About San Livio
About the 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 San Livio, 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, San Livio offers more than just dinner and drinks. Reservations are highly recommended.
The premises alone are enough to make San Livio 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.
San Livio 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. San Livio is one of Lundwood and Barnsley’s most popular restaurants – do yourself a favour and book a table in advance!
