“Good atmosphere however mixed bag...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good service and welcome however as we were a large party we had a real mixed bag of food quality. Risotto good but lasagne not - tiramusu lovely but starter with olives heavily balsamic. Overall we thought it good but room for improvement and expensive for what it was. If it had been cheaper then would have got 5 stars.

“Nice Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Good Italian food and efficient service too. Not overly fussy or romantic decor, but the pizzas and pasta dishes are recommended. Service is straightforward. The Italian proprieter seems passionate about his job, which is always good to see.

“An Italian welcome with authentic Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

How could I have left Lepone's out after rating Prezzo recently ? Both are Italian but very different, as this charming family operation should have a higher profile for all things authentic in Italian cuisine ,which is what they are about in style of cooking, presentation and hospitality .
Very child friendly whilst retaining a warm and inviting ambience for adults too . No need to talk about my preferences, as if you love Italian food and a bit of little Italy in Oswestry, please visit.

“Excellent....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went there last night and it was superb, nice atmosphere, busy, but not too full to make it uncomfortable.
Lovely welcome, and good service…and most of all excellent food. We have been there a few times before and will definitely be going back 5*****

“21st birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

went to leopones last week for my sons 21st birthday ,i called in the day with some table decorations and a cake which carolyn the owners wife said she would sort out . when we arrived the table had been decorated and the restaurant was busy,we where made very welcome by all the staff. the food was lovely my husband had the seafood pancake to start and said it was beautiful,i had creamy mushrooms which i loved the others had garlic bread. i had the fillet steak which i think was the best i have had in a long time it melted in my mouth and was like butter to cut. the others had pizzas which they said were nice ,my husband had chilli tomatoe pasta which was also full of flavour we had a lovely night even though my son was embarassed about the cake and warned me not to sing Happy Birthday, well done paolo and carolyn we enjoyed our night.
