Great food! Service could be better..

I've been here quite a few times, and the food has never disappointed me! It is also a good price and does Italian food very well! The lay out is superb, and the designed fits the restaurant. A few staff members however seem to ignore the needs of the table, this has happened on a few occasions... read more

I came to this restaurant with my girl friend twice in the same week for dinner and lunch. We loved the starter baked mussels and chief special lamb cousins. Even lunch time, you can still ask whether the chief can make their special menu. We tried their pizza on first visit but didn't like it. However, we really think the... More

Eating at Villa Italia is all about tackling vast portions of blodge at seemingly reasonable prices. Do fool yourself the menu appears Italian Even the decor might suggest an Italian influence However the quality has always been poor. We were going to a film at Q.F.T. close by and made the mistake of going to this restaurant after an absence... More

I have visited Villa Italia twice in the past year, both with my girlfriend. The look and feel of the restaurant is fantastic, and it seems very much like an authentic Italian experience, with an unrivalled atmosphere. Sadly, this is where the magic dies. The service was very average on both visits, especially when ordering drinks after we had finished... More

Our family visited the restaurant on a Monday night, which turned out to be quite a busy one, with almost all the tables full. There were 5 of us in all & our drinks order was taken & delivered to the table in good time. 3 of us went for the pizza, 1 for the meatballs & 1 for the... More

Went as a couple for Saturday evening meal. Both dishes were lovely and service great. As there is no booking we went early so got a table immediately. There was a queue when we left at 7.30 but it was moving well. Lovely atmosphere with families couples and parties. Prices are reasonable and we will go back.

Great food, great service, good location and very good choice. Just come back from Italy and the food was very compatible to what we are in Rome. We went on a Wednesday and it was really busy.
