My wife, Susan, and I have been frequenting this jewel in the Crown for a number of years now, it is quite simply the best Italian that we go to. Very friendly owners, remember you and remember your favourite wine choices. But the Creme de la Creme is the SeaFood Spaghetti, cooked in Silver foil, I forget what it is... More

We had a wonderful meal here. We lived in Italy for a while and are familiar with the way they do pizza (it's true, in Italy you will not get chicken on your pizza) and were very pleased with this place. They had some of our very favourite wine, which we probably indulged in a little too much. They even... More

After a long day in a training session, I went for a short run and worked up an appetite. I had pizza on the mind and nothing else would do. Penrith is and odd little town but finding Villa Bianca was easy. I had run past it earlier and not noticed that it was a restaurant probably because 'hotel' follows... More

Nice food, you get lots for your money, but they did bring us the wrong drink twice and we had to wait a while.

Went to this restaurant at my daughters recommendation after she had visited for a friends birthday do Staff were quite surly and seemed unsure if they could fit us in despite only a few tables being filled. Once seated, my daughter was told she couldn't have a chicken and ham pizza as the chef didn't put chicken on pizza, I... More

Sullen, grudging service. Supermarket pizza would be more choice and better value. Be aware, chef has some bizarre rule about chicken pizza: it is not allowed! Hello Sainsbury's!

Ate here this evening while in the area for work as very few Italian restaurants appear to be in Penrith and really wanted pasta. The service was quick, food was delicious and well priced. If I was in the area again I would return.
