“In Future”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Definitely book, we got away with not booking but only because the weather was dire and the waitress on duty seemed to pull a few strings.
Clearly a popular restaurant as a party of eight were expected next to ours and even though tables were moved we didn't feel hemmed in.
Seldom have we been to a restaurant where the staff have been so attentive, perhaps because they wanted us in and out before the expected reservation arrived. That said, we didn't feel rushed, in fact the opposite taking time to enjoy the larger than life salmon pizza but sadly leaving no room for dessert, just a couple of coffees.
A great restaurant that left us totally satisfied.

“A taste of Italy...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Situated along one of Kendal's busiest shopping streets, this cosy little restaurant offers a good choice of Italian favourites in a bright and comfortable setting. The food is competently cooked and presented and there are some very reasonably priced set menus. Tends to get very busy at times and popular with families.

“Great food, Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

Recently went to Infusion for the first time and reading some of the reviews I went with high expectations. We were greeted and seated by friendly staff and they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. Service was quick and usually you have to sacrifice taste for such quick service but the Pizza was exquisite, hats off to the chef!

Highly recommend and will be returning.

“Christmas party night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Great venue for a Christmas get together. There was 17 of us, we got our food at the same time and it was hot, prompt service at the bar or drinks at the table. The food was absolutely delicious, very tasty and great value for money. Would definitely recommend, this is my favourite restaurant in Kendal. Thanks so much for a great night team infusion.
