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.

After having driven past countless times and never visiting, we booked this restaurant for an evening meal to celebrate my birthday weekend. We were greeted warmly on arrival and shown to our table. The menu was varied and there were extra specials available which the...waiter explained to us. He was also knowledgeable about the wine menu and made a great recommendation. Although offering a children's menu, both of my children chose a dish from the adult menu which the chef was happy to "shrink down" into a children's portion which was much appreciated. There was beef carpaccio on the menu but on the day of our visit, this had been swapped for venison, which I don't eat. The chef was kind enough to offer to make me a beef version which again was very much appreciated. The food was absolutely stunning. Fresh, great portions and well presented and the staff couldn't have done more for us. It's not the cheapest place around, but we were happy to pay for good quality food and great service. The only thing that could have been improved would be perhaps to have the specials on a board or printed out as a) I had forgotten some of them straight away and b) I was nervous ordering without seeing the cost and didn't like to ask how much they each were. Overall, a fab experience and we can't wait to come back again!More

Our favourite restaurant. The food is excellent, the prices are good and there is always a warm welcome. Ten of us (six adults and four teenagers) went for a special birthday lunch on Sunday 7th January. There is an extensive (but not overwhelming) menu so...there was something to suit everyone's tastes. All agreed the food was exceptional and the service friendly and helpful. It was a really enjoyable lunch to celebrate a special occasion. We definitely recommend La Cantina in Farnham Common.More

Cheerful and friendly greeting on our entrance! Lovely place. Nice thin bread sticks. Food quality not as good as we had hoped. Server was definitely new and in training. We will return in a few months and try again for the quality we are used...to in Ravenna and Bologna.More

Whilst we are regular customers this was our first visit for Christmas day with family across the generations. The restaurant was super busy with plenty of customers we recognised in festive spirit so a great atmosphere. Our group choose from across the menu and everyone...was complimentary about the food and that the portions were not too big so we did not feel as though we had been overfed - in fact the meal finished with everyone sharing an excellent cheese platter for 10. Eating out for Christmas was an excellent choice and one we will repeat.More

We booked in for the second sitting on Christmas Day, and had just such a wonderful time. As with every visit, we were welcomed and the service was first class, it was busy but a lovely atmosphere. The food was tasty and a lovely variety...for those not wishing to take up the traditional turkey. It’s always going to be a challenge for 2 sittings and transitioning from first to second, but the team handle it with professionalism and style. We are incredibly lucky to have this restaurant in the village, and with such classy owner operators. All the touches of the bread and other little surprises always goes noticed, hence the extra tip we left the staff for working Christmas Day to give us a day with the family without distraction.More

We have been to this restaurant on different occasions over many years and were booked in for Christmas Dinner, second sitting this year 2023. We have always been well looked after. Sadly this Christmas was a complete let down with a hugely disappointing, very expensive...Christmas meal. We arrived as requested at 3.30pm and were taken to our table where cutlery and crockery were missing. Although the table was finally set we still had to request crackers during the meal and additional cutlery. While the starters were enjoyed we were not offered bread, although watched other tables being offered it. Our order of 5 turkey mains were varying in size, either just 2 to 4 sprouts , not ‘vegetables’ as advertised and just a few halves of small roasted new potatoes, rather thin slices of turkey, one cocktail chipolata. No sauces offered. The vanilla crème brûlée which was advertised as being served with a blood orange sorbet. It was infact served with strawberry ice cream and no notification by waiting staff that there was a change on the menu.The crème brûlée had no burnt sugar on it . The tables were packed tightly and to the point staff had difficulty in manoeuvring around everyone. I really felt for the young staff who were trying their best. When booking we had asked if they wanted us to pre book our meals, but said it wasn’t needed . Most probably the manager had not thought through correct quantities required for Christmas Day, and the result was a very poor offering. Sadly our patronage will now not be supporting this local business.More

This place was a great find - a brilliant Italian restaurant with fantastic hosts and a great menu. Food was exceptional - and the wine list very very good. Unexpectedly nice place/food - and quite busy for a midweek lunch. Highly recomended.

We visited for Christmas Day lunch which was excellent value for the quality of food. There was a lot of choice on the set menu so found deciding quite difficult. In the end we had scallops and my husband had a generous starter of crab...& salmon. Mains were beef medallions and my daughter had the vegetarian ravioli, all absolutely delicious. Berry brulee & a chocolate mouse completed a wonderful meal. The staff are always excellent and all work hard. We have eaten here before and the experience is consistently of the highest standard - we will be back as soon as possible.More
