Having visited for the first time in February with friends we thought we would take family to celebrate a birthday meal. Although they were reluctant due to a previous bad visit we told them how great it was! Very friendly welcome, however the lemonade on tap needed changing as we were served what tasted like soda & up on bringing... More

My first visit with group of work colleagues. We pre-ordered from the menu as we were limited for time. We were shown to our table promptly and drink orders taken. I had ordered the Bresaola salad for £8.50. This was a main course salad it consisted of a hand full of rocket a sliced raw mushroom , some raw asparagus,... More

As a business traveller to the UK I depend on TripAdvisor to find quality restaurants in remote areas of England. I was recently staying at the Leicester Marriott and needed to find a "fine dining" restaurant in the area (not a small feat). Based on all of the previous rankings in the Leicester area it appeared that burger joints and... More

Cini has massive potential to be a stunning restaurant but sadly it doesn't provide what you'd expect from an expensive restaurant . The menu is extensive and the wine list is good . The food we ordered was cooked well and presentation was excellent however, very small portions and very overpriced . Service wasn't great although the staff seemed friendly... More

I went twice recently for work purposes. Both times my meal was lovely. The trio or sorbets was particularly good. There is a very wide range to choose from but sadly only if you are a meat eater. There are only a couple of veggie options which lets down this otherwise very nice place!

I ate here as a group of 10 straight from work. It was my first visit but some of the group had been several times before. The venue is bright and modern and the service was excellent. The food was delicious and nicely presented. I enjoyed it very much and will definitely be returning.

Went here for a lunch with some friends and had heard very good things about this restaurant so was expecting high quality food and ambience , was seriously disappointed. Its not the cost element I have an issue with although it is poor value for money , its more the blatant arrogance of the restaurant being in a niche area... More

We've lived in Rugby for several years and have only just discovered Cini on the recommendation of friends. We went last night and were delighted. It's been around since the owners converted an old pub in about 2002 apparently and to still have such high standards is great. I had the swordfish carpaccio and risotto which were both lovely, but... More

Excellent food and service - have always found the staff really polite. We went with my whole family last year, including my sister in law who is Sardinian, and she thought it excellent. They even made a special Italian dessert for my brother which was not on the menu. I went again more recently for a friend's birthday lunch -... More
