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.

This is such a lovely relaxed restaurant. The food is yummy and the staff are delightful. 8 of us recently celebrated a special Birthday and all at Shardana went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful evening. Thank you.

The food was bland. I asked for extra chillis on the pizza which they didn't put on, but then charged me for them. When I queried this they made a fuss about it. They did eventually remove it from the bill, but we're quite rude about it as if it was my mistake not theirs. I wouldn't eat there again.

I went to this restaurant for a lunch. The service was very friendly, welcoming and quick, so top marks in that department! The restaurant itself is a glass building, tucked away down a side alley with a little courtyard. I imagine in the summer you can sit outside. It does not have an intimate atmosphere - I wouldn't go for... More

There were - and still are - only two others in here. It is 6.15 p.m.and Shardana has been open 15 minutes. The food I can vouch for, having been 6 times before. Hitherto the service has been excellent, and warmly friendly. Today (07 April 2014) The Waiter From Hell appeared instead. He tapped his pad without offering a greeting.... More

Place was empty apart from one other diner. Difficulty making ourselves understood when ordering. Spag bog looked like it came out of a tin, couldn't taste any chilli in the arrabiata, but worst of all the mushroom soup - ordered because it was veggies - had bacon in it. When asked what the soup of the day was we were... More
