Awesome as always!
My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. They were extremely receptive to our special occasion. We've been there before and would go back. Classy place!!
Stay away from the veal, it is on par with encore frozen dinners other than that it wasnt to bad aside from dropping 200$ for a 60& meal
Great place had a great anniversary dinner everything was perfect will go again real soon
Wonderful food and a cozy dining experience! I would definitely recommend for a romantic dinner for two!
The food was great. I was happy to learn that their meat is locally sourced.
Have eaten here many times. The food is amazing. The service is fantastic even when the dining room is full. Very attentive to our needs. Have taken friends and relatives here and they always want to return! The entire staff is friendly and want to please you. Keep up the great work and efforts.
We had a wonderful experience
The service was awesome and so was the food
Can’t wait to go again
We couldn't have received any better service than that of Jusuf. He is an outstanding waiter.
Loved it! 45 minutes drive for us but well worth it and we will go again.
Villagios is our go to special occasion place to eat or when we just feel like a great place meal. I always say I’m going to try something different but end up with risotto Villagios because it’s amazing.
My favorite restaurant north of the North End. Dinner was perfect as always. Wonderful, helpful staff.
Our 3rd time to Villaggio, once again food exceeded expectations. Staff is very attentive and informed. Happy to hear that they are expanding their footprint to accommodate additional tables.
We recently returned for a second visit to Villaggio Restaurante in Hooksett. The food was just as good as the first time we visited and the service was even better. The only reason to take away a star is because of ambiance. There are just too many tables in the restaurant and we felt like we were dining with the couple next to us because of the proximity—but we weren’t! Also, I booked our reservation using Open Table and was required to leave a credit card in case we didn’t cancel our reservation in a timely manner (they would’ve charged us $25 if we didn’t!). I think this is uncalled for and it’s the first time I encounter this in over 2 years of using Open Table. Really ridiculous.
Amazing food. Amazing service. Tanja was fantastic.
Everyone was great. Some people dressed a bit more casual than I remembered the last time. IE hooded sweat shirts. I told them it was a special occasion and nothing was done for my husband. No worries just an observation. Other places have done a card or rose petals or a tag of happy Birthday on the dessert we ordered. However I have to push our reservation back 15 minutes and they were super understanding and accommodating. Thank you
My husband and I had a fabulous time!! Friendly staff and very accommodating.
What a wonderful experience. The service and the food was outstanding. Will be returning to this wonderful restaurant for sure.
Villagio is a great Italian restaurant in the North end of Manchester. They have several featured items that are off menu each night. The food there is fresh, made to order, and they make any consessions to any menu item. Nothing is pre made. The food is well presented, screaming hot, and is perfectly seasoned, all at a great value.
The dining room is tight, tables are on top of each other and small. The AC unit was leaking on the party behind us and they had to be moved, while someone was standing on a chair wiping the grates down. It was very distracting, and we were hoping nothing fell from the cieling onto our food!
But normally, a hidden jewl in Manchester.
We’ve been to Villaggio several times. The food is exceptional, and it has become one of oyr favorite places to eat. We have only one complaint. They do not properly chill their bottled white wine. On this last visit, it was served at what I would consider room temperature. It was put on ices for us, and was chilled enough, by the time we got to the second glass.
We left quite disappointed with my Birthday dinner. $14.00 antipasto for 2 had but 2 pieces of prosciutto and 3 slices of pepperoni. “Sampling of bruschetta” as stated in the menu description was nowhere to be found, and the 2 slices of tomato caprese were hard and unripened. Lasagna was also misrepresented on the menu, with no bolognese within or on top. Meatball on the side was dense and chewy. Seemed to us like they may be suffering and cutting corners, which is definitely not doing themselves any favors. Drinks were good, and service was lovely. We’re still on the hunt for good Italian in Manchester. 🤷♀️
We think this is the best Italian restaurant outside of Boston’s north end. Everything is prepared fresh, served hot, and presented professionally. There are always innovative specials. It’s the perfect size...big enough to support a culinary team, intimate enough to be attractive for special gatherings. If you haven’t tried this place you are really missing something.
