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.

Very Negative Experience Gelato店员种族歧视亚洲人,千万别来。 本地华人想买个gelato,进门的时候柜台前只有一个不太会说英语的韩国人在点单,卖gelato的白人老太很不耐烦,问他哪来的,得知是韩国后啧了一声(是想看具体国籍方便种族歧视吗)。韩国人买完后柜台前只有我和我朋友,我们就站在韩国人刚刚点单付款的位置,所以不存在排队位置不对,店里也没有其他人在排队。老太不问我们点什么,看了我们一眼就装我们不存在往一旁走。我们还以为她会回来take我们的order,便耐心等待。突然门口来了一大家六七口印度裔,老太快速迎上去为其点单。直到这时,我们还在礼貌询问队伍到底在哪(在这很多年了,英语至少肯定能被人听懂吧)。老太看都不看一眼,完全装听不见看不见一旁站了俩等了半天的大活人。耳聋眼瞎和种族歧视都是病,至少去看好一个才能接待客人吧。刚看了眼Google Map reviews里有不少亚裔被歧视的反馈。避大雷。 I tried to buy a gelato from the gelato shop of the restaurant. The customer before me was apparently an international tourist from East Asia who didn't speak English. The white woman selling gelato seemed very annoyed with...the tourist and asked where he was from, which is frankly none of her business. After the tourist finished purchasing, it was just me and my friends waiting to order, and we had been politely queuing. For some reason, this woman then decided to ignore us, possibly because we are Asian as well. Another customer walked in, and she immediately took their order. At this point, we still politely asked her where the queue was, but once again, she pretended we didn't exist. Now, I can't find any excuse for her other than she either has a hearing problem or a racism problem. Absolutely unacceptable. Update: I just checked Google Maps reviews and found multiple similar cases where Asians are discriminated against at this store. I wonder if this is their signature practice.More

Came here for a family meal on a Friday night - very glad we booked in advance as the place was packed. We ordered the calzone alla Pugliese, calzone Boscaiola, pollo Milanese alla Americano, Salsiccia alla Napoletana and the Casarecce pasta. Everyone cleared their plates...which speaks to how delicious the food was! For dessert, we had the Limoncello crème brûlée, Coppa Nocciola, Tris di Sorbetti and La Margherita’s dozen, plus a hot chocolate and an espresso martini. Service was a little on the slow side but we didn’t mind as dishes were being made from scratch and the waiting staff were all very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for its quality food and great hospitality.More

Loved our visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent. Staff extremely friendly, was not issue when my wife asked requested no mussels in her Risotto Fruitti Del Mar. I also went for the same dish, £15. The garlic ciabatta and ice cream for desert...was excellent. Loved the atmosphere.More

It's a smallish a restaurant that provides good front of house service. The food is basic and I had the pizza which was so tough that even the knife I used was unable to cut it. The topping want great and it wasn't a sourdough...base. I ended up leaving half of the pizza due to being too embarrassed at being unable to cut it up. Other than that it was clean and pleasant and the company made up for the food.More

Fresh, good quality traditional Italian food at excellent prices. Staff are friendly, helpful and attentive - they served our large group very efficiently. There is a good range of dishes from pizza and risottos to sea bass and Salsiccia. Vegetarians in our party were very...happy with their options, especially the Involtini. Puddings were generous and looked terrific. Highly recommended.More

Have eaten here numerous times, thought it deserved a review. Great local family-run Italian restaurant just opposite Magdalene College. Friendly staff and consistently good food at reasonable prices, with a decent range of pizzas, pasta and meat/fish dishes. My favourite dishes - Pizza Arrabbiata, Maiale...(pork fillet) with Marsala, and Pollo Milanese with spaghetti Napoli. The sea bass is also good, though it’s a big portion! Excellent range of ice cream and a few other desserts - the Tiramisu and Limoncello Crème Brûlée are both yummy, the chocolate cake is delicious but huge. It’s often very busy, booking may be advisable, especially in the evenings. I don’t give many 5 star reviews, but this place is all I want in a local Italian restaurant.More

We love this non-chain Italian where the food is never a disappointment. Great pizzas and pasta and lovely staff. Having been as a couple and with a small family group we didn't hesitate to book the characterful beamed upstairs room for 18 friends when celebrating...a special birthday. They did not let us down. Everyone praised the food and the service. Long may they continue to provide a great venue for good food in a lovely part of the city.More
