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.

Tasty fresh bread and butter and bruschetta brought for us all to...nibble on.Ordered drinks and then food.All our starters arrived and were delicious.We had goats cheese, mussels, prawn cocktail, potato skins, garlic mushrooms.The staff kept a close eye in us, was everything OK, sorting more drinks for us.Main courses were delicious...steak, chicken dishes, pizza. Had a great experience, will definitely be back. Highly recommendedMore

A local Italian restaurant that is far too good to keep for just the locals! Consistently outstanding food from a very talented chef, great staff and atmosphere. They really go out of their way to make your experience special and cater for any size of...group. Great bar area too, with friendly staff and customers, you can eat in the bar area too with full menu available if you want a more casual dining experience.More

First time at Amalfi and have to say it was absolutely delicious. Went for a birthday meal and service and food was great. They even did a special lasagne for the two vegans which was amazing and very much appreciated. It can be difficult to...eat out and cater for everyone.More

Absolute saviours! We pulled in after a long drive up from London. April and the crew were so kind they even managed to feed us a most delicious bolognaise after hours and chef came up to say hello and serve their delicious cheese cake. Keep...us going all the way up to the highlands!!! Hugely grateful and have a wonderful Christmas!! Mark and familyMore

After visiting Amalfi restaurant over several years, my mam kept asking why do you travel that far for “a meal” we’ll in august we went to the costa for a cheeky holiday and took the mother with us, so we decided to stay over night...at the airport and call into Amalfi on the way for our evening meal. Needless to say all my mother talked about on the way to the airport was how nice the meal was and how nice the restaurant was and now she realises why we travel such a distance to get not just great food but excellent food and service. This is a total hidden gem and i challenge anybody to visit and find a fault. We are already booked for my mother’s birthday next month.More

Had my baby shower here at the weekend and honestly the whole thing couldn’t have been anymore perfect! Everyone commented on how amazing the food was, the owners couldn’t have done anymore for us and also the girls working that day. From the minute I...booked this venue I never had one single problem. Thank you so much again and will 100% be visiting the restaraunt as well as using the venue for parties in the future!More
