A new independent Italian restaurant has recently opened its doors in Sunningdale, and customers are already giving it rave reviews. 

Vallegiata Bistro was opened two weeks ago by esteemed restaurant manager Efe Cadar and is situated on Chobham Road, Ascot. 

Speaking directly to The News, Mr Cadar said he has been overwhelmed with the positive feedback he had received despite only opening his doors two weeks prior.

"We had a soft opening so we did not expect things to blow up like this," he said. "So far we are so pleased with the reviews we get from the customers." 

The restaurant is open from 8 am to 10 pm each day and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

The cuisine is quintessentially traditional Italian, with popular dishes like spaghetti bolognaise, carbonara, and a wide selection of tasty pizzas. 

They also serve other dishes like sea bass, salmon, steaks and other forms of sea food and grilled meats. 

"We are open everyday. We are also family run, my cousin is the chef and he is really amazing and reliable," Mr Cadar continued. 

"The kitchen is good and solid. I used to run an Italian and Spanish restaurant in East London so we really know what we are doing here."

Mr Cadar explained that he had formerly opened a very successful independent in London, but had decided to move his business to Ascot. 

He had found it difficult working there as he felt he was working very long hours without much help, so took his whole team with him on his next venture. 

"I had too much on my shoulders you see," he said.

"I was working without days off and I just decided that I didn't want to do this anymore and I thought well I'm going to move my business somewhere else."

Mr Cadar said that he is very happy here in Sunningdale as the people are so friendly and welcoming. 

As soon as the restaurant opened they were already getting great reviews from those who had tried the food. "It's really encouraging," Mr Cadar said. 

One happy customer wrote the following on Google reviews: 

"Really excellent meal last night, great atmosphere and delicious food. I hope you get the success you deserve in your new venture."

In agreement with the previous comment, another person said "Popped in of Saturday morning and the coffee here is just next level! Barista came out to chat to us and he clearly knows his stuff."
