I tried this restaurant with some job colleagues. I ordered one starter and one second course, both were fish plates. I think that when the fish is fresh and tasty, doesn't need to be filled of sauces or spices. The starter of prawns wasn't nothing special and the swordfish was totally covered of tomato sauce and black pepper, so I... More

Being dairy intolerant I am not a great fan of Italian restaurants, I'm normally stuck with a bland spaghetti bolognese and wanting to poke out the eyes of everyone eating pizza. We made an unplanned visit to Topolys at 7.30pm on a busy Friday night, and despite there being several large parties already seated we were promptly taken to a... More

We have been here before and enjoyed the food so were happy to go again the other night - what a difference! The starters were nice and a really good size. Unfortunately our favourite meal (pork fillet) was off the menu. So we went for two alternatives - they both turned out to be pretty poor quality. One was a... More

We live near the strange and scary city that is Gloucester and come reasonably often. We almost always have a cheap lunch at the Thai Blue Café (see also on this site) but found it closed today. Wandering back to the docks, we chanced on Topoly's - which, crime buffs, I believe occupies the building where Fred West once ran... More

This is a very genuine and authentic Italian restaurant. Do not expect a chain but imagine yourself in Italy. Family friendly and good food. Ate here today for first time

Small friendly restaurant serving good quality food. Service unhurried but efficient. Not the cheapest place but worth it.

Ate lunch here following a tour of the cathedral. We had pasta with pink sauce which was very good, but would have liked some bread to go along with it. The chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream for dessert was a treat on what was a warm morning before rain. The staff was very good and met our needs.

The prices here were quite reasonable and staff amazing. Great service. Food was tasty though perhaps a little sparse with the proteins in the pasta dishes.
