Perfect birthday dinner!!!

The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating and made all the provisions I asked for including setting the table to food allergies and food recommendations. The ambience was perfect for the occasion and the food and drink was exquisite, not to mention the dessert trolley. Will definitely go... read more

This is a hard one for me. This restaurant does not struggle for bookings & my review will not matter one jot to them, or any patrons. A hugely popular upmarket establishment Offering a fine dining experience. Always packed & bookings essential! My husband called twice to confirm our booking for a party of 3, but twice not noted, as... More

I always look forward going back to this lovely Restaraunt. The waiters are always so friendly, especially Francesco who makes us feel so welcome. There's always a good variety on the menu and specials of the day. The food is spot on, we love it. Thank you.....

My wife loves italian food and as a birthday treat we decided to opt for this italian restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. We weren't disappointed. We were warmly welcomed as we entered and throughout the meal the service was attentive but not intrusive. There was a wide range of specials reeled off by our waiter. This was well presented...

A friend visited me today and he wanted Italian food so we went to Villa d'este in Marlow. We had the 2 course lunch at £14.50 per head. Warm, welcoming staff and a highly enjoyable atmosphere and the food was superb. The food was faultless and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had the carpaccio and flat... More

Probably my 10th visit (or more!) Truly my favourite Italian restaurant for 20 miles. We took in the 3 course lunch for £19.00 and the menu was varied and delicious. Between us we had main courses or Veal, Lamb shank, Sea Bass and Rabbit. Amazing quality for a fixed price lunch!! I'd recommend it to anybody who likes superb, hearty... More

We were searching for a restaurant that was open on a Sunday evening, so that we could meet friends for dinner. The Villa d’Este was open. The previous time that we had eaten at the Villa d’Este had been about 18 months prior to this visit. I had forgotten that I had been rather disappointed on that occasion. This meal... More

Post Marathon dinner for 3 hungry runners and 9 supporters. As ever, excellent food and a dessert trolley that you can't overlook even if you mean to!

Great atmosphere and friendly staff! Food arrived promptly considering we were a table of 10 and was very tasty. We were slightly confused by the specials menu, the options were dictated to us by a waiter so obviously we could not remember them all! And there was a lot of choice. It would be much easier if there was a... More
