“Soooo good that we went back 3 times in a WEEK!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

My husband and I were travelling in Cumbria for the week and our base was Kendal. It is such a lovely town...one of our favorites in England to be sure! We stumbled across Infusion and being half Italian I thought we'd try it! OMG...what a WONDERFUL surprise! The pasta was AMAZING and the service even better than that! We had a lovley lady named Bolshena who served us and she as so WONDERFUL...friendly and attentive and never stops moving! There are two floors to this restaurant and she is buzzing around up/down like a butterfly! We both ordered pasta dishes...mine was spegetti carbonara which was really delicious! My husband ordered the lasagna and loved it as well. We were SO IMPRESSED by the food/service we went back another 2 times during our week's stay! It was THAT GOOD! Also, if you eat before 6:30pm they have a wonderful price specia...5 pounds for a main pasta dish, etc. REALLY A GREAT VALUE as well! My only regret is that we are in America and it is too far of a commute to go back for dinner! :)

“Good Find”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We ate here recently on a Thursday night. There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant with a group of six to our right and another 3 tables full. The waitress was perhaps a wee bit slow in bringing menus and asking if we would like a drink, but she was welcoming and friendly. Once our order had been taken the food arrived reasonably quickly and was very good. The flatbread garlic bread was particularly good.
This was a good little find reasonably priced with good food and pleasant staff.

“Food Was Bland and Tasteless”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Went Here for a meal it was a Staurday night and Quite busy first impression not enough staff to cover,anyway we eventually got are drinks and Ordered a Amatriciana dish which on the menu was described as " Penne pasta with pancetta, spicy Italian sausage, onions, hot chilli peppers and rich tomato sauce; (hot). " i ordered Lasange Both Dishes had no taste at all the Amatriciana tasted just like a pasta dish with tomato sauce no where near Hot and no hot Chilli peppers in, the Lasange was bland could not even taste a hint of garlic so i think we wont be going back again.
