the villa

Italian food and atmosphere in the Ribble Valley.


The vision for The Villa was to bring to the Ribble Valley, fine Italian food served alongside dishes unique to the Mediterranean diet. Taking over what was a derelict shell in 2007 they wanted to re-create an authentic dining experience, reminiscent of a quaint Roman Piazza; a place where friends and strangers could sit and enjoy cichetti, pizza or pasta with a fruity Italian red.


Their beautiful terrace, dotted with fountains, takes on new life in warmer weather, with guests enjoying sharing platters in leisurely fashion. Their unique and wonderfully atmospheric wine bar plays host to intimate dinner parties or somewhere to just relax, before or after dinner, and sip a glass of prosecco. Their candlelit restaurant adds to your dining experience.


Alongside the updated menu is an extensive wine list featuring both Italian and New World wines, as well as a selection of spirits and proseccos. 


The Villa also has an intimate private room and relaxing bar area that comfortably seats up to 20 for any occasion.
