Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant in the old town of Tallinn, and we absolutely loved it! The food was amazing; we’ve never had such delicious food in our lives. It’s simply a wonderful blend of a fantastic atmosphere and the best food. The...service deserves special attention. The staff and waiters perform their jobs perfectly. We especially wanted to commend the work of the waiter Mikhail Boriskin. He is a very good, kind, and friendly waiter, and he did his job perfectly; the service was magical. We would like to once again thank the chefs, waiters, and all the staff of this restaurant. You made our day much better than it was. A special thanks to Mikhail for the numerous smiles he brought us!!! I recommend everyone to visit this restaurant, and we will definitely come here as often as possible! I hope you also get such a wonderful waiter like Mikhail.More

We wanted to eat pizza for dinner and La Prima was highly rated. The staff were very friendly. We walked in without reservations. We were given complimentary Prosecco. Wow! Our server was so kind to ask the chef to make us a spicy salami pizza...(husband wanted only pepperoni) They were very kind to oblige. The pizza was the best pizza we had in all of our European trips (that’s over 20 years!) . I loved it and even ate the crust which I never do. We also had a green salad and it was the best salad during our trip throughout our 10 day Scandinavian vacation. Highly recommend La Prima if going to Tallinn. Close to old Town, less than 10 minute walk from Hotel Telegraf.More

My birthday dinner turned out to be a complete disaster at this place. I deeply regret choosing it. The loud music was unbearable, and to make matters worse, they seated us right next to a noisy fountain, making it impossible to hear the waiter. The...pasta was undercooked and served in such small portions that it felt like an appetizer, which might be acceptable for drinkers who like to chat and chill , but not for us. To add insult to injury, they usually offer complimentary wine since we don’t drink they offered us non-alcoholic options, which they ran out of after just one glass. We visited another branch last month where the pizza was fantastic, but here, the menu changes after 5 pm to fancier options. What if customers prefer simple pizza? Overall, this place is both overpriced and overhyped. I wouldn't recommend it; it felt like a rip-off. Plus, to top it all off, the waiter sneezed right next to our table.More

We came here for pizzas and they were very good. After 5PM there is only Gourmet pizza menu available. For vegetarians it was disappointment because there was only one option to choose from. Also to kids the sausage pizza was weird option. So we recommend...to visit this restaurant before 5PM because there is more pizza options available.More
