I first visited the restaurant in 2013 and was extremely pleased with the food and service. However the last time I went I was disappointed. The food wasn't as good as it had been before. It was a shame as the atmosphere is always great and the staff are friendly, but due to the food I couldn't go back again.

Virgilio's restaurant in Colwyn Bay has always had a nice atmosphere and ambience. New Year's Eve was a special treat, celebrating before the family travelled to their native Madeira. Opened as an Italian Restaurant, Virgilio's now specialises in pizzas and Portuguese cuisine. I had a sea bream (which I fell in love with when on holiday on the Algarve) to... More

Staying with friends for a few days they took us here. It was super. We shared mushrooms, antipasti, garlic pizza, lasagne, and a pizza. We were so full we couldn't move. The restaurant is great with great staff. A great Italian for a change. Our friends live nearby, very lucky. It was just before Christmas and it was really busy.

Went here for a meal with my parents and had a lovely time. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, the food is fresh and very tasty and the service is lovely. If you are in Colwyn Bay do not miss the opportunity to enjoy a meal here. Prices are also very reasonable.
