Located in an historic building just opposite the Victoria Quarter in Leeds and across the road from the Playhouse, Ipsum Vinoteca is an award winning enoteca, Italian for wine bar, and a gourmet restaurant in a bright, open space made of wood and stainless steel to remind of the vines and the land designed by an Italian architect. Open 7 days a week, from morning to late night, Ipsum Vinoteca is a place for every time of the day and any occasion, from a morning espresso to an end of the day glass of wine, from sandwiches to a formal three course meal.


The restaurant and bar

Our restaurant, with only 5 tables, wants to offers a unique experience with a handful of dishes featuring the best, freshest and seasonal ingredients all sourced locally, within 30 miles of Leeds, freshly cooked changed daily, with the option of having pairing wines or choose your own, from our 300+ only Italian wine list.

The restaurant is by booking only due to the daily menu and is open 7 days a week, lunch and dinner. If our meat, fish and vegetables are locally sourced, all our cheeses and charcuteries are imported directly from small Italian producers.

Our award winning wine bar, separate from the restaurant and open to everyone, not just our restaurant guests, is open all day 7 days a week, offering from coffees and morning pastries to sandwiches and business lunches to cheeses and charcuteries platters.

Ipsum Vinoteca is also a shop selling wines, craft beer, spirits and much more, all imported by our sister company, Italyabroad.com.
