Possibly the best pizza I've had in the Leeds area... thin, crispy and tasty base with plenty of toppings. The starters and my wife's pasta were good too. No issues with the service. Good value as the Hi-Life 2 for 1 card is accepted here - only problem is that they marked the card so that they won't accept it... More

Cafe Marinetti is your classic Italian. Great atmosphere, great staff and most importantly great food. Would recommend booking as it's very popular. Very good menu with a large selection of dishes. Meal for 2 with wine £60 they also have early bird offers.

Visited last night and have to say, they need new chefs. My girlfriend had the fish goujons which may as well have been still alive swimming in oil. The waiter then brought out the tartare sauce, which was just in a massive bowl that had been sat on the counter and had what was like a film on top. For... More

I have eaten at this restaurant half a dozen times - the food is generally good but the atmosphere from the staff is always extremely uncomfortable - more like Manuel from Faulty Towers. The older male waiter constantly grunts and makes the simplest of things difficult - e.g. arranging the table/cutlery was a nightmare! An example - He asked if... More

Great food, good price and can stumble home from there. What more could you want? Good range of meals, wine reasonably priced.

The menu offers a comprehensive selection of traditional Italian dishes and pizzas.The staff are very friendly and... More

This was my second visit after coming in Nov 2016, and the food was just as good the second time around. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the menu is varied and the pricing is good. We all had the pizza/calzone and each one was fresh and well made.

we had lunch for the first time on a cold Tuesday lunchtime in September and were surprised to find some diners already seated, we opted for the set two course and were not disappointed the starters of pasta and a soup were both piping hot and delicious, our main course was typical Italian pastas and a pizza washed down with...

Called in for a meal as we were new to the area. We were made very welcome and shown to a nice table for 2. Food and drink ordered without delay. The restaurant was very busy with most tables taken, but this did not effect the service. Both meals were brought to the table and the quality and service could... More

A local family run Italian restaurant with food cooked by people who care about what they send out of the kitchen. Neither smart, fashionable or pretentious, it is what it is, a down to earth restaurant serving a wide variety of delicious home cooking style Italian dishes made with high quality fresh ingredients by people who care.
