As a local I love the Villa and always recommend to guests! It's a must, great food and staff. It's just a shame it's always fully booked :)

Having visited this restaurant several times I am delighted to see the standard of food and service has remained excellent. Although quite small the atmosphere is very good and staff are very friendly. I keep the phone number so that I can book a table when in bow ness as it is usually fully booked.

I was surprised by my partner with a weekend in the Lakes and a visit to Villa Positano for my birthday. The whole experience was fantastic. the staff were attentive without being to much so. The food was one of the best Italian meals I have experienced. Made my weekend special. thank you.

Excellent food & fast friendly service. Good atmosphere and I would advise booking to avoid disappointment. Plenty of families present & they were made very welcome. Well worth a visit don't be put of by the odd poor reviews.

Booked a table on a busy Easter Sunday, had been advised only had table till 8, not an issue, the service was fast, friendly and efficient. Owner or manager? .... Attentive. The food was great for all the family.
