There are some very nice Italian restaurants in Leicester and this has to be one of the best. Very good food and service. The Lasagne was superb. Would certainly visit again

I'd never really noticed Oggi and I have travelled up and down London Road countless times. I, however, spotted the restaurant on Trip Advisor and noticed everyone was saying great things about it, so naturally I decide to pay it a visit as well! After eating there, I can say all those other 5 star reviews were spot on. As... More

We made our first visit to Oggi on the basis of Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The decor was modern and tasteful and the atmosphere very welcoming. The staff were pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. As far as the food was concerned we could not fault it, for me the stand out dishes were the sea bass main... More

Nice looking restaurant that I wasn't aware of. Went in as we were passing by after a night out. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and decor. Despite being very busy, the food arrived quickly and was well presented on baking hot plates...just as it should be! The menu isn't huge, but theres something for everyone on there. Would certainly go again!!... More

The food were delicious and the staffs were kind. The quantity of food was also enough even if you are really hungry.

Visited Oggi for the second time last night with a table booking of 15 people. To ensure the food was prepared for we were sent the Specials in the morning to have all our orders in for 5pm. To start they were very accommodating with custom made meal orders, when we arrived (late) they didn't mind at all and started... More

What a gem and, just round the corner from the De Montfort Hall, it was ideal for a pre-show meal! Friendly and efficient service along with some authentically Italian food in a clean, bright restaurant made for a very pleasant and enjoyable eating experience. The brushetta maybe lacked a little in flavour but the Penne al Salmone was creamy without... More

Before going to see the Brendon Cole show at the theatre, we had pre booked a meal at this restaurant initially because it was close to the venue. What a great choice!! The room was classily decorated and cosy and the atmosphere was good as the place was almost full. The staff were all very charming and efficient and the... More

We visited last night as a table for six. The welcome was lovely as was the attentive but not intrusive service throughout the evening. We all commented on how delightful our food was - that's all six of us and every course. The Bardolino red wine was an excellent choice and went down just a little too quickly! But that... More
