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!
Very friendly and courteous Good quality food at reasonable prices enjoyable for families or a romantic night for two No rushing and food piping hot Will definitely recommend
Very knowledgeable waiter and friendly staff. Food great atmosphere cosy comfortable we have been 3 times and had a good night every time. Will visit again
Very nice atmosphere and attentive staff. Very friendly and made us feel welcome and the price was right. Love the decor and friendliest. Food was amazing
Very nice Italian restaurant run by real Italian... The old fashioned interior sets the mood and has some positive vibes. And the food is delicious too!
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.
A lovely meal in amazing surroundings with superbly attentive staff.They even brought us birthday pudding with a candle when we mentioned a birthday. First visit, but we will be back soon.The scallops were delicious , in fact everything was.Haven't had breakfast this morning as still full!
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
With fantastic food and outstanding service Boccellis is our favourite place to eat! Nothing is too much trouble and the children love it because they are made to feel as important as everyone else.
This was our first visit to Boccellis and we were not disappointed. The service was fist class, the atmosphere was very relaxing and the food was excellent. All in all a great restaurant.
Really nice place.. shame about the staff !! When we had finished are meal and just wanted to sit and chat felt like we where in the way and basically asked to leave!!!! Paid for meal waited for change never arrived... I would have tipped but would have liked the option... wouldn't go again... shame really because food was nice and the venue was gorgeous 😕😕
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.
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.
Food excellent, service prompt and courteous, just what I've grown to expect from this fabulous restaurant. Set in a unique building dating back several centuries, the perfect setting for a lovely evening.
we went for a meal and was very impressed with the service from start to finish. Offered the perfect Italian dining experience. Food was outstanding and added bonus was a cocktail menu! Highly recommended and would visit again
Great food. In particular,the seafood linguini was up there as the best I've ever eaten, as was the creme brulee dessert. Lovely setting for the restaurant and atmosphere too
