We went for lunch to celebrate our anniversary, although we were a large.group we were made to feel very special and the food and service was excellent. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience and a big thank you to Frankie for his exceptional attention to detail.

If you want to eat real South Italian food, go in villa d'este.
Staff very friendly and warm, food well presented and tasteful!!
The Head chef is very funny and social and willing to make a good customer service, making so, an amazing dining experience.
Best service goes to The Manager who is Italian too, making also a friendly and formal environment in the same time.
Definetely a place to go again an again.

When we arrived I was a bit annoyed because I’d asked my husband to book the Ivy Marlow garden and he’d left it too late!

Villa D’Este was absolutely gorgeous and the service attentive (without being intrusive). At first glance I wasn’t overly impressed with the menu, when I heard the specials that changed! I had calamari and beef stroganoff, hubby had prawns and rabbit; all perfect.

Food was really delicious, restaurant was really busy so we waited about 45 mins for our starter; we weren’t in a hurry so that was fine. Wine was good, food was fabulous and the desert trolly absolute heaven!!

All in all I’m kind of glad my husband wasn’t organised as we had a really fabulous night at Villa D’Este.

Family Sunday lunch with all generations in attendance. Everyone totally satisfied and very impressed. The staff were incredibly welcoming, cheerful, efficient and kind. After drinks on the welcome sofas, we went to our (white tablecloth covered) table in the airy and light dining area. Starters - all delicious: goat's cheese salad, chicken livers, asparagus (especially prepared upon our request). Mains - very tasty: rabbit, piquant chicken, lamb shank and sea bass. Dessert trolley - incredible choice. (Who doesn't love a dessert trolley? There should be more of them!) We chose tiramisu and mini vanilla horns - dreamy. Five people, 3 courses, 4 alcoholic drinks, 3 coffees - £140 including service. What's not to like? Hugely recommended.
