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.

If I could give 6 stars I would. My wife and I have been here several times in the past 18 months, and each time was better than the last. The food is so flavoursome, elevating Italian food to a new level. The ambience is buzzing and the staff, in particular Michaella, are friendly, attentive and they go above and beyond, making you feel special. Michaella’s cocktails are also to die for! Our favourite restaurant in Surrey and will be returning again very soon.

Incredible experience at a Clava restaurant, We been few times and always spot on, this time we manage to book for the monthly tasting menu and wine paring dinner special event hosted by the wine maker and Giulio the owner explaining the wines at every course. The exceptional food & wine pairing with the knowledge of the wine maker itself and Giulio is an incredible experience. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Thank you Clava team, keep it up! ! Absolutely fantastic.

One year on and what’s changed, well apart from a few subtle minor things, NOTHING, you will still get the FINEST modern Italian cuisine made from the FINEST ingredients lovingly created by Chef Valentino, the FINEST Italian wines specially selected by Sommelier Giulio and the FINEST service outside of a Michelin starred restaurant, so 12 months on and things are just FINE. Their Anniversary was celebrated over 2 nights featuring a magnificent 6 course tasting menu with wine flight. As always, the courses were original, delicious and the wines complimented every dish, if I was pushed to say what was the standout dish, I would say the “Home made Bigoli, rabbit leg & tomato ragu stuffed loin”. The pasta was handmade, hand rolled and hand stretched, the 6 hours it took to create was well worth it as it added a wonderful flavour and texture which I had never experienced before. All the wines were perfectly matched and the standout wine for me was the Moscato Rosa, this is a sweet red dessert wine and, again, not one I have had before. “But don’t just take my word for it book a table, I promise, you won’t be disappointed”. Thank you Clava for a fabulous evening and a wonderful year of culinary delights.

We were searching for a nice Italian restaurant between Kingston and Woking for date night and found Clava. Location and parking are easily accessible on the West Byfleet station approach. Restaurant has a classic decor and inviting atmosphere with just enough buzz but not too noisy even when full. Service was very good and attentive but not obtrusive with ever watchful Giulio overseeing the entire dining room. They have a very decent wine list with plenty of reasonable options to choose from. Dishes were really lovely - well balanced with interesting flavours and textures and fresh ingredients. Just look at the photos and you can see the variety and unique style of their dishes. Clava would not be out of place in Central London and so far, has been better than most city Italian places we have tried. Our favourite dish was the the wild boar pappardelle ragu which had such depth and warmth - use the bread to mop up the sauce. Best of all - if you want something special (we are fans of lobster pasta and vongole) speak with Giulio to see if they can arrange it for you. The chef is amazing there, and when he turns his hand at special dishes - you are bound to be delighted!

Been wanting to visit Clava since it opened and finally visited yesterday evening. We received a lovely warm welcome, and staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Very impressed by the elegant interior of the restaurant. The main event was of course the food which was delicious! We are fortunate to have such an excellent local restaurant and will definitely be returning.

Very good - sytlish and smart decor. Staff very efficient and friendly. Service good. Food good, good portions and different dishes to try. Not the usual Italian pizza, pasta etc. Nice for an occasion. It was packed so obviously popular.

The food and the service were excellent! We chose Clava to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and loved everything about it. Giulio was helpful before the event and enabled us to choose from the à la carte menu even at lunchtime. The food looked and tasted superb! We shall return with friends without doubt to spread the word!

Had dinner with my wife over the weekend and experience was overall very good. Used to visit this restaurant under the previous name and ownership and now it's a pleasure to see the renovated dining room under new ownership. Very good service, friendly staff, had the chance to have a nice chat with one of the new owners where he explained about his plans, so all in all, very personalised attention. Food was very good. My wife had the lamb and I went for the pork belly and both dishes were very well prepared and tasty. Don't give the max rating simply because starters were just ok. Some small room for improvement there. As said, a very welcomed dining alternative in West Byfleet and we will definitely go back very soon.

Visited recently to celebrate my partners birthday. We were so looking forward to the same level of food as shown in most of the previous reviews. But, sadly our experience was well down on the scale used by other reviewers. I’m not saying the food was bad, but not to the level we were hoping to see. The one saving grace was the lady that served us, she was brilliant. We had to send one of our meals back as it was definitely sub standard. Will we go back ? Not for a long time.

Couldn't fault anything at Clava. Delicious food, friendly and professional staff and a great vibe with the restaurant full. It is the perfect local restaurant for dinner with friends or a special occasion. Prosecco, rose and a delicious dessert wine where all enjoyed with the meal. What more can I say but to say I don't think you will be disappointed if you visit this lovely new restaurant in West Byfleet.

Another fantastic evening at the exquisite Clava Restaurant, this time for Canapé's and Prosecco, with the most inviting and relaxed ambience, followed by the most delicious meal, we opted for the Lobster arancini & Surrey farms Beef carpaccio, both delicious, followed by Lamb cannon with pistachio crust, aubergine caponata and chick pea croquette and the Monkfish Tail served with wild fennel gnocchi & leek & monk’s beard fricassee. All served with elegance and the most perfect wines to compliment the flavours. Feels truly decadent to visit this fabulous location and will be a regular place to visit in Surrey for me and my companions. Nothing but perfection here and the most warmest of welcomes. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you Team Clava!
