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.

Behind an unimposing exterior lies a true culinary gem! Excellent Italian cuisine and attentive personal service. The husband and wife proprietors obviously love their work and did everything possible to create a lovely experience. When ordering our desert my wife mentioned it was my birthday,...and when the desert arrived it was topped with a lighted candle and 'happy birthday' was sung - thank you for that delightful personal touch. The dining area is small, so definitely a good idea to book a table in order to avoid the risk of disappointment.More

We had a takeaway from this delightful café two nights running on our recent trip. Not only was the food supremely edible but the couple running it and responsible for the cooking were amazing and went out of their way to be helpful and to...make sure we had everything we needed . They welcome dogs and we could have eaten in but ours is a very young puppy and could be quite annoying to diners. I would highly recommend this place with it's amazing food and staff, I will go back at the first opportunity.More

Superb food and service in a very cosy atmosphere. Don't miss out if you like Italian food! Hosts are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure you enjoy your meal. We had pizza and lasagne which were excellent. Prices are competitive and...not over the top.More

What a find! From the moment we booked a table through to the end of our visit with a homemade celebration cake made by Alessandra everything was superb. We had a large party of 16 for our 25 wedding anniversary and it was made all...the more special as the restaurant catered for us even though they usually close on Sundays. The restaurant is small but a gem if you are in Paignton. Its small but beautifully formed. The food was fresh and cooked there and then by the wonderful husband of Alessandra. We had a number of vegetarian’s and the restaurant catered for them really well. We had a guest with a nut allergy and they made sure he was accommodated. If you are in Paignton then you must go here. We will be back.More

Parked up in Paignton eager for our trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway but first we needed food. What a stroke of luck, we had parked just outside this restaurant and luck was definitely an understatement. There was only one table available as the others...were reserved, which suggested we'd made the right decision. My wife and I had the lasagne and my mother-in-law had the pork with onions and roast potatoes. I can categorically say the lasagne was the best I'd ever had. This was followed by the tiramisu which again was the best ever. Couldn't fault the food. The staff were fantastic and the owner was friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back again, when we next visit Paignton.More

We we’re looking on trip advisor for somewhere to eat in Paignton and thought we’d check this out after reading the reviews. It did not disappoint, great service, lovely food and a nice vibe. If I had to be picky an offer of black pepper...n Parmesan would have been appreciated. Thank youMore
