Great Italian

The best steak I have had in the U.K. Great service and ambiance. Absolutely no negatives, drinks were reasonable, wide range of choice. Meals were all very well regarded by the party of 9, all having different dishes. The steaks could have been a tad larger, but the sauce made up for the size in... read more

Visited recently as a party of 12. Originally a party of 7, we called an hour ahead of arriving to change it to a party of 12, they could accommodate this but an hour later than planned. We arrived hungry. Eager to order as soon as possible, the food seemed to take an age, and it possibly bordered on doing... More

We had a beautiful dinner here. I took bruschetta with goats cheese and my husband took antipasto Mediterranean as a starters ( superb) . As a main we had spaghetti with mushroom and Italian sausage and crespelle ( delicious). It has been the first time that we've found a real Italian restaurant near Chester. They make homemade pasta and they... More

As soon as we entered we were welcomed by the staff in such a lovely manner. Once seated we had drinks followed by some of the nicest food I've ever eaten, honestly! Also, they have recently moved the restaurant into a larger premises and have done such a beautiful! I will definitely be going back there x

I used to love lepones. But since the move I've eaten here 3 times and have been under whelmed each time. I'm all for supporting local business, but lepones really need to turn this around. It's always been chaotic in lepones but this was one of the quirks to going there. The food was fairly bland and service not great.... More

Having been to opening night we were very impressed with the new venue. As we were in town shopping we called for a coffee and croissants . Good coffee and tasty croissants. We also called on evening for a meal which was very tasty and filling.My husband had the usual Barolla steak which was as good as ever. The atmosphere... More

The room is beautiful and gives an exciting impression. The environment is a little noisy and the proximity to other diners is off-putting. The dining experience was rushed. The first courses were delicious, the main courses were bland. The prices were reasonable apart from £6 for five small pieces of bread (between four adults) and a portion of olives.The waitress...

We have been to Lepone's previous location several times before and were only disappointed once (due to unforeseen staffing issues). This was our first visit to the new location and happy to say we were not disappointed at all. Service was excellent, the staff were courteous and efficient, the food was divine and the setting very agreeable. It was just... More

Since Moving to an old chapel there is a better atmosphere. Food was good, service was a little hap hazard. Drinks took a while to arrive and not the best table in the place - by the kitchen! I'd read other reviews and one had complained that they had been over charged. Because they didn't seem to know what they... More
