We have always made Villagio our go-to place for the upscale atmosphere and fantastic service. Everyone is friendly, helpful and responsive. The food is always great, and the prices are not obscene. We live all the way north in Bergen County, but it’s always worth the trip. My wife is a vegetarian, and they always accommodate her diet and tastes. I have never been let down. Keep it up!

We decided to take a drive out of Manhattan for a nice Tuesday dinner in the suburbs, and I came across Il Villagio as an option. We both were so happy with the choice. The restaurant is an easy and relatively short drive from NYC, and the feeling is definitely that of being in the suburbs in the best sense. There was a fantastic young man who valeted our car for us. Then we went into the dining room - totally old school! Professional waiters who care about their job in immaculate tuxedos, a Maître d' who couldn't have been more gracious, and a lovely and large table with a great view of the dining room. Service was wonderful and caring. As to our food, we went with classics. Oysters Rockefeller, Clams Casino, homemade pasta which we shared, and delicious veal and chicken mains. We ended with a homemade cannoli and pistachio ice cream. Including one cocktail each, the total was $200 with tip, a fair cost for fine dining. It was just a great old-school meal which was precisely what I was looking for and we hope to go back very soon! Thanks to the staff for a nice simple Tuesday evening meal!

First time was a charm. I used to drive by here after work and the parking lot was always hopping. Went for lunch and it's pretty quiet at noon on a Friday.

The food was just great. And the wine wa too. The wine ist is pretty extensive.

Everything was just top notch. One thng however -- for some reason the plae has an abundance of little flying insects. Tiny. I've seen this at other places in the area. And once in LA a very tony restaurant was over run by them They are annoying and are constantly trying to get into the wine bottle and glasses! I wish they could be erradicated.
