Despite not noticing this restaurant even though it is on a main route into Leicester. I found myself going with a friend on their recommendation. The food was good from starter to pudding, and I am keen on Italian cooking. The surroundings were pleasant. And the owners very friendly. Altogether a great evening and well worth seeking them out!

We try to eat here every month or 2. Easily our favourite restaraunt in Leicester. Just watch out for the Spanish Omlette trick by Pete!

Superb little Italian restaurant with a lovely laid back atmosphere. Recommend booking though as it gets extremely busy at weekends.

The newer branch is next to the City Spa adjacent to the new Highcross Shopping Centre and round the corner from Hotel Maiyango.

Highly recommended and i've yet to be disappointed.

A tiny restaurant that manages to feel tucked away and is easy to miss despite being on one of the busiest routes into Leicester, this neighbourhood Italian is reliable if not exceptional.

On our visit this week (the first in a couple of years), we turned up on a quiet weeknight with no reservation and got quite a surly welcome which seemed strange as the place was almost empty. When we ordered wine and plenty of food, the waiter became noticeably friendlier towards us. Wine was good value, food was OK. Good olives, tasty and simple pasta dishes. A shame that the welcome wasn't warmer as the dining room is nicely decorated and feels very cosy.

Prefers cash over credit card payments.
