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.

Visited this restaurant for a family meal, the food was good and not badly priced, the only let down was the young waitresses constantly coming to the table asking if we wanted more drinks which were vastly overpriced.

Meal, food and service was very acceptable, but I don't believe that my pint of Peroni should have attracted a price of £6.15....this, to my mind is extortionate...... You must have made a profit by charging me £13.95 for my meal.

Huge thanks to Gabrielle and all his staff, for providing us with a superb Christmas dinner. Our party had different starters, mains and deserts and all reported very high standard of quality, presentation and taste. To get so many meals out to a hungry mass...is credit to the kitchen team, front of house and waiters/waitresses. There was so much turkey, we took some home for my dog...... And he loved it too... 🤣 Well done..!More

Generally very good, menu vast in typical Italian style. Food excellent & service friendly if not the fastest but they were busy. What really annoyed me is on paying & enquiring that tips on card go to staff we are informed no they didn’t get...get them. Nor are they allowed to keep cash tips. Now I am not sure on the legalities however if I choose to make a gratuity then I expect it to go to the people of my choosing. So 1 star lost for this. Policy needs revision immediately.More

Stayed overnight in Bishop Auckland and booked a table for a Friday night in advance. The restaurant was very busy with a great atmosphere. The service was welcoming, friendly and efficient. The prawn and mussels starters were excellent and the vegetarian and meat feast pizzas...were really nice. Very good value and would definitely eat there again.More

This restaurant has been established for many years but it was my very first visit and my friends first visit for 30 years (they've been living abroad). It's good reputation came before it but was well deserved. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive and...the main waiter was particularly knowledgeable. I had calamari fritti to start, my husband the home made pate and my friends the mussels and garlic mushrooms respectively. Mains were tagliata (steak cut across the grain), King prawns with spicy rice, chicken Diane and a pizza. All were delicious. The house red was an unpretentious montepulciano d'abruzzo. All in all absolutely delicious food in a nice atmosphere with lovely staff. By far the best Italian restaurant we have been to in the local area so far.More

There is limited parking at the restaurant but there are two public car parks ( free after 6pm) within about 30 metres so parking shouldn't be a problem.
