“So bad it was farcical”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We have visited Mallorca for 12 years and received so many recommendations for this restaurant so with our daughter a little older now, we booked for lunch with great anticipation. Disappointingly things got off to a bad start straight away- no- one around to meet and greet so we wandered through the crowded restaurant before coming across a harassed waiter who eventually found a colleague to show us to a table. Our table had a great view but we were squashed in like sardines on the terrace. Service was chaotic and disorganised with no attention to detail. Menus were printed on a dirty old piece of A4 paper which looked like it had been previously screwed up and flattened out. Despite all this, The biggest negative was the terrible food. Overpowering seafood sauce with prawns masquerading as langoustines, basic battered cod with an under boiled single potato and mushy veg accompanied by a truly awful piquant pepper sauce. Wine list was quite good but overall this was a really poor dining experience and one we won't be repeating. We've dined at Trespais in the port this holiday and it beats Villa Italia hands down in every area.

“Avoid this restaurant”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We had the worst experience possible with this restaurant. We had booked a table for my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration for 11 people several month in advance. When they went to agree the menu the day before they were told that only a very bad table with no view was available. In addition, the staff was extremely unfreindly so my parents decided to cancel the reservation and we reserved a table at El Patio in stead. That was the best decision we could have made.

“sunny sunday lunch”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We stayed at Villa Italia last year but hadn't had the Sunday lunch. So we went with friends this time as I thought they'd love the setting - which they did. The E29 lunch offers lots of choice and the ambience is enhanced by very good live music. Judging by the way the staff and customers were greeting one another I think the restaurant must get a lot of repeat business from villa owners and the yachting fraternity. Booking in advance a must to be sure of a table, especially if you are going as a group..

“never fails to impress”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

returned from our annual 3 weeks in the port and had 4 meals( one sunday lunch) in my favourite restraunt . spot on as usual . anyone i,m sure couldn,t fail to be impressed. do check on weddings as they can take over a wee bit ( especially my fellow brits! sadly). Alfonso and his team are great. in the port Porto Bello and Tim,s bar are super as well.
