Went to this restaurant because of reviews on trip advisor ,wish we hadn't of bothered . We booked over the phone and as soon as we arrived we wished we hadn't we were too polite to walk out so we waited to be seated right by the open door almost in the street , we were given seats right by a huge plant which was hanging on my husbands shoulder all night. The lady proprietress was very friendly that was the only positive of the night. Antiquated furniture cheap old crockery outdated decor small and pokey restaurant. Food was passable but you could do the same at home nothing like authentic Italian . You have to pay extra for potatoes and veg . Ordered a coke which came out of a 2lt plastic bottle and was flat. Very disappointing waste of hard earned money . If u r not fussy and want to wast money then it's a must visit !!!

Walking into this restaurant is like going back to the 80's. However it is very comfortable and very friendly.

There were 7 of us all having something different and after sampling what each other had on their plates we can say that the food is absolutely delicious, some of the best italian food we have ever eaten. It is not the cheapest restaurant but neither the most expensive but when your food tastes this good you don't mind paying for it.

The portion sizes were huge, none of our group actually managed to finish their main meal.

We would definitely visit here again if in Newbury and would recommend to anyone. We got the impression that this is a family run restaurant and they were all very friendly.

Nice Italian restaurant with friendly owners (didn't mind us turning up in t-shirt and shorts). A little surprised there was no pizza on the menu and was concerned this may be a problem for my fussy brother but they had plenty of pasta and steak choices so it all worked out well in the end.

Took my daughter to dinner in mid June. When I am in Newbury I often take her to Val D Oro. As usual the welcome was wonderful. On this occasion the owners daughter was running the show. They have a good variety of pastas, steaks, fish and traditional Italian dishes. They have a whole Dover sole which is great. In fact their sea bass is also excellent and my daughter vouches for their steaks. Their wine list is pretty good. Ladies get a rose when leaving, a nice touch
