I don't think people should be accused of being moaners just for stating their opinions, which is what this website is for - people can read all reviews before making their own mind up about a place after all. Personally, myself and my boyfriend were disappointed with our experience of this restaurant as we thought the standard of the food... More

Have eaten in Va Bene many times now. The staff are friendly and efficient. They work hard and are very attentive without being overbearing. The food is usually excellent. The menu doesn't seem to have changed for some time but what they do,they do well. The chicken and steak dishes all follow a similar format ..... Well cooked meat smothered... More

We've been going to Va Bene for a long time now and are never dissappointed with food or service. I think they serve the best steaks in England! Always a lovely charming atmosphere, whether they're busy or not. If you want consistent good food, then this is the place to go.

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
