We do really love Villa Marina but our last experience was of such disappointment, leading me to delay writing a review. The wild boar Parma ham is fantastic. But my husband had prawns as a starter and they were those tasteless water filled prawns....exactly like an Iceland Prawn ring if you have ever had the misfortune of trying. I had... More

Having read such good reviews, I was probably more astonished than disappointed by our visit. The whole experience was like a throwback to British Italian restaurants in the 70's and 80's, which at least provided a humour factor First course was at best uninspiring in execution, no sign of culinary flare. Main course lamb shank was ok, pork was dry,... More

Wonderful restaurant. Discreet service,genuine welcome and fabulous food in a intimate atmosphere. We have eaten here at least 20 times over the years, many of the waiters have been there for many years and treat you like old friends. The lunchtime set menu is comprehensive and good value. I will not specify any items as every dish we or our... More

Staff here are awesome. Food was great with a huge desert trolley. Sadly the place felt a little dead. Maybe that's a fact of being in Henley. Well worth a visit though

Eat here quite regularly. Food is always good with a varied menu including lots of specials. Staff always seem genuinely pleased to see us and it's a good atmosphere in which to eat, busy without being too frenetic. Reasonable prices, good grappa and they still have a sweet trolley which my kids, albeit in their mid/late, 20s still love.

This is my first review of this restaurant and yet, my fifth visit. The service at Villa Marina is fabulous, and their attention to detail, exquisite. The menu and quality of the food on offer is simply sublime. If you intend visiting Henley on Thames then I sincerely suggest you book a table and enjoy everything they have to offer!

My family and I have been regular patrons of this excellent restaurant nearly all my life (30 years!) Nando and his attentive, outgoing team always make every visit special; the food, wine and service are always exceptional! I highly recommend this wonderful & authentic Italian restaurant.

We went on the off chance of a table being available in the week - our first visit. We were given a pleasant table and the food was good. The service was a bit slow and inattentive but the staff were pleasant but not terribly welcoming; however the food and the restaurant were good enough to overlook this. We will... More
