In 1985 the Villari family opened what was soon to become a neighborhood gem. Located in Gloucester Township, NJ, Villari’s Lakeside has been serving paramount quality Italian cuisine for almost three decades. When Joe and Nick Abbate took over operations in January 2001, they were determined to maintain everything that everyone has grown to love about the restaurant while still improving and modernizing everything from the atmosphere to the plate. The menu, while it still maintains the classics that made the restaurant famous, has grown to include delicious fare with a more Sicilian flair. Every room in the building has been restored since the Abbate brothers took over operations, as well as the addition of a beautiful patio overlooking the lake.
