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.

My partner and I each had the 2 course meal which was a deal. We couldn’t believe the excellent quality of the food for the price of £17.95. Superb value. The staff were charming. The restaurant is centrally based too. If you’re in Cheltenham you...should go here for a lovely dining experience.More

An excellent restaurant! We reserved a table for 5:00 as we were going to the theatre later. On arrival we were greated in a friendly and warm manner, we were the only ones there at this point, not surprising as it was early. We were...given a window seat overlooking the outside area and roundabout on a lovely evening. The food was excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. I had a glass of montepulciano and it was delightful, one of the best I have tasted. The service was first class and very warm. We would most certainly visit again.More

What a lovely restaurant. The food was really nice (all cooked to order). The staff were very friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was really nice. It was nice to find an Italian restaurant that wasn't part of a big chain serving heated up dishes...that had been delivered pre-cooked. The prices were very reasonable too!More

Restaurant was very busy on Wednesday evening, we're glad we've booked and they manage to find a table in short notice. The meals were freshly cooked and well presented. I had the fish stew, which the waitress recommended and it was absolutely amazing, tasty and...plenty of seafood. My partner had whole plaice and he was very pleased with his choice. We also shared a garlic bread with mozzarella - yummy! The staff was professional, not intrusive, friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.More

We booked this restaurant in advance of our arrival in Cheltenham. A lovely family run restaurant serving excellent quality food. My husband is a fan of meat cannelloni- the one he had here he rates in his top three he has ever had and it...was only his starter! I had the prawn and chilli pasta main - absolutely yummy!!! My husband had the four cheese pizza. He said the pizza dough was lovely and light, mix of cheeses was excellent. Dessert didnt disappoint - try the baked banana and sultanas (definitely with ice cream). We will definitely be back next time we come to Cheltenham.More

I strongly recommend Primavera Ristorante as we had a fabulous experience. This small restaurant is family run and authentic. The food is superb, it reminded me of traditional, homemade cuisine. The service is warm, friendly attentive, efficient and I can go on.. Although it was...very busy they made time to talk to us, we ended up having a few interesting chats. One of the chats was about a famous actress that we spotted in the restaurant sitting next to us.
