Went here with a party of 80, now catering for 80 people with a full choice of courses is not easy, but the staff pulled it off with grace and aplomb. Food was excellent, garlic mushrooms and chicken in cream sauce for me while my other half had prawn cocktail and salmon in hollandaise sauce. Good deserts with authentic tiramisu... More

first time visit last night. Menu choice limited and no mention of garlic bread or a carbonara. They did serve a pizza style garlic bread, when asked, but when this arrived the tomato half tasted foisty. So eagerly waited for my lobster lasagne and my friend ordered a beef lasagne. I asked for a soda water with lemon and ice,... More

We were a party of 4 and decided to eat before a visit to Wakefield Theatre. 3 of us ordered a steak which were all cooked perfectly and to our liking The final meal consisted of large prawns (shell off) which was also top notch. A very affordable bottle of wine helped the experience, which we all agreed was very... More

Having been to another Italian restaurant couple years back and having a negative experience in regards to Gluten Free food. I felt quite apprehensive but thought I'd give it a go. Being GF for me is medical not a fad diet! Visiting Boccaccio was quite the opposite. They ensured me that they were able to cater - checking that GF... More

Fran was an excellent server whist sadly Franco was instantly dislikable and seemed not to exhibit any traits of a professional F & B worker. The pianist was excellent too.

My wife and I visited on Wednesday night with four friends and although the restaurant was somewhat quite it still has a fine ambiance. The broccoli soup was excellent as was smoked salon and prawns. Everyone was totally satisfied with their starters. I had the beef stroganoff which was beautiful. All other main courses were as nice. The staff were... More

My family and I had a lovely meal at Boccaccio last night. The menu had plenty of options and the food was excellent. I'm vegan but the staff were incredibly helpful in coming up with food that would meet my dietary requirements and still be very tasty. There was a live pianist and the atmosphere was lovely. The only downside... More
