Nice Restaurant for Italian Food

If you love Italian dishes, Villa Medici is for you. Food is quite pricy however, the quality is good.

Very private place for a dinner. Ambience is great. Staff are helpful and very efficient. Food is not bad. Not as spicy as I would have wanted.

I advise any person coming to Victoria island to go there. Business meeting or couples, am surprised that such a great food and atmosphere exists in Lagos

I attended two events back to back at this restaurant of late and was quite pleased with the quality of food. As I have not been there in a long while, was pleased to see the refurb work that gives it more classier and cool ambience. The salmon starter was a killer. The outside bar on a dry day is... More

The reviews of this place are very good... so we went. The place was empty the night we went (Thursday evening!). The menu was limited - they did not have several items that were listed. The wine we ordered was not available - so had to substitute for a more expensive bottle. Finally, the bill could only be paid in... More

Came here for my daughter's birthday lunch and had the restaurant practically all to our selves. We had a starter of tempur calamari which was alright. The main dishes however were delicious. The Moroccan chicken was so tender and perfectly seasoned. The steak royale in mushroom sauce was divine. To top it off, the waiters threw in a dessert on... More

I went for a business lunch and had a good meal. The spicy prawn starter was good as was the fish that followed. My colleague had the beef carpaccio and the chicken. Everything looked very good and service was very professional. A good place for a discrete lunch or dinner as the tables are well spaced out. I believe there... More

Great dining experience with a good selection of wines and gourmet cuisine. Loved every minute of it and the garden bar was not half bad. Solve the car parking issues and the experience would be even better.

The food is excellent and so unique for Lagos. The staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The mustard shrimps are superb, but then again everything I have tried has not disappointed me. I have been a few times for lunch.
