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 stopped in Chippenham on our way south after a day trip and were tempted by the look of this Italian restaurant. We had no booking but were shown to an upper room, which was empty, but soon filled up with other diners. After ten...minutes we were able to place our order. Then we waited, and waited some more. Others around us were served, and we still waited, until the waiter came and apologised that our order had been mislaid! We had to place our order again, and now it was 40 minutes since we had arrived. Another 25 minutes we finally got our meals and more apologies from the waiters. The food was average at best and combined with the long wait, we were not entirely happy when we left. They had indicated that we would get a discount, but I only saw that we had not been charged for just one £4.70 side salad. Never mind. We are not often in Cirencester and unlikely to be back.More

Arrived just after opening on a Monday evening and the place was very quiet. We had a warm welcome and had a pick of the tables. Service was excellent even though the place stared to get busier. The bread and oil was my choice of...starters which was very fresh and tasteful. For my main I had the risotto. This was cooked perfectly and tasted great. The table across from us had pizzas which looked amazing (food envy). I would definitely recommend this Italian restaurant if you are in the area.More

Went for dinner. Atmosphere 2/5 Food 3/5 This place seemed to be busy with large tables laid out but something is missing. Risotto had far too much butter in it that made it taste quite sickly. The coke had a strange taste to it. If...you’re a lover of Italian food - perhaps try somewhere else.More

Risotto was chalky and under seasoned. The soufflé was obviously straight out of the microwave. It’s cheap but not a great example of Italian food made with love. Really disappointing

Good food, reasonably priced. Background music very old fashioned traditional Italian which was a little odd.

Service was good. Food was average. Pretty sure the tomato sauce on the pasta dishes is the same generic sauce from Dolmio with various toppings added.

We were in Cirencester and looking for somewhere to eat. My wife loves Italian food, and this place had good reviews. The food was good, but portion sizes (given cost) were below what I would have expected; so much so that I had to eat...something else after we left the restaurant. The service was lacking as well, nothing rude but just non-interested, hardly said a word. Won’t be rushing back if I’m Cirencester again.More

Food in general was received well. However the spaghetti Fruttis masa (spaghetti, mussels and prawns) left a lot to be desired. Would not recommend. Prawns were chewy an tasteless. As were the mussels to. Do not recommend sea food at this restaurant. Was definitely frozen.

This is possibly one of the worst restaurants I have visited, Italian or otherwise. The only reason for the 2 stars is that it fed us when we were hungry, the decor was ok, and it did seem to be popular on a Monday night....My starter was abysmal - mediocre bread was served with what what supposedly balsamic vinegar and olive oil - it tasted absolutely yuk! My Cannelloni was completely dry, and the banoffee pie was clearly pre-made and chilled, lovely topping with stiff and dry base. Not at all impressed, it's not difficult to produce authentic Italian food even at home, and yet this place did exactly the opposite. Yes I probably should have addressed this at the time, but then I might have been offered another one - no thank you. The staff also need to be a bit more smiley!More