Excellent food and service as usual. One of our favorite restaurants.
A small restraint in a strip mall. BUT on the inside it' a cozy place (with a full service bar). The staff is friendly and efficient. Most importantly is the food. It is tasty, with complex flavors always served at the appropriate tempature. I've eaten there several times, both alone and with others and was always satisfied.
Perfect place for date night or the best Italian food in the city.
Food and ambiance is always great, however our server was not very friendly or personable. Service always makes or breaks a dining out experience.
We had arrived at 7:30 for our 7:45 reservation. We were told our table would be ready any minute. Unfortunately, our "any minute" turned into an hour. We were so hungry by the time we were seated, we asked for extra bread and ordered appetizers as well as our dinner. To our surprise they gave us the apps on the house. The food was delicious , we tried chicken parmigiana, shrimp fra diavlo, lasagna. Every thing was delicious. We will go back for sure and give them another chance.
Hostess and waitress were both super friendly. Waitress was knowledgeable about menu and made good recommendations. She was attentive, but not overly so, just right. Appetizer, main course, and dessert all 1st class.
Tiny, tiny tables squeezed into a small area. Zero elbow room. Hostess raced us to the table and dropped the menus so they’d be waiting for us when we arrived. We lost the race. Waited ten minutes before being approached by waitress. Had a glass of wine...bread was fantastic. Ordered veal parmigiana and asked for angel hair instead of spaghetti. She said it was angel hair, but it was thick and chewy and matted under heavy tomato sauce. Veal was mixture of tender and chewy/fatty portions, also under thick, pasty tomato sauce. After food arrived, our waitress disappeared. Waited 15 minutes for her to finally return. Asked her immediately for the check. Won’t return.
Delicious every time! We have had consistently good food and service.
Food is always amazing no matter what dish you try. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Very nice experience, food was fresh and delicious and the service outstanding
Everything about my experience at this restaurant was exceptional. The food was as well prepared as I’ve had in Europe at fine restaurants. The service was impeccable . The value for the meal was right on. Do yourself a favor and check this place out.
Very rude manager and waiter. Sat us in a very cold corner and had no interest in adjusting the ac when we brought to their attention
First time there,Our waiter explained everything in detail which was great. Food was excellent. Next time we will leave room for dessert.Definitely will go back.
Villaggio is our go to place when we want a casual upper scale restaurant experience and meal. We have always had amazing meals and a staff that rivals all other restaurants in the area. The restaurant has been here for 7 years and the owners have done a terrific job of keeping it friendly and warm as well as providing great food and a comfortable place to relax as a couple or with friends.
This place is awesome! The food is tremendously delicious and the variety is surprising. The staff is very welcoming and the waiter we had knew a lot about the history of the restaurant and everything on the menu. It is too bad I live an hour and a half away or I would make this my destination every time I go out to eat. Truly a great place!
Another amazing meal at Villaggio! I brought a part of five and every single person was delighted. This restaurant is the best Italian cuisine in the Manchester area!
We went to Villaggio on a weeknight, so understandably it was not as busy as I am sure it is on weekends, and the noise level was not bad.
The food was good, and they were very accommodating. Our waitress was excellent.
Yes, I will go back again, but it is not the BEST Italian restaurant I have been to in the Manchester area, but as I said, it is good. There were no complaints from anyone in our group of 4. It was a pleasant evening.
I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with bread and a nice virgin olive oil and olive dip, an amazing bowl the soup of the day was Pasta e Fagioli I think it may be the best Italian soup I have ever tried. The server Jusuf recommended a glass of cabernet to accompany my main course which was Melanzana Parmigiana (Eggplant) wow, It certainly was fantastic and an accompaniment of spaghetti which I could not finish so I brought it back to the hotel. (I never do that when I am on the road). This may be the best Italian meal I have ever had in the US. My server, who seemed to be everyone's server this afternoon is a tribute to his craft and professionalism, I am sure that not one table did not feel they were the only table in the house. Highly recommended and I will return before I leave Manchester! Outstanding!
Great food, Fresh and exciting every time we go..
