Ristorante Villagio was opened in April of 2014 by restauranteurs Alex Kalas and Thomas Billante. With several restaurants in Miami and one in Chicago they have transformed the space that was once home to Mickey Mantle’s Restaurant & Bar (40 Central Park South) and opened the new Villagio On the Park, a refined Italian restaurant that allows al fresco dining with views of Central Park.
According to Alex, he and Thomas decided to open a restaurant in New York City because, “the many New Yorkers who have been to our restaurants in Miami have had wonderful dining experiences. Now they can be on their home turf and enjoy our authentic, fresh taste of Italy in one of New York City’s finest neighborhoods. ”
