This is a traditional Italian restaurant in the heart of Henly. Good quality entrees - not your typical italian chain restaurant. We like it so much we are planning our rehearsal wedding dinner there.

We arrived early for the 12 O'clock booking as I had booked an earlier train from London to visit my Mum in Henley. The management very kindly let us in despite the fact they themselves were having a quick lunch before opening. They offered us drinks and we ordered coffees. When lunches officially started we ordered the management recommendation of... More

We ate here with our family on a Saturday night and the place was busy so pre booking is essential. We all enjoyed our food, my grandson said his was the best steak he had ever eaten, my swordfish was beautiful, the starters and deserts were also excellent, my eldest son actually had two deserts both of which he said...

Great atmosphere and good Italian cuisine (not pizza) Interesting selection of Italian wines. We had Sunday lunch which was very good value for three courses. Friendly Italian staff. We have eaten here on a regular basis and has always been good.

Pepe and Fernando along with the team do a superb job of looking after you. The extensive menu is excellent and pricing is very good indeed for the quality. The wine list is extensive and top value too. Ask Fernando for one of his off menu bottles and you won't be disappointed!! This place is so good I just never... More

Another thoroughly enjoyable lunch with family today at Villa Marina. Real Italian style in both decor and cooking with excellent staff and value for money. Delicious fantail sardines followed by veal escalope in a lovely cream sauce, with a good trifle from the sweet trolley, washed down with a good house white.
