“One of the best in Perth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been coming here for the past 18 years, but hadn't been for about two years as we had been away a lot.

I had the business lunch with a friend. The food and service was excellent. The great thing is how consistent it has been over the years.

The price of $35 for an entree, main course and dessert is excellent value for a top restaurant.

All round, Villa D'este is a great experience.

“Our fabulous voucher dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I read reviews on tripadvisor prior to going to this restaurant and would like to share our excellent dining experience. We arrived just after 6:30 and were the second table to be seated. We handed in our voucher and were shown to our table with the food menu and wine list. We were asked almost immediately did we want water and we asked for tap water and it was poured out of a glass jug and was cold. Whilst we were deciding on food and drink a waiter passing dropped of 2 small "buns" ( a dough like cake - very tasty) at no charge. We had 3 courses, a glass of wine and a lemon lime and bitters ( total drinks cost just under $20). The attitude of all 3 staff that served us was excellent and very professional, even when I queried what we were able to select on our voucher dining. The food of all 3 courses were excellent, well prepared and presented and above all a good size and most tasty. Though out the evening our water glasses were topped up when ever a waiter noticed one was below 1/2 full. I would be happy to go back anytime ( with a voucher) or pay full price for a very special occasion.

“A lovely evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

A wonderfully relaxed evening of fine wine and beautiful food. The service was discreet and not pushy and we had time to eat and enjoy. The restaurant was busy but our food was still served well. It was nice not to feel rushed as many restaurants these days seem to try and double fill their tables so one is just given a 2 hour slot. Not here.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

A friend had recommended this restaurant as the best Italian in Perth. We were disappointed . We arrived at 6-25 pm for a 6-30 pm booking and the entrance gate was locked so we had to stand in the rain waiting for it to be opened. Once seated we ordered two glasses of Prosecco --only to be told they don't have Prosecco--there was no sparkling wine by the glass but we were told we could get a piccolo of German sparkling wine !!! Never been to a half decent Italian restaurant which does not offer prosecco!! My wife ordered a glass of Sav Blanc--but was brought a glass of Semillion-- the waiter admitted it was his fault and blamed his poor command of English --a problem that would have been avoided had he bought the bottle to the table to pour-- but no the waiter said they don't do that in this restaurant ! I had been looking forward to ordering a risotto for main ( which all Italian restaurants have)--but not this one! I could go on but let's just say we were disappointed and won't be recommending it or coming back.

“Not cheap but the food is great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

Was taken here for a business dinner in private room. I can only say positive things as the menu, choice, food quality and the wine were all excellent. The service was also attentive but not pushy. However, waiter did get a couple of dishes wrong but there was a large group of us and that wasn't a problem and soon put right. I will definitely eat here again when in town. Perfect for a special occasion or a good business meal.
