Went for a friend's birthday, which was noticed by the staff and a free bottle of wine appeared for the lucky birthday boy. Sat in a little corner a bit out of the way, so the atmospheres suffered a little but the service did not. This is the second time we've been and would go again, but only for a... More

I ate at Va Bene last Thursday with my wife. The place was buzzing and had a great atmosphere, and in general the food was pretty good. However, for an Italian restaurant the pizza was really poor. I had a vegetarian pizza which initially was under cooked, the owner - who was very accommodating, replaced it with a fresh pizza.... More

We ate at Va Bene last Thursday and had a delicious meal of sea bass. The service was wonderful as always, very attentive but not intrusive. We live locally and are always welcomed here as old friends, guaranteeing a relaxed and enjoyable evening. This is our favourite place to eat and the restaurant always provides well, whether we go as... More

Visited Va Bene on Saturday night to celebrate my Mom's 70th Birthday as a party of 12 family members. We had a fabulous evening. I have eaten there on a number of occasions but none of my family had and this was on my recommendation. No one was disappointed. Food was excellent and staff were extremely attentive. I can only...

We booked Va Bene for the mother in laws 'significant' birthday. Some of our party had eaten here many times and thoroughly enjoyed it. 14 of us were due to descend when we saw the recent reviews, which made us a bit nervous as we wanted it to be special. But given our previous good experience we went ahead. Thankfully... More

Just returned from a really nice evening once again at Va Bene & I thought I would share my experience with you all. It was, as always, a really welcoming, relaxed & most enjoyable evening. I have read some of the negative reviews & can honestly say I wonder if they were at the same place I have just left.... More

We have been regular visitors to Va Bene over a number of years and held it in high regard. But something appears to have changed recently with it rapidly going downhill. My wife and I visited with some friends and it was total chaos. We arrived at 7pm (as per our reservation) and it was nearly 8pm before we were... More

Would just like to say “Nothing has changed”, we are still the same people who wants our guests to have an enjoyable evening and go home happy. It was just Valentines night.(busiest night of the year) as we mentioned at the time of your booking that we had sittings 7-9 and 9 till 11. But as you reserved for a... More

We have been to this restaurant many times and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the food. But recently the service has remained fairly good but the food has been served cold. it seems they struggle to time the main course. we sat near to where the cooks serve and food just sits waiting to be collected by the waiters. I... More

There is a real dearth of Italian restaurants in this area of the country - discounting the bland chains. Va Bene is not brilliant - but it will do. By 8pm the place was cheerfully humming with few empty tables. Even so, service was friendly and very attentive, and the food arrived with astonishing speed. Main courses were very good... More
