Finally Italian food lovers have an eating place that comes close to being authentic. Stepping into the restaurant is a bit like stepping into Italy!! 

Regina Margherita is owned and operated by an Italian lady and her Sri Lankan husband. The Restaurant has an Italian Chef in charge of the kitchen. The food is outstanding and the service, led by the very friendly owners, is even better. 

The 70 odd seat Restaurant is air-conditioned, very spacious and comfortable and has the feel of a typically busy and noisy Italian Restaurant. It seems to get filled up each night and is frequented by locals and expatriates. Making a reservation before getting there is recommended.  

The menu features a superb collection of pizzas and pasta dishes. Something special about Regina Margherita is that, if at all possible, they would accommodate diners’ requests for dishes not featured on the menu. They serve the usual Italian starters such as La Caprese, Prosciutto and Melon and Antipasto. A few other main dishes based on steak, prawn, chicken and veal is also on offer. Missing are fish and calamari based dishes.  

Whilst the usual selection of coffees are available the desserts, which includes the perennial favourite, Tiramisu, are nothing much to write home about. There is a fairly good collection of wines on offer as well as beer (not much choice). No hard liquor is served. A bottle of wine is priced at $25 and above. The house wine is quite good.

    Eating Out

    We love our food, we love to cook and we eat out a lot. We have travelled a great deal (at last count more than 50 countries) and we always indulge in eating out very frequently when we are on the road.  

    This page is our (my wife and myself) effort to give you the benefit of our opinion of as many Eating Out locations in Sri Lanka as possible. We have eaten at least 2 times in each of the restaraunts reviewed.
    We have rated all locations on Quality of Food, Service and Ambience. Each location has also been given an Overall Rating. A scale of 1 to 5 has been used, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent.  
    Pricing estimates are based on each person having 2 courses (out of starter, main meal and dessert) as well as a soft drink. Liquor and coffee prices are excluded. Pricing is categorised as follows:
    Inexpensive: Up to $12 p.p.Moderate: $12 to $25 p.p.Expensive: $25 to $35 p.p.
    Very Expensive:  Above $35 p.p.

    The above does not include taxes (12% at present) and service charges (usually 10%).
    Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think by clicking on comments.

    Happy Eating!!
