Description: It is difficult to beat this romantic setting along the Saigon River. Its spacious gardens and airy terrace makes it a tranquil location where everyone feels relaxed and right at home. This is also the place to be if you’re in the mood for authentic Italian cuisine, not far from that of the traditional restaurants of Roma. Whether you’re craving seafood, homemade pasta, pizzas baked in a wood stove or lamb shop, all based on exemplary produce, carefully handled to extract maximum flavor. Mouth watering dishes with attractive names like Seppie in Insalata, Tortelini in Brodo, Agnello Scottadito or Agnello Scottadito… Fantastic food all aided & abetted by charming staff & great location. The bar is also the perfect place to meet friends or for coffee break while watching silent boats pass by… So close to the city center but a world apart!

Eventhough we are living in HCMC, we stayed at the hotel for 1 night. I had booked this hotel as a surprise for my bf and we were really looking forward to a romantic and nice weekend. Nothing else then good food, sun and relaxation. We arrived with high expectations but I have experienced better stays in far lower priced... More

We just spent only 1 time here and would not think for the second time. A nice and huge villa, but not the best service, food is ok not much impressive. We ordered some drinks, the manager "i think" did not understand and brought us a wrong drink. There were just a few tables which are chinese and vietnamese, did... More

After reading lots of wonderful reviews.....me and my finacee went down with high expectations on New Year Eve. Had our massage at Spa Authentic before heading down for dinner. Was not informed about the buffet dinner when making reservation online. Was taken by surprise by the USD45/ person without drinks price tag. (Dinner must be not bad at least) Setting... More

This restaurant is definitely over-rated! Decided to have my dinner at Villa Romaine after my massage session @Spa Authentic on New Year Eve(Happy and satisfied). Firstly, i was not advised on the buffet dinner. Initially, the ambience was quite romantic but the invited "band and singers" spoilt the mood ;( Me and my partner were frowning throughout the dinner. Buffet... More

Authentic (south) Italian food served in a great setting with the romantic colonial hotel in the backdrop and the river passing buy with the occasional traditional boat cruising by. Most amazing was the wine list, great choice and great prices (especially for us living in Thailand)! we'd go back just for that. Service was attentive and good although the English... More

When I first came here for a business meeting, the fantastic sight of the restaurant attracted to come back. And it was just wonderful they have boat service from District 1 directly to the restaurant, called Saigon River Express or sth similar. It is not cheap compared with a 15-minute cab, yet the experience is really good. The food and... More

This is a very romantic spot to go for dinner- equally popular with wealthy Vietnamese and well-heeled tourists staying at the hotel or tripping out from District 1. The river backdrop to the palazzo hotel certainly adds atmosphere. Service is attentive, but too tutored and not natural- not unique in that respect. Spaghetti with shrimp and zucchini, Spaghetti with clams... More

Last week I went to Villa Romaine with some of my friends. The food was fantastic and with the setting it felt like on holidays in Italy. The service was very friendly and attentive and we all had a wonderful evening there.

This place is surely the best Italian in the city (not that there are that many nice one in the first place). The outdoor seating is one of the most romantic and relaxing setting that we had dinner at in recent years (except of course Bali ...) and the food was very good with one of the best wine lists...
