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.

This charming little restaurant is relaxed, convivial and has a large menu of authentic Italian dishes offering much more than your usual pizza and pasta! Plenty of choice for vegetarians. We will return for more!

First time here with a family party of 8. We couldn’t have been more pleased. Service by Maurizio was great and the food was just perfect. All of our family members had nothing but praise. Maurizio was very happy to allow us to bring a...cake in as it was my wife’s birthday, and even brought it out to us before the dessert menu arrived, which I thought was very decent indeed. So if for no other reason than to show my appreciation I forced a chocolate fudge cake and ice cream down!!! It was delicious. Thanks Maurizio for hosting us. Definitely a place I shall be telling my friends about and I look forward to returning - AndyMore

My friend and I visited Strawberry Hill House and then walked down the road to Dolce Vita for lunch. Excellent food enjoyed with a good bottle of red wine, nice friendly atmosphere and we enjoyed meeting and talking with the owner.

As always Maurizio was a wonderful friendly host for this birthday lunch. The food was fantastic as always - fettuccini with mushroom and speck particularly delicious, pizzas tasty and desserts great.
