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

Very busy restaurant so advise you book. They were turning people away! The food was very good and not to expensive I had pasta and my husband had pizza and they were £9.50 each. Extensive wine list. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is used by the locals and that's always a good sign. Some reviews could put you... More

Advisable to book due to limited space which creates an intimate atmosphere. Very well trained young, personable staff, an excellent chef (probably throws wobblies in the kitchen), good wine list and interesting menu even for a veggie like me.Lots of locals which is a good sign. We have been 4 times.

We had a delicious meal at La Fortezza on Friday evening (26 Sept). I can definitely recommend the sea bass, it was very good. The wine list is quite extensive too and they have my favourite Zinfandel Rose... bonus! The restaurant is a tiny place but the ambience is great. It is an ideal venue for a romantic meal and...

This is my second visit, the first with a larger group. Both times is has been busy with aprox. 12 tables. I would say that we all enjoyed our meals and found the service both polite and friendly. Typical Italian menu with a selection of pizza, pasta & meat dishes. Well worth a visit if you're stopping at the St.... More

Maybe we were unlucky? Having not eaten here for a couple of years we had read some good reviews and booked in. Although the service was very good, we were disappointed with some of our chosen dishes and the table we were sat at meant the waiters were continually squeezing past his chair and back - not quite what most...

The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone ranging from pizza and pasta at less than £10 per head or specials like fresh fish and seafood. The restaurant is intimate only seating around 30 people and I suggest if you want to dine at a weekend you book well in advance. The service was very good and the... More
