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.

Delicious pizza. Great service. Happy to accomodate requests without hassle. Would highly recommend. The outside seating with the heaters in is fantastic for those with kids!

Family of 12 visited this restaurant on the 15 March. Service was very off hand, the waiter who served us was miserable and unfriendly. My pizza was lukewarm. I asked for it to be reheated which it was but the waiter was insistent that it...had just come out of the oven and couldn't possibly be cold! I would not recommend this restaurant to other family and friends who live in the area.More

This score does not reflect the food.. This was sooo good, pasta with prawns and asparagus, and pizza. Very nice , but not offered with any condiments eg, parmesan or pepper, The staff were very inattentive, pizza was delivered incorrectly twice, without care or apology....We asked to take remaining pizza home, so a box was slammed down in table! Waiter then took remaining plates away, snapped his fingers and pointed at excess cutlery, demanding fork!!! for removal! Very disappointing as food was lovely!More

Authentic Italian right here in Torquay. All the staff are from Italy, and all you can hear coming from the kitchen is lots of noise and people speaking Italian. The food is superb, same as you would expect going to Naples or Rome.

At the last minute we booked for a family of 11 on a Saturday night. The place was busy, but the service was very good and there were no complaints from the group. Some meals seemed a bit pricey compared to others but if it...is good you don't mind. A good experience all around. Would go back.More

We ordered bruschetta which came on a pizza base and was layered with tomatoes, prosciutto and cheese it was delicious ....The service is friendly despite how busy they are with sit in service and take always.More

We haven't been for a few years due to a dreadful experience with a large group booking. Things haven't changed: food tasteless, staff and management didn't care. We won't be back.

My husband and I dined here this evening. Staff were friendly and professional. Our meals were delicious. I had Ossobuco and my husband had a Pizzolo - warning a very generous serve. Tiramisu was also enjoyable. A special thank you to staff member Linda, all...the way from Bologna Italy. Would dine here again.More

I'm sorry but my words can not express how much this restaurant has left such an impact on us. From the staff that made us feel like family from the moment we stepped inside, to the choices on the menu and not sure what to...pick as everything looked amazing, to the lovely young waitress that helped us decide and the choices were mouth watering. This is not just a restaurant it's an experience.More

Licensed but it might pay to BYO based on our experience of having to wait 45 minutes for our glasses of wine and water to arrive - and after asking again.
