An absolutely gem of a place with friendly service and delicious food. An interesting menu that mixes old favourites with more adventurous choices.

Fantastic service, fantastic food and an ambience that was second to none. Would definitely go back. If they bottled this and let it loose on the world it would be a global success

Visited as a family (including infant) one evening. Staff were very attentive and nothinh was too much trouble. The adults had peri peri chicken kebabs (not what they are called on the menu) served with potatoes and salad. Nice presentation, delicious chicken and a lovely fiery sauce. We shared a bottle of the house red - a superb Italian Merlot... More

What a lovely place Virgillio's is! We had a family pre- rugby international dinner last weekend with the family (ages 14-84), all really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, staff, and great food! Would most definitely recommend for any occasion! I can't wait to go again!

We hadn't been to Virgilio's for a couple of years and nothing had changed since our last visit, the usual warm and friendly welcome and pleasant surroundings. The restaurant was busy and when we booked we were told we would have to vacate the table by a certain time. This did not cause us any difficulty and we didn't feel... More
