I have been coming to Il Villagio for 38 years. I am never disappointed. While I have moved out of the area, I make it a point to visit whenever I return to Bergen County. All aspects of service and menu are top-rated. On this occasion (birthday), Ralph, Marcos, Sebastian and Seth took very good care of us all evening. Can’t wait until I get a chance to visit again. Keep up the exceptional work, Kudos to all at Il Villagio—from all the behind the scenes staff, the waitstaff and the owner.

Chilean Seafood Special was excellent as was a shrimp and scallop over Risotto special. Prices for specials were inline with menu prices. Service was attentive and outstanding without bothering you. Extensive wine list with prices to meet all budgets. Would definitely go back.

Food was great. Service was amazing. There might be an event going on which might be loud. But the atmosphere makes up for that.

This was our first time at Il Villagio after years of hearing wonderful things about it and no one was wrong. For such a big place, the room was very quiet and we could hear our entire party talk without screaming. The food was outstanding and service impeccable. Wine list was wonderful too. We will be back!

Too much traffic on the GWB so stayed in N.J., glad I did. I haven't been here since the renovation and was hoping it remained as good. As it turns out, it's even better, veal cut with a fork, very tasty but not overdone. I had a Halibut special that was out of this world. A little pricey, but I don't mind the up charge when everything is without regrets.

One of our favorite restaurants! I wish there was more room between tables. I think every table was occupied and the noise level was high. But it was a Saturday night! There were no complaints with the food from any in our group of four.

Absolutely fabulous. Service was really terrific. We each got twin lobster tails, the best last details we’ve ever had. Unbelievably soft. The shrimp cocktail was great too. Everybody that works there was wonderful! Thank you so much! We are looking forward to coming back.

My husband and I have gone to many restaurants for our anniversary. Lately we have been very disappointed. Not this time. II Villaggio is worth the trip and every penny. The food was delicious and service the best I have had in a very long time. We were not rushed in any way for fashion.
If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. Thank you for making our special day even more special.

We came to Il Villaggio for dinner this pas Saturday to have an early celebration dinner. We got married on March 24th 2018, and had our reception at Il Villaggio which was absolutely amazing and everything we imagined and so much more. We love that we can come back every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary at such an amazing restaurant. The food was just as incredible as we remembered from our wedding. The staff were so professional and attentive. We cant wait to come back !

We were celebrating a birthday, the staff was very attentive not hovering. The menu was varied and the food delicious and well presented. When dining in an upscale restaurant I expect impeccable service, and the only fault I can report was that the waiter removed plates while some were still eating.

Some people are not bothered by this, but I find it annoying. I was hesitant to say something after he strarted so I didn’t. I hope the establishment changes the policy on removing plates or at least asks before they do it.

If i dine here again I will make it know that I do not want plates removed until all diners are finished eating.

Took some special customers out to dinner. They were very impressed all around. At the end of each course they raved about the food.

Once again, Il Villagio comes thru !

Over all a very nice place. The dinning room was classic with a high ceiling. Wait staff dressed in tuxedos were attentive. Food was expertly prepared and tasty.

My only negatives were, we were seated almost not in the dining room even though I made a reservation about a month in advance. The courses came out just a little to quick. However it was Valentine’s Day so I would go back again.
