The pandemic has not affected Il Villaggio from continuing to deliver excellently prepared dishes with premier service. The Chilean Sea Bass is absolutely wonderful.

It was my our first time eating here and I think we were expecting more elegant and gourmet food but instead we found ourselves with a view of Tun down and dirty furniture and dirty water glasses. The food was not all great. It was an ok food. The service was very attentive and try their best but for the amount of money you pay to eat here the food should be great.

Excellent dining experience! Best service. Delicious food. Need I say more? Yes. My husband and I were delighted by our first dinner at Il Villagio. The hostess and waiters were highly trained to offer polite and skilled service. My husband said the Chicken Scarpriello was amazing. And he is not easily impressed! I had the chicken soup dejour that tasted homemade with fresh ingredients and not over saturated with spices. Very good. Fresh pappardelli was so good! We plan to dine here frequently.

Celebrated Valentines Day with my wife at Ill Villaggio where we enjoyed a delicious meal. I've had countless business lunches here, but for some odd reason this was the first time having dinner here.

My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass while I went with Braised Short Rib over fettuccini. Both of our dishes were cooked to perfection and my short rib was one of the best I've ever had. We both had Waldorf Salads as starters, which is a nice treat since most restaurants don't have this on their menu. To wash it down our waiter recommended Louis Martini Cab which was perfect.

The atmosphere at Ill Villaggio is extremely elegant and the service is always impeccable. I highly recommend for lunch and now dinner!

I never received my side dish with my main course, even after asking two of my waiters! It took at least 20 minutes just to pay the bill and leave
