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.

We spent over £50 and were all violently ill the next day! I contacted the restaurant the day after to speak to the manager and lodged a complaint online. I received... More
