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.

Lovely looking place and food was nice. Staff was good but my issue is the 10% service charge. There was about 18 of us and had 6 tabs in total. All different prices on the bills. I asked could the service charge be removed off...our bills as I would sooner cash tip. We was told we can't remove it. I said it's optional usually. He told me not here, It has to stay on. I asked where does it state that service charge has to remain on it? Infact where does it state that there is service charge at all? He said it doesnt. I've never heard this before and I work in hospitality myself and our service charge is optional. He said its not here it's the owner that makes up the rules. Out of all the tabs the service charge was over £100 in total. Beware that it can not be removed. I have uploads some of the receipts. I won't be visiting again.More

Fantastic food. Friendly knowledgeable staff. A must visit if you’re after great Italian food in Liverpool. 10 minutes in a taxi from the city centre. The actual street it’s on has plenty of pubs etc. We loved it, couldn’t fault anything. We’ll certainly be back.

Went to celebrate a friends birthday. My husband and I ate the crab and lobster ravioli. We both suffered from sickness and diarrhoea during the night. Complained to the management but received nothing more than an acknowledgement, no apology.

Fantastic restaurant, food was outstanding, service was brilliant. The young lady who took our order memorised every starter, main & side (5 of us), no pen and paper, no tablet! Impressive 😎 Cost around £25 each for two courses, sides and drinks. Excellent value.

Me and my friends went for birthday celebrations in December after Christmas. We noticed the bartender kept looking at us and everytime we walked he would stare at us and look us up and down. This made us feel so uncomfortable we ended up just...eating and leaving. I would recommend management to either get rid of him or train him on how to not look at girls, for all he knows we could have been underage.More
