A year after visiting this lovely little restaurant, four of us enjoyed another very nice evening here. Run by a husband and wife, it has a homely and cosy atmosphere. The smooth chicken liver pate starter came with a salad garnish and slices of toasted French bread - just yummy. The garlic mushrooms in a sauce were also so tasty.... More

A small intimate local restaurant, serving some fab specials, the duck was delicious as was the sea trout and sea bass, all served with freshly cooked stir fried seasonal veg. Staff n chef v friendly and the wine selection good, reasonably priced food and wine. Busy every night so booking is essential. A great find thanks to our foody friends.

This is a small and cosy Italian restaurant situated in the Meanwood area of Leds.....oh, and it is something of a revelation! The food is absolutely fantastic, and so much better than many other more imposing city centre eateries. The quality and preparation of the food is superb, and the tastes are to die for. Added tot his the staff... More

I've been wanting to come here for literally years despite living in Meanwood it's taken me a while to finally book and go, I was certainly not disappointed! The food is excellent, the tomato garlic bread - the best garlic bread I've ever eaten! Shared an aubergine parmigiana starter and had a pasta dish main, way too full for desert... More

We went here on a Thursday night after work for the first time without booking and arrived about 7.30pm. The restaurant was busy but the owner managed to sit us inside on the last table of a restaurant which does approximately 20 covers inside. After our arrival, the owner had to start turning people away who hadn't booked which is... More

A great little place, unpretentious and relaxing. As others have said, not in the same league as the bigger stylised restaurants which cost more and have bigger menus. The food is fresh, simply prepared and presented. They have a great specials board. We really enjoyed it. Staff warm and helpful. Reminds me of authentic, family- run restaurants in Europe.

Very relaxed and informal setting make it easy to enjoy the great food on offer. Head and shoulders above the pretentious San Carlos or Bibis. We love this restaurant. Simple, good, Italian food with a family feel. Well done.
