I have never eaten in this restaurant but have always ordered for take out. They are convenient as I am coming home through Manahawkin to LBI and had been put on my "approved" list. In my first 5 or 6 visits, the food was well above average. The service was pleasant and on nights that I had a large order,... More

We used to go here alot . It was always quite good and when you were lucky to get Kelli as your waitress, your order came out exactly as you asked for it. The food the last time we went,(October '16) was terrible. Simply flavorless. We always order the Italian food as opposed to the Mediterranean so that should be... More

We come with our children and grand children for dinner. Our server was friendly and the food ok . The decoration of the restaurant is a little bit old fashion and sad.

We had an excellent dinner at Villaggio. It is a vibrant restaurant. Very open and airy. You can see the kitchen which is great to keep young kids entertained. The service is excellent, food was delicious and it's BYOB. The menu has something for everyone. The skillets looked great. I'll try one next time..

Every time we come here the service and food are perfect- Architecturally interesting interior motif- it takes a little bit from Disney's "Its a small world" or one of Epcot's "River Gondola Rides".... quite a nice effort on the design front......nice bathrooms too. The kitchen is in plain view and I am telling everyone that they have chef's that are... More

Food was good two years ago...not now! Service was horrible too. Had to give 1 Star by default. Menus were dirty. Binds & window sills dusty. Fake flower on table. Ordered fried calamari for the table (4 adults) & it was OK. Server cleared our bread plates and later came back to clarify our orders. At that point he asked... More

I love Trip Advisor but Villaggio is not ranked according. We went there with family. Great atmosphere, service, reasonably priced and BYOB. We all had something a little different - Seafood, chicken, pasta and kid meals. All excellent - Try the Grouper Siciliano or Carlos skillet. I'm unsure about the Manahawkin rankings because #24, 26 & 28 are all out... More

Delicious grouper that melted in your mouth! This restaurant is definitely underrated...I would definitely go back too. If you go on a Saturday night ask for Luceria! Great manager and owner! :)

We used to like the Italian food here but our last visit was less than satisfying. Some people I know like their Mediterranean food better. I like to have my side pasta aioli, (garlic and olive oil). On this night, it was a struggle to get the waiter to understand it, even after translation. When it finally arrived, there was... More
