Just gets better

We have been visiting Lepones for years. The welcome is always wonderful and the food excellent. They also have a great wine list and make a mean cocktail. The new building looks great and the staff (lots of them) are always very friendly and attentive. The only place to go for authentic Italian.

My mother and I went here for lunch the other day as we had heard mixed reviews and wanted to give it a go. The whole place has been done out to a high standard and the big black boards with cocktails on and the bar look nice. It's all very clean and the toilets are also modern. The waiting... More

Excellent food, and good customer service from the staff. However the experience was spoiled by arrogant and aggressive owner, who tried to overcharge us, refused to acknowledge the delay in serving meals (when the restaurant was empty), and was extremely rude. Overcharged by £15 and told 'never to come back again'. Don't worry, we wont. The owner needs to learn... More

Firsty can I say that Lepones will not tolerate abusive behaviour from customers to staff and management, and unfortunately this man was extremely aggresive and abusive to staff. There are always 2 sides to every story which he has conveniently not mentioned. The restaurant when this man left was a very busy Friday night and we managed to re-arrange some... More

I've visited the old premises before and had a lovely meal, however we decided to visit the new premises for a late Sunday afternoon meal, we were the only people in there and the staff were cleaning around us, a bit off putting when you're dining! The tables lacked a centre piece and there was no atmosphere, dance music playing... More

We were looking forward to dining with our friends here but left feeling slightly disappointed. The building has been refurbished very tastefully with lots of tables and a galleried seating area. The menu choice was good but when we came to order our drinks there was no draught beer on and they had run out of small bottles of Prosecco,... More

We were regulars at the previous premises so were looking forward to visiting the new site. First impressions were a little bit of an anticlimax, this is a converted church and it has been tastefully done but lacks any wow factor. It is a large open space with a bar where the church organ once was. The service was okay,... More

I'm vegetarian and I often struggle to find good food in the local areas of Oswestry. I was recommended to try Lepones and I've been going for a couple of years. Their food is local and made on premises and their ice cream is sourced from Italy so it's authentic and tasty. I love the last premises but their new... More

I always enjoyed visiting in the old premises, however at the new location I wasn't overly enthusiastic with the menu & portion sizes were not value for money at all...I attended with a party of 7 & we all felt the same, portion sizes very disappointing. Will not be returning in a hurry sadly.

The food is always first class but the service was awful. ..they were more interested in the larger tables. We weren't asked if we wanted dessert or even coffee . Will think twice about going again
