The Villa Whalley Road Clitheroe 21st April 2017

The Villa is an Italian restaurant on the outskirts of the market town of Clitheroe, offering Italian cuisine and Mediterranean dishes.   I have not been to The Villa for two years, when the pizza I had was absolutely awful, so not visited since, so hoped things had improved.

There is a large beautiful terrace to the rear, a perfect spot on a warm summer evening, to enjoy an Aperitivo, but sadly on my visit, the weather was not being kind.

I asked for the allergen list, which was quickly brought, although I think it needs updating, there were dishes on the menu, that were not included on it.

I ordered rosemary garlic bread, to share with the table, which was delicious, with loads of fresh rosemary on the top.

Next I asked if they could make garlic mushrooms, as a vegan option, made with olive oil, which they were more than happy to do, the mushrooms were really tasty, with loads of garlic.

Main course was a peperonata pizza, replacing the two cheeses with spinach and chillies.

The pizza was delicious, well cooked, plenty topping and tomato sauce, but not too much and although I did not manage to eat it all, I made a good attempt.

I ordered a Giovanni Puiatti Puiatinno Pinot Grigio white wine, to accompany my dinner, which was a vegan wine, I recognised on the list.

The front of house team, were only young, but did a great job, very professional and friendly, I would certainly revisit.
