A special occasion meal so splashed out .The atmosphere was busy and intimate. The service was refined and friendly. The scallops were divine and when I asked for a description of the wine choice ,the waiter described the taste :like hay slowly dried in the sun. He was correct and it was lovely.

Low key eatery with efficient and friendly service. Typical pan-Italian fare with ever changing "specials". Using more fish than north Italian restaurants Oggi gets the best of quality local ingredients as well as the best of Italy. King prawns are the spiciest and the tortellini are A1 quality. Excellent wine list. Not the cheapest: reckon on £30+ per head.

We had reserved our table at 7pm and were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant already buzzing with diners. This gave the restaurant a great atmosphere, which continued throughout the evening. I have some allergies, and the waiter was able to advise about everything very confidently. We shared the bruschetta to start, then I had the penne arrabbiata whilst my... More

I was expecting a little more from this restaurant, and felt a little let down. I had a starter and main course from the Specials Menu. I began with scallops which I love and so could find little fault but then I had the chef's special ravioli which was filled with smoked salmon in a tomato sauce. I could taste... More

I've been here a few times now and the food is always fresh, delicious and cooked to perfection! A very relaxed atmosphere management are brilliant and considerate locking the door so one of my friends didn't get a draft! I would recommend this restaurant as a must for a lovely evening with amazing food!

We were attending our sons graduation from Leicester university and wanted somewhere to have lunch after the event. As we wanted to eat at about 2 pm it was difficult to find anywhere willing to stay open. OGGIs was really good and stayed open especially for us. Food was good and service efficient and friendly.

Read a lot about this one so went one evening to try it. The 1st impression of the restaurant doesn't give you my kind of Italian feeling and on top of that the waiters and service was extremely standard/ normal. Food was nothing special too. I ordered. Grilled Seabass as main and garlic asparagus as starters. Both were standard and... More

We visited Oggi for a late lazy Sunday afternoon lunch. All four of our meals (starters and mains) were exceptional - empty plates all round! I would definitely recommend the scallops and veal - fabulous! I hadn't been before but will absolutely be back!
