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.

We have heard great things about this restaurant and wanted to try it first a long time. It was absolutely outstanding . Excellent choice of food, tremendous value for money. Delicious food, I didn’t want any of my courses to end! The staff were very...attentive without being invasive . There isn’t anything I would change other than I wish we had gone sooner. It will become our regular. Well done Mascalzone, you have something very special.More

You can’t beat this place - fantastic food that’s reasonably priced and great staff. Great menu and I can’t fault anything :)

Okay, so Mascalzone will not win you over with authentic music (instead 80's power ballads & greatest hits of the 70's predominate); its decor (particularly the pictures on the wall which have no apparent connection to the cuisine or even each other); or even its...service (which favours the brisk & efficient over the warm & personal). But despite this, I have no hesitation in making this a five star review. Why? Because the food, lovingly & attentively prepared in the ground floor open kitchen adjacent to our table, was absolutely superb. Flavours that leapt out of the lovely plates generously conveying the pizza, risotto & pasta dishes that we demolished. Drinks (including a reasonably priced wine list) & desserts were on point too but it's those starters & mains that I'll be thinking of most right up until I next have the pleasure of visiting which will be very soon. I have highly-rated Italian restaurants on my doorstep but will happily make the journey from Tynemouth to Sandyford to experience the hardworking delights of Mascalzone. Three VERY happy diners who truly appreciated the team's efforts to give us a wonderful night to celebrate my daughter's first professional contract. Thank you & see you soon.More

Called in on spur of the moment for early evening dinner. Very friendly staff, seated straight away near kitchen area. Great to see the chefs at work! Food was really tasty - I had penne con pollo. Dessert was even better - homemade Tiramisu absolutely...delicious. Great service and great value! Will definitely be back!More

Brilliant little corner shop bistro no airs or graces just great food and a welcome the staff were very professional. We were treated properly with respect and were given the menus the watchful staff very courteous and unobtrusive. The food was very Italian but not...pretentious just proper good food. We were sat next to kitchen as the food was prepared, I found that to be a bonus I like to see chefs at work and they occasionally smiled to see if we were enjoying our meals. This has been a breath of fresh air compared to recent food outings! Well done to the manager and staff.More

My spicy pizza was lovely, and all the better for a decent Primitivo to wash it down with, though I did have some FOMO when my wife's spicy prawns arrived, as they looked delicious.

Visited in person a week before to reserve a table for two in the front area. Whilst this was not guaranteed we did not expect on arrival to be shown to two high chairs on a window ledge. We explained this was not acceptable and...eventually the manager offered us a table next to the kitchen area. We have been to Mascalzone many times in the past but this was the first time since they extended their premises. Compared to previous occasions, overall we were disappointed.More
