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.

I just had to write a review about Etzios. It was our 4th visit and we were having a birthday celebration. I can honestly say from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble. The staff are all so...friendly, service impeccable and the food...well...we could not fault it in any way. Absolutely delicious and satisfying . You really are the best 👌 and we can't wait to return. Thank you ❤️More

We were here for a birthday celebration and a group of four. We unfortunalely arrived late for our booking but the staff were un-phased and welcoming. We chose from the lunch special menu and the portions were generous, freshly prepared and delicious. We also had...desserts which were yummy and so much choice too. When I produced a birthday cake the staff were happy to bring plates and knife etc for us. The staff were lovely and the excellent food speaks for itself. My first visit but not my last!More

What a fabulous find. We have recently moved to the area, having booked ahead we were looking forward to a nice lunch at Etzio. It did not disappoint. Attentive & friendly service, made to feel really welcome. A wonderful menu & we were spoilt for...choice. Our food was delicious, generous portions & fresh ingredients so we both throughly enjoyed. All the team clearly take pride in everything they do, and work very hard, thank you, we had a lovely lunch.

Just wow from start to finish! Visited with my husband for my birthday at lunchtime. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in a long time. The food, the team, the surroundings exceeded all expectation. We chose a pasta dish from...the excellent value lunch menu which included a drink. The other menus offer an extensive choice. There is a reason you need to book! We would love to come back and bring family and friends despite being a 50 mile round tripMore

What an absolute delight and pleasure to be able to return to Etzio and find that absolutely nothing has altered, and why should it, it's just perfect as it is which is why you need to book well in advance. On walking in you are...greeted by friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble, the atmosphere is always amazing with low background music with an Italian theme and this is before you get to devour their menu. We have worked our way through the menu over the years and everything has been absolute perfection so this time a little 'off-piste' and went for one of the the Chef Specials on offer, the Crayfish & Prawn starter and the Lobster Ravioli . Beautifully presented with a small salad of pea shoots & leaves, and some warm toast the starter was absolutely beautiful, the flavours mixed with the home made 'marie rose', just perfection. BUT the lobster, goodness me, I could have licked the plate with the wonderfully rounded sauce which when finished off with a little prosecco just gave it that extra 'pizzazz'. Oh, maybe I should mention my husband's pizza who commented that "It was most definitely the best he has ever had" and that's because their pizza's are done in the Rome Style, Light, crispy and once again with an amazing choice of toppings - definitely no soggy bottom pizza's here. Always an amazing experience and absolute pleasure to eat here, one for everyone's 'bucket list'. Well done once again to Jo, Claudio and the Team at Etzio.More
