6 of us had dinner here last night and it was a really fantastic evening. It was full, buzzing with atmosphere and very welcoming as always. The food was outstanding and the venison probably the best I have ever eaten! Wine perfect and service great. I could not fault any aspect of the evening

If you want to have an excellent three course lunchtime Italian meal from a varied menu and have a good quality wine, in a warm and welcoming restaurant, with first class staff and to finish off picking from a lovely range of home made sweets from "the trolley" and all for around £25 per head, look no further than Villa...

We took our sister and brother in law to this restaurant to celebrate their 70th birthdays and had a really superb lunch. The food was excellent, the service exemplary and as for value for money, we thought it was amazing. We would certainly go again as it made such a pleasant change from the usual chain of restaurants. Thank you!

Recently attended a birthday lunch - see Johanne's review below. There were around 50 of us so we took over the whole restaurant for lunch on Sunday. Nice welcome with glasses of champagne ready - but even though loads of people were turning up, they were happy to go the bar to get me a lager (I'm Welsh!). Staff very... More

Thank you to Nando and his team for a wonderful lunch party on Sunday 9th November. We were looked after so well and the food was delicious. The staff were organised, attentive but unobtrusive and created a very relaxed atmosphere and did very well to make themselves heard over the chatter and laughter! Nothing was too much trouble and a... More

Italian cuisine is one of my favourites and this must be up there with the best... No pizzas to be seen but well prepared and varied menu. Don't make a final choice until they have told you about the specials as I changed my choices completely! Asparagus starter followed by a T bone veal steak - delicious!

Had lunch here recently with an elderly friend and was left extremely disappointed. The restaurant itself is beautifully appointed, clean, bright and welcoming. The older members of staff are a little stiff around the edges, very efficient but a little standoffish, the odd smile would be nice, it was only lunch after all. My main criticism is the fact that... More

We visited for our anniversary and it was great. Something of an old fashioned Italian Restaurant, with good old fashion service. Not a pizza to be seen, but asparagus with goats cheese as a starter was superb. The choice of mains was good, various fish, steaks, several veal etc, but I plumped for one of the days specials; duck in... More

We had dinner here as a special treat and it was delicious. The service was excellent, as was the food. We did find it a bit expensive though. The meals do not come with vegetables and these are added on to the price. The desserts seemed to be homemade and there was a large choice. I would recommend this restaurant... More
