Location and contact

La Besi Restaurant is a typical family restaurant with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We have quickly built up a name for ourselves as the place to come for a charming meal with an intimate, friendly atmosphere. We opened the doors of La Besi Restaurant for the first time in October 2005, inspired by our passion for food and for Italy. This was the time when our dream finally came true. Of course we could not tell how successful we would be but we believed that by serving delicious food at great prices, we will win the hearts of our guests. Since those wonderful first days we are please to see that our customers love La Besi as much as we do. La Besi has already established a regular multinational

We recently found this restaurant and now me and family are obsessed with food, staff and atmosphere. We also ordered a lot of take away on La Besi website. It’s so much better on la Besi website as we get a 15% discount!👍This AMAZING!
