Special starters of gamberoni,, pate, the... More

We go regularly to Oggi as it is right by where we live. It is a simple, local Italian place, with unpretentious but delicious food and a nice low-key atmosphere. The service is friendly and efficient, the food is excellent and it is great value for money. We love it and will keep on returning. I would recommend it to... More

We visited Oggi on a Saturday night and luckily managed to book a table . Parked pretty close by at Victoria Park so very handy for that . Upon entering the bright clean restaurant we were immediately greeted by a very pleasant young lady who confirmed our booking and seated us immediately . The service throughout the evening was attentive... More

We were visiting the De Montfort Hall for a concert and had booked as previously the restaurant was busy. Now I understand why and will always book in advance. The restaurant is quaint and the staff so helpful and friendly. There is a really good menu and the quality simply fantastic. Excellent quality and excellent prices. Deco is lovely.

Treated to a meal here on Mother's day and was not disappointed. The menu has a good selection of dishes to choose from along with the blackboard offering daily specials. I chose monk fish which came with a side dish of beautifully cooked vegetables for around £16. There were 4 of us who all selected a different meal and all... More

This was my first visit to Oggi, I had eaten here under the previous owners and the food was always good. The new owners have taken it up a level - both the food and service were excellent. I can strongly recommend the Scallop Gratinata starter - it was delicious!!. The wine selection has improved as well.

An enjoyable family lunch. The service was very attentive and a nice touch was the complimentary olives and bread. A great specials board with lots of fresh fish all cooked to order. Highly recommended.

It was our first visit to OGGI and we weren't disappointed. The food and service was faultless. We particularly enjoyed the scallop starter and the mains were divine. We all had the Tiramasu which was the best I have ever had. It is a great independent Italian restaurant.
