The decor is a little austere and there are no windows other than at the front. The menu is two pages, which seemed fine to me, but nearby tables were complaining that it was short. The other clients were mostly retired, which may have been due to it being a weds in early Jan. The service was great and the... More

Party evening before Christmas. Super service on arrival but 3 or 5 main courses had to be returned to the kitchen. Alternatives provided but we therefore ended up eating at different times. Sweet trolley was old school and lovely. Being charged for bottled water without being asked was also old school and not in a good way. The service charge... More

A lovely Italian restaurant, not far from the high street. Delicious food, excellent service, nice atmosphere, and my mother's need for gluten free food was no trouble at all for the staff. Perfect for a special occasion. Grazie Mille!

There were plenty of staff who coped magnificently with a full restaurant of multi-corporate tables and couples. Parking problems must have disrupted their planning with guests arriving so late but all was dealt with calmly. Excellent food, wine and ambience - just allow an extra half hour at this time of year. Now I have re-discovered Villa d'Este, I look... More

We travel so much and love Italian so we always enjoy a great Italian meal - no matter where.....and this is a great Italian meal including Italian servers and Italian wine...yes. Do save room for the dessert cart. I did not but it looked great. We devoured the little tomato sauce treat with the bread - nice and spicy! Then... More
