Excellent food

Lobster ravioli was the best homemade pasta. Exceptional pizzas. Service was good even though very busy. Couldn't fault it.

Spending a week-end in Ramsgate we were looking for a good meal in the evening and chose la Magnolia based on reviews. We though that a well established, family run Italian restaurant with a passion for good food was a safe bet but we were wrong. The location is good, the service is good and the place is buzzing, staffed... More

From the outside it looks old fashioned, and not very inviting. However, inside is very clean and utilises the small rooms to the max. We had at first decided to have an outside table, to take advantage of the fantastic view over the Harbour. But despite the overhead heaters, were forced inside. Our waiters were very attentive, and rushed around... More

awful : great location but the food was bad. Greasy and poor quality. Service was nothing special. Can't understand where the good reviews have come from....????? To top it all the food was expensive.

Eaten there twice now and will definitely go again before we leave. The staff are friendly and very efficient and the food is delicious and plentiful. Try the lobster if it's on the specials board, could not fault. Lovely spot also looking over the harbour.

We were lucky to get a table as they were VERY busy! But our waiter was not coping very well he could not cope! The female waitress was more helpful but was not doing our table. We had a pizza it was a bit soggy and over loaded with topping which is not very Italian.

Great food, fresh ingredients used. Well priced for the freshness. Good selection of drinks. Intimate setting but does cater for groups. Recommend booking at weekends. Stunning views of the harbour and seafront. The road below is not an issue when sat outside. Lovely staff :-) a favourite of ours x
