Fabulous Cuisine ! Layout not so !

I went here last Saturday evening for a table booked for 8pm. As we arrived we were escorted to our table, not far from where the food is prepared and cooked. I did find that where we were sat had two main issues. Firstly both our chairs were back to back with other diners, in fact so close that... read more

Spent a wonderfully relaxing evening with my husband after dropping our daughter off on prom night. As always a very warm welcome and we were offered a choice of tables. Love the spacious layout of this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and the portions generous. Extremely pleased to find... More

My husband and I visited Va Bene with friends on a Friday evening. Everything was excellent. Fantastic Italian food. Great service. The décor is pleasant and the atmosphere good. We visit Va Bene on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended.

Visited here a few times now with friends, family and a date night with my partner. Staff all very friendly and accommodating. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and mouthwatering but my favourite dish is the gamberoni prawns, they're huge, the sauce is lovely and it also comes with salad and their delicious potatoes. There's a range of food... More

My food looked very odd when it arrived. Risotto marina was in a cream sauce with chunks of tomato which just did not look right. The rice in the risotto was just basmati swimming in the sauce. For £13 I expected proper Italian risotto rice. 2 small glasses of house wine £11. Would not rush back.

Visited here at 7:30 on a Wednesday night, only one other table of two were in at the time! Asked to sit in the window, although we suspected this was a ploy to make it look busier than what it was! Can't fault the food - good portion size and well cooked! Service was slow and a little rude, particularly... More

Friends and I decided to make a last minute trip to Va Bene on Saturday night. Despite being almost full, they still managed to fit us in and offer their best services. I ordered filetto pepe which was cooked exactly how just how I like it!!! Two of my friends ordered the swordfish which was very rich in taste and... More

We visited Va Bene on a Saturday night and were very disappointed with the quality of the food. Three out of four of out steaks were undercooked and raw in the centre, whilst the deserts looked and tasted like they were from Iceland. We had to complain to 3 members of staff before anyone apologised. After this point, staff seemed... More

This place needs a little more authenticity. They do seem to want to please: we just wish the food was rather more authentically Italian. If it were, this place could become a truly thriving local eatery.

Been here a few times - staff very polite, food very good and great choice - my only reservations is that the prices are quite expensive (they do / did a fixed price menu which is reasonable) however if picking from A la Carte then prices are dear - I appreciate it's Hagley but still, you could easily spend £80...
