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.

The entrance to Bufala is not promising or enticing, but do not let this put you off. We have just had a couple of great pizzas and an authentic tiramisu with a cracking bottle of wine. Thanks to the attentive professional staff.

Popped in for a light lunch, shared a garlic pizza bread which was delicious, in fact the best we’ve ever had. Home made dough perfectly cooked with delicious garlic pesto topped with rocket. The wine was great too, would recommend & return and try the...pizzas next time that also looked great, not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and very authentic. Was able to take the dog which was great. Nb they add a service chargeMore

Went here while visiting Fowey with my wife. Great place, cracking service. No need to book. Had house wine which was great and carne pizza which was really tasty. Well worth the visit.

Superb pizza, simple vibe to the place, good service and a great 0% beer. No idea why others have complained about the service and if you don't think it's worth the 12.5% service charge, you don't have to pay it. Simples. Some people!

I think the best pizza I’ve ever had. We all felt the same. They did a vegan one for me and it was utterly delicious. Wine was also excellent, and the service was great. Just a fantastic place. Please do visit if you’re in Fowey!

Had an amazing meal at this really vibrant restaurant. You can’t book but we managed to get in and had some lovely food served by friendly staff. On the day we visited it was raining, but there looked to be a lovely deck looking out...over the harbour which would be great on a sunny day.More

Great tasting pizzas with good service. Advisable to book which we didn't do - had to wait a while which is understandable.

The pizzas are lovely. It's a small menu bit to be honest I can't fault it. The staff on 2 occasions I couldn't fault. So why only 3 stars - there is a 12.5% service charge. I wouldnt say the service is worth that. Its...a restaurant they serve you which is what I expect. What really galled me was an additional charge as the 'machine sometimes rounds up'. Really? I'd call that an over charge. Good food and adequate service but I feel ripped off.More

There is a great view available on an open area at the back of the restaurant . Whilst this is lovely it doesn’t warrant the overpriced food … which was fresh but the Pizzas we had were burnt (or very crispy if your selling them...🤠) with not much flavour . The staff were very attentive & very pleasant , helpful & attentive… I was happy to pay 12.5% for the service they provided , although if the management do get to see this review they should concentrate on flavour alongside the quality of the service . We enjoyed our visit , although we are unlikely to return … better to grab a cheese butty & sit on the Town Quay to enjoy the view of the river !More

All of our family of five really enjoy the delicious food and drink at Bufala. The service is very good and extremely officiant, nothing was too much trouble. All we had to do was ask nicely and the waiter was happy to put a few...tables together for us. We sat out on the terrace with a great view of the harbour and it’s activity. I personally really enjoyed the pesto to dip your pizza crusts in, definitely recommend the truffle mushroom pizza! Olives were great too. Since our last visit I keep having Bufala cravings…yes it was that good!More

We visited this restaurant with high hopes of enjoying a pizza while taking in the breathtaking view of the beautiful harbour from the balcony. However, our experience quickly soured. Unfortunately the sea view tables were occupied so they moved some tables to seat the six...of us not overlooking the harbour. We placed our drinks order and, as the people in the tables overlooking the harbour had gone, I asked the waitress to be moved but she said "We don't move seated customers". I asked again, saying we really would like to move and that it wasn't an unreasonable request as we had only got drinks, but she said no she won't move us and that they don't move tables. I pointed out that they had already moved tables to accommodate us but she slammed the drinks down on the table. We then heard her say to a colleague "You can serve them". Another senior water came over and said they wouldn't move us so we decided to leave. He asked me to pay for the untouched drinks but I refused. He then asked again quite aggressively saying I must pay, so we just walked out. I now wish we had read the other reviews before we went in, as there are many complaints of rudeness. Also I notice there's a 12% service charge!More
