Strange that they do not take credit or debit cards. Just remember to go with a good reserve of cash. The food is very good here. Much improved since the present owners took over. You should ensure you book as it is popular

I've been to Tiamo on two separate occasions both times I can say that the food has been excellent, the menu is great and the location/atmosphere is good too. The only downside to Tiamo's is the service, I felt the lady who served us was rushing us (the restaurant was empty), the table we get was by the stairs so... More

A group of friends came here for our mate's birthday. The food was amazing, it was like I was back in Italy again. I wish I could say the same about service, we were rushed, felt like a burden and had to all order at different times as the whole party wasn't there yet. I don't think we will return.

Can I just start by saying the food here is amazing. The restaurant is tastefully decorated the Italian music creates a romantic setting. The prices are reasonable too. I would recommend a visit here. The only negative was the lady hostess was really informative, but a little over powering. But our party had a good evening.

We booked here for bank holiday Monday. We were torn between this and another Italien we go to in Wakefield, decided on here though as we have never been. Turned up for our special evening (my partner works away and was heading back off the next day) to find all the lights off. There was a note in the window... More

This is our local Italian and by far the best Italian I have come across in South Yorkshire. Gorgeous food without fail every time, whether as a couple or part of a large group. My partner and I visited for a romantic meal for my birthday on a Tuesday night and as ever all was brilliant. Attentive staff but without... More

Heard great reports of this beautiful restaurant. Couldnt find it as lights not working above the sign outside. Eventually found our way in to find a lovely restaurant but was then rushed directly to our seat(admittedly we were 5 mins late, but would have been nice to have a drink first.) Starters(4) were superb, but our plates were being cleared... More

Rather put off by being told that cash only accepted.Chose Cod from specials menu,only to be told by Tina in a rather off hand manner that they didn't have any and that I should have been told that when given the menu! Found that regular customers get better attention and felt they couldn't really be bothered with us. Having said... More

This was our second visit to Tiamo and both times have been amazing. Our first visit was just outstanding, we were made to feel very welcome by the staff and Tina is just the BEST host you could ask for. The food is just beautiful, not too much where you feel overfaced, and not too little where you are leaving... More
