Lovely Italian! Makes a change from the chain restaurants!

Really nice, well priced food and welcoming, friendly staff. Would definitely go again- one of the nicest Italians in Guildford!

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

Having eaten in all the other Italian restaurants in the town (Olivo, Positano etc) I keep going back to Shardana. Service is always very friendly and the food never disappoints. Definitely worth a visit.

The food is amazing and Mary and her family are incredible. Our son is coeliac and they take such wonderful care over giving him completely gluten free food. Everything is cooked from scratch and it is lovely to have a great meal in a unique restaurant with a really warm family atmosphere. When you see the large restaurant groups taking... More

Had a meal with two friends, the food was nice although I felt the seabass could have done with some potatoes with it for the price. Unfortunately the restaurant has no soft furnishings which made it incredibly noisy - my ears are still ringing. Service was a bit slow but it wasn't really a problem for us as we weren't... More

Had a lovely meal here recently; the pizzas are insane - so tasty and huge! The garlic bread with mozzarella was also fantastic and well worth trying! Wine was good and overall pricing of food was okay, if a little expensive - only 2 or 3 pizzas were under £10 and the garlic bread nearly £5 per portion but that... More

Great authentic Italian brother and sister operated restaurant. We had pizzas which came from a proper oven and for £9-11 were superb. Some great real Italian cantina wines not generally available in the UK supported with authentic Italian service. Highly recommended.

Excellent meal and very good service. A very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in this lovely Italian restaurant in the heart of Guildford. The Penne Pollo Ross was very tasty.
