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.

Nowhere is cheap nowadays so we spent about £60 a head. The food was excellent and large portions and the waiter was great fun . Sadly there were only 2 tables occupied and they left early. We were quite a large group so we made...our own atmosphere.More

First time we ate here was after noticing it having had an utterly underwhelming experience at a fish restaurant a few doors away. The food here is really good, everything tastes very home made and no-one leaves this place hungry. The guys who run the...front of house are very attentive, and whoever the chef is does an amazing job. We love the spaghetti bolognese which I know isn't very imaginative but its one of the best we've tasted in a long time. Garlic bread with cheese is basically a pizza with melted mozzarella and completely addictive. I think the prices are more than fair for what you get. Only been twice but will continue working our way through the menu....More

I came across this restaurant while looking on Trip Advisor for a good local restaurant for an evening meal out, and given the great reviews decided to visit. We weren't disappointed. The waiter was courteous and attentive, telling us about the specials board when he...bought the menus over. I had the bruschetta starter which was just as it should be - lots of fresh tomatoes on a garlicy piece of toasted bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Lovely. The star of the show was the sea bream, delicious fillets with a tomato, olive and caper sauce. I was too full for a desert but my friend ordered the tiramisu - they must have known I couldn't resist a taste as they bought an extra spoon! This is a lovely, cosy, traditional Italian restaurant and I can highly recommend a visit.More

What can I say but superb? We hadn't visited Calabrese for at least five years so, although I had some idea of what to expect, the restaurant exceeded our expectations. We went out to celebrate our 30th (pearl) wedding anniversary on a quiet Sunday evening....There were a few other diners and our excellent starters - melanzana calabrese and bruschetta - certainly delivered freshness and quality and arrived swiftly. The service was both attentive and friendly. Moving onto the mains, I had a pizza ortolana and my wife had the pollo funghi e asparagi (chicken with mushrooms, asparagas in a brandy and cream sauce) which she said was delicious. Normally, I would consider something from a fresh pasta menu but the meat-free options here were limited to just two (one of which included chillis of which I'm intolerant) so I had to consider the pizzas instead. I would suggest offering a ribbon pasta with a cheesy, mushroom sauce and we told the waiter this. It's rare that we pass on desserts in Italian restaurants - I really have to try their tiramisu as a matter of course - so we went for the tiramisu and banoffee. Again, they duly delivered. As we concluded our meal, the chef came out to say hello and to thank us for dining there. We discussed other local Italian restaurants and I said his food was well ahead of whatever they could offer. He was most appreciative. In conclusion: the food is great, the service impeccable and the bill reasonable. It's handy for Norbiton station, Kingston Hospital and several bus stops. Free parking can be had close-by too. Most recommended.More
