About Boccellis Italian Restaurant

In the Lundwood neighbourhood of Barnsley, there’s one Italian restaurant that you can count on for quality, flavour and service – we’re talking about Boccelli’s Italian Restaurant, a dining establishment that’s the perfect option for dinner on Grange Lane. Situated inside of an historic water mill dating from around the year 1150, this Italian restaurant provides a unique experience for local diners and tourists alike. With live events held on the regular, Boccelli’s offers more than just dinner and drinks. Reservations are highly recommended.

Boccellis Italian Restaurant, 81 Grange Lane, S71 5QF Barnsley

Further Information

The premises alone are enough to make Boccelli’s the talk of South Yorkshire. A refurbished water mill in Lundwood dating from the 12th century, this Barnsley restaurant on Grange Lane is a history lover’s dream, and is also a treat for architecture aficionados or those who simply like a cosy feel. With exposed beams and stone walls, the restaurant is both stunning and incredibly relaxed. Also ideal for private functions, the entire restaurant is bookable for weddings, christenings, birthday celebrations and corporate events.

Boccelli’s serves up classic Italian cuisine, putting an emphasis on fresh ingredients and time-honoured recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Chef Livio is truly an expert, and his pizzas are out of this world – try the Rustica with mozzarella, tomato and Mediterranean vegetables for a delightful option. From the mains, we recommend the gourmet agnello Romano, a lamb shank served atop mashed potatoes, topped with a red wine rosemary sauce. And from the pasta options, you can’t go wrong with the penne amatriciana, penne cooked with bacon onion and tomato. Boccelli’s is one of Lundwood and Barnsley’s most popular restaurants – do yourself a favour and book a table in advance!

Lovely place, great food! will definitely be visiting again. Nice Italian and also has a new prosecco bar inside. More advertising needed for this place as no one seems to know about it.

Great ambience. The staff are attentitive but not intrusive. They are also very efficient. The building with the ordinal stonework makes for a venue with a difference. The food is excellent especially the 'sea bass in a bag' mwha. It was very busy, Saturday night at 7. This of course adds to the atmosphere. Would I dine here again? Most definitely. Can't find annything to fault, except unfortunately the number of steps to the restaurant.

Excellent service, we arrived early and was seated right away. Staff were friendly and inviting and engaged in conversations and a laugh with us, food was amazing and would definately visit again. My only critique would be( my opinion only) that my main was presented quickly after my starter and I was still a bit full so couldn't finish my main which was beautiful.

Polite and friendly staff were very attentive throughout, from bringing pre- dinner drinks and showing us downstairs to the bar, to serving our food. The meal was very good, some tasty, well-cooked dishes. Staff also advised us about specials that weren't on the menu. All in all, it was a lovely evening with good food and service.

This is the 2nd time we've been, 1st time we loved it. This time to be fair there was a large table also booked in but still we shouldn't have felt ignored. Our dessert was 45 minutes late, we weren't in a rush but by this time we weren't hungry. We had to ask for our bill 4 times also, I know they were busy but it's how you handle it. We will return as we love the food but will check there isn't a large table booked in this time.

I am in a difficult position because sadly I was unable to honor this booking. However, the restaurant were most understanding when I rang to cancel and wished my wife a speedy recovery. I fully intend to make good on the reservation at a later date. Therefore, my experience is based upon the Restaurant staff and Boccelli's the website, which I thought was very good.

The food was excellent, very large portions and great quality. The menu was extensive and there were plenty of vegetarian options available. I did think the starters were quite expensive compared to the main courses but we all enjoyed what we ordered so didn't mind. A very enjoyable visit.

Lovely setting, friendly staff and a good choice on the menu. Our group mostly had the pasta dishes but I would have liked to try a steak as they look delicious but were a bit pricey for us. A nice, relaxed evening

Although there were only 2 tables occupied in the restaurant, which invariably means a lack of atmosphere, the staff were very welcoming, gave us first class service and the food was its usual excellent quality. A most enjoyable evening.

Very good- hearty portion sizes, good service. Open fire. Only slight gripe- staff were constantly close tending fire so it was difficult to talk privately.

No complaints with the food. On our visit, we were a party of 4, there were 2 couples and one single in and as such the place lacked any atmosphere whatsoever.

Lovely old building but bench seats at some tables were uncomfortable and too low. Food was disappointing. Steak good but veg with it was a limited choice and poorly cooked. Salmon pasta was almost inedible with overpowering tomato sauce and far too much salt. It was presented in a deep glass bowl that made it look unappealing from the start.

Food quality fine, but overcooked and cold when served. Service was poor and akin to what you might expect in Fawlty Towers. Standard has deteriorated since previous visits.

Never again. One hour before we got our table, further hour before starter arrived which was awful. Finally left without a meal. We weren't the only ones either, three other couples did the same.
