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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We visited Nonna Selena on Wednesday whilst staying across the road at The Royal National Hotel and we were all very impressed with the service and food. There was 2 adults and an 8yr old in our party and the menu catered to all of...our tastes. The service was very good with friendly staff to greet us and take our orders. We’ll definitely visit again in the future.More

Had read the reviews that say this place will rip off on service charge/tips but ignored . The food is good but at the end I directly asked did the bill include service charge, the waiter told us no. When handed the card machine there...were options for a tip, as we were told no service charge was on the bill we left a tip . After leaving we worked out this was a tip on top of the service charge . Our items came to £86.60 and the bill was £95.26 which includes the 10% service charge. The real shame is we’d happily have paid that but being lied to about it is wrong. The bill also does not mention service charge or the amount for it so the restaurant must be aware, real shame.More

Cheerful, lively Italian with authentic food and outdoor terrace. Felt like we were actually in Italy rather than the middle of London. Friendly, attentive service from Michele and colleagues. Good value.

I found this little gem via reviews on Trip Advisor. My nephew was in Euston for a business meeting and I was also working in the vicinity so we arranged to meet for lunch. We ordered a bowl of calamari fritti to start and these...took a long time to cook so we were provided with a complimentary bowl of olives. The calamari was excellent when it arrived, proper thick strips fried to perfection. We both ordered pizzas, my nephew a Napoli and I, being a heathen, a Hawaiian. The pizzas arrived with no waiting after we had finished our calamari. The pizzas were really good with thin, crispy bases and plentiful toppings. We were fully satisfied. Service was excellent and it was good value for money, at less than £70 including drinks and service, particularly for Central London.More

This was our second visit to Nonna Selena. On both occasions we have had the warmest, friendliest welcome. Nothing is too much trouble. The atmosphere is lively and upbeat. The food, well the food is delicious! I can highly recommend the carbonara which in my...opinion, is the best carbonara ever! A rich creamy cheesey sauce covering every strand of spaghetti 😋😋 My husband had pizza and announced that it was as delicious and flavourful as the first visit. We've not tried the deserts as we've both been too full. We don't visit London often but we made sure we booked our hotel to be just around the corner specifically to visit Nonnas again. Regrettably I cannot remember the names of both staff who attended to us, I think the young lady said she was known as 'E'? Both she and her colleague were very attentive, without being overbearing. We would definitely recommend a visit to Nonna Selenas (apologies for the photos - I was so keen to tuck into the food I forgot to snap a shot before I started eating!)More
