First time at the Villages visiting friends. This is our friends favorite restaurant in the Villages. The four of us enjoyed our food. The prices were very reasonable and our service was excellent. Outside eating area was packed but we went inside and we were seated immediately. We will be back!

We have ventured into Red Sauce several times and the food and adult beverages were always excellent. The wait staff has been very hospitable, attentive and friendly. We have always sat outside where you can people watch and check out the high-end golf carts. Lots of fun here people! :)

Great service, great food. Great location. Sit outside and watch the activities going on. Music on the square. They have 1/2 portions to order, so you can get what you want

Went to Red Sauce tonight and had a good meal. I ordered a half order of rigatoni with Bolognase sauce. I also ordered a small Caesar salad which I ordered without anchovies. The entire meal was good.

The Red Sauce is the best restaurant I have eaten at in the Villages. The menu has a great variety of foods and the price is very affordable. The Italian food is excellent.

The 15 minute wait for an outside table was not bad considering it was busy dinner time, and it was wort the wait as everything was great . We had the salmon & bolognese, which was done perfect . It was recommended by our server Cher who was very knowledgeable. We will be going back to try out other items... More
