Amazing food! Amazing service! Always a warm welcome! Best anti pasto in Leeds and the variety of pasta and pizza is great. Don’t forget to book though!

We have visited this restaurant twice now, each time for an impromptu daytime meal, as today. Bizarrely we temporarily overlooked it being Valentines Day (how?!) until walking in to the attractively balloon festooned restaurant. The initial ‘human’ welcome was a little lack lustre, as we...More

Visit Trattoria Il Forno and try their Sea Bass special. Really tasty and very good value for money. You are always welcomed with a smile! By all means try the rest but then come to the best Italian in Leeds in my opinion.

Seriously you will not find better quality food and service!! We’ve been coming for years and recommended it to family and friends many times, who also love it. Authentic and quality food all round, starters, Pizza, pastas, salads and not to mention the puddings 👌🏼

Arrived in Leeds after flying in from Sydney last Friday with my 20y.o. daughter and settled on Italian for dinner after a nap. After consulting TripAdvisor for recommendations, I decided on Trattoria Il Forno. After several unsuccessful attempts to book online (It wouldn't accept my...More
