go again if back in the area.

My boyfriend and I visited on Sat night Nov 9th. We were seated right away (although, if we would have arrived an hour before we did, we would have waited a bit- which would have been worth the wait!) We had an 8:30 reservation (open table) made just 1/2 hr before arriving.
The service was excellent and the food was much greater than expected. We will definitely be returning.
Also, remember to BYOB! As we were not aware of that, however, we did go right down the road to a liquor store and purchased a bottle of wine.
For anyone that is unsure of BEETS, you have to try the BEET salad!!! Absolutely DELICIOUS

My girlfriend and I had a great dinner here last Saturday night. One of the best BYO's in the area, and worth the trip for us from The Mainline. Leek and goat cheese ravioli were fantastic, beef carpachio was beautiful and tasted even better. Such a warm atmosphere to dine in. Can't wait to go back soon.

Il Villaggio is a guarantee for a delicious dinner and it's been that way for years. It's worth it to order a Caesar Salad for starters. The bronzino and gnocchi are AMAZING!

Excellent meal from start to finish! For starters, our table of five shared the beef carpaccio, clams in white wine sauce and burrata cheese appetizers. All three were flavorful but more of a 1-2 person portion. Kayla our server was friendly, attentive and really knows the menu.

For dinner, two members in our party had the bronzino fish special, another two had the filet mignon with potatoes and I thoroughly enjoyed the scallop risotto with truffle essence. The portions were plentiful and all but me cleaned their plates.

Dessert did not disappoint! The salted caramel sorbet and chamomile panna cotta were delicious. Rounding out the group was chocolate lava cake with vanilla sorbet.

Il Villagio is a gem and we will be coming back for years to come!

It was a very nice evening. Food was very good as was the service. However it was a little noisy.
My only complaint was that we were asked to move to a smaller table after we were already seated. The manager wanted to leave the table for 6 open in case a large party came in.

The food and service were superb. My husband got the Tomahawk steak and it was absolutely delicious. My daughter had the filet mignon peppercorn and that was also excellent. The wait staff were very attentive to our needs. We will definitely return again for sure.
