Before we book an hotel or restaurant We often look at the one-star reviews to get a little comparison. They are often from people who have never reviewed before so really suspect, or didn't actually stay or eat so just a bit miffed by a minor failure. Topolys is a case in point and the recent one star review is... More

The fish salad starter smelled off and we sent it back. The avocado and prawn salad was edible but tired. The mushroom risotto was awful the worst I have ever eaten. The spaghetti bolognese was ok. The service was ok The waitress was behind counter on her phone. Unacceptable l would think. Would not go back there.

I love the food and welcome at Topolys. Our last visit was on a Friday evening. We had Brushetta al Funghi and Funghi all 'Aglio to start followed by Beef Stroganoff and Penne Arrabiata, washed down by a very good Valpolicella. I have read other reviews, and whilst respecting everyone having differing opinions, can't believe that the cuisine at Topolys... More

I haven't been to Gloucester many times so I don't know the general standard of restaurants but this was apparently the best rated Italian in Gloucester. If that is the case I wouldn't like to eat in the worst. The food on offer, whilst perfectly edible, would have been considered old fashioned and mediocre in the 1980's. It feels like... More

My wife and I has a most enjoyable lunch today. Our tagliatelle were superb. I had mine with crispy smoked salmon and broccoli florets in a white wine sauce. Absolutely delicious! Followed by our americano with hot milk with real Italian coffee. Really good, and we'll be back!

Had not booked but was made very welcome. We ordered four different pasta main courses which all four of us found excellent. The home made Tirimasu was to die for. Would definitely return on next visit to Gloucester.

Doing some last minute Christmas shopping we wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful to have lunch. For the 3rd year running we have ended up in Topolys. The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Even though we turned up close to closing time they still made us feel welcome and didn't rush as we eat our lunch.... More
