Accommodating, friendly and delicious food.

The name of the restaurant doesn't immediately evoke that of a authentic Italian but the menu is extensive and you'll be sure to find something (if not a few!) things you can order. It is reasonably priced too, whereas most Italian places hike up the price due to it being a popular cuisine. We... read more

We enjoyed an excellent meal in this unassuming and charming restaurant. After sharing garlic bread and a trio of bruschettas, my wife had a lovely pizza and I tucked into one of the vegan options, spaghetti alla puttanesca, minus the anchovies. The food was fresh and colourful, bursting with flavour and well presented. Friendly and relaxed service, combined with contemporary... More

whilst the name doesn't provoke thoughts of authentic Italian the food certainly was. We booked at short notice and after a bit of juggling they accommodated our party of 6 and we were all very happy with service,price and quality.

Infusion serves authentic Italian Pizza & Pasta and they have an excellent daily deal meal which makes this place a great place to pop into for a delicious lunch or early evening meal for around £6 including a drink!! I've been here a few times and find the meals to be delicious and full of flavour.

My only quibble would be that there isn't that many vegi choices on the fixed menu. But this place is brill for anyone wanting a good meal before they go for... More

So good we went back again. We just happened upon Infusion when walking the streets of Kendal looking for somewhere to eat. We were welcomed in by very friendly staff and found a great table for 6. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent. And all was Italian. It was very relaxed and comfortable and a great... More

I picked this restaurant from Trip Advisor as my husband was doing the Coniston 14 mile race the following day and needed his pasta fix. The service was a bit slow to start (15 minutes to bring a bowl of olives was a bit too long) but once it got going, we didn't have to wait too long between courses.... More

My husband & I had a lovely meal it this restaurant on a Friday evening arriving around 7pm without a reservation, if we had been 15 minutes later we would have been disappointed. The staff were extremely attentive, ordered 2 courses & drinks, and the food was excellent, tasty, and hot! With 3 glasses of wine and a jug of... More
