Great food in an intimate setting. The place envelops you in an elegant, old world Italian way with a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs, veal parm, and salmon. Also a nice bar with a good vibe. High quality without being pretentious.

My wife got the salmon and said it was fantastic. I got a filet and while the flavor was excellent they were not able to get it medium. I asked them to cook it a little longer to a medium temperature and they tried but still not to medium. But overall great flavor in both dishes.

We have not been to Lenora's since Fall 2013. The restaurant has been redecorated slightly and now have a band [a trio] performing at least Fridays. We asked for a table closer to the front and got one. The meal we had included ravioli stuffed with mushrooms topped with Alfredo sauce. This was delicious. Following the appetizer, Janice had half... More

This restaurant is wonderful for date nights, special occasions, or just treats. The salmon was the best I've ever had in my life. We went for graduation dinner and it honestly could not have been better.

It took me a while to realize this was a restaurant. You have to walk down a long hallway from N. Lamar to get to the host station. The food here is excellent. I also enjoy getting a drink at the bar with a friend. You won't be disappointed!

We took a candidate to dinner at Lenora's on a Sunday night. They were pretty busy, but by no means full. We only ordered entrees, but the wait was pretty long. There was no acknowledgement of the delay by anyone. Our food was good for all in the party, but the wait was not ideal especially when we were entertaining... More

Their recipe for spaghetti is from the owners Italian mother. It is wonderful. All of their pastas are really good-- the best in Oxford.

Family met old friend there for dinner. Elegant but warm and comfortable. Good variety of classic Italian, closer to finer dining, bill for four of us was $155 including 4 entree's, appetizer, 2 desserts and a modest bottle of Riesling German white wine ($20). Very nice for couples and older families. Perfect for special occasions.

Good atmosphere. Bar good. Big crowd. But shortcomings with restaurant. Some entrees right on. Others a complete miss. Go with the duck. Excellent. Service with our original waiter deplorable.

Had a great meal with family while attending freshman orientation for our son at Ole Miss. Filet was perfect. Our son had the Shrimp and Crawfish Mac and practically licked the bowl. Great, friendly service...but it's Oxford, should I expect anything less? Well done. Looking forward to a return visit.
