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 found the pasta in the spaghetti bolognese to be over cooked and it needed a little more seasoning. The pasta in the Boscaioli was also over cooked and under seasoned. The 2 pizzas we ordered were delicious and the garlic bread was also delicious.

After writing a glowing review of Ricks in 2014, I was interested to see if they still served quality food, with the intention of becoming a regular customer. I rang to order a Large Pizza and Wedges but it took 3 calls to actually get...the order placed and that should have been a warning. The wedges turned out to be nothing more than chips and the pizza was black as charcoal. Could not eat more than one piece of it as it made me feel sick. I have had one or two quite ordinary pizzas served to me over the years from various places but nothing as bad as this one. After complaining to the store, they offered to replace the pizza but rudely said I ordered chips not wedges. As if I'd order chips if wanting wedges. Unbelievably bad service and never again.More

In the eight years of being a continuing customer I have never had a bad experience at Ricks On Don. Salads are freshly prepared. The Pizza's have always been tasty and filling. Have taken many friends there, and a lot of them are now returning...customers as well. Can't understand some of the negative reviews? The only thing is sometimes eat in customers have to wait a bit longer, as the kitchen is overwhelmed by take away orders. You can then enjoy the many quips Rick has hanging on the restaurant walls; always good for a laugh.More

After travelling all day, decided to order pizza for delivery. Paid the extra $5 charge for delivery. Person on phone was very hard to talk to. Was not easy to place order. Was told it would take 45 to 60 minutes. After waiting 90 minutes,...rang again to find out where our order was. Had only just left shop. Pizzas were average at best. It was definitely not worth the wait. Will not be getting pizzas from here again. Definitely not good value for money. Very overpricedMore

Spicy jalapeño prawn pasta is top notch here, way better than most other Italian restaurants. Recently their starters are becoming even more delicious. Just been there yesterday but planning to make another visit here next weekend although it’s an one hour drive from Launceston

Pizza takeaway night for the family. Two family pizzas and a medium pizza was more than enough for 4 people. Hawaiian and Aussie pizzas ok , but the Fisherman pizza was very good. Will most likely have another pizza night from here.

We stopped in here after looking for a non-chain type pizza place. The girl serving was extremely polite and a great conversationalist, really made us smile. We placed our order and she got told that there would be a 1-hour wait for the pizzas due...to high demand, however they took our phone number and told us they would call us when the pizzas went in the oven so that we could go away and sight-see some more rather than sitting around waiting. The hour went really fast as we explored some more of Devonport. They did indeed call us and we arrived back to piping hot pizzas. THEY TASTED AMAZING!!!! Not your typical pizza flavours but boy were they yummy. We had the Tandoori and the Malaysian pizzas on GF bases. We enjoyed it so much we nearly called back in there again on our trip south a few days later!More

dinner with a bunch of friends. whilst the menu looked fairly extensive, the food was plain and fairly bland. we ordered naan bread to share, which was extremely oily and chewy (wouldn't call it authentic naan). the pasta was thick and overcooked, although the sauce...was reasonably tasty. friends who ordered pizzas were also disappointed; although generously topped they were overly oily.More
