We travel some distance and are frequent visitors to Villa Marina, we are never disappointed. The service is professional and friendly from Fernando and his team. The atmosphere is very enjoyable, never noisy but always relaxed. Located near to the river it adds to the pleasure. In short, good food, good service, fantastic value for lunch, wonderful desert trolly, we... More

On 7/3/2015 Villa Marina pulled off to perfection serving our party of 20 at 8.00 p.m. on the occasion of my husband's 60th Birthday in addition to coping with a fully booked restaurant! Without exception all our guests, who came from far and wide, were bowled over by the level of excellent service, the quality and breadth of the party... More

This restaurant is in a great location and is clearly very popular. The only criticism I have is that it is extremely noisy so it can be hard to converse with your dinner party but there are no curtains, carpet etc so this is most likely the reason. The staff are very attentive although they do seem very rushed and... More

As an Italian i feel obliged to review this so called Italian restaurant. The location is great and looks nice from the outside. Inside its quite small but clean. The service is slow. The food is at best average. The dessert trolley is reminiscent of an English idea of Italian restaurants from the 1970s, hence why it's generally populated by... More
