This restaurant is close to the theatre. The menu includes many ravioli dishes and excellent tagliotelli. We were a party of five people and every dish was excellent. Ths puddings were great too. The restaurant could be much improved by better lighting even if it were just candles on the tables. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

I have visited a number of Italian restaurants in the Wakefield and Leeds area and this was right up there with the best of them. Very friendly staff, a lovely atmosphere but most important beautiful food. We will certainly be returning. Free parking opposite after 6pm and only 80p per hour before that for people who might be put off... More

I go to Italian restaurants often and this is one of the best in Wakefield if not the best. Service is fab. The food is gorgeous and the wine menu is great. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing.
