Situated at the top of the Main Street in Skipton and next door to the Town Hall, Wildwood the pizza, pasta and grill has arrived in town.
The very reasonably priced restaurant will be a success in the town because the service and food are excellent.
It is always good to see that when you order a jug of water that it arrives with ice and lemon, so many places these days seem to forget the latter two items.
The atmosphere is warm and inviting and you feel like your custom is appreciated. Our visit on an early Sunday evening was busy with young families and couples.
My starter of Mozzarella and garlic bread was a meal in itself. Not too fatty but very enjoyable.
My partner had a mixed salad for her starter though that was from the "sides" part of the menu. Fresh and tasty it ticked all the boxes.
The pizzas at Wildwood are for me one of the main reasons to visit, as they are just like you get in Italy. I could have been back in Milan or Como when I tasted my Carne pizza. At £9.95 it was great value.
My partner went for the Italian smoked ham and rocket pizza served without the caramelised onion. Whilst the toppings were plentiful the pizza did not seem crispy enough for her.

My Wildwood Sundae might have been a dieter's nightmare, but how can you resist chocolate brownie, marshmallows, raspberry sauce, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, fresh cream and amaretti biscuits?
My partner's Eton Mess Sundae was just as tempting. You could just visit to try the sundaes alone if you wanted and with some seating outside it could be a good idea in the summer.
Although part of a chain, each restaurant feels like a stand alone. A great addition to the Skipton dining scene.
