I went with a friend for a meal and it was really lovely. The staff were very attentive and as we took a chance & didn't book a table they squeezed us in and the food was absolutely gorgeous!

I've read many of the other reviews here and cannot understand the positive comments. I can only speak as I find. I visited with my partner earlier this evening and had a very disappointing evening to say the least. Overall the food was ok if a little bland although the wine as recommended by the head waiter was very good.... More

A table of 5 of us went for a meal, it's never a good start when they bring out a free appetiser from the main menu, macaroni cheese with beetroot on top... It didn't taste good that's all we're say. Out of the 5 sample pieces only 2 were touched it was that bad and we were all hungry. We... More

On a recent visit to Ramsgate, we descovered La Magnolia restaurant. Being lovers of all things italian we usually head for this kind of restaurant for a special night out. We were not disappointed! We were greeted at the door by a very friendly waitress and were shown to our seat. The menu was extensive and our meals were first... More

First try here found the food very poor not the Italian food we was expecting but more like a fast food outlet, overpriced compared to the excellent restaurant nearby, service was ok and that was the best part of this evening. No plans to return.

Dropped in for lunch and found the place pretty full. Very welcoming staff and some excellent and authentic Italian food. Pizzas are particularly good as they're cooked in a brick oven. Very reasonably priced and a nice location overlooking the harbour.

This is not a real Italian restaurant. They seem to use cheap produce. I really didn't enjoy my meal, I won't be returning

We attended a birthday dinner here, the staff were polite and very accommodating, the food was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere as we over looked the harbor. Such a pleasant experience and will definitely be visiting again. Recommend to all who love the Italian cuisine.

I was so so impressed with the main meal and the service in this restaurant! I had the lobster ravioli which was so delicious, and the seafood was so good. Most impressed that they kept the roe on the scallops, not a lot of places tend to do that outside NZ! Took a wine recommendation from the waiter which was... More
