I visited oggi's for the first time after many people had recommended it and it did not disappoint. The food, wine and ambiance was all spot on. The staff were attentive and friendly, food was amazing and the atmosphere was lovely. We will definitely be returning as there's lots on the menu that I want to try. Highly recommend the... More

We visited Oggi for my birthday treat, our first visit. The table was booked for 7.30pm, which appeared to be a good time, between the pre-theatre goers and later bookings. The service was of a high standard, with very attentive staff. Lots of menu choices, plus a 'specials' board. The food was excellent! The scallops were cooked to perfection, as... More

Amazing food, amazing service. After calling the day before new years eve never thinking they would fit us in they made room for me and my boyfriend at 8pm. We had the 3 course set menu which was fantastic with lots of choice. Our favourite Italian in Leicester, thank you again Oggi for a wonderful New years Eve.

First time at this restaurant because I do not like driving into Leicester. We do try and eat at the better places because we can afford to. Oggi is in my opinion the best Italian Restaurant in Leicestershire. We arrived early evening, were met by a charming waiter, we had to wait 15 minutes for our other guests to arrive.... More

We go regularly and have always had an excellent meal, served by warm and welcoming staff in a really good buzzy atmostsphere. The menu is pretty extensive and the... More

Firstly, nothing inside indicates that you are in Italian restaurant. Secondly, my partner ordered tortellini beef porcini, which was salty, beef seemed very dry and he had a diarrhoea all evening. Thirdly, waitress had a dirty shirt and it was just beginning of the evening. Finally, the price on the menu was the same as in Zizzi, however Zizzi has... More

Tasteful decor, excellent service, and pleasant staff! We had garlic bread with cheese, and we also had bruschetta oggi for our starters. All were amazing! We also had the penne al salmone and the spaghetti futti di mare, both unforgettable! Definitely best Italian in Leicester!

Nothing ostentatious about this place, not a wildly adventurous menu, but excellently done and very tasty. Recommended!

I never ever leave a review but I felt I just had too after how amazing OGGI's had been. I called earlier in the day to book a table for 8, I was told I wouldn't be able to get a table, the gentlemen on the phone took my number, called everyone who was booked in and moved people around... More
