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.

Fantastic food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We went here for our second wedding anniversary, a short walk from our house which makes it even better, hasd the chicken risotto for starter and the ham hock carbonara for main, both were tremendous!

First time visiting la Ricetta, read reviews before booking and booked for a family birthday, our table for five people was very squashed, I had to squeeze past three seats to sit in the corner and couldn't comfortably put my coat on the back of...the chair as there was no room. The starters were nice mixed reaction to the mains, I had the pollo ricetta which was nice, pizza could have done with more cheese, one person liked the spaghetti bolognese, the other didn't, and the other person chose something with pesto and pinenuts which was,nt to his taste. Overall pricey for a meal that was not enjoyed by all, it was nice to try it but not really for us.More

We had a really nice relaxed evening.the food was amazing, the staff were lovely. I went to Rome earlier this year and La Ricetta food was 100% nicer than what I had in restaurants there. Would definately book again. The cost was well worth paying...for service and quality.More

We were a group of 16 golfers visited this friendly Italian restaurant. We had the restaurant after 9.30 ish all to ourselves. The food was fantastic, excellent service and not too expensive. We were well looked after by Jane and Jen. Would definitely go back...if in the area.More

Visited on Saturday night as we were up from Manchester for the weekend staying with our friend Rose. What a great choice!! We were greeted warmly despite being a little late, and shown straight to our table. Drinks were ordered promptly and we were very...impressed with the quality and price of the house red. We had 2 asparagus starters between the 3 of us( they are massive and amazing!). Then we had the spaghetti gamberoni, bolognese and montradini- all were excellent and massive portions so we brought home what we couldn’t eat as they were too nice to leave! Have to mention the two young ladies waiting on, who couldn’t do enough for us ( including fetching a cushion for my husband who has hip problems and found the chair too low.) They are a credit to the restaurant- we will definitely be back next time we’re in town!!More

Cosy and intimate, our fourth visit since we discovered what was on our doorstep! Every time the service has been friendly and efficient, and the food very freshly prepared and delicious. The menu has something for everyone, from pizza and pasta dishes to roast pork,...duck , beef and veal as well as vegetarian options. Be warned that you'll need a hearty appetite to manage three courses (and I'm no lightweight). The wine list is quite extensive, and the prices reasonable, although a couple of beers and a handful of gin brands are also available. Two courses for two people, a bottle of wine and coffees cost £60. Booking essential.More

Came for a good Quality meal and left disapointed, The restaurant is in need of a refurb, the tables are shocking, old and very very sticky poor chairs also, the toilet is disgusting. The starters we had were amazing, goats cheese and the garlic mushrooms,...that where our night ended, poor mains that were that hot we couldnt eat for a good 5 minutes because they had microwaved them, no way they could be that hot off the stove, and our mains were tasteless, side of garlic breads were good tho, the deserts were ok but nothing to rave home about, We used to love coming here but it will be a while before we returnMore

Standard wheelchairs do fit through front door and there is no steps, however, assistance would be required in order to use the washroom as there is no wheelchair access.
