“Absolutely wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

So we went to Virgin Courtyard recently for a quiet family dinner outing and it was absolutely the right choice.

There is a marked improvement in the service and food from last time I went there a few months ago. Due to the humidity issues we decided to sit inside this time where it was comfortably cool and the place also had more diners there this time than the last time I went there.We were on the safer side as we had reservations as people coming 30-40 minutes later had to wait for a table.

The service this time was impeccable. The servers were as well informed as they should be and were also nice.

I did not really find the dining table type chair too comfortable though. The back was a little too stiff for me.

They started with the traditional Italian Bread with Olive oil an vinegar which all of us really enjoy. The Tomato Bruschetta and Chicken stuffed with olives with honey chilli sauce was absolutely wonderful too.

For the main course we had ravioli, chicken stew and their pepperoni, salami and ham pizza from the weekend menu and the star of the night was definitely the Pizza!!

We also licked clean the dessert which we also chose from the weekend menu.

It was actually a perfect evening. Then it was ruined by some rude diners who were waiting for 5 minutes or so and the moment they saw that we had asked for a cheque they literally came to our table and started sitting down! I mean how rude is that??!! That left a bitter taste in the mouth and we gave a piece of our mind to the manager on our way out about not handling the waiting customers well enough (though it wasn't all his fault as they kind of snaked around him).

Other than the silly incident caused by other people, it was an absolutely wonderful evening with the family and I again recommend this place as they have actually improved from good to even better!!

“Fantabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

When ever you get to know about a new place claiming to serve "good italian" food.. you have your reservations.. We went to this place with least expectations but we were really pleased to be at this place..

Ambiance (10/10) - the white does the magic and the rustic look nothing overboard.. all blends well
Staff (10/10) - polite and respectful plus more important had knowledge about the food served in the restaurant.
Food (10/10) - i not a avid veg eater but loved the veg stuff we ordered.. the veg lasagna was too good so was the wood fire pizza plus the garlic bread.. even my 4 year old loved it.
Price (10/10) - meal for 3 with 2 starters and 1 veg lasagna & pizza it was Rs 1446.. including taxes .. you kidding me.... reasonable from the other ones we have been to.

Definitely going back...

“Overpriced average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

It is a restaurant where you get Italian food only. Reaching here is a bit tough considering it is situated on the backyard of SCO 1, sector 7.Ambience insides is mediocre. Sitting arrangement in the courtyard is very likeable but in summer you would prefer to dine in the dining hall. Food is average. We ordered rissoto, ceaser salad and a chicken italian dish (do not rembee the name). Rissoto was below average and ceaser salad was average.the saving grace wasthe chicken dish which was really delicious. Drink ----three layered baman special was crap and mocha frappe was good.Desert---blueberry cheesecake was ok. We sat outside in the courtyard and reading the menu in candle light was a real pain in the neck.
