From humble beginnings…
Our 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 some seven years ago, we 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.
Where we are today?
Over the years, we have refurbished more and more of The Villa. Our beautiful terrace, dotted with fountains, takes on new life in warmer weather, with guests enjoying olives and antipasto in leisurely fashion. Our 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. And our candlelit restaurant adds to your dining experience.
We’re excited for the future and look forward to sharing our plans for development at The Villa, to bring you the most enjoyable Italian restaurant in Clitheroe.
