First visit with some friends.

The scallop stater was particularly memorable. The fish was fresh and a good portion - the steak served as ordered. The ladies had prosecco to start with and... More

I've been to Oggi quite a few times over the last few years and I absolutely love it there. It's a cosy restaurant, and serves absolutely delicious food. I especially love the bruschetta with pepperoni/salami on top. I'll still keep going back.

Friendly, efficient staff, food was very nice, decent portions. A small restaurant, busy but not cramped, close to De Montfort Hall made it ideal for a pre-show meal.

Finally got a table booked to try out oggi for a friends birthday, I had previously tried to book a table and they have been fully booked so for future reference always book a few weeks in advance if you can especially for a weekend. We arrived and was seated. Menus were brought over promptly and drinks arrived. Had a... More

Three of us visited the restaurant while in town to attend my graduation ceremony at the University of Leicester. It was a lovely little restaurant. It was quite tiny, so anyone who feels claustrophobic in smaller spaces may not enjoy dining here. Because of the small space, you definitely should call ahead and book a reservation.The food was delicious. After... More

This was our first visit, based on a recommendation, and we were not disappointed. The staff were extremely courteous and attentive and the standard of the interior was pleasing, we were not placed too near other diners and their was a gentle buzz of conversations that added to the general ambience. My husband chose the large prawns in a rich... More

visited on a Sunday evening on a 5.30 sitting, thought this would be too early but turned out to be perfect. Modern, warm and intimate. comfortable chairs and mood lighting. olives with garlic and chili come out as a complimentary gesture and were very tasty. we had calamari and mushrooms and both starters were very moorish these came with complimentary...

It is not always wise to eulogise when recommending a restaurant as peoples tastes and opinions differ, and this was my thought process on revisiting Oggi's prior to a show last week ,with some friends who were paying a first visit there. I need not have worried.!! On any score ,The Service ,Wine ,Food, was all First Class and without... More
