Always good lunchtime service

I've dined there many times for lunch with clients and also for celebratory functions. They have always had excellent service and a great wine cellar. The food is always well presented and sufficient.

Went for dinner with friends for a catch up. Only went to this restaurant on their recommendation. I'd heard mixed things about Va Tutto but was open minded. The front of house manager/owner was the rudest person I've come across. Full of her own self importance, condescending and just plain rude, rude, rude! The food was okay - duck 4... More

Last night we dined at Va Tutto restaurant for the first time with our friends. It was a very disappointing experience. Apart from our company there was little to praise. The owner/waitress was extremely disinterested and non engaging in explaining the menu whilst taking our order, and even then, she didn't get it right!! The food itself was rather ordinary... More

I have been a few times, previously in small groups. Yesterday I was there for a 50th birthday, it was fantastic. As usual the staff are attentive and personal. I can recommend for any special dinner as you always feel special here.

Was there for a function, food and presentation was very good. We were also a little cramped for space. The waiters taking our drink orders were very ordinary, forgetting to bring them out even after an hour. The person opposite me never received his drink at all. Hopefully our host weren't charged for the drinks we didn't receive ? Waiters... More

My wife and I dine here regularly and have done so for years. The restaurant has two sections, fine dining and bistro, and the food in the latter is just as good, and less expensive. We dined there again last week - - couldn't help thinking that what makes this restaurant so good is the consistency - - everything is... More

We have been going here 5-6 times a year for the last five years. We have a mixed review. Some days the service is fantastic, other times, and especially this year it seems, staff are flustered, forget requests and somewhat brusque. We do book so assuming that the owners can manage the demands certain times. Menu is extensive -- perhaps... More

I came in late one Friday night with some girlfriends and we waited over 15 mins to be seated despite having a reservation. Staff looked at us but ignored us. Plenty of tables were available. Sparking wine had cork in it and tasted old and not bubbly. To be fair they did replace the sparkling but not without trying to... More

Previously we had rang to confirm that they could do dairy an dairy free dishes, they don't really maybe a few meals and so on which are the normal meals. They didn't even have a gluten free steak which is a staple for gluten free an dairy free. Overall the food was very average as well as the service and... More

I've been eating in Myrto and Paul's restaurants since 1994. Wedding reception, dinners for two, family get-togethers and business meetings. Va Tutto is bustling, warm and welcoming. Tables are a good size, well positioned and spaced. The menu is extensive and there are plenty of options for vegetarians and particularly for lovers of seafood. My partner raved about the steak....
