“Ok place to dine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Dined there twice on a recent business trip. Food was ok but priced a little on the high side for what it was (luckily my work pays for my meals). Not a huge amount of choice on the menu outside of pizza's.
Décor is a bit underwhelming; very informal & probably caters better for large groups. It can be a bit on the noisy side at times. It does offer Alfresco eating option.
Staff quite friendly & obliging.
Overall, just an OK place to dine. I will explore other restaurants on my next trip as a comparison. Would give it 2.5 out of 5.

“Always enjoyable”

Been dinning in at Marvilla's a number of times now and each time has always been quite enjoyable, the staff and food is always tasty and filling. Happy to go back for more quality service.

“Drinks prices an absolute rip off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We went into this restaurant last night with our two children, the meal was really quite nice, even though it took one hour to have it come to the table and it was not even busy. When we got the bill we could not believe it, kids lemonade $4.50 per glass! My glass of wine $14.50! It is not as if this restaurant is the Ritz it is quite plain and dated with average service, we would not return because of this rip off tactic, the meal was only $57 and the drinks were $50! Ridiculous.

“The Parmigianas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

What ever you do, don't bother paying $27 for the parmigiana, it is a small thin schnitzel piece with just sauce and mozzarella. I was so disappointed in the size and didn't taste that great either seeing as it costs so much! Also they don't split bills which is quite annoying. But other than those negatives, their food is actually quite nice but definitely over priced and everyone seemed to enjoy their meals
