“Excellent - Real Italian Hosts, Real Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We come to Il Tartufo every couple of months and absolutely love it. They always welcome us with a smile and the married couple who run it are great with our 2 year old son.

Whether we go with our son, a romantic meal for two, or a family get together, it's always top quality.

Having visited some different restaurants for a change lately, we realised how good Il Tartufo actually is. Everything is made fresh on site and tastes great.

Some Italian restaurants in the area are pretenders, run by non Italians, this is the real deal, tucked away in Wyke.

Well worth a visit, you will realise why when you go.

“Outstandingly good food in a lovely attentive environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We dined here last night. Its the third time we have been to this lovely little Italian restaurant, and although the restaurant has a very unassuming frontage, its a little tardis once you get inside. Larger inside than it looks from the roadside. Extremely clean, tidy, attractively decorated and furnished, and ambient, and the staff couldnt do enough for us. My mother in law who is quite ill and struggles to get around, was looked after most attentively all night, and the food, wow. What can I say. Every single one of us absolutely thoroughly enjoyed our selection. We all had something different. And it was nice to have a selection from the specials on the blackboard, even though the menu was large enough to have a great choice, even without the blackboard. The staff were fantastic. Very professional, friendly, and warm. Its in a strange little place. Wyke is quite odd in itself and I do think the location of the restaurant is rather unusual. But if youre thinking of dining Italian in the Bradford area, then please think about this restaurant. The food is just outstanding, really excellent, and the staff, wonderful, and we will definitely be adding this one to our list of favourites in future. Im sure we will be back time after time. Absolutely divine. Cannot praise it highly enough. 5*****

“We love Il tartufo; little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We have been to this restaurant dozens of times over the last twelve months. Trip Adviser have spelt the name wrong sadly, which is correctly called Il Tartufo, which is an absolute gem hidden away in Wyke, Bradford.

Food is fantastic with very good friendly service by Tony and family and team. It is good value for money. In some ways I don't want to review this place, as think it may get too busy. It is certainly one of the better Italian restaurants in the surrounding area. The lasagne is the best I have ever had, but also have had steak, calzone and other dishes, all of which have been superb.
