We went here last night following my niece's graduation. There were 6 of us and we were seated a great round table. 5 of us ate from the Graduation set menu but it was a tough choice given the other amazing menu choices. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. It was delicious and plenty of it. I had a steak with... More

Havent been here for more than 10 years. Still remember the very first date here! Restaurant relatively clean, average atmosphere, decor ok but a bit dated. Staff - inconsistent. Was served main course pasta and the lady staff did not ask whether we need cheese or pepper? 3/4 mouthful later, a guy noticed it (dont know how) and came to... More

Beautiful food, lovely staff and restaurant has a great ambiance. A little pricey but well worth it.

We have been going here for years and it would be our favourite restaurant. The food is always great with sides included in the price of Mains. The helpings are good nothing is skimped on. The service is excellent with very attentive waiters. We recently brought American friends here and they were amazed at the high level of service and... More

Wanted to go here for ages after hearing people rave about it. Went today for the Sunday menu. So much to choose from it was hard to decide. All dishes were really reasonable. The place was packed out. We had 2 starters and 2 mains with wine. Food so tasty and even gave us some pasta to try as we... More

We've always heard a lot about Villa Italia but never had the opportunity to visit. As it was my birthday my husband brought me here. Menu, food and service were excellent and portion sizes were huge for Belfast standards.

I had booked this for a special occasion and there were a group of 30 plus, adults and children. The service was excellent considering the numbers being catered for, the waitress had drawn out our table and wrote down our orders according to where we were seated which saved time when the food was being served. The food was fabulous,... More

I work very close to this restaurant so when having a lazy day like to head here for dinner before heading home. I'm a big lover of seafood so mostly order prawns here as they are fab!! The spicy prawn starter has so much flavour to it! I also love the prawn and mussel pasta main, with tomato sauce it... More
