Typical italian. Pizza pasta. Chicken. beef. Fish dishes. Calamari starter slightly overcooked probably due to oil being not quite hot enough Garlic prawn starter. Prawns slightly over done. (Quite shrunken and a bit chewy) Sea bass off the special menu was excellent. Aspargus side was cooked just right. But asparagus a bit stringy probably due to the end of season... More

We have only recently started to go to Va Bene. Good freshly prepared food with a lovely ambience. Can be a bit noisy at times , however the staff will suggest quieter parts of the restaurant if you don't want the noise. People MUST be enjoying it or else they wouldn't choose to have their parties there.

Always come here, we always have filietto beef, but we change it from the white sauce to the tomato sauce and have it with tagliatelle pasta, we have to tell them to go easy on the chillies! but always absolutely beautiful, garlic bread is amazing here! as is the tiramisu! recommended, best Italian for miles!

Not sure what to make of va bene. We ate there on a Tuesday night, when it was quite busy. The staff are friendly but service was on the slow side. One of us ate from the mid-week fixed price menu which is good value for money. I thought the lemon sole goujons were a touch over-cooked, but the main... More

Thank you for your review, However I would just like to clarify a few things, the lemon goujons are usually served nice and crispy as to ensure that they are piping hot throughout. We have introduced them back on the menu due to popular demand and they are our best seller starter on our 12.95 set menu, however if you... More

Had a really fabulous meal with my partner on a very miserable Bank Holiday Monday. Service, food, wine & staff were all excellent. Lovely atmosphere. Excellent menu, it was very difficult to choose. Only my second visit, but will be returning soon.

Went with the family last night for a celebratory meal - great food, great service, and a lovely atmosphere. Have been several times and I have never been disappointed.
