Chef is wonderful...will make you anything you like...everything is cooked fresh.
The staff is the best. Professional and courteous. They always greet you with a smile.
Chef Dennis is the best!! The wait staff is very knowledgeable & cuurteous also. Cant wait to go back...best quality meat & seafood. Very clean & ambiance is top rated.
Excellent as usual.
This is a great, classy venue.
Dinner was excellent. Food was delicious, service was very prompt once we were seated and very attentive. Be sure to make an appointment (went on a Saturday night) as this restaurant is EXTREMELY busy. Had to wait an additional 15-20 minutes before being seated. Longest time we had to wait the whole night for anything. Very Happy we had the chance to experience this place. Food is $$$, but is quality and worth it.
Excellent service Sebastian is the best!!
Always the best food and service. Never feel rushed and always so welcoming.
$55 for Dover Sole special. My fault for not asking about price! Entrees served llukewarm. At those prices! Nice establishment with good service. Good for special occasions.
I had been here several times for lunch and business dinners which were always enjoyable. On this occasion, my wife and I celebrated my daughter's engagement with her fiance and his parents . We had a table for six with plenty of room and were not at all crowded. The food was excellent, from the appetizers to the salads, to the main courses to desserts. The service was first class and the atmosphere upscale with a nice crowd. I went overboard with the food, the champagne and the wine, but in the end the bill came to less than I had anticipated for this very special occasion. I would highly recommend this restaurant which will now be our special place for fine dining.
Great Spot for a nice Italian meal. Easy on and Off of 17 North
Was very nice
Will always be a favorite. Was a loud party in the far ballroom, but still lovely in the dining room.
Always a great meal at Il Villagio. Italian charm with fantastic food
We were a party of 4 and the order of one of the entrees was placed wrong when the the 4 dinners came out of the kitchen. Although the staff tried to fix the error quickly (by the way the waiter never came by with an apology) the rest of our meals sat because we did not want one of us to eat alone. The worse part was the restaurant did not try to compensate the mistake by taking the one entree off the bill which should have absolutely happened. Very disappointed with the lack of professionalism as far as doing the right thing.
Exquisite Fine Dining, delicious food and ambiance
A wonderful NYE...cozy table..great service..excellent entree choices. We had a great evening...then the surprise to find they had a live dance combo!!! What a great evening...we shall return next NYE!
New Years Eve was excellent. The service and food as always was outstanding. I would not hesitate to spend another special evening there.
My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance and the decor of restaurant. Our wait staff were very friendly and prompt. Our food was excellent.
They always do a nice job at Il Villagio. Food and service is good. Place is beautiful.
Superb food and service!
This was my second year taking my team for a holiday dinner here. Can't say enough about the amazing service, food, drinks and overall experience. Experienced and career wait staff, perfect wine selection, overall beautiful food presentation. Highly recommend. Wish I lived nearby!
Terrific. Wonderful service
Great for largest groups, food is always good.
Specials are always a good option
The waiter was preoccupied because he said he lost a sales check
He also brought us the wrong drink twice.
We have been to Il Villagio probably 10x
We used to come here often . Always excellent! Will make it our go to for Italian going forward.
Consistently quality food exceeded only be the tremendous service. A must every y=trip to the Meadowlands Racetrack where the food is inedible)
Graduation and new job
When by myself when forced to stay overnight on a weekday near Newark Airport. Ordered the veal chop, which came with shitake mushrooms and crispy potato wedges. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. Had a glass of wine, which was a generous pour. If I lived near there I would come regularly and bring a date.
Absolutely. We have been there twice and the second time we brought friends because we knew they would enjoy it. Food and service were great.
Nice elegant meal, many choices and alway a nice night out
We were in town celebrating my friend's birthday and this restaurant was recommended. We had a wonderful dinner and service was great with the exception of one server. He did not seem very friendly, always seemed to be in a hurry even though it was not that busy, and was not very helpful in recommending a special. I had a glass of moscato and my friend had a half bottle of a different wine. The server emptied her bottle into my glass! I noticed the error right away but he sped off before I could tell him. We alerted another server who quickly replaced both glasses and provided my friend another half bottle and me another moscato. Overall our experience was really wonderful!
The restaurant is beautiful but they are SO OVERPRICED. The food was good not exceptional by no means. Service was good ,atmosphere good ,but noisy . We had 4 adults to our party , We each had a salad, each had a meal, each had cappuccino, one desert and 4 glasses of house wine. The bill was $310 with the tip. Our meals were Salmon, Chicken, Fish, nothing out of the ordinary. They bring salami and cheese gratis ,and french fried potatoes gratis everything else ALA CARTE. Will never go back.

If you are looking for a really good Italian restaurant this is the place to go!!!
One of the best restaurants in Northern New Jersey. Very underrated. Shouldn't be.
While the experience was overall good, with prices charged we were expecting better.
We found several dishes were under-seasoned and some of the portions were on the small side.
We had a very pleasant dinner with terrific food and service.
Quality food, attentive wait staff and spacious seating made for a great choice to celebrate our anniversary.
Great tasting food and service at reasonable prices
