Old and tired little back street restaurant (they call it rustic!!!). Very poor choice of drinks from the tiny bar literally in front of the main door (inadequate comfortable waiting room whilst having a pre drink before dinner ~ not relaxing or enjoyable). The Pinot Grigio at £18 a bottle was not a good quality wine. I ordered grilled chicken... More

The first time I've ever been to a resaurant with no name over the door and as it's in a quiet back street, it took some finding, although the map from the web site was very helpful. the restaurant was quiet, which is probably not unusual for a January mid-week lunch. The staff were friendly and attentive and quick to... More

The place is very cosy. The ground floor has a better atmosphere, than upstairs. The food was delicious. I had a monkfish and it was very special. Also, they have a nice selection of Italian wines and cocktails. But! The place is always busy and we were rushed all the time . "Choose your food quickly!" "Eat quicker!" ...etc We... More

Step through the unmarked green door to a friendly and professional greeting. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the staff were attentive and efficient. The food was lovely; simple but expertly cooked and very, very tasty. Only down side is that when busy, can feel cramped and is very loud.

Came to this restaurant on a recommendation. My mum has walked by this place countless times but never knew it was a restaurant until a friend told us about it. Small little place, not a lot of room to move but it was still nice. It's very popular, many customers were there when we arrived and lots were waiting when... More

I'm not sure I understand the appeal of this place... it's almost as if you are taken in by its 'rustic' charm. The food is ok but nothing more. My starter, Gamberoni (prawns in tomato sauce), this arrives with cooked prawns in their shell submerged in sauce and a complimentary wet wipe. By the time I'd managed to carefully unwrap... More

We visited at the start of December in a group. It was very busy with large tables so we knew that there would probably be a wait for food but it was very long, upon asking the waitress how long our starters would be she was agitated and said "yes I know, I know, not long" So service could have...

The hidden gem in Leicestershire dining, hidden away, modest interior , but fantastic food, prepared expertly and served by folks that care! Not simply an Italian themed restaurant, the real deal. I love this place, Francesco and the team deserve medals👍👍👍👍👍

We had a one course lunch just before Christmas. We both enjoyed our meal - the meat was served with salad and chips. The ladies who served us were friendly and attentive. My only moan is that there was only an a la carte menu and not a set menu as well. Try this restaurant - it will be well... More
