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.

Booked a table for me and my daughter a special treat, when I called them to book I wanted a window seat on the ground floor and they told me it was fine, when we arrived they told us we were upstairs, the man on...the front desk was rude and could not give us any seat so we said we would not stay and went next door to Calvers they were so nice and found us a perfect seat and had a lovely time, The man at Trattoria could not care a less , so they only look after the regulars who spend a lot of money. Will not be returning. Dee.More

Being in Bexhill on a Sunday, we were struck by the disappointing choice of restaurants offering food in the evening. We then found this gem. A super choice of dishes, as well as the standard pizza & pasta. The staff were friendly and we had...an amazing meal. Pasta is homemade as were all their desserts. It was lovely to find saltimbocca and fish choices on the menu.More

Booked this for a bite to eat before going to The De La Warre for a concert this week. Good choice. Very much at the authentic end of Italian cuisine - tasty and distinctive. Service was courteous and efficient with no irritatingly long waits between...courses, so we had plenty of time to get to the concert. It’s also worth noting that prices were very reasonable. Recommended.More

Lunch 27th May 2024. In my experience the best Italian Restaurant in Sussex. From the Antipasti Mixed Olives, Bruschetta Pomodoro, Calamari Fritti con aioli, Mozzarella in Carrozza to the Gamberoni all'italiana con linguine, Capricciosa, Spaghetti allo Scoglio, Gnocchi and desserts, the consensus on the food...for our party of five was "absolutely delicious!" The succulent Seafood, was par excellence, certainly THE best in Bexhill-on-Sea; chef has an excellent touch. I prefer the salad garnish a little more fresh. Portions were ample. Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Prices were reasonable.More

These days I think it’s hard to find a good and reasonably priced Italian restaurant; this happens to be one of them. This was a pre gig dinner just opposite the De La Warr Pavilion. We arrived @ 1730 and the place was humming. I...had a fantastic hot baked avocado starter followed by squid ink seafood pasta, both of which were specials of the day. My friend started with whitebait followed by the same main course. Then ice cream for me, chocolate torte for him. I think this is a family run business and they absolutely knocked it out of the park. When I got back, I shared the above review with my wife. We live in Tunbridge Wells, but we will make a special excursion to Bexhill in the near future to sample the delights of this super restaurant. In summary, if you are of a certain age this type of Italian trattoria was fairly ubiquitous in the seventies and early eighties, not so today. Hence my delight at this discovery.More

An excellent lunch at Trattoria Italiana served by very friendly, helpful staff. I had a Calzone pizza and my wife had pasta with bolognaise sauce. Both were well presented and very tasty. My wife is Gluten Free but this did not cause any problems as...there is a separate Gluten Free menu. Can certainly recommend to anyone looking for somewhere good to eat in Bexhill. However, it was very busy on the day we went so it may be advisable to book a table in advance.More

We have been visiting this restaurant on and off for close to 20 years. We are treated like family, even if its been a couple of years since our last visit. The food was as excellent, as always. The staff are friendly, attentive, thoughtful and...helped us have a truly memorable evening, whilst never being intrusive- an impressive feat. Stand out plates , from all round superb dishes,were the zucchini- always a winner and some insanely tender and delicious lamb. We really could not have had a lovelier night. Thank you to all!!More

We first visited this restaurant back on New Year’s Day. Which left us utterly disappointed and questioning our decision to return. Despite our anticipation for a delightful New Year’s Day meal out, our experience was unprofessional from the start. Upon arrival, we were greeted with...dirty glasses and cutlery—a foreboding sign of what was to come. Despite reporting this to the owner, our concerns were dismissed and blatantly ignored, leaving us feeling disrespected and undervalued as customers. Against our better judgment, we decided to give the restaurant another chance, hoping our initial experience was just an unfortunate anomaly. However, our optimism was quickly shattered when my partner discovered a metal staple in his main course. This unacceptable oversight not only compromised the quality and safety of the dish but also left us deeply concerned about the restaurant's hygiene standards. To add insult to injury, the response from the staff was lackluster at best. Instead of offering any meaningful apology or complimentary drink for the appalling experience, we were met with a "sorry about that." Before we even had the chance to take photos to report to environmental health, the waiter quickly took the staple off us! This token gesture did little to rectify the situation or restore our trust in the establishment. Regrettably, we have concluded that Trattoria Italiana does not prioritize customer satisfaction or basic hygiene standards. Despite the recommendations of friends, we have decided not to give this establishment another chance. Our dining experiences should be enjoyable and memorable for the right reasons, and unfortunately, this restaurant failed to meet even the most basic expectations. In conclusion, we cannot in good conscience recommend this restaurant to others, and we will not be returning.More

Thank goodness we did, what a lovely evening meal we had, serviced by such friendly and efficient staff. I love veal in...lemon sauce which isn’t on the menu but was told we have veal and lemons so of course you can have it. Definitely eat here.More

We come from Eastbourne regularly to have lunch here. The food is always good, I had the special blackboard King prawns with garlic Mayo, they were gorgeous...hubby had asparagus, the Penne Amatriciana is my usual go to favourite, and ravioli with spinach and ricotta was...husbands dish.
