Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent experience at La Besi! My friends and I had pasta and garlic bread, the food was great with generous portion sizes and really well priced. BYOB is an added bonus. The waiters were also super friendly, will definitely be going back here x

Myself and my daughter were looking for somewhere to eat before a gig at The Stylus and La Besi looked welcoming enough. Our waiter was very pleasant and the food was surprisingly good and decent value. The restaurant could do with a spruce up but...it has some charm.More

Gorgeous Italian Food/Takeaway! Me and my partner have been ordering pasta dishes from La Bessie for over 2 years. I can’t fault the pasta dishes whatsoever! We’ve travelled to Italy many times and La Bessie’s dishes are spot on 🤌🏼 🇮🇹 it’s so good to...Italian pasta in the city of Leeds. We 100% recommend the spaghetti alla carbonara, salmon fettuccine and the fettuccine san marco 🥩.More

Went here for lunch and the lunch offer is great. The pizza is freshly made and Italian style on point. Tasty, maybe a bit much on the cheese. The ambience is rather functional though, more diner than restaurant which for lunch is great but does...not appeal for dinner.More

My last review of la besi was glowing. However, the last 2 times we have ordered, the food has been sub standard. 2 days ago, my husband ordered the linguine bolognese, he said it was very bland and there was hardly any bolognese. My carbonara...was also bland and they forgot to send the parmesan cheese that’s advertised on the menu. Tonight we ordered pizzas. My chicken and mushroom pizza came as ordered but there was hardly any tomato sauce and only a few scraps of chicken. My husband ordered a calzone. They sent a chicken calzone instead. When I called them to complain, the person on the phone was polite and apologetic and promised to send the correct order, which they did, promptly. However, when his calzone arrived, it had hardly any filling inside, just a line of meat and cheese. We were both disappointed as this is not reflective of their usual standard. Nevertheless, as this has been two meals in a row that we have been disappointed with, I feel that an update to my last review is necessary. I would like to add that the staff on the phone and delivering the food have remained very polite, friendly and professional at all times. I am not sure if they have a new chef or new management but the food is no longer the quality we expect and will not be returning for a long time, if ever.More

We have visited this restaurant several times in the past but this time I ordered a meal for delivery for my husband and I. I ordered the pasta and steak in a tomato and chilli sauce, which was delicious. My husband ordered the steak. There...was a mistake made by the restaurant with his order but as soon as my husband called them they immediately sent him another meal. His meal was also delicious. Both meals arrived piping hot. The staff on the phone and the delivery man were both very polite and friendly. We will definitely visit/ order from here again.More

On Thursday we took advantage of the early evening offer, which included most of the menu, and were extremely happy with the meal and the bill. We had a lovely meal and I can honestly say that my meatballs starter was amazing- one of the...best starters I've ever had! Apparently my wife's goat's cheese starter was gorgeous too! To top it off the host was a really nice bloke and being able to bring your own drinks is always a big plus for us- not often found in Italian restaurants.More
