We regularly eat here as a family and I love it. The food is amazing. Good, home cooked food that delivers on taste. However, I think the main thing I have to comment on is the staff. They are EXEMPLARY. The politest, most accommodating staff. I absolutely love how respectful the waiters and waitresses. They are a credit to the... More

We were invited here for a birthday - there was around 20 of us. The place isn't all that big but we were seated together and the food was very nice, it also came out very quickly. I have to add that the chidren's meals are as big as the adults! lol. Was very nice.

Visited today for dinner, service was immediately slow but not a major issue as we was in no rush. Ordered the roasted vegetable salad for main. Arrived with freezing cold unroasted vegetables which I presume had been pre cooked and put in the fridge. Very very disappointed, I politely told the waitress but she just shrugged and said 'sorry' before... More

Went here last Friday before the cinema at festival leisure. Hadn't booked but looked nice when we parked and got a table no problem. Went for the classic pizza as the oven looked great when we walked in. Olives, starters a bottle of house red and pizza and pasta all for £50 with the 20% you get off food with... More

Ordered the Fruiti del Mare risotto when it arrived it looked cheesy so asked the waiter who said yes and proceeded to show me it says that on the menu, which it didn't! Had a seafood pasta instead. Perfectly edible. Toilets clean. Not much else to say apart from staff are very polite

Happened to find this place at Festival Leisure, we were planning to go to the mexican but had a quick look at the menu for Villagio and had to come in after seeing they do my favourite dish at Zizzis - I had literally just said seconds before how there are no Zizzis in our part of Essex and it...
