The food here was absolutely delicious. The 6 of us all had different things and we were all delighted with our choices. I had the seafood stew (amazing). 3 people had pizzas/calzone, 1 had mushroom pasta and 1 had a salad. Apart from one beer, we all had soft drinks and the bill was under £100 for 6 of us!... More

This was only our second visit to this great little find even though we have lived in the area for almost five years. The food is great, really tasty. If you are coeliac don't worry they offer gluten free pasta. The service is warm and friendly. My only criticism is that we had to wait a fair while to pay... More

Having eaten here before I had no worries about returning, how wrong could I gave been. Maybe it's August and staffing is a problem who knows but the service was poor The food was no where near the normal high standard, bland watery pizza does not do it for me. The bill here is not a cheap Italian night out... More

I'm local to the area and have been searching for a nice Italian, other ones in Guildford are pricey, overrated & poor service. Shardana seems to be the exception. Only negatives would be small dessert portions & lack of background music (visited on a quiet Monday night).

Shardana hosted our wedding reception a week ago. The staff did an amazing job of keeping all of our guests happy and served a delicious 5 course extravaganza. No request was too difficult and several of our guests commented that Meri, Jonathan and their team anticipated their needs by suggesting different drinks etc. before they asked. The food was excellent... More

Decided to try Shardana on recommendation and was not disappointed. Great choice of venue with young children, and really delicious food. Not priced very differently from the likes of Prezzo/ Strada but way better food. Superb Calamari, and lovely Pizzas and Pasta. Really enjoyable. Friendly staff.

We went to this restaurant for a family lunch for our sons 21st birthday today and it was a great choice. Three of us are allergic to wheat and we were well looked after and there was plenty for us to choose from including gluten free pasta available with most of the pasta dishes. All of our food was delicious,... More

For me, this is one of the tastiest Italian restaurants in Guildford. The tastes are fresh and full, the cream based dishes are not too heavy and the staff are always friendly. It is brilliant for a less formal meal out. I highly recommend the Pappardelle Porcini.
