When it comes to style, Italians lead the world

The portico at Villa Romana is well-lit and almost as inviting as the tables on the pavement with their blazing gas heaters.

There are 22 pasta dishes on offer, as well as a hearty selection of original pizza recipes. Two dishes stand out as original takes on meals normally overlooked because of their ubiquity. Good old roast duck is resuscitated in an amaretto and plum sauce, while the Camembert cheese chicken breast, stuffed with that mild, soft wonder is accentuated by a cream and herb sauce and baby spinach.

The specials board always bears surprises, such as twice cooked crumbed lamb's brains on rocket, which by the way rule number 238 of first dates says that you should not order this under any circumstances. The lobster linguini on the other hand, the aristocracy of pasta, should suffice just fine.

In a menu with most of the usual Italian staples, Villa Romana keeps things interesting enough with their mains and specials to ensure that you always look forward to your next visit.
