Wondered if it would be too quiet on a Sunday evening. No. It was about half full and there was enough of a buzz to make it feel comfortable. I had popped in during Saturday evening to make the reservation, the place was full and it was very vibrant. The food was very tasty indeed - clearly... read more

First visit to new restaurant site. Much improved premises now at 18A Oswald Road, Oswestry. Friendly reception from owner chef who always appears to be on hand. Slightly understaffed on the night we visited, however only opened a few weeks previous. Food excellent as usual.

We went for a family birthday celebration but none of us had a really good meal (we were 4) and considering the low cost of the raw ingredients, we had 2 pasta meals and 2 pizzas, it was expensive. Sorry, but as this restaurant is owned and run by Italians I expected better. Won't rush back.

Stumbled upon this lovely new restaurant on a visit to Oswestry, it was recommended by a couple of local ladies, in the town. The venue itself is stunning - very well done! On our lunch visit the sun was powering through the various high period windows, making the perfect setting for a lunch with Nan. The owners were very happy... More

7 of us had a great night Lepones yesterday. The food was superb, the menu has a good variety, from simple and very reasonably priced pizzas through to fillet steak. My wife had the fillet steak Cooked in Barolo wine sauce. It was one of the best steak dishes I've tasted in a long while! This was our first visit... More

There were 9 in our party. We chose a range of dishes, most 3 courses, the remainder 2. Details were willingly explained and questions answered readily. Time needs to be allowed for preparation, but it is well worth waiting patiently. The ambiance was a delight, the conversion work on the former Chapel is particularly effective. We will be returning, whenever... More

Went with friends for meal here, having never been before. Firstly I cannot fault the food which was very good, although my main meal came on a cold plate hence the food soon went cool. Our wine wasn't chilled and twice we had to ask for a wine cooler. Likewise with a jug of water, we had to ask twice.... More
