The food is "standard" but ok. The staff smiles and tries hard to please customers. Drinks are a bit over priced but as it is a vacation resort, it is to be expected

Very good food in a central nice place, very nice people working there, I ordered veal parmigiana and it was huge and very good. Make sure to make reservations, it gets extremely busy very early.

Wonderful full English with thick sliced toast and plenty of choice of jams etc. Really set up for the day. Only problem was we asked for brown bread and got white - but it was lovely anyway. We...

Food: I had 3 course dinner at Villa Romana and the entrée, main, and dessert is just really beautiful! The crispy pork belly as entrée is good! In my opinion it just not really crispy on the skin but its still fine. The beef cheeks for the mains and sticky date pudding for dessert, both of it were amazing!! (5/5)... More

Poor service - we were not offered water for the table, nor parmesan for my pasta dish. the music was too loud and not in keeping with an Italian restaurant, more like a night club. Would not go there again; try Yaya's Greek restaurant upstairs!

We walked past Villa Romana where fun 60's music was playing, a breeze was wafting and delicious aromas were calling us - perfect! The staff are just lovely and really added to the holiday mood. We enjoyed the full and continental breakfasts which were... More
