“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

The place is quite small but theres a happy vibe and you can feel it and the staff  make you feel very welcome. The service is efficient and also very Welcoming.

The manager is a great guy and serves you personally. 

The quality and quantity of food you get for what you pay is amazing.
I highly, highly recommend it.

They will be seeing more of me in the future. :)

“Authentic, great service and excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We visit Villa Rosa, Paddington/Bayswater quite regularly and always choose the set menu @ £10.95 for 2 courses + choice of drink (alcoholic or non alcoholic) because it represents excellent value for money. The food served as a "homely" way about it and decent portions. If you choose the wine option from the set menu, you will not be served "vinegar" but a good quality house wine. The male owner is Italian, welcoming, clean and smart. (Just like his restaurant!!!) The waiting staff are good. The restaurant decor is quite pleasant with a rose theme, i.e. fresh red roses on the table. Linen tablecloths and napkins. All desserts are a reasonable £3.95. We prefer to eat here rather than the "high street", so called Italian chain restaurants.

“Tasty wee treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

Popped in for dinner on a business trip to London, I was greater by a friendly waiter, and spent the entire meal chatting to a very strange lady on the next table. I had the Caprese to start which was fine, nothing special, then had the Veal Milanese for main. The veal was extremely tasty, highly recommended. The whole meal was pleasant, tasty and good value. A lovely little Italian bistro.

“Good value basic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This is an excellent neighbourhood restaurant that serves consistently good food in an unpretentious setting. A group of us have eaten there several times recently and have finished the evening well satisfied and far from bankrupt.
