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.

Saturday afternoon meet up, half way for our family swop over, Nice bar and cafe, but sadly the service was incredibly slow|! By the time I had eaten my teacake and drank 2 cups of tea my sons toastie was still nowhere to be seen,...apparently the chef had missed the item off our order, the bar was fairly empty, not that busy at all, when the toastie finally arrived myself and father had long finished our tea and cake. Sadly no appeasement was offered.More

We have lived in the area for a few years and have visited Buonissima a number of times for lunch, dinner and drinks so it was sentimental for us to pick it as our venue for our co-ed baby shower. From start to finish, the...service was fantastic. They were really responsive via email with my many MANY questions and queries. They accommodated as best they could and communicated clearly if something was not possible. On the day, the staff were friendly, attentive and hard working. The kitchen did a fantastic job at serving around 40 starters and mains efficiently. They allowed us to bring our own cake and decorations which meant we could really make it our own. Overall, it was a great experience and I want to say thank-you to the management, Megan and the team on the day for a great event. Shout out to Megan for looking after us so well and being so patient with the never ending requests!More

Ordered an antipasti board as 4 weeks ago it was lovely. This time the hams were hard there was 2 very thin slices of Brie and yellow English cheddar the bread was awful. There was a pile of rocket with balsamic on it and warm...olives. When asked if all was Ok I said no not as good as last time. The reply from the waitress was. “ well it may be because we are busy “ half the place was taken up by a baby shower for which no one had yet arrived .no where near as good as it was. Seems to being run by young people with no one to give guidance. Such a shame as I have recommended it to many people. But will no longer do so. It’s lost it appeal. So sadMore
