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.

xmas day lunch . well I am sorry to say we did not enjoy it but didnt feel we could say anything with it being xmas and we knew lots of people there . Also the family who own and run it are lovely but...the meal was not up to standard . it was processed pre cut turkey with one frozen soggy yorkshire . the turkey was cold with a bit of gravy . the veg was rock hard as not been microwaved enough. I had ravioli which was with a pink sauce and tasted odd . like ketchup . starters also poor but the best bit was the cold pre made rice pudding and pre cut slice of xmas pudding with condensed milk . I am saddened by the whole meal we wer enot even offered teas or coffees and we noticed same with other parties . also most sent there veg back .More

First time here but won't return. Came as a pre-Christmas treat family of 3. Seated promptly and offered drinks. Menu order given and seemed to wait ages on starter. People seated after us got their orders first. Starter was reasonable but very filling. Calamari seemed...overcooked and was rubbery. Pate was very dry. We all had different mains but tasted some from each plate. The meatballs appeared extremely soft and a bit tasteless. Definitely not fresh and may have been frozen amd defrosted. Spaghetti bolagnaise was very mushy. Everything very overpowered with garlic (not unexpected in an Italian but this was over the top). Meals was just over £30 person (including very over priced bottles of soft drinks) but not worth it. Not sure if coincidence, but all 3 of us barely slept due to sore stomachs and have been unable to eat anything following day.More

We were stopping by for lunch as we were on our way to our next hotel. There was Italian music playing. To my partners joy they played a song by Laura Pausini, which he loves. The staff member that took us to our table and...served our table was very kind and helpful. We both had the tomato soup to start, which was good. Then my partner ordered the lasagne and I ordered the gluten free version of the pasta bolognese with parmesan. It didn’t come with spaghetti but I was informed about that beforehand and I didn’t mind. Instead it came with penne pasta. It tasted great and we really enjoyed our meal here. Every bite was incredible and the service here was great! It was just what we needed. Thank you :)More

We visited this restaurant for the first and last time as it was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to treat him. At the time of booking (online) there was an option to give them additional information and I entered that it was my husband’s...birthday. On arrival the restaurant was empty and I told who I assumed was the person in charge that we had a reservation. He checked his computer and indicated that the waitress would show us to our table, she walked in front of us put menus on a table and walked away! No can I take your coats or even move a chair out. We had to put our coats over our chair and sit down, after about 10 minutes the person in charge asked what we wanted to drink and also took our meal order. After around 15 minutes we received our drinks, they had been poured for about 10 minutes and were sitting on the bar whilst they both had an extensive conversation. Shortly afterwards the starters arrived. I ordered bruschetta I was a very large portion but I couldn’t eat most of it as in my opinion it was old stale bread that had been toasted, I couldn’t get my knife through it, I could only eat the middle and that was due to the fact it was saturated in olive oil and the garlic was quite overpowering. I love garlic but this was too much on a starter. My husband had arancini which found dry and in his opinion consisted of the wrong type of rice. The waitress just lifted our plates away didn’t ask if all was okay and continued her conversation with the person in charge. Our main course arrived my husband said that his tagliatelle papalina was okay although the portion size was quite small. I had the fusilli con Gorgonzola and was struggling to taste the cheese, the walnuts were whole and too many. During the main course I requested another soft drink, again this took an age, as they were chatting and inattentive. I actually had to ask the waitress to bring it off of the bar, she had forgotten about it, my meal was nearly finished. Again plates were cleared and no opinions were asked for on the meal. I requested our bill, it arrived with 2 sweets one of which looked like it had been taken out of the wrapper sooked and put back in. I pointed this out to the waitress and she said she would get me another one as it looked disgusting and she wouldn’t eat it, I told her not to bother. Even as we were leaving we we not asked if we enjoyed our meal or making any reference to my husband’s birthday. It has been a very long time since we have had such poor service and customer care and the food was so disappointing. I always like to support local businesses, however, I would not return to this restaurant.More

Get the train to Edinburgh and save yourself some money. Food alright, service poor and prices to make your eyes water. It's a choice thing but I'll choose to go somewhere else next time.

Nothing on menu other than salad and bruscetta was vegan! Very disappointing! Even the tomato sauce is pre-made with eggs so I couldnt even have that. No vegan pizza either. Disappointing and obviously won’t come back. You should at least have something vegan to offer...people!!More

Enjoyed our food but it was very expensive. Meat free small bowls of pasta, £15 each. £9 for a small bottle of Prosecco. The lunchtime menu previously offered for years has disappeared since lockdown so serving A'la carte only. Why I wonder.... ££££ Charging city...prices in Bathgate for small portions of pasta is unacceptable. Won't visit again due to the cost. £60 for 2 small bowls of pasta, 2 Prosecco and a diet coke for lunch on a Saturday afternoon! No thanksMore

Just disgusting. From the staff, the managers, the food, everything is frozen. Managers steal tips. Not worth the money you pay for the food your getting when you can make it FRESH yourself for so much cheaper. Money grabbers. Slave drivers. Managers bit creepy, one...of the senior managers are very aggressive when things don’t go his way. Overall shambles. AVOID!!More

Not sure what the problem was on this visit? ?not enough staff? Over booked? Whatever the reason this the first time we have had a poor experience having eaten here numerous times. The table was sticky to the touch and even the napkins stuck to...it? The wait for food was excessive and was just ok when it was presented? Come on Liberta you are so much better than this!More
