Pre booked a table for a party of 8 to celebrate my Birthday as we had been meaning to visit for several months - we were not disappointed !
Food was top class, the whole party thoroughly enjoyed each course. Service was relaxed but still attentive and nothing too much trouble. Very refreshing not to see a pizza on the menu - if you want good quality genuine Italian food then look no further - We will be back - thanks to the Villa Romana team for a great night.

Went to Villa Romano for our 15th wedding anniversary. The service was exceptional and the food was fabulous! We had traditional Italian rice balls and a crab dish for our starters ... superb! Mains were duck breast and lamb shoulder ... both delicious and the lamb shoulder was huge, so much so I couldn't eat it all! I definitely recommend Villa Romano. Prices are well within what I would expect to pay for the quick of the food and service.

We booked in for my son's birthday on the Friday night. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately. It was clear the menu is flexible - meaning, you look at it, get an idea, if you like the item as described, order it. You won't be disappointed. However, if you struggle or would like changes, just ask. They are flexible and creative. Most importantly, the food is DELICIOUS! Not one bad item. They made a fuss of us and we so very much enjoyed our experience. In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we decided to celebrate a second night with 8 of us. They squeezed us in. We were not rushed. They listened to us, they met our needs. Again, not a bad meal or item was served. Everyone has such a great time. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. Can't wait to go back to Fareham!!!! Oh, and incredible value for the quality of the food and size of the portions. Go hungry. Go to sit and relax and enjoy each other. Perfect venue.

WOW - wanted to find an Italian restaurant whilst visiting friends and searched google for Fareham, the Villa Romana sounded good so my wife & I visited without a reservation. The place was already quite busy in the early evening but we were offered a table. We were immediately offered a drink but I had already perused the online wine list and chose a bottle from there - I was informed that they no longer had that wine but showed me a similar wine that I decided upon - what a superb choice - I now have another Italian favourite red wine!
The menu had good choices and we decided on a starter & main - the food was served soon after and was absolutely lovely. My wife left room for a sweet, while I decided to polish off bottle number 2 of our wine - again this was very tasty.
The service was very good and we were made very welcome - overall one of my favourite restaurants.
We will be back next time we are in the area!
