“The best Italian restuarant in the area”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

This is not just a restaurant with good food, the staff are lovely and the welcome is very warm.

We found it 2 years ago when looking for a restuarant open on Bank holiday monday and although we live in Bradford and the rest of the family in Pontefract we travel there rather than going to one within walking distance. Most Italian restaurants are so samey but this one is different and the food is really tempting anad fresha nd the portions dont outface you. It is now our absolute number 1 favourite and its a good job we dont live any nearer.

“A fantastic hidden gem in Pudsey!”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Diva is a lovely place staffed with lovely people. We have been going regularly for years and it is by far our favourite restaurant in Leeds. On our last visit it was the first time we'd been out in months and they had a power cut. Instead of turning us away they offered to serve us outside and said the chef could still cook pasta. It was a really great night and the food was amazing as usual!

“A lovely little Italian”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

A friend introduced me to Diva a few years ago now and I've been back a many times with different friends and family. It feelslike you've stumbled on a secret place up the cobbled back street.
The food it delicious and has never dissapointed yet - although I nearly always opt for the homemade lasagne! The atmosphere is great and feels like an authentic Italian restaurant.

“Best Italian restaurant for miles”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

We've been coming here for years and it never fails to impress. An excellent summer and winter menu with a range of different specials that are always explained to you at the start of the meal. The staff are friendly, professional and attentive without being intrusive.
It's in a very intimate setting just off the main street in Pudsey and has a bar downstairs fro those who like a drink before their meal.
The ingredients are fresh and expertly cooked, whether it be Pasta, Pizza or Seafood. My personal favourite is the Suckling Pork with Roast Potatoes although the Lasagne is also excellent. The prices are reasonable for the quality of food and servive: we paid around £50 for two courses and drinks.
Our favourite restaurant by far and a we'll keep going back.
