Great food and service! Fantastic authentic Italian restaurant in the suburbs. Will be going back soon!
In general, we like Villaggio's Restorante. The food and service always seem to be pretty good. My biggest complaint is that their live entertainment, while mostly good, tends to be too loud. If you go there with friends, and expect to have a pleasant conversation, that might not be possible.
On our latest visit, we went for dinner at 6p. Before the music started, someone from the band walked around asking if the volume was okay. They turned it down, and then right back up. When the music started at 6:30, we could no longer talk to one another.
It would be better to have the music lower while people talk and dine, and then turn it up a little at 8 or 8:30.
I had been to this place years ago.... maybe 2012... This place has stepped it up! They did a light remodeling and freshened up the place. The staff is so helpful and friendly! Food was outstanding!
THE RESTAURANT IS IN THE MIDDLE OF A STRIP MALL IN A NICE SECTIOIN OF ROSELLE. THE RESTAURANTS INTERIOR IS PURE ITALIAN. THE WAITER WAS PROFESSONAL, ENGAGING, AND RESPONSIVE. OUR APPETIZER AND ENTREES WERE DELICIOUS—WOKE UP OUR TASTE BUDS.
WE ENDED OUR 40TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION WITH THEIR HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO. A FANTASTIC RESTAURANT THAT WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Great food, great service great people. Highly recommend
Fantastic food as always, and the service was awesome! Can't wait to go back!
Good tasting dishes along with great service. The veal Marsala was tender served with fresh mushrooms and whipped potatoes. Chicken limon was served with just the right amount of garlic with sautéed vegetables and roasted potatoes. The complimentary appetizers are the best...focaccia, bread, olives, and pepper spread are very tasty. Never would one think this restaurant is located in a strip center, but it is! Well done!
This is a very nice restaurant. Food and drinks are very good. Entertainment on Saturday has not failed. This is a great place.
Been coming here for years and the service and food never disappoints!
First time there food was delicious we weren't rushed and the entertainment was unbelievable.
We went to Villaggio on Saturday night. Had 7 PM reservations for a nice dinner with friends we hadn't seen in a few months. Except a short time after we arrived the restaurant turned into a club. First there was dance lessons. The music was loud and people were up learning how to dance. That wasn't too bad. It was not that loud. And it was not going on that long. But then, after that came the band. Way too loud. We could not talk to each other. I had to finally walk outside to clear my head. The owner did offer to move us to a quieter place, but that is not the point. We went to dinner not a night club. It was 8 PM and music was blaring. If Villagio wants to be a club, be a club. But if it wants to be a restaurant then cut back on the music. Or at least the volume. Or even start it later. The experience was so bad my friend didn't even eat his meal. He said the music game him a headache. My wife woke up with a sore throat from trying to take to people at our table above the noise.
And, we were not the only ones. When I was outside I ran into 4 people who said they had to leave because the music was bothering them. Also, the table behind me left with a 1/2 bottle of wine on the table and 2 glasses half full of wine. I have to think they left for the same reason. Hands down the worst dining experience I have had in a while. If you make plans to do go dinner you should assume you will be able to talk to people at your table. If I wanted to go to a club, I would have.
Note: The owner was nice enough. He did buy us a bottle of wine, since the food also took way to long to be brought out. We got there at 7, had an appetizer and did not get our food until after 9. The waiter was also very nice and apologetic. But, as I said, the service was poor. Took forever to get food out of the kitchen.
The quality of the food was decent. And the wine was good. But the total experience, at least for us 4 was a complete disaster.
It was my birthday and we wanted to go somewhere different and thoroughly enjoyed it
Great food, great service. I love this place. Been here twice and they don’t disappoint.
Just one comment how does an Italian restaurant run out of meatballs at 5:30 but if the restaurant open.
Every day a special and always excellent. Will consider off menu ideas. However, the menu is quite extensive. My wife and I eat here fairly regularly and have never had a bad meal or poor service. Can be loud on weekends with music
The food is wonderful and a great value. Drinks are very generous.. when they have entertainment it’s fun.. just a great place
Restaurant was fairly busy for a Monday night, and they were extremely short staffed. The owner/waiter did a good job of trying to cover. Food was really good, I had the grilled pesce platter, calamari and octopus were very tender.
Amazing service; even better food.
Fantastic night and the music was the best! Kinda didn’t want to leave but people were waiting. Absolute jem! And our server was outstanding. Sadly I don’t remember his name. Hopefully they can trace it to our check. Will be back soon!
Great food and really loved entertainment by Beth Haines!
ALWAYS delicious and NEVER disappoints!!! Authentic Italian cuisine for sure!!!
Wow, so amazing
Service was slow
Very nice evening, food was delicious and entertainment was great
I had The chicken piccata, it was delicious! My husband had the lasagna Bolognese and said it was excellent as well! We sat at the bar the bartender was attentive and super nice!
Outstanding restaurant. The service is phenomenal. I love the family that runs the restaurant. The food is exceptional and reasonably priced. It is one of our favorites restaurant. Always look forward to going there!
I made my reservation about a week ago and we were seated all the way in the back in the cold drafty dining hall instead of the restaurant section with the band. I know they hold those spots for regulars but there were open seats and it was a snow storm. We weren't even given the option. Also, the portions were extremely small. I used to recommend this place but not after this experience!
Warm family feel restaurant. Warm space, lighting soft and a little bright. Very friendly staff and great service. Food was delicious. Very pleasant entertainer also was there. Really enjoyable experience.
Food and service were excellent! Had the lobster ravioli came with shrimp and a couple pieces of snow crab .
Great food and service!
The horror, the horror...
EVERYTHING was DELICIOUS!!!
Excellent food, service, value. Really loud when there is entertainment in the evenings...but love the Chicago Italian experience. Superb food!
Antipasto platter for 4 was delicious. Wonderful foccaccia bread served with the meal along with Italian bread with a red pepper topping, EVOO, grated cheese and a small bowl of olives. Salad was great. A lemon sorbetto palate cleanser before the entree was a nice touch. Three out of four of us liked their pasta dishes. The meat sauce on the spaghetti wasn't the greatest, but the meatballs were good. At 7:30 the entertainment started, and it was too loud for further conversation.
Food was delicious. Special attention was paid to our granddaughters.
Food is always consistently good. Staff is very friendly. Great value!!
We've been to this restaurant many times we bring family and friends everyone always has a good time and they always comment on how awesome the food is
Great time didn’t rush us great dinner
Made a reservation for 7 to celebrate a birthday. Table was ready when we arrived. We had to wait for 2 in our party who arrived a bit late but Edgar, our server, was very patient. He had a great sense of humor and was quite entertaining. He did a wonderful job. The food was excellent, as usual!
The food was very good. We sat in the very back corner and never really know who our server was. The live music was way to load, like concert level loud. We made a comment to the hostess but were told if they ask to turn it down the group turn it up. Even one of our server said it was too loud. The loudness distorted the music and had reverb from the mic several times. My ears were hurting after we left. I would go back but would check if they have any live music.
