I am giving this a 4 rating based on several factors. The food alone would not have given it that high a rating. The service was excellent. The timing of it not so good. We had asked for a delay while we had our appetizers and that did not happen. The food itself was OK. The price was very reasonable... More

The pizza here is wonderful, but equally good are the salads and soups. I started my meal with a cup of delicious tomato bisque which was followed by a vegetarian salad loaded with roasted chickpeas and fresh greens.

Good food, friendly service. Great happy hour prices. The restaurant wasn't terribly busy, but that really didn't matter because our waitress was very attentive. They have about five different beers on tap, the IPA and the Italian beer were delicious. I got the Italian sub which was a little too bratty but the meats and vegetables on the sub were... More

The restaurant has a relaxed feel with comfortable booths. The service was very friendly and we were well looked after. We had the spinach and artichoke dip with toasted bread and it was delicious and absolutely full of fresh spinach and artichokes and covered with cheese. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs which came with three large tasty meatballs.... More

My husband and I had dinner at this location, as it was very close to our hotel. The aroma hit you from the parking lot. The Italian bread was fresh and delicious. The salad was crisp, with a nice zesty dressing. The pizza, oh the pizza, was fabulous. Perfect amount of cheese and sauce. The price was above average for... More

Pizza was excellent, good the next day too. Clams & Linguine were ideal just the right amount of pasta, garlicky and lots of tender clams.

Having been to Villagio in the past and having been satisfied with the food, we were disappointed in our dining experience last night (July 24, 2016). The minestrone was thick with beans with very little liquid, so it was almost solid. No bread or crackers came to the table until we were almost through eating our soup. My partner had... More

We dined here with family. They have nice menu selections and very tasty salads. The pizza was very good and cooked New York Style. Prices are reasonable and would highly recommend this restaurant.

Since my last review of this restaurant they had a change of ownership. And with it went the outstanding quality of the food. Not only the service is inattentive these days, also the pizzas are not comparable anymore with what you found here a few years ago. But prices are still high. Even Round Table is a better choice.

Greeted by a super friendly outgoing server who even held open the door, was the start to a great experience dining at Villagio. They started off with tasty warm garlic bites, which the server recommended added Parmesan cheese to, if we did not have a lactose issue. We ordered pizza and a meatball sandwich. Both were made fresh. We watched... More

The idea of Villagio comes from a marriage between time and place; the old neighborhoods of New York City and the abundant plains of California. What California brings to the table figuratively and literally, is its abundance of fresh produce, fresh starts, and the opportunity to reinvent. And so it was with these two places and time in mind that we set out to build a restaurant that would meld the two. With pizza dough made from scratch, hand stretched and cooked in a traditional pizza oven, our proprietary pizza sauce and the freshest of ingredients, Villagio invites you to dig in and enjoy our food, our warmth, and our relaxing ambiance. A place where old world tradition, meets new world freshness.
