We love this place, the food is excellent, very friendly staff and the service is spot on. We eat here a couple of times a month and would highly recommend a visit.

Just had another excellent meal. service, food and ambience always spot on, staff always willing to please. Could eat there every night and always find something different, don't know how anyone could fault this family run independent restaurant. All round value for money, especially Monday to Wednesday with their set menu.

We have used this restaurant for many years and it was always excellent. However they opened another restaurant a few years ago and Va Bene dropped off. I am pleased to say that it is now excellent again. Great choice of excellent food, good wine and excellent service.Long may it continue

Surprisingly, he was defensive and on no occasion over a number of visits did he offer an apology. Instead he gave excuses and made us feel very uncomfortable. Such as shame as there... More

Dear Michael, Thank you for taking the time to write about Va bene. Your lovely comments are much appreciated. In reference of the wine, due to continued increases by our suppliers, we do not have much choice as to charge those prices. However we appreciate all feedback and are looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you for your custom. More
