Lovely surroundings, friendly attentive service. Good range of dishes on menu. We had Pork medallions in a creamy Mushroom & Marsala sauce with side of veg and garlic potatoes. The plates and side dishes were well warmed, ensuring meal arrived hot. Tasted great! We both indulged in one of the many sweets, again fantastic. All at a very reasonable price.... More

An old favorite that is almost always guaranteed to please. Lamb was perfect - service was good - atmosphere just right. Friday night and we were taken to the overflow first floor (there's a second floor as well, so quite like the sister restaurant Scalinis, just a stone's throw away in Botanic Avenue). And still not expensive by city standards.

Restaurant was quite full but we managed to get a table without reservation. Service was excellent. Our starters were excellent. Maincourse was good, but nothing special.

Had an excellent experience in Villa Italian yesterday after my daughter's graduation at Queen's. Location, service, value for money, food, wine; all first class, would thoroughly recommend.
