Just gets better and better....

Always the family favourite we were back again on Saturday night and had another amazing evening. Absolutely gorgeous monk fish special and seafood pasta. The children ploughed through garlic bread and spag bol almost without a word! Then stuffed as we were we opted for the special desert too, it... read more

I have been recommended to this restaurant by many people. I wasn't blown away if I'm honest. It was quite expensive, and the chicken on top of "pizza nick" was frozen precut part cooked dry and tasteless. Probably won't go back

Used to use once or twice a month, prices went up, but quality and service declined, friends liked the place so we agreed to try again, prices had gone up, but still no where near what it used to be for value and quality, very sad but there are so many choices out there now.

My son decided that we should have an Italian meal out and my wife and I decided not to go to Pizza Express so we thought we'd try somewhere new. What a great choice, we all (5 of us) had the most delicious meals. The food was great, the service quick and very accommodating for our two youngsters - they... More

If I'd bumped into La Magnolia in Rome I would not be surprised, except that the majority of restaurants I've been to in Rome are not anything like as perfect. I have been here four times this month. (I know...addicted by their stunning woodfired pizzas and garlic spinach!) Portions are great, service has been impeccable. Go and enjoy this fabulous... More

Pizzas are authentic and delicious, have been here four times in recent weeks and each visit was a joy. The staff are attentive and helpful without being fussy and the food is superb - if it's on the specials menu, try the mozzarella in truffle cream :o)

Over priced for what it is: nothing remarkable in terms of taste and quality. You can probably do much better by looking for restaurants that are based in the town because the high prices are only a reflection of the location IMO.

My husband and I travelled across from Hampshire to join a large family celebration on Easter Sunday. We actually live in Italy for part of the year and also have family living in Campania. It's not often we taste the true flavours of the area outside of the region but we were amazed by the food at La Magnolia. There... More

Visited for our wedding anniversary, booked online and received prompt and polite reply, free glass of bubbly on our arrival. Food was amazing...If I had to find a fault, I was a little disappointed with the fries, but will not sway from a 5 🌟 review because everything else was beyond perfect...Thank you everyone
