Found this place on a recent visit to Leicester. What a lovely friendly little restaurant. Food was delicious and very fresh. Inexpensive and worth a visit. Right near The Curve theatre.

Great menu, good wine, excellent starters, lovely fresh pasta, fish and meat, served with real well cooked vegetables. The best Negroni this side of Verona and the best chocolate mousse in England. Lovely people and a happy congenial atmosohere. One of our favourtite places to eat.
