Lovely quaint and authentic restaurant. To be visited on lunchtime or early evening. Evening is typically busy so would recomend pre-booking if there is a crowd but you should be OK of there are just the two of you. Lunchtimes are a much more relaxed with time to enjoy the fantastic food and the wine. Staff are attentive and helpful and don't hassle you for orders or anything else. Definitely a place to recommend

Having been recommended to this Italian restaurant by friends, we were expecting something really good, however, our lunch meal was sadly disappointing. I have also looked at other reviews and it seems that the Vittoria is very inconsistent in its performance. Whether this is because different chefs are on duty I do not know, but the management certainly needs to look at this problem.

Our food was disappointing and somewhat tasteless and the service was slow and inadequate - I accept that at a weekend things were busy but other restaurants can cope so this one should.  It was possibly just "one of those bad days" and we all have them but some people obviously have had really good experiences at Vittoria's so cross your fingers if you go!
