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.

Went in about 2pm on a Thursday so it was quiet. Only a small place but had a wonderful, welcoming staff, quick service and the pizza was served fast, got and was delicious.

The table next to us complained that the pasta was bland and i thought they were just old, grumpy and fussy. But i have to agree that the pasta was bland and tasteless. I finished mine and partner left most of it. Staff asked if...everything was ok but didn’t to disappoint them further. We had creamy mushroom pasta. I believe it could easily improve if they add chicken to it and also more/thicker sauce. Would be willing to pay more for an increase in quality. The garlic bread was very tasty however!More

Thank you for your review. If we were to add chicken it would no longer be Spinach and Mushroom pasta and no longer a vegetarian dish.

Real Italian food . We often visit Bakewell and this is the first time at this restaurant and definitely not the last . From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed by the friendly and helpful staff . After looking at the...great value menu we took their recommendation of an Italian Pasta dish . We enjoyed a drink while the meal was being prepared. The food came and I can honestly say it was one of the best pastas I have ever eaten. An Italian classic dish at a great value price .More

Visited Ricci,s November 20th thought it would be a nice place to get a pizza as we were on coach trip. Unfortunately the service was terrible. Waited 45 mins for a pizza and when my wife asked about it, she was told it would be...going in the oven in a minute. When we finally received the pizza it was undercooked. Other customers were complaining about the length of time it was taking to get their orders ready as wellMore

Ordered a takeaway and rocked up to collect it. A great start as the pizzas were made fresh and ready to be cooked. Of the two young cooks, one seemed to be a little stressed and to be honest wasn’t inspiring too much confidence that...the the food would be good, however, the pizzas and pasta dishes were great. The large pizza is 10” as it says on the menu. Maybe others were expecting a 12”? It is quite clear though. Pizza dough is amazing.More

We had a long walk with our Lab and wanted an outdoor quick bite meal so opted for Pizza as we'd been here a few years ago and it was nice, not this time. We ordered a LARGE Margarita pizza and wanted a water (didn't...have any) and a coffee (machine wasn't working) not great had to go to another shop. The large pizza was not as described it was more like a child's pizza as you can see in the picture the size of my average hand spread, with hardly any topping. Disappointed is an understatement. Owner sat on his laptop by the door, didn't even raise his head to say hello. We won't go here again, we'd advise anyone asking to eat elsewhere, both wished we'd gone to the Red Lion instead, next time we will.More

We have just had lunch at this small Italian restaurant in Bakewell. We ordered pizzas, which took a while to prepare, because all the dough is freshly made, but it was definitely worth the wait. The pizzas were authentic and delicious. I’m gluten free and...the chef explained that he had experimented over time to perfect gluten free dough. He has certainly got it right! It was the best pizza I’ve ever had. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the hussle and bussle of market day Monday in Bakewll.More
