Glad we found this gem. If you don't want to eat fish & chips then this is the place to go! Nice friendly staff & good Italian food. Being Italian kids are welcome & catered for, even for an evening meal. Complementi 🇮🇹

After a short wait in the bar, I was able to get a table in this very busy restaurant on a Saturday evening at around 8 o'clock. All of the staff I had dealings with, although under pressure, were polite and efficient - they looked as if accustomed to nights like that. If the food had been as good as... More

Visited here for dinner and were lucky to find a table definitely a good idea to book especially if you want an outside table. There is a lovely view of the Harbour you could be anywhere in Europe. The food is excellent. We had stuffed Portobello mushroom and prawns wrapped in Parma ham for starters with moreish garlic dough balls... More

Just went for a drink during the day, but what a lovely place with such nice staff. It's the first time I've ever ordered an elderflower presse and it has arrived with fruit in it - and then they brought some complimentary food too. Can't wait to come back again.

The presentation of the drinks were fantastic and they tasted amazing; they came in elegant glasses and were a good price. The friendly waiter gave us free croissant pieces with whipped cream and toffee sauce as a little compliment to the drinks; fantastic service, delicious food + drink and very genuine Italian feel to it! Great views too.

We needed somewhere to eat that would allow dogs, and the manageress at La Magnolia was most welcoming of "Doris" (our canine friend ) - and brought her some water out. The setting is lovely - a view across Ramsgate harbour as the sunset ! The menu is reasonably priced for great quality Italian fare - we had a selection... More

Fantastic restaurant, food is fresh, tasty and truly amazing. I had the largest lemon sole I have ever had at for once a cost I did not resent! Mum and dad ( both in their 80's) totally enjoyed themselves and it was great to see dad tuckin something we have not seen him do in a while. Beware the beer.... More

A great place to meet with family and friends with amazing food. The best pizza I've had outside of Italy and great seafood and pasta dishes. They have a gelato shop next door which serves excellent ice cream. Will definately visit again very soon
