Fabulous food, drinks were lovely and our waitress was great. Had a slight wait for courses/drinks but not that it was a massive problem as we were having a relaxing meal and not restricted for time.

We came to celebrate my mums birthday. The staff were friendly and tentative. Both my parents and deaf and my mum appreciated the server trying to learn how to say happy birthday in BSL. We also really enjoyed the food. I think that the pizza menu options could be broadened to provide more options of toppings. The decor was nice, modern and rustic. We could happily eat here again.

Waitresses were so nice and friendly. Both me and my partner had a really tough week with personal stuff going on in our families and so we treat ourselves and went out to cheer up. The waitresses were so lovely to us, can't wait to come back

It was a nice table in an old building and the waiter who served us was very friendly and helpful. The pizzas were good but there are better pasta dishes elsewhere in Wakefield.
The ladies toilets were not very pleasant and appeared in need of attention.

Food bang average, no draught beer, service pleasant but a few mistakes which was probably down to lack of experience. It’ll be a while before we spend £100 here again.

First time at this gorgeous Pizzeria. Will definitely be back.
Only slight criticism was that the staff didn't ask to see of we needed anything with our starters, they did with mains, we had to get their attention to ask for balsamic vinegar. But think they were just a bit under staffed that evening, they were so pleasant and helpful. I will certainly be back sppn. Thank you. Maria x

We had a wonderful evening at Fino. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in an old tudor-style building. We sat upstairs by the front window and had a lovely table. The staff were friendly and very attentive and our food was delicious. We started with some of the cicchetti plates followed by the special (lobster linguini). To my delight and surprise, they were able to supply the lobster linguini with gluten-free pasta - which was amazing!). There was also a good selection of wine and other drinks on offer. The other diners were also very friendly and there was an amiable atmosphere in the restaurant. All in all we had a very enjoyable dinner and would love to return one day when we visit Wakefield again. It is a shame that we live so far away (in London). I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for an authentic Italian meal in a friendly, lively environment.

My brother and I were on a day trip to the nearby Sculpture Park and visited Fino's before getting the train home.

We pre-booked a table but getting into the restaurant was a little difficult to those who've never visited before, like us. There was no clear indication which door was the main entrance as the front door on the main road looked out of bounds, and so too did the door at the side in the alleyway (for future reference, dear reader, it's the black door round the back where the outdoor tables and chairs are).

When we got inside, we were welcomed by our host who ticked us off the reservation list and sat us beside the window. We were given the menu and left to peruse through for a few minutes before our drinks orders were taken. Swiftly delivered, by this point we were ready to order food. Our orders were taken, both of us wanting pizza, and it did not take long at all for them to be made and delivered to our table.

They were fantastic. You could taste the freshness of the ingredients and they were very reasonably priced. My brother opted for the Margherita pizza whilst I opted for the Pollo pizza. I would have happily paid more.

We decided to go for a dessert too. My brother opted for the ice cream whilst I opted for the Tiramisu. Again, both were delicious.

The staff were all very attentive and friendly throughout our visit, the food was great and reasonably priced, and the ambience was pleasant too. If we're in the area again then we'll definitely be going back to Fino's. It's a little gem of a place!
