Really pleasant staff. Food is beautiful. Been to this place a few times and will go again. Family run business and you feel really welcome when going in.

Family celebration, they had lost our booking, but put us at ease and quickly laid and set the tables. (They did find the booking) but gave us complementary garlic bread, for the brief stress!! Great atmosphere, decor made it more so! All enjoyed what we had, service was pleasant. A tad expensive, but find most Italians are. Didn't realise it... More

We walked in without a reservation and were warmly welcomed by smiling staff - always a good sign! Both of us ordered steak and my partner chose the hot stone option, which he thoroughly enjoyed. My steak was cooked perfectly to order and served with a tasty cheese sauce. Fortunately, I managed to find enough room for the home made... More

Lovely food, a family concern and they are so friendly and helpful. Since the new menu has been introduced - Portuguese it has become very busy and sometimes it is impossible to book a table. Would recommend this restaurant to all visitors to the area and locals alike. You won't be disappointed.

We tried Virgilio's because of the reviews on Trip-advisor and it didn't disappoint. We were warmly greeted when we arrived with our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children). The waiter Fabio was a lovely, polite young man. I asked him about 2 dishes and he advised me perfectly. We decided on the mixed skewers and the chicken skewers,... More

This has been a family run restaurant for many years serving freshly cooked meals in a relaxed, welcoming environment. It used to be our favourite spot to wind down, relax & catch up on the week on a Friday evening. A couple of years ago approximately the menu was revamped as was the decor and the restaurant is now a... More

High quality food and pleasant service. A little on the pricey side for Colwyn Bay hence the 4 stars and not 5.

The team at Virgilio's are always welcoming and polite, and the atmosphere is always great. On the last visit, they had a lamb streak seasoned with rosemary and garlic, cooked on a hot stone on the specials board. Being a big fan of the beef steak equivalent, I gave it a go. It was by far the best lamb steak... More
