    Had a lovely meal here again and the service was brilliant. My husbands salmon pasta was a little bland and a smaller portion than we remembered from previous visits.

    Service not the most attentive, staff more focussed on clearing/setting tables then take orders which led to a long wait despite us having our menus closed indicating we were ready to order. Food was generally good, pizza could have done with 30 seconds more as crush wasn’t that crispy and was rather soft still.

    We visited yesterday and this is an establishment we have often eaten at. I felt my risotto was not as hot as it could have been although I did eat it before saying anything. I got the impression it had been cooked and left to stand while my partners pizza was being cooked. He said the pizza was best he had had so no complaints there. I have had risotto here before and there was no problem with it previously. I just got the impression when I mentioned it to a member of staff that they were not interested in what I had said. I may be wrong but that was the impression they gave. I would point out that they were not busy at the time.

    Service took a long time to take our order, asked for a few minutes to decide on food choice between drinks but we were sat waiting for about 15 minutes to be noticed. Later that evening we both felt a little sick, both had either had prawns or the lobster sauce. Restaurant seems to be going a little down hill.

    Fino Pizzeria & CicchettiResponded on 26 June 2022Hi Matt Really sorry to hear of your experience with us, would certainly like to make this up to you in some way. If you could email the restaurant direct, I will investigate this for you Kind Regards Martin

    Really enjoyed this restaurant. Booked last minute day before for Father’s Day. Added another person last minute and the restaurant was very accommodating. Service amazing. Table lovely . Food was beautiful apart from my partners main. He didn’t enjoy at all . He did tell staff in a very nice manner when they came to collect plates and they asked if he would like something making he didn’t and they knocked his dinner off the bill. We were a table of 5 and kids eat free . Lovey food would definitely recommend and will be visiting again. Brownie to die for 👍👍👍

    We haven’t visited since the old Cow Shed days and we were so delighted at the change of theme - outdoor seating, updated decor and a completely new menu. Although traditional Italian food (pasta pizza risotto) there was plenty of choice and a gorgeous chicken dish. I had the most delicious prawn and lobster dish and we also had room for dessert. Fantastic!. It was great to see familiar faces serving and very friendly and personable staff as it has always been. I would highly recommend.

    I got the mushroom risotto and made it vegan, really nice. My only critique is that it came on a plate so didn’t look appetising, but it was nice nonetheless. My friend got a pizza which she really enjoyed. And it was 2 cocktails for £10. Can’t go wrong really

    Lovely waiters! Had a lovely evening and food was great! I had ordered what I thought was something different and they swapped and cooked a fresh meal so I liked it! Only criticism was the starter- had bruschetta there was lots of tomato but not a lot of bread!

    We have been a few times and the food has always been superb!! The service is also astounding :) I have very severe food allergies (even airborne) which makes going to restaurants a big gamble but there is no airborne particles coming out of the kitchen and they are always super careful and accommodating with my allergies. Besides the food making it one of my favorites it’s also amazing feeling safe and comfortable when I’m eating knowing the care they put in every dish.

    Fino Pizzeria & CicchettiResponded on 12 June 2022Hi Sofia Thank you so much for your lovely review, it is fantastic you felt so safe with regards to your allergies and we really do think it is important to do everything we can to help. Thank you again and hope to see you soon Kind Regards Martin FINO Manager

    Fino Pizzeria & CicchettiResponded on 12 June 2022Hi Oliver My apologies for this being missed, it is not served with Vegan cheese as standard but is certainly available as states on menu so if this was requested it certainly should have been accommodated and I will take it up with both front of house and kitchen team to make sure this does not occur again.

    We were four friends, Friday evening Extremely slow service throughout but we know it’s hard in the hospitality service to get and keep staff at the moment so we bore with this, but it was nearly 2 hours from ordering to receiving our main course. Starters when they arrived were luke warm which isn’t great when you’ve ordered calamari and scallops.calamari was an extremely mean portion with the rings halved!!! Diavola pizza had so much balsamic vinegar on the red onions that I had a coughing fit. One friend was so past it by the time her main course arrived that she asked for it to be packed as a take away. By 10:20pm the cleaner was in evidence in the restaurant and our table was cleared signalling that we should leave - we were waiting for a lift at 10:30pm and our still 1/3 rd bottler was taken away - a clear time you should leave signal - we had spent £145 on a very mediocre at best meal and very poor service. We won’t return

    Fino Pizzeria & CicchettiResponded on 12 June 2022Hi Karen So sorry for this experience, I cannot apologise enough for the wait and the service. We did have some staff unfortunately off (including myself) with illness but that does not excuse being felt pushed out the door or the poor quality of the food you received. Or what seems like unusual delays. If there is anything I can do please email me direct on enquiries@finowakefield.co.uk and I will try to make it up to you My apologies once again Martin FINO Manager

    Very family friendly, nice pizza. French fries were too salty especially for children, but great value for money as we went for the kids eat free with every paying adult midweek and this includes a dessert. The starters seem very overpriced. Calamari was £7.95 and in comparison a full pizza is about £11. Service was fair but they seem to be concentrating more on the takeawy orders coming in over table service.

    Such an enchanting location in central Wakefield, with delicious food and superlative service. The pizza dough on the calzone was properly thin and caught, and the filling meaty with not too much sauce. My wife's linguini didn't stand a chance and the garlic bread was perfection. Topped off by Veronica's diligent service (with other staff who we cannot recall), and Martin's effortless stewardship. We will be back. And with daughter x!!
