“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is a very popular little resturant right by Prenton Park football ground. The staff are friendly and helpful and always seem cheerful. They never rush you and are polite. The menu is vast with all the typical Italian favourites . They do delicious garlic bread pizzas which we always have . They have a specials board and use local suppliers . The best bit for my sweet tooth is the dessert trolley! I can't get enough of their tiramisu or white chocolate profiteroles !

“Main Meal disappointment!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Third visit. This time midweek as we thought it may be a lot quieter than weekends. Weekends normally hectic and staff can’t wait to clear plates from tables once customers have just cleared theirs! Ordered same main meal as previously – duck a’orange. When ordering waiter asked if side dishes were required, which I didn’t. When meal arrived was surprised to find only duck on plate and no vegetables/ potatoes as on previous visits. Queried with waiter who informed me he had asked what side dishes I required, I presumed he meant in addition to vegetables/potatoes that I expected to have on my plate. Waited further to commence meal whilst kitchen staff prepared vegetables//potatoes. Having dined in restaurants in this country and abroad have always had potatoes/vegetables included. Very disappointed!

“not what you wanna see on a night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

i have been going to villa venezia for quite some years now, food is always excellent and the staff are always very friendly. however, the last few visits to the italian restaurant have been quite displeasing, i do not go out for a meal to sit there and watch a young waiter ramming his tongue down a girls throat while i am trying to eat, it has happened the last couple of times that i have been and it is quite off putting,
i know it is only a trivial matter, but i am not happy with it, therefore, i shall not be returning to the restaurant again.
also,i was not the only person to pass comment about it, i think a few other guests found it quite off putting

“Wouldnt go again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The menu was a bit unexciting. The food was mediocre and the staff looked as if they would rather be somewhere else.
