Without doubt a good find. 4 people with 4 starters 5 main meals on skewers 2 sweets a bottle of wine 2 Malibu and... More

Visited Virgilio's last Saturday, what an atmosphere, wonderful evening. The food was fantastic as was the wine. The owner Iolanda even came to sit with us for a chat at the end of our meal, what a lovely attractive young lady, dressed to kill. Thank you to all the staff for a great night. xxx

Dropped in on off chance and we were quickly shown to table after drink in sunshine, sangria a bit thin to say the least and ice cream was icy but starters and mains were great and tasty. Hot stone steak was described as Conwy valley by my husband so if it wasn't then that was best compliment of night. Good... More

This family know how to run a restaurant. Fair prices, local produce, excellent wine and make you feel special even when you are not dressed for the occasion. A fancy specials menu at reasonable cost if you like, but the regular menu is out of this world- The sardines! Oh and the whitebait...oh and there is the cannelloni, sent from... More

Nice little restaurant, friendly service and plenty of choice. Myself, the wife and daughter thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Virgilio’s, very family friendly and a warm welcome. The Pizza’s were tasty, not too large and the salads well put together, the Wife's Tuna steak was really good as are the Portuguese potatoes and the Chocolate fudge cake. All the food... More

Went here for a friends birthday. It was my first visit to the restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the Prosecco went down a treat! Couldn't fault this restaurant all all. Looking forward to my next visit. Thank you Virgilio 😃

I have to say the customer service is excellent and the atmosphere is good. However, the food was overpriced, lacking in authenticity and a complete let down. Gambas (Spanish for "prawns", Camarao in Portuguese). Something has been lost in the translation as the English for what we received is "shrimp") Sardines were headless, dry and looked like they'd been overcooked... More
