Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

1st course - as per photo attached.. no words. 2nd course - 4 traditional Romanian food ( sarmale ) no meat staffed in the cabbage. 3rd course - served cold. Believe that the food was prepared a day in advance and re-heat on the night…..

Cannot give a review of the food accurately as we were not able to eat there. We arrived at 2.12pm for a late lunch and were told we close at 3pm so you cannot come in. Was really looking forward to trying the place but...I don't think I'll bother now. NOTE TO RESTAURANT: Change your times on when you are open because that is false advertising and it will stop people driving for 45 minutes to get to you, only to be turned awayMore

My husband and I had my birthday dinner here yesterday evening and we were so impressed. From the moment we walked in, the server was charming and helpful and so professional. The menu was truly Italian with a very large choice. I had the Bruschetta...alla Caprese which was delicious and the cheese cooked to perfection. My husband had the Bruschetta Coppa which he too said was delicious. We both had an octopus dish - the octopus was tender and perfectly cooked. For pudding I had Tiramisu (bless them, they put a candle on it for me🤣) , again delicious and my husband had ice cream. We had a bottle of red wine from Puglia served at perfect temperature. There was nothing to fault. The decor was pretty and restful with the added bonus of a free car park. We were told the chef was trained in Bologna which explained why everything was so lovely. If we’d had this meal in a restaurant in northern Italy, we would have been as impressed. We will definitely return.More

Heard many good reviews about this Italian so went with family for lunch service. Chose from the lunch menu, obviously limited options but still a good selection to suit most palates. We were not disappointed, the service was excellent and the food was fantastic, freshly...made and tasty. £14 for 3 course lunch was great value and well worth it. Will definitely be visiting again.More

Living locally in Rothwell, we loved the Italian Market Kitchen until it closed down late 2022. So glad we have found another great local Italian restaurant. Great home cooked authentic Italian food, fantastic attentive service and reasonable prices. Will be visiting again.
