It wont take much to make this place superb. At moment its a bit hit and miss. The staff are friendly but sometimes miss the obvious. I like the decor, open plan kitchen and my risotto was perfect. Go with a relaxed Italian attitude and you will have a great time.

Delightful Italian family run restuarant in a quiet alleyway just off the main High Street in Guildford-lovely pizza, (nice thin crust)-excellent fish-we had Seabass-which was well filleted (no bones!) and not over cooked. Of course all topped off with the delightful Mary who brings more than a touch Italy to this quiet Guildford backwater. Give it a try you will... More

I am a big fab if Shardana's 'sister restaurant' Al-Vicolo and u have to say, Shardana did not disappoint. The food was exceptional, the service was swift and polite. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone wanting to enjoy authentic Italian fresh food. I'm so glad we chose not to go to one of the bugger chains if restaurant... More

A very pleasant lunch. A fantastic pizza, freshly prepared, although I wish the tiramasu had a bit more coffee in it. Very friendly staff. Worth checking out

Was expecting something authentic when we visited this owner-run Italian. Bruschetta was merely a pizza base covered in onion and English tomato chunks. No balsamic, olive oil, basil or garlic that I could detect. Pizzas were OK, but again no real Italian tastes. It seemed to me that the food was dumbed down to suit the British market and this...

Mixed style from the staff, from offhand to really friendly. Food was good but just sad that you sit in a restaurant alone, just empty and the space is not welcoming particularly considering the location. The design decor needs a lot of work to get people in Food as I say is good but service and ambience completely lacking.

Went there to have a good pizza. The staff and the quality of the food did not meet our expectations. Calzone was pretty miserable, not many ingredients in it, plus didn't have any taste. My pizza was well done on the outside and watery on the inside. Horrible way to serve a pizza. No taste whatsoever. Very average the skills... More
