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.

Took my daughter here today for a smoothie, they’re the best smoothies we’ve had. We’ll be back again soon to try the others!

We stopped off here whilst travelling between Aberdeen and Inverness. One of the reasons for stopping was their menu that offered something for both ourselves as meat eaters and our friends that are vegan and veggie. Its a small restaurant on a side street and...is very popular , and even midweek in March it was packed . Great decor and ambience. Waiter quickly found us a table and offered us menus, great choice of food and some unusual drinks options. Orders taken and food delivered quickly. Food was great quality and looked and tasted great . Staff friendly and very attentive even though very busy. Highly recommendMore

Big shout out to all the staff at Planta. I had to put my food back due to my own fault of not liking an item in it, the waitress went above and beyond and had me a new one made without the item I...didn't like. The lady made me feel comfortable and we had a giggle about it (im a fussy eater lol). I unfortunately didn’t get the lady’s name but she has long dark curly hair and wears glasses. Nothing was a hassle for herMore

Delighted and you will be too. My wife and I popped in before leaving town. Coffee was great and we split a caramel brownie that we both agreed was DELICIOUS. Service was good and the dining area was welcoming, clean and quirky

A nice meal with family. Two vegans, two vegetarians and meat eaters so very mixed diners and we were able to all have a selection which we all enjoyed. However we went at lunchtime but they only do pizza at night. Fryer was being cleaned...when we went so no fries available.More

I am writing to express my profound dissatisfaction with the abysmal service I experienced during my recent visit to Pizzaria Planto on Saturday 16 th September. My experience, to put it bluntly, was nothing short of a disaster, and I feel compelled to bring it...to your immediate attention. Upon our arrival at your establishment, my party and I promptly placed our food and drink orders. However, what followed was an excruciating 30-minute wait, during which we never received our drinks. To add insult to injury, other patrons who arrived after us were inexplicably served their meals before we even caught a glimpse of our orders. After enduring this interminable wait, we were approached by a staff member who incredulously inquired if we had seen the menu, despite our clear order placement. This interaction was not only infuriating but also utterly baffling, given the circumstances. I must emphasize that this visit was nothing short of a disgrace. I am appalled by the pitiful service I encountered during this visit. It is not only a disservice to your patrons but also a tarnish on the reputation of your establishment. I believe in offering candid feedback, and I trust that you will investigate this incident. I anticipate a prompt response detailing the measures you intend to undertake to address these egregious issues. Rest assured that I am willing to discuss this matter further if necessary. I eagerly await your swift and decisive response.More

This was our first time here and it will definitely not be our last! We had a lovely meal, food was delicious and service was excellent. We had a sharing platter to start, I had a pasta dish and hubby had a pizza, followed by...dessert. Delicious meal, beautifully presented and washed down with a lovely bottle of wine. The place has a lovely vibe and obviously very popular as there was a steady stream of people collecting take aways or coming for dinner. Already planning our next visit!More

My partner and I shared a pizza and pasta (and fries...) takeaway tonight and it was fantastic. Both dishes (and the fries...) were delicious and would highly recommend to anyone in the area. Best pizza i've had in a long time!

Came up from London to visit a friend. I had the vegan pizza and it blew me away. It tasted so fresh and clean. Followed by a brownie which was also amazing. Staff were friendly, warm and accommodating. Wish I could have this pizza all...the time!More

My husband and I attended the Valentine's evening and were really impressed with the quality of the food and general atmosphere of the restaurant. Although there was a small issue with our starters not arriving, the Planta team couldn't do enough to rectify things and...went well above and beyond. My only suggestion would be to offer an alcohol free alternative to the prosecco so the whole table could enjoy a welcome drink. But that's a very small point in an otherwise lovely experience. Thank you 🙂More

Having been to Planta previously and been seriously impressed with the pizzas, we fancied a lunchtime treat somewhere we could bring our trusty Labrador. Decided upon Planta and were really looking forward to a similarly excellently meal, whilst nervous in case it didn’t live up...to our expectations second time around. I’m glad to say that we weren’t disappointed and our Carni and Pepperoni pizzas once again hit the mark. Really surprised to see the negative review posted today - this is Neapolitan pizza as it should be and this will now be a regular venue for us.More

Great ambience. good service but Food failed. When I complained about my pizza having a stodgey thick rim and a disintigrating stringy wet middle which didnt support the topping I was told she was sorry Neopolitan style didnt work for me. So its just me...! Salad was small and sexily arranged on a slate which tried to disguise its lack of veg, Miniscule tomato, just rocket and the cheese was too much for the salad. The balsamic was the best thing about it. The whole salad cant have cost more than £1 to make, I paid £9. Another trendy gimmick - my small measure of vinagry red wine was served in a jumbo brandy glass, literally half an inch. While the water was in a wineglass. How chic ! Apparently its not cool to have side plates ! Had to ask. I was glad to see they put a warning in the menu that the parmesan was not vegetarian. The waitress argued wrongly that all cheese is vege. No, made with cow gut rennet unless stated. She had not read the menu, that was bad. So £45 down the toilet. Lidl sells superb pizzas for £3.50. We rarely eat out so this was hugely disappointing.More

Often end up with a funny and sore tum after eating here. Also, we were asked to leave after late breakfasts, drinks and cakes! Unless we were ordering more food. It’s not like we were there for hours. Plus there were empty tables. Felt very...unvalued, as a quite regular customer. Won’t be back soonMore
