Dined here with friends welcomed and served by friendly staff, food was enjoyed by all four in our party who choose different items from an extensive menu , good special board , lacked a bit of atmosphere music required to improve in my view , would definitely return.

Recently visited here with my girlfriend for a meal, we made a reservation prior as this place is popular. The restaurant is good - has about 10 tables. Atmosphere is nice. Price for food was pretty reasonable, £7 for starters and £10 pizzas and so on. Depends on what you want! Food was ok, nothing better than what I have... More

Some would say it's small, some would say it's intimate, but either way this is a gem. We used to go just as a couple but have taken the kids a few times and they love it as well. Foid is excellent, prices are low and you can't get a better setting than newmillerdam

Visiting my elderly parents in W Yorks, my father (in his 80's) booked for the 3 of us at this little venue. I was charmed by its location at the side of the dam, but even more impressed by how the space had been utilised. Staff were attentive and kind throughout-nothing too much. Drinks ordered were efficiently delivered. (mum asked... More

I was visiting the St Pierre Hotel with a friend last weekend and we decided to eat out. We came across this delightful little Italian. It was reasonably busy when we arrived at 8.30pm and we asked if we needed to book or if there was room for two. The waitress showed no hesitation and seated us immediately. People continued...

We have been to la Fortezza many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food and service is always excellent. Our favourite on the menu is the calzone pizzas. They are enormous!! The pizza dough is out of this world, and the pizzas are stuffed with filling - we quite often leave with a calzone takeout box!... More

Located on the Barnsley Road at the entrance to Newmillerdam Country Park this small Italian restaurant is great for a leisurely dinner and the casual atmosphere together with the quality of the dishes served was just perfect. The food was well presented with a professional look yet with that great home cooked taste and at a reasonable price. So, if... More

Lovely restaurant sat on the edge of the lake at newmillerdam. Very quaint and romantic. Food was very nice and the service was good too. Starters a bit pricey in comparison with a pasta or pizza dish but overall good value considering there's not much competition around. Definitely recommend and will be back
