“No way!!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

We waited for a while to get served, we finally ordered our drinks and entries, our entries were not nice at all. The drinks were okay. Our mains took forever though. Disappointed because I love Italian food but this place was slow with service, a staff member was lost and nobody helped her and we were sitting there for about 20mins for our food which tasted bad.
Sorry

“Don't bother”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Bad experience. Lousy service. People actually left because they were tired of waiting for someone to take their order. Lousy food. The entree was brought out at the same time as our main meals. Dishes and drinks were dumped on our table. One waitress complained to us about another staff member. The oysters were served on alfoil. Not appealing. The pasta was swimming in sauce. Yuck. The pizza was nothing special. Don't waste your time or money on this place.

“Average service but decent food”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Villa Tango doesn't look like much and the service is pretty average, but our meals were quite good - if a little inconsistent. My partner loved his steak, chips and salad, and the pastas we spotted other diners eating looked great. The restaurant also does freshly made pizzas for eat in or take away, and these seemed a popular choice for many.

My meal, on the other hand, had some great components, but was on the whole a bit average. While my steak was overdone and tough, the Morton Bay bugs accompanying it were perfect and served in a lovely white wine and cream sauce. I enjoyed the sauce - very flavoursome - but there was too much of it and my steak was drowning in it. The vegetables were also a bit of a downer, unfortunately - very mushy and seemed suspiciously like overcooked frozen vegetables.

I think Villa Tango is still worth a try - really, those pizzas were selling pretty quickly - but perhaps not the best place for steak?

“Not quite as bad as some reviews ”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Read previous reviews and was naturally quite suspect. Had just four main courses..Three pasta dishes and one chicken parmigiano..All three pasta dishes where drowned in sauce particularly the ravioli. The chicken parmigiano looked good when it arrived, but as it turned out a very thin slice of chicken had been covered with four large slices of eggplant. .not impressed!

Probably wouldn't go back, but then where do you go for an affordable family meal in Caloundra?
