A Los Angeles woman is fighting back against what she and her husband allege is harassment from a local restaurant, following a negative Yelp review.

According to a news report from last night’s Fox 11 LA, a woman named Bridget is alleging that Glendale restaurant Trattoria Allegria has been harassing her with phone calls ever since she posted a negative yelp review about the place on Sunday. She even posted a series of phone logs to Yelp to prove her point, showing a slew of incoming calls with a number that matches the one listed for Trattoria Allegria.

The restaurant, for its part, denied to Fox that they had anything to do with the calls. The news team even contacted Yelp, who confirmed that restaurants don’t have access to the full names or phone numbers of those who leave reviews.

Still, it’s an odd situation all around, and one that now has the police involved. The husband reportedly approached management at the restaurant directly at one point (as seen on their security footage) regarding the threatening calls, and have now filed a police report.
