“Amazing little Italian place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

I love Virginia's! I think that it is one of the best places in Aberdeen! I live in Rosemount area so I ve been there around 3 times, I went there for lunch and dinner. For lunch I had delizioso panini with dolce latte cheese and walnuts...mmmm... that was like heaven in my mouth! Definitely the best panini I have ever tried and I ve been to Italy! For dinner I had pasta with salmon and vodka,there was loads of sauce on my plate so I was really happy coz I like to dip pasta in creamy sauce. I highly recommend Salmon vodka pasta ! My bf had lasagne and it was nice too. I really like Virginia's because it is a small nice very Italian place with Mama cooking in the back. Highly recommended

“No kerb appeal... but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

If you are looking for a fancy trattoria with checked tableclothes then this isn't what you are looking for! It is quite tired and basic looking from the outside and the decor on the inside is too if I'm honest. It's like a wee cafe with only about 6 tables.....However....what you do get is a genuinely friendly guy serving you and absolutely fantastic authentic Italian food. We went in at lunchtime and had the Bruschetta, the melon in Parma Ham and the smoked salmon. All of them were yummy but the bruschetta was superb.

“I agree with all the wonderful 5 star reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We visit Virginia's every time we visit Aberdeen. Our daughter worked in Aberdeen for a year and a flatmate gave the food,Mama Chef and family an amazing recommendation. My daughter is allergic to alcohol and this is the only restaurant thay she will eat pasta with sauces as she has complete trust in the magnificent chef who cooks everything from scratch. Book a table tomorrow and you will go back again and again. In fact we are in Aberdeen soon and the Spaghetti Carbonara and the most delicious bread you have ever tasted will be my choice. R&A
P.S. the tiramasu is not to be missed - you can actually eat two portions in a day according to my husband!!

“Fantastico!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

I have had the pleasure of eating at Virginia's with my children for a brunch-the full breakfast cannot be beaten. My son declared the panini (made with home made bread) "the best ever.
I decided to organise a staff night out here. It seemed perfect-no town parking-and having the place to ourselves. There were 12 in our party-(2 vegetarians). It was indeed absolutely brilliant! Antonio and Mama Chef looked after us so well-the service was second to none. As for the food-well-like the service-it could not be faulted. 3 HUGE platters for starters-best bruschetta I've had!! Succulent chargrilled vegetables and so much ham and bread we had to get a doggy bag!! The main courses were every bit as good. Everyone at the table raved about the food. The desserts were (surprise surprise) Ab Fab. Our Christmas night out was perfect-thanks to the food, service and general ambience of this wee gem. A very big thank you to Antonio and Mama. We will definitely all be back soon!

“Neighborhood Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I lucked out by getting a suggestion from a local at the nearby antique store. This place is authentic Italian. I had the ravioli special and it was tasty and a real treat. Good prices. Local
Families came in, I will definitely go back.
