Greeted by Loz the front of house, he was warm, welcoming and attentive. The menu, simple, but expertly done, was served promptly and with a smile. The chef, Sascha came out to greet us which was very lovely.
This place is hidden away in new walk; a little gem!
Highly recommended for a good night!

This is the second time we have visited L'expresso with a groupon voucher & we thoroughly enjoyed it yet again.
The food & atmosphere was excellent & the service friendly & efficient.
We will definitely be going back again.

We went on a Saturday at 7.30 , it is what it says, a pasta restaurant, spoilt for choice with the menu and the food itself was excellent, coffee was really nice too. Atmosphere was really nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back.

Visited this restaurant at lunch time on a groupon voucher offering a pasta dish and a glass of wine for £5 which seemed a good deal as i thought ' you can't go wrong with pasta'. The restaurant itself is up a flight of stairs an into quite pleasant surroundings with italian street scenes on the wall so good first impressions. The waiter was polite and offered us a menu with a reasonable selection. Myself and my partner chose differnt dishes. The meals arrived and she commented that her pasta was tasteless. A thin watery sauce was swimming around her pasta. I tasted her meal and can confirm there was no taste from her dish. My meal looked better on the eye but again was tasteless.
We both drank our wine and left the pasta dishes.
I did not think it was worth complaining for the sake of £5 each and as i had handed my voucher over there seemed no point.
In conclusion nice surroundings, nice waiter, very poor food.

Went here on a Saturday night at 1930 in a party of six and found not a lot on offer
Maybe due to 50,000 kasabian fans in Leicester
Lovely hosts but being a new restaurant they need to make their mark as a restaurant with good food
Going to return in a month and see if things have improved as there is a lot of potential here!!
