Favourite Italian restaurant

Topoly's is always my first choice for Italian and it recently came up trumps. Ate here with a couple of friends two weeks ago after leaving the cinema and discovering that all the restaurants in the Quays were busy. Even Blossoms was fully booked! I suggested Topoly's and we trudged up Southgate... read more

called in on way back from Gloucester docks where The Tall Ships event was taking place. All the restaurants around the docks where heaving and in some places people were queueing so we headed back to the city centre along Southgate street. This is where we came to Topoly's, which was fairly busy but we were lucky to have a... More

I've eaten in a lot of Italian restaurants and Topolys wais the worst ever, even after chains like Zizzis and Ask. Italian food is usually delicately flavoured with herbs, not drenched in garlic and I've never seen frozen chips on an Italian menu before. I felt that the food had been pre made and over heated in the microwave. My... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary as we were visiting Gloucester for an overnight stay. I booked the restaurant after viewing many good reports on trip advisors site as we always use the site before booking holidays and breaks etc: We were made to feel very welcome and the ambiance of the place...

My favourite italian restaurant, nice to go to a restaurant, especially an Italian that isn't a 'chain'. Love many of their dishes and how they cook the pasta is perfect. Will be back soon!!!

The 11.50 set menu had a lot of choice and the food was tasty and very filling. Forget rubbish like zizzi and prezzo and come here

There was little to find fault with the £11.50 set menu which is available from Sunday to Wednesday. The mixed salad starter was excellent which was followed by an adequate, if slightly dry, seafood risotto and a generous portion of vanilla ice cream. The wine list is well priced and the service was friendly and efficient. Superb value and more... More

Despite emailing a reservation the night before, and including a mobile number for confirmation, three of us arrived to a rather empty restaurant which claimed it had not seen the email. Never mind, plenty of tables to choose from. The decor was not that inspiring, and the waitresses, though friendly, could have been more professional. The meal was acceptable overall,... More
