We were dining at Redsauce to celebrate my moms birthday. We brought our own cake. Our server, Ms. Stephanie, brought us plates and silverware and she even SANG happy birthday to my mom and she has a great voice! It made my mom feel very...special. Great service and the food was excellent. We will return!More

This is our fourth time here and always a great experience. Tonight we came with family who closed on their new house here in The Villages. Laurie was our server and she was a doll. She paid attention to details and made us feel at...home.More

I would have given Red Sauce a 5-star rating, but there was a Tree-Lighting Ceremony going on in the Lake Sumter Town Square and it was packed with people, including Red Sauce! Nevertheless, we were finally seated and enjoyed a great meal served by our...friendly, very busy server, Ashley. Give it a try if you're ever in the area.More

I took my daughter and granddaughter to RedSauce last night where we had a great meal. The server, Nikki, was so attentive and on top of things. She is very professional, friendly and thoughtful. In addition to the food, the house wine at RedSauce is...also very good. We will be going back again for sure.More

Food was very tasty. Plenty of inside or outside seating. Service was average. I did find that the area where we were seated outside was at bit unkept , cushions on the chairs were somewhat dirty and worn out looking. In addition the area around...our table needed a good sweeping. Overall good.More

The vibe here is what draws us back. Friendly staff, nice live entertainment. You can eat large--the full dinner with apps and dessert--medium (split a pizza) or small (meatballs and a salad). It's got a good wine list and a lively bar. Indoor and outdoor...seating just steps from live entertainment on the Lake Sumter square. Just a nice, neighborhood, go-to place.More

Kayla was our waitress and did an outstanding job taking drink, appetizer and main course orders for 11 people. We had our almost private area so we felt very comfortable celebrating this momentous occasion. The food was terrific as always. Having such a great waitress...made the night even more enjoyable ~ we never felt rushed, and she was very pleasant and professional catering to our every need. Carl Adcox was performing and had the whole place singing "Happy Birthday" to Joe, while Kayla presented and then cut the cake that we brought with us. Thank you to Kayla and to the entire staff at Redsauce for giving us such a pleasant evening! We will be back!!More

The bread was a little dry, like it had been sliced for days and left in the air too long. I hope in the time of covid it wasn’t from someone else’s table leftover. My meal was actually good, I had eggplant parmesan. The sauce...was a little on the acidic side and maybe a little heavy on the paste, but still I enjoyed it. The people I was with the food was terrible. The bolognese was floating in grease. Literally, the bottom of the bowl had a puddle of fat/oil, it wasn’t just it tasted to greasy. I complain about greasy food all the time at restaurants if you read my reviews, but this was someone else at the table sending the food back, someone I know who pretty much never complains. Also, one person inquired about carbonara and passed on ordering it because it didn’t sound like carbonara at all. Other Meals at the table were mediocre at best. I wouldn’t recommend it because I can’t control what someone will order, and too many meals were very disappointing. Also, as a side note, not one employee had a mask on.More

Red sauce was great today. Our server Alyssa is amazing. All of our food and drinks with no issues. Lasagna was great and so is pizza. Highly recommend.

Cindy...the schedule at Red Sauce says “Suzie Casta” is performing from 7 to 10pm. If you GOOGLE the phrase, Red Sauce The villages Entertainment, you can see the schedule for the month of December.
