I have been for lunch with friends and for dinner as a couple, on many occasions over several years and have never had a bad meal. pleasant and friendly staff and a lovely setting with parking in the near by streets. always a winner.

We tried Villa Italia for the first time this week. The surroundings were atmospheric. The service was impeccable - nothing was too much. The waiting staff were friendly and professional. Our starters were lovely. i had the stuffed mushrooms with peppers and my partner had chicken strips. The main meals were delicious. I enjoyed the lasagna though it wasn't the... More

We ate absolutely wonderful Italian food at this restaurant. I would advise booking a table as we walked in off the street and had to wait a while for a table (but it was worth the wait). We had excellent mains, 2 bottles of wine and desserts for less than 80 euros. Definitely one to visit if in Belfast.

Just had a nice starter and main in this restaurant but like so many restaurants I know the chips lets them down. I can't understand why a restuarant of this quality uses rubbish chipping potatoes. After all chips are about 40% of the meal Over all a very nice restuarant and excellent staff

My wife and I have been coming here for thirty years; as always excellent food and service. On this occasion the service was a bit slow but the manager apologised with a complementary bottle of white wine for my wife and myself, and a glass of red for my daughter. We will be back. 😀

Visited villa italia last week and as usual, they did not disappoint! Had the mushrooms for starters, followed by their famous lasagne. The evening was finished off with a little slice of heaven in the form of their hot chocolate fudge cake! It's no wonder why this place has so many return customers! Definitely a must when eating out in... More
