“Lovely”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Having spent a lot of money on over priced Italians around the world this is a welcome surprise. Great food and quality, not to mention the wonderful atmosphere. I measure Italians on the Bolognaise and the bolognaise here is excellent so full marks there folks. Well done.

“We love this place!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have visited va bene a few time in the past 12 months and it has always been fantastic. Good service, great food. We have tried many dishes and never had a problem. It's a lovely little restaurant and definitely worth a visit!

“Lovely”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Lovely atmosphere, good service, good value food and very tasty too.

Their steaks are delicious. My husband was disappointed with the menu "specials" ordering them intentionally because they were recommended but thought there was nothing "wow" about them. (Ribs starter and I forget the exact main - salmon pasta which was a bit mean.)

“Needs update”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

OK.. We have been coming here for 5 years since we moved to glossop but less and less lately. Just the last few times we have felt the food is not really as good and we have both suffered upset tummies, which we just put down to bad luck. I think it is time this place had a major facelift the paper cloths need to go, the very stark bright lighting needs to go (what's wrong with candles and dim bulbs) it's too bright and not at all cosy and romantic, the owners need to go into some restaurants in town to see what is new and exciting and up their game a little. It needs decorating it needs new life it needs Italian staff, not severe scary people. It also needs the food updating its all a bit 70's, packets of cheap breadsticks? shame on you surely the chef could bake a few fresh breadsticks come on va bene pull your socks up make me want to come here every week.
