“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

First visit to this restaurant and was tempted by the outside chalk board menu. We had a fantastic lunch of sea bass - the best that we have ever tasted. The presentation was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Recommended to all.

“Ma's Pizza & Pasta”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

My review says terrible, but there is no provision for comment without rating first. Come on Trip advisor get this website working correctly.
You need to update this.
Now a new restaurant. It's up to the new Company to advertise.
I shall visit and give you my review, unless some one else gets there before me

“Refurbished restaruant - previously Ma's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I've visited this restaurant many times before when it was Ma's.
It had a refurb in the New Year and been renamed Ginali's - much better name and more suiting to the restaurant.
The restaurant is alot nicer inside now but thankfully the quality of the food hasn't changed at all! It's still just as scrummy and reasonably priced and without doubt my favourite place to eat in Poole. I wouldn't go to any other Italian there now.

“Favourite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I have been here many times and thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere relaxed and tasty to eat. The atmosphere fits perfectly for any groups of people: families, couples and big groups!
The specials board always has great options and the waitresses are quick and helpful.
Overall a brilliant restaurant that is often overlooked.
