I love the atmosphere in Villa Italia, no matter what day of the week you go, it will always be buzzing. Maz and the team always make you feel special even when the restaurant is so busy. The food on the menu is inclusive of side dishes which again is not the normal in Belfast anymore. The menu has plenty... More

We absolutely love Villa Italia, we always visit when we come back to Northern Ireland. Our last trip, in August 2015, was particularly special- it was our wedding night and we invited our guests to Villa Italia for a relaxing evening meal. Before deciding to have our meal there, we contacted the owner Tony and he was very supportive- we... More

Vegetables very hard and tasteless, but the strangest thing was the fries were like chip shop chips?? (Am convinced they sent out for them!) Have been to this restaurant several times before and am usually very satisfied. Sadly a very disappointing experience this time.

Visited Villa Italia on Sunday the 17th. As we were a large party we all arrived at different times. We were kindly seated at the bar while we waited. Not long after being taken to our table our lovely waitress began taking our orders. All 25 of our party were delighted with both starters and mains. The lasagna was full... More

I visited here as part of a large group. We were situated in the "penthouse" upstairs, and our group was scattered over two tables. The service was a bit unhinged, with the first table getting served etc first, and the second table waiting for their food. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly, but they did not seem... More

The staff were constantly on the go, so the other floors... More

Visited once again recently. We are NEVER disappointed when eating in the BEST Italian restaurant in Belfast. The food & service is first class always. The training their staff receive shines with every visit. Congrats to the owner "Tony" who can be seen joking & chatting with staff & patrons old & new. The family atmosphere is very much present.
