    We truly enjoyed our Thursday dinner at this very presentable restaurant! They accepted us as a walk in even though the restaurant was at a 70% capacity (on a Thursday night haha). At the table there was italian olives and marinated oil with bread sticks, all were delicious. For starters we had the sea food salad (very good portion for the price and all sea food options were delicious) and the soup of the day which was vegetable soup (fantastic flavor) which came with a couple of mini loaf breads. For mains we had the sea bass (it was literally melting in your mouth) and the halibut fish steak which oh my god was the best fish i've ever had. nice lemony-buttery flavor with delicious asparagus on the side and loads of sauce to dip your bread or chips in. Luscious! For dessert we had a tiramisu (very good and loved the glass as a presentation) and a cheesecake (not strawberry cheesecake, baked cheesecake!) Friendly staff without being annoying like other posh restaurants that waiters are creeping behind you. One more thing that we really appreciated about this restaurant is that tips were not included, not because we are cheap but, we always preffer to leave as a tip whatever amount of money we want rather than other restaurants that force you a 10-20% which is absurd.

    Nice setting, will decorated place. Service is very good. And the place was recently featured in a list of great restaurants in Yorkshire. Unfortunately the food didn't stack up. The calamari I had was obviously from a frozen pack, it certainly wasn't freshly made on-site. I also ordered halibut, a nice chunk of it was served on asparagus, but the sauce was way over seasoned and spoilt the dish. I've been to the restaurant a few times, and the consistency of the meals seems to vary. Sometimes it's flawless, others not so good. Unfortunately my last visit was a not so good. Give it a try, if you drop on a great night you will not be disappointed, on a not so good night the food will be mediocre. It is a rather pricey place. £50 a head on average for starter, main and a drink.

    This Italian restaurant offers you good quality food cooked to an excellent standard. We were a party of 11 but we did not have to wait an unreasonably long time before our food appeared. If you have a very hearty appetite you might be disappointed in the portion sizes. However, the quality is excellent so if you are worried then just order a side. I'm sure the portions would satisfy most people.

    Great restaurant on Garforth main street. Wide range of food available as you would expect for any decent Italian. All good was nicely made and is clearly fresh, the only criticism I would make is that some of the portions feel a tiny bit skimpy in parts especially the sides but not a deal breaker. I ordered a side of roast potatoes to accompany a steak and there was about 7-8 small slithers of roast potatoes (not full roast potatoes) however they were beautifully cooked. Same with the rib starters you get 4 ribs which are delicious but you just need one or two extra to feel like they have truly hit. That said, it's definitely up there with the likes of Franco's, San Carlos and Salvo's
