testimonial I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Veerle and Jag for the fabulous 40th birthday which I celebrated with 75 friends and family on the 19th November 2011 at Va Bene. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff at the Italian restaurant in Hagley and they made sure that I  celebrated in style!

We had  organised a menu with specific preferences being chosen beforehand to ensure that the service on the night went smoothly, which it did. So many of my guests commented on the excellent quality of the food and welcoming, helpful attitude of the staff and many have returned since. The organisation of the whole evening was second to none. The staff were discreet yet attentive which  meant that much of the stress was taken away from me and I could just enjoy the night.

I would definitely recommend Va Bene if you are looking for a venue for a special occasion or just for a quiet meal out. We are regular visitors and I can honestly say that we have never had a bad experience there!! testimonial

 We had a ruby wedding anniversary party for 40 people at Va Bene on the afternoon of 16th July 2011.

We had the restaurant exclusively for our use. We had arranged a large menu at a pre set price with drinks and made several personal choices which were accommodated with no problems. The room was fully decorated & arranged to our design and nothing was too much trouble for Veerle & Jag to arrange. The food, drinks, service and informality at the party was fantastic and all our guests commented on the high standard.

We would thoroughly recommend Va Bene for a private function and you will not be disappointed.

 I just wanted to say a big 'Thank You' for a great night at Va Bene's last night. I came for my birthday with 13 of my friends and everything about the place was fantastic.

The food was gorgeous, the place had such a good atmosphere and the service we received was first class. I would also like to say thanks for somehow knowing (even though I had not mentioned it to you) that it was my birthday and presenting my cheesecake with a birthday candle in it and better still I was told my dessert was free as it was my birthday- not many places would do that.

I will definitely be coming again and will be recommending you to my friends just as Vabene's was recommended to me.

Many Thanks

 To all at Va Bene...I just wanted to take a little time to thank everyone on Saturday night for a lovely meal and evening. We had actually booked in to Locanta in the Jewellery quarter in Birmingham for my Birthday. Although we had booked there was no table for us when we arrived and having tried to squeeze us into a corner by a storeroom, left us waiting for 20 mins with not even an offer of a drinks order let alone a food order. We left, surprise surprise, having expressed our feelings.

I called yourselves and came down to a lovely warm reception from all members of your staff and then asked which table we preferred. We were given plenty of time to choose from the excellent range of dishes you offer and promptly served with our wine in a friendly and professional manner.

The Starters were fantastic, the Salad with Feta & Olives being a generous portion and very fresh, my artichoke hearts we very tasty and piping hot, something I find increasingly rare these days.

Your suggestions for my partners main course to have the spaghetti instead of the potatoes with Misto pesce al pomodore was a delight, especially as it was not a option on the menu.

The whole evening went from what started off as a complete disaster to a most enjoyable night and I would like to thank you all so much. My only wish would be that there were a few more customers there as you deserve to do well with the restaurant. Even being the last people there we did not feel any pressure to rush and we relaxed after the meal to finished our wine.

We have eaten with you on a number of occasions. At no time have I ever had the slightest cause to complain or find fault.

Again our thanks for your efforts, they did not go unnoticed and people are far to quick to criticize but rare to congratulate. Please feel free to use any or all of this on your website or for adverts. 

Regards, Paul Taylor
