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.

Second time here as we don’t really visit Blackpool. However we both kept saying we wanted to come back. Honestly the place is a GEM and we wished we lived closer. Amazing food and amazing staff. My wife wants to see the lights so we...will be back.More

We visited on Saturday 23 July, it was not our first time. The food is authentic Italian the service is friendly the atmosphere is great, we love it. One suggestion though, as the furniture etc is 50’s/60’s style it would be great to have that...era of music (rat pack crooners such as Dean Martin) played to the diners. We’ll be back soon music or not.More

Authentic italian dishes, plenty choice on the menu and generous portions. A lovely, small restaurant with friendly service. Families welcome. A relaxed, early dinner after the excitement of the pleasure beach was just what we needed. Highly recommend a visit.

There are so "restaurants" in Blackpool that you'd never want to go back to, so it was brilliant to find Ambrosinis which was easily the best restaurant we've been to here. The exterior and location is definitely deceiving, but the interior and quality of food...are amazing. The portion sizes are plentiful and everything we ordered tasted great (I'd recommend ordering a side of chicken wings so that you can dip your pizza crust in the sauce!). Being able to see the chefs in the kitchen tossing the pizza bases added to the authent. All in all, a fantastic meal in a place we couldn't recommend highly enough.More

A lucky find after failing to find anything suitable in Blackpool. This quality Italian Restaurant on the edge of Lytham St Anne's certainly fits the bill. Easily accommodated without a booking. Great menu choice and superbly presented and authentic Italian Cuisine. Very impressed, This little...restaurant should be proud of itself.More

I think many visitors believe that all of Blackpool’s eateries are mediocre, to say the least. However, as borne out by the reviews on Trip Advisor, this couldn’t be further from the truth, with the best ones comparing favourably with those around the country. Despite...being 200 miles from home, Ambrosini’s is one of my favourite Italian restaurants anywhere and is a must when visiting the town. The restaurant can best be described as intimate, but it has always been about the beautiful food and hospitality. However, since my first visit in 2012 and going back once/twice per-year since, the most recent visit was concerning at first, as Mr Ambrosini was not in the kitchen. Fortunately it transpires that not only is he a fantastic chef, he also has the knack of employing fellow chefs that can fulfil his exacting standards.More

Second visit and just as good as the 1st. I try not to tell too many out of towners about this place so I can make sure there is a table when I visit Blackpool. This is the areas best kept secret Italian restaraunt. The...food, service and ambiance is 1st class. I just wish I didn't live so far away as I would be there far more oftenMore

Another wonderful experience at this fantastic restaurant, great quality food and lovely staff and atmosphere. Two things let it down, there is isn’t a Nottingham branch, nor do they deliver to Nottingham. Thank you, another great meal.

Visited here for my wife's 60th Birthday while staying in Blackpool. The food was simply divine and the service exceptional. This is a small intimate resraraunt so has two sittings. Booking is probably well advised. Our food was fresh and hot despite quite an extensive...menu. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed. It is maybe fortunate this is a bit of a distance from blackpool itself otherwise it would maybe be a problem booking a table here. I suspect the locals would prefer to keep the reviews quite on this place and keep it to themselves and who could blame them with hhus quality, service and prices.More
