In a rubbish area of Basildon we all call Bas Vegas full of people from The Only Way is Essex this restauarant is quite good.
The pizzas are made on site so you can add things to them which is quite good and they do deals at lunch time.
Better than Pizza Hut and the other multi nationals, on a par with Pizza Express and about similar prices. Worth a visit.

Have actually eaten here a couple of times in the last month. On both occasions the menu choice and food quality was good. Prices are perhaps slightly high but not over the top. Service was ok and was able to step up when we needed a quick meal due to a cinema trip. Atmosphere is ok if a little clinical with lighting perhaps a shade too bright. Compared to other chains this outlet is one you will revisit.

My wife and I chanced our luck after a visit to the cinema and hoped they had a spare table !
The manager welcomed us in and said if we didn't mind waiting 15 mins he would have a table ready.
This he did and seated us on a nice table.
We really enjoyed our meal which was cooked lovely and served up quickly and efficiently.
Our waitress was a lovely girl called Rachel who was attentive helpful and thoroughly charming, if Villagio have an employee of the month award she deserves it.
Thank you for a nice meal.

A perfect little place within the festival leisure park.

For a night of food and cinema its perfect and much better than the usual Nando's, F&B, Pizza Express etc.
Front of house manager is a bit scruffy, they couldn't find our online booking, food was seasoned to the max but all in - very nice and great before we went to the cinema.
Clean, bright, well lit and good atmosphere.
Menu was pretty average but acceptable.

Ate here on a Saturday night before going to the cinema. I'm glad I booked as lots of people were being turned away. The menu was superb with specials being offered as well. We had the Bread Board to share, Seabass Fillet and the Lamb steak plus a bottle of red and our bill was only £6 more than the previous week at Frankie and Bennys. The staff were very professional and attentive. Could not fault our experience at this Ristorante and will definitely be visiting again.
