4 of us ate here, the service was really slow, waited a long time for order to be taken. Starter arrived quickly then the waiting set in! Food okay across the board but too pricey to recommend coming back for. Other odd things include: Warm beer ( fridge not stocked up- sorry!) When asking if I would make my pasta... More

Decided to have a "proper" lunch this visit to Gloucester and as my companion had been here a while back we gave family run restaurant a go. The service was welcoming, friendly & efficient. The food was delicious, I'd definitely recommend the "Tagliatelle Topoly". We hadn't intended having a desert but when one was described to us we just couldn't... More

Obviously an authentic Italian restaurant and the menu choices were good, also good value for money and good service. Must say though that the Risotto was quite horrible and basically crunchy rice in water - not a typical risotto. So far that I'm scoring 3 out of 5.

We went to Toploys last night for a meal and drinks. It was busy but the staff were so attentive. Very authentic Italian food, we shared 2 starters, had mains and shared one pudding between us. I highly recommend the beef stroganoff and the vanilla cheese cake is to die for! We left a £10 tip for the impeccable service.... More

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
