Had an excellent meal, ordered the monk fish, it came fresh and looked vibrant. The staff were friendly and professional,I liked the way you could see the kitchen, which I hasten to state was immaculate. Please have a meal here you will be impressed.

Visited cini for the first time, was really impressed. Made to feel very welcome from the off and was given good time to study the menu. Started with marinara bread, best I've ever had and was followed by chilli crab penne, had good kick which I was hoping for, delicious! Very pleased with service and had a really good atmosphere,...

I was looking forward to visiting CINI as I have always heard good things about the restaurant. However, though the restaurant has nice modern and simple settings with cool interiors, the food and service was average! We saw the menu online and pre-ordered and when the bill came we were charge a few quid more than the price we saw... More

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!
