Lovely food and good service. We enjoyed our meal here particularly given the difficulty in finding Italian food not produced by a chain. Give them a try and support local business rather than the big boys down at the Quays.

A warm welcome, modern dining-room and a choice from about ten main courses for £5.95. An a l carte was also available. One of us had canneloni verdi and the other tagliatelli with smoked salmon. They were both excellent and so filling that we couldn't manage a pudding. The wines was moderately priced. The service faultless. While we were there... More

Been meaning to go for some time as enjoy both real and modern UK Italian, but been put off by location and dated decor. Decided to try it and food decidedly bland, tasted like a packet sauce with a sliced breast of chicken added, rice like uncle bens, roasted vegetables tired. Did get gluten free so that's good. Very few... More

Visited Saturday night with my other half. It was empty and yet they still tried to sit us by the door, the service after that was amazing and the food didn't take too long, it wasn't reasonably priced I felt for what we ate. I don't think I would return.

I was in Gloucester on a rugby weekend and we decided to give Topoly's a try when we walked through the city centre looking for somewhere to eat. When we first walked in, they were full, so took my mobile number, offering to phone me when a table became available. We went for a quick drink and fair play for... More

Excellent food. Beautifully cooked and presented. The view out of the restaurant windows is that of the Via Nerva in Rome itself. Lampkin House and the Swan Hotel; Greek revival architecture. The Emperor Nerva himself would be pleased because, on his plinth, in Southgate Street, he is looking at the same buildings!

All fresh food cooked and run by a lovely Italian family! As it's all completely fresh you wait a bit longer but it is 100% worth it as you can completely tell the difference from the processed Frozen rubbish you get anywhere else. They will also remove any ingredients you don't want even in the sauces. It is like a... More

We booked here as we had read the good reviews. Our starters of mixed sea foods were fine and the Prosecco was delicious. However, our mixed seafood main courses were very disappointing. The fish was overcooked and dried up, although the quantities were enormous. The balsamic sauce was very good but it did not make up for the dry lumps... More
