Ventnor Pizza, Pasta and Fine Food Delivery: The Rex Piano Bar

After the success of their pizza delivery service, the Rex Piano Bar is expanding the available menu and the area they deliver to.

We were really pleased when new Head Chef, James Torin Moore got in touch to ask for VBs help to promote Abdel Kaissam’s new delivery service. This article is part of what we’re doing for them.

The Rex Piano Bar started a trial two weeks ago to deliver quality pizza to Ventnor and the surrounding area.

Ventnor Pizza, Pasta and Fine Food Delivery: The Rex Piano BarWe popped in there at the end of last week and chatted to the owner Abdel Kaissam and head chef, James about the trial.

They tell us that it’s been such a success, not only are they going to continue it, but they’re expanding it in two ways.

Menu expanded
Beyond the pasta and pizza that they deliver, the Rex are making many of the dishes from their menu main available for delivery as well.

The list is comprehensive, including starters (eg Chilli Squid), main courses (eg Sirloin Steak With Bois Boudrin) and deserts (Apple and Cinnamon Crêpe).

Delivery area increased
If you live around Ventnor and have felt excluded from delivery, your concerns may have come to an end as the delivery area has been expanded to include Bonchurch, St Lawrence, Whitwell, Niton and even Chale.

Their timing couldn’t be much better. With the weather making moves to close in, what better idea than to stay at home by the wood-burner, eat delicious food without having to worry about making it, simply by lifting the phone handset?

Last week we sampled the Rex thin crust, 10″ pizzas – specifically the Beefy Beast (Steak, red onion and mushroom) and Seafood Medley (Tuna, shrimp, salmon and olives) – and found them to be delicious.

Not only were they well-presented, but were really tasty and filling, with two pizzas and a mixed salad easily able to satisfy three adults, making it good value at £9.95 each for a pizzas.

We had the additional benefit of eating them in the blazing sun outside at The Rex Piano Bar, over-looking the beauty of Ventnor.

After eating them, we agreed that they were the best pizzas that we’d eaten in Ventnor (by no means influenced by us being paid to write this).

It’s not just us that found the food good. Miss Robson, of East Street, Ventnor had ordered a pizza for delivery recently converting her into a fan, “I really enjoyed it and I’m planning on making a weekly thing.”

Mr Ramjet of Upper Ventnor had high praise for the pasta and pizza
he’d ordered, “They were so good, I’m going to book in at the restaurant.”

Looks good – have never eaten there before, but might give the delivery service a go.


Love the idea of something other than Indian or Chinese as a take away. Hope to give this a go at the beginning of next month (after pay day)!


The food looks good and I must give it a try. One point I would like to make is that this article is advertising not a review of the premises and as such I think this should be reflected in the title rather than just being mentioned in the text.


Spider, if you look at the bottom of every article they are categorised by what they are to do with or related to. Posts similar to this have always in my memory of reading had ‘Sponsored Feature’ listed, as this one does along with ‘Food & Drink, Ventnor’

Thanks for the info Chris and I am aware of the link at the bottom of the page I was only suggesting that it should feature at the top. Had a look at all the sponsored features and in that section the words ‘sponsored feature’ features under the title of each summary piece. Not much to ask, but this article made it clear the differences between a… Read more »
It’s common practice for media to accept advertisements with the unspoken proviso that they will check out the goods or services advertised.If the advert is truthful they will often then insert an editorial recommending the business concerned.And,conversely if the advert is found to be untruthful,it will be withdrawn. I am speaking here of honest publications such as the VB. All that seems to have happened here is… Read more »

I agree. Best of luck to the Rex and it’s great at last to see the VB actually starting to earn some money from it’s excellent work.


Hurrah! Hurrah!
Food! At Home! No Cooking!
Not Indian or Chinese or cheap pizza and burgers!
That is all.
