“Good friendly service”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This authentic Italian restaurant is a little gem.
It serves good Italian food at reasonablish prices.
I think the specials board is especially worth looking at and we all enjoyed our fish choice.
The atmosphere is nice and you could easily forget that you are in a high street in Hampshire.

“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We are never disappointed when dining here. Attentive friendly service and good home prepared pasta dishes and especially their profiteroles which I have not found bettered.
Wide range of dishes for those not pasta inclined. Wine list fairly priced. The Valpolicella they stock is an enjoyable everyday wine which goes well with Italian dishes.

“Beautiful food & friendly people”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

3 of us looking for a meal out. Not too many customers so the service was excellent. Main courses and desserts . 2 Fillet steaks, beautifully cooked and presented and mussels for me. Desserts my daughter could not resist. A nice gals or two of wine. Just a "simple" Italian meal as it should be.

“An absolute must see and see again!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch today with my Mam and everything from start to finish was top notch, from friendly professional service to lovely surroundings, a wide selective menu choice for food and wine. It was hard to choose what to have as it all sounds so good but eventually went for the shoulder if lamb rigotoni with tomato and chilli and it was first class. Mam had the veal with truffle oil which I sampled and it was divine, the recommended wine choice was excellent and the honey grappa we had with our coffee rounded of a lovely meal. Thank you, we'll be back soon.

If you want an authentic Italian meal in a calm and friendly atmosphere you will do no better than booking a table at Villa Romana. Attention to detail and customer service are second to none - just like in Italy! Why not book a table and ENJOY!!
