A quality meal among good friends, but we could hardly hear ourselves speak. Staff were very courteous and even though busy, the service was very good ....might be showing my age perhaps...?!

Arrived with 8 adults, 2 toddlers and 1 baby. Asked for high chairs no problem. Ordered starters and main course. Food a little while in arriving but very good once it had arrived. Restaurant was full but staff coped well as there were only 3 of them. Would return again

Our friends who live in Kirkby told us not to bother with this restaurant but we thought we would try it anyway. Big mistake! The place was cold upon entry and no hello or warm greeting. Eventually we were acknowledged and taken to a table. Service was pretty much none existent and everything was very slow to arrive. Pizza was... More

Went here after we had heard about this restaurant and after a brisk walk around Kirby we went in for a meal We felt that the restaurant wasn't ready for a busy day and sadly they turned away more people than they served That desperately needed more staff so service was very slow but when the food did arrive it...

Cannot comment on the food as we didn't get that far. We came in, nobody greeted us, we found ourselves a table and waited. And waited. And waited. The young boy refused to catch our eye, and the man at the bar wasn't any better. So we left. Nobody acknowledged us leaving even though we walked right past the till/bar... More

When we entered the restaurant, we noticed, it was chilly. We were approached quickly for our order, but when the pasta was served, it came on cold plates. We were not impressed and won't be returning.

I have been visiting Kirkby Lonsdale over the last 10 month every few weekends the one place I had not visited was The Italian Garden which had looked inviting every time I passed. Went for dinner on Saturday evening so disappointed. On entry the place was cold the heating needed turning up a notch. There wasn't many customers my partner... More

Taking advantage of a "hidden gems" deal we rang ahead to see if we could use the voucher at lunchtime. Arrived to a genuine, friendly welcome and were shown menus. We'd set our hearts on calamari and we requested if we could order this as starters - of course we could and this was quite the tastiest I've enjoyed in... More
