My sister-in-law and her husband, who live in The Villages, took my wife and me there for dinner a few days ago. We had a bit of a wait to get a table. It was the holiday week, and, clearly Red Sauce is a very popular choice. Our waiter, Casey, as busy as we was, took very good care of... More

This restaurant is just ok; nothing great and there are many other (better) Italian restaurants to dine at. Location is perfect at Lake Sumter and is more of a bar scene than fine dinning.

This place is advertised as being like Italian American restaurants around the country. It was very good. The bread was tasty. Butter was infused with marinara sauce and was really good. Salad only had 3 dressing options but the house was amazing and robust flavor with very fresh leafy salad. I ordered chicken french which is hard to find outside... More

We attended a large birthday party at Red Sauce. There were about 40+ people in a separate room with great appetizers , open bar and choice of 3 - 4 salads and entrees . Food was delicious, servers were all great and handled drinks very professionally. The atmosphere added to everyone's enjoyment...... a wonderful experience for all.

Had the Chicken Piccata with their house risotto was very good. My husband had the Chicken Parmigiana with pasta and thought it was very good. We have always enjoyed our meal there.

We eat at Red Sauce often. I have a great relationship with the managers and hostess. Some night there is live entertainment inside and that is always fun.

We've been to Red Sauce numerous times and for the most part it's a consistent enjoyable experience, so much so that's it's our "go to" choice for visitors. Staff is well trained and several of the wait staff have fun personalities. Of course, in a sea of mediocre eateries in The Villages, Red Sauce with consistent quality stands out. Pizza... More

The winter months can be tough to eat out as a group here at The Villages that is why Red Sauce is the place to go, they take reservations! Service is good, food is also. I am a full time resident and will support them all year long!
