This is one of my favourite restaurants and i have been coming here for years. One of the reasons is the staff. They are so friendly, charming and always attentive. Its great going there knowing you are going to get great service and superb food. Fabio, the owner, is a true gentleman and Francesco is so charming, funny and full... More

Great value £14 2-course lunch served by welcoming and efficient staff. The starters were huge and the mains of excellent quality - the sea bass in particular was superb. Don't be put off by the fact that this place is a throw back from 30 years ago, the style, the smoked mirrors and the music are all fresh off of... More

For service and attention to detail go no further We were given the choice of foods from the main menu and a plentiful listing of specialities of the day for starters and main course. The food was cooked to perfection, superb flavours and well presented. We attended for my birthday and could only manage starter and mains and just had... More

I visited Villa D'Este for a birthday meal and my family and I were really impressed! The food was great, the portions were really generous, the staff were friendly and the lunchtime menu is great value for money. I'll definitely be visiting again.

You could be anywhere in Italy and not experience better italian dining in an exuberant and uplifting atmosphere. This is no ordinary italian. It's a cut above the others. Service friendly efficient and unobtrusive. Food exceptional. Well done. We will be back to try the inexpensive under £15 lunch menu.

This place is an old favourite so I decided to take SWMBO (the darling wife, if the code eluded you) to celebrate her birthday the other day. We chose different starters and swapped half-way - both were excellent and plentiful. These were followed by a bunny rabbit for me and salmon for the missus, all first class, with lovely vegetables... More

We regularly eat at this restaurant and nearly always choose it over everything else available in the town. The staff are very welcoming and the food is always great.

Five of us had a delicious dinner at Villa D'Este. The service was very good and our waiter knowledgeable regarding wine recommendations. The restaurant was crowded and, after tasting the food, it was obvious why! The only reason I don't give it a 5 is because the choice of music (rock?) really didn't fit the otherwise lovely atmosphere.

Great food and wine with wonderful fresh fish although not particularly cheap...worth it. Always a cheerful welcome from genuinely Italian staff - most Italian restaurants seem to have staff that have never travelled further East than Maidenhead!
