I must say that we went here last night, first impressions was a place that looked a bit dated, But it was nice to be able to have your meal, that let's you talk to each other without music etc, now let get to the food, I can't say that we are Italian expert's, but in our opinion the food... More

Worst Italian I have ever had, and I go to Italy on business, I asked for the seafood spaghetti and asked if it is diary free they said yes of course (being lactose intolerant), when it came up before they even put it down I said that’s got diary in it you can small it, “no we used a butter...

Been to topolys many times, i am big fan of there pollo dolcelatte with a side of chips, it's such tasty sauce. The service is spot on/faultless, so polite and friendly from the moment you walk in. Reading the rest of these reviews just doesn't seem fair. But then again you can't please everyone!! My next mission is to tackle... More

Family trip to celebrate a birthday, first impression was that it was like a tea room, however, the service was pleasant and quick, and the food was excellent given the price (£11.95 for three courses), I have paid a lot more for poorer food and service! If you can live with the decor, then decent priced good food and service.... More

Very over-rated based on reviews. A disappointing menu based on steak but no veal or calves liver on the menu - can you believe that ! Steaks are saturated in sauce and service is very amateur. Avoid...

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
