Its nearly two years since we visited The Villa, with the same friends as we visited with tonight, on our last visit, my pizza was pretty abysmal, so I had hopes this time. We ordered rosemary garlic bread, which was delicious and then I and my friend ordered the garlic mushrooms, with a vegan dairyfree option for me, they were... More

En route into Clitheroe town centre we noticed this restaurant on the left with a convenient car park and decided to give it a try, and were not disappointed. The trendy layout and decor was very impressive and we were warmly welcomed and taken to a comfortable table where we ordered a pint of Peroni and a large glass of... More

Came to the villa a couple of years ago for the NYE meal and we couldn't fault it, so much effort had been put in. However, 2016 had gone downhill. The staff was unaware of the set menu that we had preordered, the atmosphere was dead and the entertainment was boring, it's a shame as we were really looking forward... More

14 of us dined at The Villa this evening The food was great but the night was made by the wonderful service received. We were in the basement and attended to in the main by a young gentleman and young lady. I believe the gentleman was called Dominic. Their enthusiasm and good humour really made them stand out- such great... More

Our favourite Italian in the Ribble Valley. Service is consistently brilliant and the attention to detail is second to none. The food is always excellent and on our previous visit we enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine with our meals. A lovely building with character and charm and it's a pleasure to visit..

Me and my partner attended on new years eve expecting the normal rush, but it was the opposite. The staff were very attentive, the food was beyond delicious and the price is very fair. The atmosphere is a great place to be any time of day. I would recommend to anyone.
