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.

Small restaurant so would recommend booking in advance. Nice interior and good atmosphere, but I felt the booths were a bit cramped for 4 adults. Service is friendly but could be more attentive. I ordered a goat cheese and pear salad. What a shame it...only contained 3 bits of each and the rest were leaves. My mushroom and sausage pizza was underwhelming too, but my partner's pizza with gorgonzola was very nice !More

This restaurant is good value anyway, but we went on 'Wine Down Wednesday' when it's even better value. We always have a good time here. It's relaxed, with great ambience and the food is always delicious; fresh, authentic and with great ingredients. Lovely staff too.

Visited on Saturday lunchtime, and had the Massima sharing board. Having visited several times before and really enjoyed this, we were a little worried that the cost of living crisis might have affected the quality, we should not have done so,it was still really excellent...with wonderful charcuterie, breads, cheeses and other accompaniments. We followed this with the home made tiramisu and the Italian Crostata, both of which were excellent. Have no hesitation in recommending this place to others, it is a real gem.More

Located a short walk away from east Croydon train station. Friendly welcome. Interior in the darker side with nice lighting and some reminiscent of Valentine’s Day with love hearts stuck to the walls. Had the negroni- was good. The weekly pizza special which was burrata...and mortadella which is put on after the pizza is done. Only issue is that it was rather tasteless- Could have more seasoning/ flavouring. Pizza base was good. Tiramisu was good. Was overcharged for the negroni and had to get it amended. Dinner- in and out in an hour.More

Always wanted to try B&G as have walked past many times. So glad we made the effort to come in today. We had a cured meat and cheese platter and a veggie pizza. Both absolutely delicious and the house wines to go with were great....£14 lunch deal each. Such good value. Finished with some coffee. Will 100% be coming againMore

Visited here with a friend and decided to do their £35 Wednesday deal. If you spend £35 on food you get a free bottle of wine, which we opted for. We chose a bottle of Rose and the wine is now one of my new...favourites. We chose a large selection of foods, Fig Jam & Goats cheese on toast, Bruscetta, Olives, Garlic Bread, Pizza & Salads. Service was friendly and helpful, food arrived in good time. Everything we ordered I really liked, the Fig Jam was new to me but I loved it! We thought for all the food and wine we managed to get for £35 was great value, there was an added service charge, so this brought the bill to just over £40 but for just over £20 each we thought it was great! Hidden gem in Croydon!More
