What can I say. 10 out of 10 we always enjoy 😊 when we are in the lakes. Zeffirelli's staff welcoming and very friendly. Location excellent ana the food is out standing. If your not a vegetarian you will become a lover of vegetarian. From starters to main to dessert. Serving start to finish ana presentation well worth the money.... More

What a fabulous small cinema. We saw Lion at 5.30. Cinema about half full but a really great place. There's also a cafe,restaurant and jazz club. Definitely recommend it.

We went on the Saturday night to eat pizza and listen to the live band. The band was good, the food was average. The service was not that welcoming. I saw the male waiters being friendly in a fawning sort of way to a couple of other tables and did wonder if we weren't the right sort of guest for... More

We decided to have lunch at Zefferellis, it opens during the day as a cafe and at night as a restaurant. It is a vegetarian restaurant with vegan options. It is a very chic restaurant and had a lovely atmosphere. We chose a cute table for 2 in the corner and I ordered a hot chocolate with soya milk and... More

I'm not a veggie but would pass other restaurants to eat here. Also try its sister, Fellinis. You can do a cinema/meal combo.

great veggie pizza and gluten free options. Everytime I visit Ambleside I come here, the food is great, not too expensive and the service is excellent. They also have a cool jazz bar, which is nice to relax in after a hard days walking and a cinema if thats your thing.

We had made reservations as we knew that this is a popular restaurant and it was going to be a busy evening. The table was ready and we were seated straight away. The restaurant is very smart and well decorated with quite a sophisticated feel. The range of drinks available was good as was the menu. Food arrived fairly promptly... More
