Villa Rosa is a bit of a hidden gem. The take away coffee is much better (and cheaper) than the Cafe Nero across the road; and the Italian atmosphere comes from the fact it's owned and run by an Italian family: not the fake-Italian kitch in Cafe Nero. Lovely rear courtyard garden and cosy tables. Limited range of homemade food... More

We have fallen in love with this place, which serves consistently excellent food across the spectrum of Italian cuisine, and by absolutely charming owner Rosa and her delightful staff.

I think this restaurant/cafe is very much a local institution, you see many of the same faces each time. Not surprising really as the coffee and cakes/pastries are excellent and very good value. The young staff are always pleasant and efficient and the place is overseen by "Rosa" who I'm sure keeps an eye on the efficient running of the... More

From the outside Villa Rosa and Leonardo Caffe look like separate entities but inside they are all one. There is also a lovely garden area at the back which must be great in summer. We were just having a coffee and a scone, both of which were very good.

This place is a local institution. Great place to go for a coffee and sit in the garden - weather permitting! The sandwiches here are amazing - made to order in your choice of bread, eat in or take out. Great friendly service too.

Villa Rosa was recommended as a place for a good authentic cappuccino...(just like home--Italy) We went there for coffee, had a great time talking with "Mamma Rosa", and stayed for a light lunch...many regulars make this their coffee bar of choice--ignoring the Costa and Caffe Nero chains--and I can see why...the restaurant is larger than it originally seems..on a nice...

This cafe is much liked by locals, and the same people can be seen almost every day. The young waitresses are delightful. However, it's been going a long time and some refurbishment would be welcome. Lighting is poor, and often lightbulbs are not working. There is no heating even in the midst of winter. It could do with a paint... More

I often stop at Villa Rosa (Known locally as "Rosa's", the name of the owner) for an espresso and a croissant, which are very good. Today I had lunch there: a baguette with a prawn salad and an espresso. The coffee, as always, was good; the baguette was fresh and the prawn, mayonnaise salad was excellent and freshly made. I...
