Description: Delicious, authentic Italian food, prepared by a chef whose family's culinary history goes back four generations, and served in a charming 18th century Federal style building that is on the National Register of Historic Places: this is one restaurant that Cape Codders and vacationers alike should not miss! Villaggio at the Regatta in Cotuit is Chef Jay Bartolomei's new home for his restaurant, which he originally started in Falmouth in 2005. After successful years on Falmouth's Main Street, and winning New England Cable News TV Diners Gold Plate Award, Chef Jay is now enjoying the ambiance and the history of the Roland Thacher Crocker House on Route 28 in Cotuit. Using only the freshest ingredients, Villaggio offers diners Chef Jay's Italian specialties. Begin your meal with a starter such as Carpaccio - thinly sliced prime tenderloin served with minced red onion, capers and lemon zest with arugula and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, or Calamari Napoletana - lightly breaded squid fried with fresh Italian herbs, tossed with sauteed chopped tomatoes, kalamata olives and sliced banana peppers. Entrees include Chef Jay's Tuscan steakhouse and signature seafood dishes. Try Seafood Zingarella - lobster meat, jumbo shrimp and sea scallops sauteed with asparagus, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes, simmered in a Sambuca cream sauce served over pasta, or maybe pork osso buco, or a filet mignon. For your insalata course, try the caprese with mesclun greens, fresh mozzarella and tomato slices seasoned with salt and fresh ground black pepper topped with fresh basil, tricolored bell peppers, red onions and sliced banana peppers drizzled with an extra virgin olive oil. Looking for a more casual spot to share fun speciality drinks and fine wine with friends? The Tavern within Villaggio at the Regatta offers a relaxing and charming atmosphere. Host a special occasion at Villaggio at the Regatta and you and your guests will savor the memories for a long time to come. The expert staff will handle every detail. Villaggio will tailor the event - whether it's a wedding shower or rehearsal dinner, birthday party, business celebration, or special family dinner - to suit your wishes. -The Enterprise

Food was mediocre and overpriced. Drinks also not great (small pour, not chilled properly). Staff slow. Read owners comments on previous reviews, this should tell you all you really need to know. We live nearby and wanted to like it. Not nearly as good as the restaurant here prior (the Regatta) but charging high prices for just average food. If you want GOOD Italian, much better options nearby.

We pour 10 oz. Martini's and have 6 oz. wine pours, not sure where the problem is. Sorry you felt
the food is just mediocre, most would disagree and my prices are priced equal or less to the surrounding area establishments. We check on every diner while here to ensure complete happiness, why you did not voice your opinion to the server and or hostess is puzzling.

First of all, I will start by saying that I have never heard of a restaurant charging "market price" for Lobster Ravioli. How much lobster is in Lobster Ravioli? A few ounces at best?This place is horribly overpriced!! The service was terrible and the waitress was rude, miserable and had one speed- reverse. I waited 45 minutes for the appetizer. By the time it came, I had already forgotten about it.
I could go on and on about how bad everything was, but I will not waste your time reading this as you should not waste you time going there.

Do you understand what Market Price means Steaklover17, it means that the price to purchase the goods changes weekly, so since you dined here last summer, lets use Lobster meat. Before the summer months Lobster meat was $25 per pound, during the summer months it jumped to $35 per pound. That means that Lobster meat is $6.25 per ounce to buy before summer and $8.75 per ounce during summer. Know the facts before you bash Steaklover17.
