Foster’s family opened Village Pizzeria and
Ristorante in 1988. Featuring northern Italian cuisine and an award-winning
wine cellar, the eatery offers diners a pairing of food and wine “that
tantalizes the taste buds.”
The family educates and informs customers with regular wine tastings and other
charitable social gatherings that often revolve around a love of wine.
The boat launch at Villago is open now, as the workers
there have the key.
