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

Came here for dinner and drinks - so delicious and best value for money of any Italian in leeds. Would recommend to anyone, especially students as BYOB saves you so much! Thanks for an amazing meal xx

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
