Had a very nice meal here husband had steak which was well cooked and I had pizza which was freshly made and very nice. I prefer the food here to Capri and it is a lot cheaper. Highly recommend this place.

But this place is an absolute gem. Great staff, great atmosphere & amazing food. Priced very reasonably. Next time we are in Wakefield we will be... More

Ate at this restaurant in 2015 during the summer when the town was buzzing. Food great, authentic Italian but the staff just exceptional. No holes barred on time and effort spent with all their customers down to explaining the menus and wines to offering guidance around Wakefield and what to see if you have never been before. So enjoyed our... More

Went here on a Sunday just before 7pm and it was reasonably busy. The staff were friendly and attentive and the service was quick. Our food was lovely. My son and I had chicken in breadcrumbs with garlic sauce both with a side order of chips which were served with skins on and were delicious. My daughter chose a cannelloni... More

Love the atmosphere too and the new decor is great. Only criticism is the price for a glass of pop we had two glasses each and the bill... More

A good choice of freshly cooked Italian food - the 'house' risotto is particularly good. Reasonably priced wine list and friendly and attentive service.

A friends birthday was booked for 10 people. The staff are very friendly and the service is very good. There are free garlic/tomato pizza's olives and bread to eat while waiting for your food. Food is very good with plenty to choose from and a menu of the day board. When ordering drinks with the staff just be very clear... More
