Great to find a really good Italian in Leicester. Excellent pasta dish with good espresso and Amaro to finish. I only went for lunch but will be back to sample the rest of the menu.

Always a good choice of fish and plenty of specials. Very friendly and a good atmosphere. Never had a bad meal and if anything they've improved from their predecessors, Senor Panza

The restaurant is situated on London Road, towards Victoria park. Oggi is fairly small and apparently very popular. Staff are attentive, polite and eager to please. The food is well-prepared, well-presented and delicious and the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Our experience was very enjoyable and very good value.

Delicious food- I had the bruschetta starter and sea bass main course, great bottle of prosecco and excellent service. It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was empty when we arrived but it filled up quickly. I would recommend it highly and just wish... More
