What do I look for in a restaurant in order of importance?
Good food of course but that is no good without the following
Comfortable seats, and my pet hate, tables that don't wobble. Full marks here �
Tables spaced sufficiently so you don't feel cramped or overheard �
Subdued lighting with no glare �
Carpet flooring for the acoustics. It just seems to deaden excessive noise levels that spoil the experience otherwise. �
Some decent wine. The wine is pricey here but the table wine we had was equivalent to the higher priced wine in other Italian restaurants. So I was very happy with that choice here �
Attentive service was always very much in evidence �
Waiting time for food �
Waiters that want to serve you and show an interest with a little bit of banter �
Ticked all the boxes here and enjoyable experience. I just wish it were nearer to me we were 'out of towners'.
Went in for a beautiful dinner with my family tonight. We were served graciously by the wonderful Franco, for me, a true gentlemen with a soft approach and wonderful sense of humour. I had the grilled dover sole. I asked Franco to serve it with a lemon, butter and garlic sauce, vegetables and potatoes. The starter was a very fresh avocado with prawns and salmon garnish. Dessert was icecream. We have been here before and the ambience and service is always perfect. My tip is talk to the staff, build a rapport and ask them for whatever you want! They really appreciate that. Thank you for tonight Cassa Nova!
Thank you so much for a wonderful Sunday lunch on the 13th September 2020. It was a very special friend's special birthday and we wanted to discretely share it with her. It was wonderful, the food, the service, the ambience could not be faulted and the relaxed atmosphere was the best. My friend said that she has eaten in a lot of Michelin starred restaurants but the Casa Nova tops them all. Thank you all for making this a most memorable lunch that my friend will never forget.
We visited The Virginia Water Lake and at first we had a lunch in this restaurant.All the measures was taken against Covid-19 .
We ordered a dish what wasn't included in the menu and they were really helpful to complete our request.
All dishes were delicious,copious and fast served.
All the staff were helpful,friendly and polite.
I recommend this restaurant.
