A very busy restaurant which is a good sign. And indeed I found the service, the surroundings and the food to be excellent. No complaints at all and will definitely be returning. All in all a very pleasant, enjoyable visit.

A great experience at this small, buzzy, town centre restaurant. Menu is split almost evenly between Italian and Portuguese dishes, but the latter are much more interesting. Minestrone soup was competent, but the espetadas de carne were superb. Top quality beef, expertly cooked and presented on the skewer. The lamb was just as good. Didn't go for the pudding course,...

This place is a fantastic way to start enjoying portuguese food, mainly the espetadas! Great atmosphere, with very friendly staff and wonderful food. Can't wait to go back to try the Espetadas de Carne..or maybe Camarão! Highly recommended!

This was the first restaurant I have tried since moving to north wales and I was SUPER impressed. Food was fantastic, service was great despite them being busy we didn't feel that anything was too much for them. Will definitely be coming back!

It might be a good restaurant according to the reviews but it has to be open first! The website says it is open on Saturday lunch 12 til 2 but it was not open today! No reason posted on the door either.

This was our first visit and definitely not out last. As soon as we walked in we were made to feel soooo welcome. The service we received was amazing. The food was excellent too - the Portuguese wine was fab. Thank you for a lovely evening. Xx

Virgilio's has been a permanent & popular eatery on Penrhyn Road in the Bay for decades, and my wife & I hadn't been there for many years, it must be said.
