Great Italian restaurant, run by Italians. Can't fault any of the dishes we had, all excellent and reasonably priced too. Recommended.

We have been going to Villa d'Este for several years and have always enjoyed its friendly atmosphere, delicious food and excellent service. For this reason we chose it for lunch to celebrate two family birthdays with 50 guests. The event was a great success; the food and service to its usual high standard. Everyone was very complimentary with several guests... More

Excellent friendly family run restaurant with consistently good food. Al a carte can be pricey but set lunch is fantastic value. Sweet trolley to die for. Excellent for a romantic couple or a big family celebration. I have been here twice in the last month and was so impressed I just booked a table for 16 for my mothers 80th... More

We took our kids here (aged 7 and 2) for Sunday lunch - and it could not have been better! Wonderful service from the most friendly and attentive waiting staff you could ask for. And less than £15 for a two-course Sunday lunch is amazing value for money. Make sure you save room for the dessert trolley, though - it... More

Had a good dinner here. Service was excellent and the food itself was tasty, fresh and authentic. It's not high end in style but genuine and delicious none the less. The restaurant isn't as big as it seems as they have used mirrors cleverly to create the impression of space. Unfortunately these do reflect a lot of sound and the... More

Top notch traditional Italian Been going here for around 23 years and it is always excellent. Probably my favourite restaurant for a family or business lunch or dinner. These guys opened up outside their normal hours on a Saturday lunchtime 12 years ago just for us to have a small wedding reception. These days they're open every Saturday but are... More

I have eaten at Villa D'Este quite a few times and have enjoyed every visit. The service is excellent as is the food and their Dessert Trolley has so many delicious choices, that one portion is never enough so they often let you have a bit of a few of them, brilliant. I will most definitely return.

We have been to this restaurant at intervals for nigh-on 20 years, and it retains the feel of authentic professional family Italian service. Although not every dish has hit the spot on every single visit, our most recent was outstanding. The service was great, the food was well executed, the sweet trolley was awe-inspiring as ever and the value was... More
