This is a lovely place but just not for me. Food was lovely but not a menu to my liking. Service was great. It was me and my other half who came here for a nice romantic meal but it felt very crowded and loud almost a family restaurant. I would recommend this place but for me it was a... More

A reliable, well situated pizzeria that you don't have to book for. The food is excellent as is the service, despite the huge size of the restaurant (deceptively so, from the road). It is telling that other restaurants a stone's throw from this one keep changing ownership/identity, whereas Villa Italia keeps going unchanged. If it isn't broke, they don't need... More

Having not been here in a very long time and having fond memories from previous visits decided to call in for pizza. There was a queue but the wait wasn't too long and once seated out order was taken quickly. We had the house Shiraz which was grand, then the pizzas arrived. Really disappointed with both of them, soggy and... More

Visited here as part of a large group, who had prebooked. This is a huge place so I assumed they would have been well-used to dealing with multiple orders. Sadly, this was clearly not the case. Although the food was ok, the service was disorganised and poor. Most of the waiting staff were actually very pleasant and helpful and friendly,... More

I always have a soft spot for villa Italia, I used to go here regularly a few years ago during college and always found it to be a charming, busy, tasty Italian restaurant that served decent sized portions! Went back recently with my house mate and as much as i enjoyed the pasta dish I had, I felt it the... More

Heard great things about this Italian restaurant. I had the rice balls speciality. A tasteless dish. Meatballs and pasta. Some taste but nothing to give it the wow factor. Good part was the sweet. Service was very very slow. Watched others who came after us get served sooner. Others in my company enjoyed their meal.
