Was very surprised to find a restaurant like this in in the centre of Leicester, the interior is classy and near the stairs are many photos of celebrities that have dined there: including Ronaldo and Sven Goran eriksson! The waiters didn't seem very attentive or polite to us (it was not busy then either) but the lovely food made up for it with reasonable prices and a very big selection. My partner had the tigers pizza which was very filling and good value for money. I had a white wine sauce pasta with mussells-the portion was not the biggest but it was very rich so probably just as well really! Would recommend and visit again.

It is upmarket, glamorous and glitsy.
I would normally take clients there as it is warrants an experience impress.
Food sometimes is excellent, sometimes is good and sometimes I get food poisoning. So stopped the oysters after 2 attempts of being poisoned.
The lobster is good.
Menu is interesting and varied.
Specials are good.
Wines are good too.

Went here early on a Monday evening with my grown up daughter. The restaurant is attractively set out with classy table settings and lots of well presented Italian speaking waiters. The staff were very attentive and showed us to a window table which was ideal. The Pizza Italia was to die for - the best I've had outside Italy. Very generous amounts of prosciutto and a good size. I was full by the time i'd finished but couldn't resist the Creme Brulee for dessert. This was also of a very high standard. My daughter had a trio of sorbets which she really enjoyed. Although some reviews comment that this restaurant is not cheap, I think it is good value for money and our two course meals with drinks came to about £35. Not bad and well worth it for the lovely surroundings.
