Elegant/Quality/Delicious Food

We come to Il Villaggio for late lunch early dinner and drinks every couple of weeks and we love the place. Dennis the Chef is just the best there is and the bartender Jimmy is always very welcoming to everyone. Friday August 11, 2023 we had our wedding reception here. We eloped in April and decided to have a family celebration so we met with Chris who handles all of the weddings. Chris and his staff made themselves available whenever we needed anything. To answer questions, aid and assisting hiring vendors, panning menus, decor etc. This is a very well oiled machine that the Owner Ralph has put together. Our guests commented over and over again how elegant the setting is here. Ours was a more intimate crowd of 57 guests, however, they absolutely accommodate large full scale weddings in their grand ballroom which is also very warm and well appointed. Very inviting and elegant. The staff was on target all evening long from the servers, to my bridal attendant Angie, the bartender Steven, the Maitre D Leoand of coarse Chris and Dennis all doing their special part to make us feel like family. Our entire family raved about the food too. We had a five hour continuous cocktail party with vast food choices from around the globe. Aside from what we would love which is a lot of Italian delicacies, we had a Southern Comfort Station and a Havana Station that the guests went crazy for. They added a unique twist with different food choices. Every table we visited the plates were full of different foods everyone was trying. Guests said this was the most unqique selection and they could not decide so they ate as mush as they could have everything. First hour featured a raw bar of oysters, clams and shrimp that were fantastic. Lots of chafing dishes eggplant rollotini, sausage and broccoli rabe, meats, chicken IlVillaggio, pastas, salads, antipasto's, mozzarella, lamb chops, spanakopita, egg rolls, shrimp tempura, coconut shrimp etc. etc. The list seemed endless. The nest four hours were caring stations, homemade pastas, sides, the specialty stations, veal, chicken beef, prime rib you name it. All along keeping the bar flowing. The entire evening of music by Phil and Mary from NY Sound Machine was awesome, the photographer David Miller made sure to capture the festivities, the cake from Callandra's in Fairfield was fresh strawberries and whip cream just delicious! This was a night we and our family and friends will never forget, thank. you for making our dream wedding so perfect from the beginning of the planning process to the end! And we did this in a very short window thanks to Il Villaggio. Photos to follow...

Reception of my dreams

I cannot say enough good things about Il Villaggio. We had our wedding reception there on 9/23/23. From start to finish, Il Villaggio was a dream to work with. From the moment we walked in for the initial tour to the moment our reception ended we truly felt the love and support of the entire staff. From the food choices, the customization of our cocktail hour and dinner, to the ambiance they created with the lighting and cleanliness of the entire place, nothing is left to be desired. The bridal suite was perfect for us and our bridal party to do touch ups and have a moment to rest in between the different functions. We definitely plan to be back. Love love love.

Il Villaggio

Il Villaggio is THE place to have a wedding! From start to finish, our wedding was handled with the greatest attention and care we could’ve asked for. Their ballroom is gorgeous, cocktail hour is elaborate, and attention to detail is superb. Chris, and previously Patrick, are super easy to get in touch and plan with. Chris is very responsive to emails and phone calls and makes sure to work with the bride and groom to ensure their requests are met. On the day of our wedding, the whole staff was professional and respectful. From our bridal attendant, to the maitre d, to the wait staff and bartenders— they made our night so easy with nothing to worry about on our end! Chris made sure to have all our personal affects displayed in a beautiful way, including personalized bride and groom drinks. Our guests have been telling us that the food for cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert was all phenomenal. I can’t recommend Il Villaggio’s food enough, it is really of the highest quality. They also work with incredible vendors and we were able to find and work with Jenifer Studios, Broderick’s Florist, Danaro Limos, and Mondo Entertainment because they were recommended to us by Il Villaggio. We had such an amazing wedding reception and we owe it all to Il Villaggio! We can’t thank them enough!
