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.

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.

Friday night was a full house, but service was prompt. The lobster salad is the best I’ve had so far. We were a party of seven people and everyone cleaned their plates, 👍 to the chefs great job.

Service was exceptional! Food was delicious! It's a very large place, but the dining room feels elegant and intimate. We were greeted warmly by the owner, Ralph, who remembered us from past visits. It is nice to be remembered and welcomed. We highly recommend Il Villagagio for ANY occasion ... or for just a casual evening!!

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.

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.
