    Crystal took great care of my girlfriend and I! We made last minute reservations for 5:15 and were promptly sat in a quiet corner of the dining room as they hadn’t been hit with their dinner rush yet. We’ve been many times and the food was good as always. The carbonara was outstanding and not like the Americanized creamy version. Classic egg and parm sauce with perfectly cooked pasta. Always recommend this quaint hole-in-the-wall restaurant!

    Excellent place… Excellent food… Excellent service…Excellent ambience. The only drawback is that the bar is open to the restaurant and can be quite noisy. Fortunately, they play the music reasonably loud, so it does tend to be acceptable.

    Our waiter was very professional. The food was flavorful with a reasonable portion size. The starter salad was unexpected but lovely. Dessert is worth the calories! It's a gem inside you wouldn't expect in a strip mall.

    Wonderful place for a group of friends of 47 years to meet and catch up. Several of us have dietary needs, and our server went out of his way to make sure everything was done to specifications. Highly recommend this restaurant - and I think we were the noisiest table there! Cosmo was spot on, thank you!

    We arrived at 4:20pm for our 4:30 reservation. We were seated right away. There was one waiter on, and he was waiting on a table of 4. We waited 30 minutes before we were even offered water. Two other wait staff had arrived but they just stood around talking to each other. It wasn't our waiters faullt, the table of 4 people were giving him a lot of problems. There is no reason we had to we should have waited so long. it was over an hour before we were given menus. We won't be going back because of the poor serves we received.

    Even with a reservation we had to wait half an hour to get a table. We liked where our table was but the dining area was way too loud. It did quiet down after 9:00. The food was excellent and our server took very good care of us. We did notice a couple with a later reservation than us get seated before us.

    I want to start by saying I love Villagio’s. The food is always fantastic. A wonderful mix of so many flavors and colors. The wait staff is attentive. While it is on the pricey side, you will not find anything else in the area that offers these selections. Try the specials, they are exceptional! I suggest going late in the afternoon before the dinner crowd is already there. It gets loud when this intimate restaurant fills up. Also make reservations or you will likely not get it.

    Food was terrific. We had the gnocchi and eggplant Parmesan. They offered the soup of the day or one of four salads, including a caprese (which was outstanding). Terrific choices for desserts and a nice wine list. The only downside was that the tables are awfully close together and parking can be limited. However, that’s not going to stop us from going back!

    I doubt anyone truly Italian is cooking in this restaurant. There are so many issues with this place. When reservation was made we requested a table in the quieter upper section and not the lower middle as we had been there before. Our first time was mediocre at best so we gave it a second chance. Hostess offered us a table practically in the entry way of the restaurant where everyone could walk by you. When told we requested upper section, she said if you really need to sit there you can. If you are celiac do not eat here as it is not safe. The restaurant was definitely not concerned with the needs of someone with dietary issues and especially celiac disease. Told the waitress several times one of our party was celiac and had to be gluten free. The gluten free pasta, even ordered extra al dente, came out so overcooked you couldn’t pick it up with a fork without breaking to pieces. Cross contamination was rift as there was regular spaghetti pieces in gluten free penne. Veal came out breaded and NOT gluten free even though meal was served and was told gluten free. Told the waitress and her comment was she wrote down gluten free on the order slip, so she felt absolved of the error. Not even an apology from a manager. They remade meal and served the pasta even more overcooked than the first one. No true Italian would cook any pasta this way ever. Noisy atmosphere and no real charm. Definitely would not recommend or return here.

    We had an 815 appointment and we’re seated at 8:30 very close to the door which in itself was not awful but our waiter rushed us even for dessert. He said, will you take this home are you going to eat it here? Our plates were picked up as soon as the fork left them in packaged, the food was awesome as always if you get the 815 or 830 reservation you’re gonna be rushed out the door for closing time

    What can I say? My wife and I have been coming here for over 6 years. The service and staff are amazing. The food is next level, and we have never had a disappointing meal. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The level of noise is indicative of the enjoyment the patrons are having, never obnoxious, but still quiet enough for an intimate conversation over dinner. Great place for a date. If your date is not impressed by this place, you're with the wrong person.

    Shanna was our server & was the best. She was completely attentive and when an error was made on my dinner, she noticed as she placed it on the table and exchanged it immediately. Our meals at our last visit was not as good, but this time, they were most enjoyable. Only negative was the noise level & sitting right below the upper level, the curtain should have been closed.

    Our third visit in our first week at Villaggio! Bravo to an outstanding kitchen staff! Bravo to 5-star msnagement for hiring & training a professional & amiable wait staff including Maitre D’ Jeffrey (dining room manager?). The ambience is warm, genuine and family oriented while encouraging couples to keep coming back for more intimate dining. The bar and wine list are excellent as well. Great pride is taken to present classic Italian cuisine with generous portions of homemade pasta, freshest seafood & meats, and heavenly (yet decadent) desserts. We sampled three versions of tiramisu: traditional, lemoncello & almond torte (on different nights). To die for! Reservations are strongly encouraged (and justified by the exceptional dining experience. We will join the long list of repeat patrons!

    The food was delicious! The web site said the restaurant opened at 4:00 but Open Table indicated reservations starting around 1:00. Called the restaurant around 1, no answer, just a recording saying they opened at 4. So we weren’t sure if our 2:45 slot was real. Couldn’t leave a message. Called back around 2 & they said they opened early for Valentine’s Day & couldn’t accommodate us if we were late so we rushed up the highway & made it. Many open tables all around us throughout our whole meal!

    My husband and I went on Valentine’s Day for a late lunch - they normally don’t open until 4. Both our entrees were wonderful - eggplant parmigiana and capellini primavera. Service was polished - polite, but not overbearing and giving us plenty of time to enjoy our drinks and subsequent meal, then cappuccino. Portions were large and we took home enough for the next day! Lovely vibe in the restaurant. First time visit, but won’t be out last!
