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.

After having been here often and recommending this place to soo many international friends I was appalled at yesterday’s experiment.. I arrived there at 16:05 and asked if I could take out a pizza. After waiting for a bit I was told in not a...very nice way that the kitchen closed at 16:00 and that if I hadn’t ordered I should scatter because they were very busy.. Which is true and all the cooks in the kitchen open to all to see were busy but still cooking.. so okay, tell me in a friendly way and I will be disappointed but no need to tell me off, I wasn’t being very demanding.. It’s so very sad to see that places like this that are successful start going more for Quantum and not Quality.. Not sure if I’ll be back.. I live in the area.. certainly won’t recommend anymore. Si es que lo lean.. Si es así ya un. Viernes de Mayo que supongo que era question de communiones o algo así.. pero que se preparen para el verano. Yo era de los que volvía fuera de temporada..More

Lovely atmosphere and decor and really lovely friendly and welcoming staff. We went on a Friday night and the place was busy. We were a family group and had a selection of starters, mains and desserts. All faultless - pastas are delicious. Seafood pastas and...truffle & mushroom ravioli special all awesome. Great little place. Worth a visit.More

The food is very good, and decor excellent, but the past few times there has been a definite chaotic atmosphere. Chips came when meal was almost finished. Had to chase for drinks 3 times. Waiters were literally running around to meet demand.

Scabetti is a favourite when I visit the Mar Menor/La Manga region. On 2 recent visits, I was disappointed. My issues pertain to a “90 minute” table turnaround. On our first visit, we waited 10mins + for our order to be taken, then 15mins+ for...them to arrive. Another 20mins for our mains. When these were cleared, we were asked if we wanted desserts but chose to have a drink instead. We then paid the bill and settled to enjoy our drink. We were approached by the check in person from the door advising us that our 90mins were up and we needed to vacate the table. We had just received our drinks and weren’t offered an alternative space to enjoy our drink. At this stage we were not aware of this 90mins restriction as we had booked in person at the door the previous evening and had not been advised of same. Our 2nd experience was similar except 1 starter arrived promptly, with the second arriving 10 mins later. When we queried 5mins later re the 3rd starter, we were advised the kitchen forgot it and it would arrive with our mains which were then ready. 1 starter finished, 1 starter half eaten, when 3 mains plus the forgotten starter arrived. We asked for 1 main to be kept warm while the 2nd starter was finished. All empty main plates were left on the table for 15mins and when cleared, we were offered the dessert menu. When we queried if we had time for a dessert as we were approaching 90 mins, our waiter returned to say we had 10 mins left at the table. We chose to finish and pay the bill. The restaurant was full on both nights and waiting staff were under pressure but remained courteous throughout. But sadly, I won’t be rushing to return as our group felt while the food was excellent, the time of delivery and the rushed exit took from what was previously a lovely “Scabetti” experienceMore

Having supported this restaurant through thick and thin over the last 25 years, I booked a table for dinner on Wednesday 20th September in the lounge and confirmed by telephone When we arrived we were told the table was outside by the road. We pointed...out that we had booked in the lounge but the response was that is your table take it or leave it and moved on to the next client It seems now Pepe has left so has the customer service. A place we and many friends no longer feel comfortable visiting againMore

Excellent variety of dishes, specials and great atmosphere in 3 distinct dining areas. Been 3 times now and all dishes tried by our party have always been first class, fresh and very tasty. Certainly not your average Italian ! Tonight the team excelled with our...waiter running down the street afterwards to return my old but sentimental charm I had dropped. Thank You ! Highly recommend a visit.More

Great location for an evening out, we went on a Wednesday as it opened at 7, by 7.30 it was packed …. Mid week ! and we soon learnt why, really great food, very good service and a great atmosphere. Two had the lasagne, one...of the best for a while, the other two myself included went for the specials, both were brilliant . The house wine is good (Red and White). An overall great experience we will be going again soon. Meal for 4 with drinks €130 and worth every cent.More

Although I like this restaurant and think the food is nice, they do not pick up their phone. You leave a message and they don't get back to you. I understand you are busy, but if you are that busy, get a booking system on...your webpage and let people reserve online. Or do whatever you need to do, but not picking ng up the phone and not replying to messages is just rude and your customers, including me, will go elsewhere.More
