We have visited Zeffirellis several time over the years we have been in the Lake District. Great vegetarian Italian. Beautiful food and being linked to the cinema meant a lovely wet afternoon and evening for our family.

A very busy place to eat but plenty of staff who were attentive and friendly. Food was great (broccoli and blue cheese lasagna). Reasonably priced food although the wine was a little over priced in my opinion. Would go back for sure.
