Real favourite with my family . Very nice warm friendly staff. Superb steak and pasta. Whenever we are in the area we will be going to enjoy the great food.

To their credit Virgilios was open when no other places were. Thanks for that! We found it on the expensive side for what it was and frankly it was a little grubby. The welcome was warm even if the actual restaurant was chilly. Please warm the plates, your food deserves to be served hot.

This was my first visit to Virgilio's it certainly won't be my last, even though we arrived at about 2.20pm ( not realising they closed at 2.30) we were made very welcome with no rush to get rid of us so they could close even though myself and my daughter were the only ones there, the atonsphere and music was...

Overall quite disappointed having read reviews before booking. Starters of mushroom and prawns were quite unimaginative and for £7 would have expected something better than a handful of very small prawns and watery mushrooms in oil and chopped garlic. Main courses were slightly better however meat on skewers was v salty and again loads of garlic flavouring. Didn't bother with... More

We travelled from Chester to visit this restaurant and well worth the journey. Food freshly cooked and gorgeous! Mushroom and prawn starter in garlic was fantastic!

We tried to book at the last minute on the Saturday before Christmas but they were full. We were just leaving the house for the pub instead when Virgilio's rang to say they had a cancellation, did we still want a table? Full marks for customer service for a start. Great Christmassy atmosphere inside with several parties going on. Drinks... More

I really like this place; the menu is varied and reasonably priced, the service is prefect and I always leave thinking about when I might be able to visit next! I recommend the espatada with steak and prawns or the bream, both with Portuguese potatoes. Will always be planning my next visit...

I recently attended Virgilios with a Tai Chi group for our Christmas meal (probably around 20 of us) and I cannot fault the meal or the service we received. Staff were very courteous and polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. This was my first visit to Virgilios and I have no doubt that there will be a... More
