I have been many times and it is still my favourite Italian. This evening we ate outside as the weather was glorious. Pleasant staff, good company and stunning food.

Family meal suggested by my son in law on our visit to Yorkshire. A great setting and whilst small was still comfortable. Faultless service varied menu and must visit for any one visiting Wakefield. Only slight issue no pinot Grigio blush by the glass! Unusual...More
