“Crappy place at a great location”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Villa Romana has a very attractive outdoor seating by an old cobblestone square by the Fyris river in central Uppsala. If I was forced, I could go here again for a drink. With too few people in the staff service was the slowest I ever experienced. And when we were there approx. 25% of the seats were occupied, can't imagine what it would have been like if the place had been full. We waited to order, waited for the food, waited to order new drinks, waited to pay ... Stressed staff that was pleasant enough at the table, but rarely appeared there when you needed them. Food was ok but overprized pasta.

“Worst Italian restaurant ever!!!!!”
Reviewed December 13, 2009

First time in Uppsala, first time in this """italian""" restaurant, we decide to order simple things, because we know there are many fake italians restaurants all over the world: Lasagna and Spaghetti with polpette (meat balls).
Lasagna: No pasta and no besciamella inside!!!!!Unbelievable!!!Only meat with a bad sweet tomato sause and on top raw onions!!! Worst lasagna in my life in an "Italian" restaurant!!!
Spaghetti with polpette: The meat balls were to spicy, I couldn't eat one whole meat ball!!! The sauce was again to sweet and spicy!!! And for decoration....Bad decoration....lots of persil on top of the pasta!!
We had very bad dinner!!!!! Really fake Italian restaurant!!!
