Good honest food

Been here lots of times after shopping. Great service, quick and lovely fresh food. It is what it is no frills, good food. Great prices, won't break the bank. Would definitely recommend.

Visited here a while ago and was looking forward to it as heard great reviews but had a fly cooked into my pizza and luckily as eating it with a knife and fork and being a fussy eater noticed something black in my margarita pizza turned out to be a massive fly in the base under the cheese. Obviously I... More

Been here a few times in the evening with family and enjoyed the food... Maybe due to the fact that I'd sunk a few glasses of wine before the starter had come, however I have also visited at lunch time to try out the cheaper menu and I think that the quality of food is very poor. The man who... More

Have visiited here on a number of times over a greater number of years. I can honestly say that time stands still. Same decor, same disinterested waiting staff and management. Add to that the menu and you have a recipe for blandness with a hint of apathy. Much better eateries in the area with staff that make you feel welcome... More

The food was nothing exceptional- I have had both worse and better. The cost however was reasonable; for the price the food was a lot better than I have had. The decor is a little old and dated but this place works well for a casual meal before a night out or a relaxed lunchtime meal.

Nice, well-established, authentic place in the heart of the town centre. Has very reasonable deals both afternoons and weekday evenings - we however selected from the Chef's Specials for evening mains. The food was good but the concensus of opinion was just that - good but nothing exceptional and although we left full there wasn't a food 'wow' factor that... More

This restaurant is one of my families favourites. We have been coming here years. Always lovely and fresh also reasonably priced. Also the owner is lovely, always makes you very welcome. The menu is also great for kids :)

Great authentic Italian food. They do a great lunch time special menu. We eat here at least 2-3 times a month, wether that's as a couple or with our 3 chidren. The staff are always very attentive. I would always recommend this restaurants to friends & family.

We were disappointed by portion sizes here. We had elected to eat from the 2 courses for £10.95 menu which was restrictive in choice but included dishes that we would have chosen anyway. My breaded mushrooms were 6 half mushrooms with a spoonful of wilting leaves and my lasagne although it tasted lovely was not much bigger than a pack... More

Was a warming welcome by the host. He was really friendly and welcoming. The food arrived within 10 minutes of placing order and tasted really great, one of the best places I've eaten in the centre of Barnsley. I recommend you try, as I didn't know about this place until my partner talked about her friends and family eating here... More
