We enjoyed a true Italian experience in the centre of Guildford. We were welcomed as friends even though it was our first visit and the food was the real stuff and cooked to perfection. It was really one the best Italian restaurants we have been to since the Colombino d'Oro in Holborn and then Old Compton Street closed some 30... More

I do not regularly write reviews but after yet another wonderful meal at this authentic Italian, I felt it compelled to pass on this recommendation to others. In a town now drowning in faceless chain restaurants, this feels like a real find. Tucked away off the high street, this isn't necessarily somewhere you would simply stumble upon. On our first...

Have seen Shardana tucked away in a side street for a while and had never been. Took the family on a whim and was very pleasantly surprised. This is genuine, family Italian experience. Great service, very good food and great all round experience. Be hungry when you go as portions are generous but prices very reasonable. I'll definitely be back... More

Why would anybody eat at pizza express or similar when you have a brilliant and authentic Italian restaurant just off Guildford high street. Great food, wines , service and value. From a quick pizza to 3 course meal Shardana is fab!

We have been to Shardana many times and the food is consistently excellent. The staff out very friendly and whilst the service can be a little slow when they are busy, this is not a major problem as the portions are a good size so a break in between is welcome. One thing I really do wish they would address... More

We stumbled across Shardana and are really glad that we did! We had the 2 course set menu at under £10 each and can't imagine that there is any better value anywhere in Guildford - all courses were freshly cooked and full of Italian flavour, service was excellent and the overall atmosphere was a delight. Will definitely return!

We came here for dinner yesterday and there was 10 of us. The staff are very attentive and friendly, food was slow but expected from italians. We ordered 3 large platters between the 10 of us which was just enough. The food was lovely and would definately go back again soon :)

The reviews of this restaurant are quite good, with only a few that are poor. But the latter hit the mark for us. We had a nice starter of mushrooms bruschetta. But my wife's main course pizza was undercooked to the point of being inedible. When she pointed this out, the restaurant did the decent thing and didn't charge us... More

We visited for dinner with our 3 boys (8,6,4y) one of whom doesn't like pasta or pizza and we had one of our best family meals ever. The service is warm, welcoming and very child-friendly. The food was fresh and cooked within full view. The lasagne was made from scratch while we waited and was so delicious my eldest son... More

I've been fortunate enough to go to Shardana 3 times during my time studying in Guildford. Once for a party, once on a date and finally with friends. For the party they had pre set a beautiful long table and we enjoyed drinks on arrival in the bar area which is comfortable and out of the way from diners. The... More
