Our restaurant, made of 5 tables and by bookings only, is open 7 days a week and offers a unique, gourmet experience. Our philosophy is using only the best, freshest, in season and local ingredients and highlight their flavours, like my mum and grandma before her does. All our dishes are freshly prepared, cooked, carefully thought and presented. Our food cannot be defined Italian, however, it has the Italian approach to food at its heart, morning trips to the market and buying fresh.

Our menu is changed daily based on the availability of the ingredients and freshly cooked and gives the option to have paring wines for each course.

The restaurant has been thought so that your experience focuses on the food and wine and allows you to spend time and enjoy the company you are with, and our service is attentive without being intrusive, and it starts the moment you sit down and are given a complimentary selection of 48H fermented sourdough breads, Italian extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar to take you to Italy without leaving Leeds.

Our food

All our food is sourced from small producers, Italian farms for cheeses and charcuteries and other specialties such as truffles or Buffalo mozzarella, and local suppliers for meat, fish and vegetables. We have one meat supplier that brings us the best local meats, all grass fed, except for our wild venison and game. Our beef, lamb, pork and venison are also aged in Himalayan salt chambers, losing on weight but improving in flavour and tenderness.

Our fish is bought daily from the Leeds market just across the road from us, and our vegetable are locally sourced and we do our best to use in season British vegetables. All our ingredients are fresh,nothing comes frozen

Our ingredients aren’t cheap, best ingredients rarely are, but we think it's worth it.

Finally our wine list, it goes hand in hand with our food. We love wine and we love Italian wines and believe that a great wine adds value to the experience and an extra dimension to the food. Our wine list, awarded "Best Italian Wine List” in the UK at the Italian English Awards, includes one of the biggest Italian wine selection, constantly growing, in the country with more than 300 great, wines from small producers. From Aosta Valley to Pantelleria we have a wine for every palate and taste.
