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.

I had read the reviews and thought i would check it out whilst away on business, I stayed at HI Watford so was only a brief walk, didn’t book, so took a chance as it was a Me bday which was accommodated. The place is...lovely inside and the staff were friendly, attentive but not overly. I ordered the meatballs to start and lamb chops for main. OMG the taste was out of this world, I was left wanting more but full. From a Northern Monkey, Deffo worth a visit our kid.More

Real Italian dishes with top quality. You can't get any better Italian restaurant on this island. Choice is large, quality is excellent, vibe is cosy and staff is friendly. Need anything else?

Amazing. Simply amazing. We were staying overnight at the Leonardo hotel and wanted to book somewhere close, but also highly rated. Could not have picked a better place. Just 5 mins easy walk from hotel. We had three courses including steaks and gelato , a...couple of cocktails and a bottle of wine. All the food was delicious and the wine was perfect. Service was also impeccable. Would heartily recommend.More

Came to this place for a birthday dinner having seen a lot of 5 star reviews. Took 15 minutes for the waiter to arrive with menus and then another 20 minutes until he came to take our order for both drinks and food. Food was...average, nothing special and the service was poor. There were people who came in after us who got served before us. We finished dinner 2 hours after arriving. Felt we were ignored despite restaurant not being as busy. Empty plates after main course were just left on the table and never cleared and at that point we just asked for the bill and called it a night. Never got asked if we wanted more drinks or if we wanted dessert. They missed out on making another £20-30 from us so felt it was a missed opportunity by the restaurant. Unfortunately, we won't be coming back.More

Lovely friendly restaurant and a delicious meal. Our bread starter was really tasty. Then I had tuna and husband had carbonara. Both excellent. Finished with ice cream dessert. Reasonable price and great tasting.

We went for a quiet dinner and were really impressed. We walked in and we were greeted warmly. Decor and ambience is chilled and contemporary. Drinks were bought quickly, as was food. Staff were lovely and menu choice was vast. We opted for pizza, sides...(you must try crispy zucchini) and bresaola Con rucola. Home-made tiramisu was definitely grandma’s recipe so you must try it. A quiet evening turned into a really special oneMore

This is the best restaurant in Watford by far, We have been coming here since it was the Barracuda and we had always loved it, we were a bit concerned when Barracuda moved, but we had no need to worry, the food if anything is...better prepared by a top class young chef and served by welcoming friendly staff. The fillet steak is first class and I would say as good if not better the the vastly more expensive Prime restaurant. We have tried most of the menu and have never been disappointed. I would urge you to try it you will not be disappointed.More

Food was amazing, as was the service. We had three courses and they were all so nice. The mozzarella on my starter was creamy and the tomato and avo were so fresh. We all enjoyed our mains, one of our party had the seafood risotto...which they loved and the other dishes were as tasty. would 100% recommend, just a shame we live so far away!!More

I booked the restaurant for our work Christmas’s lunch and I am so pleased that I chose Il Pellegrino. There were plenty of dishes to choose from and we were offered both the set menu and the a la carte. The food was delicious and...the house wine was equally as good. We enjoyed a great service and highly recommend this restaurant for a visit.More

I’ve been to Italy, and this is the best Italian food I’ve had, mains were perfect as were the starters, the waiter we had was amazing and the chefs clearly know what they are doing, 10/10.
