Located in an historic building opposite the new Victoria Quarter in Leeds, in the middle of the Art Quarter, just across the road from the West Yorkshire Playhouse Theatre, Ipsum Vinoteca is the result of Andrea’s vision made reality by an Italian architect.

Andrea’s vision was a bright open space where the emphasis was on the food and the company, a place where people would sit together and talk and laugh, for hours. The architect opted for wood and stainless steel, two material, two colors, the light yellow of the wood and the dark grey of the stainless steel, two colors that sit on the opposite side on the color wheel and also fit with the history and character of the building hosting Ipsum Vinoteca and its concept.

Open 7 days a week, from morning to late night, Ipsum Vinoteca is a place for every time of the day, a place to enjoy and have a conversation.


The restaurant and bar

Our restaurant, with only 5 tables, wants to offers a unique experience with a daily changing menu with a handful of freshly cooked dishes featuring the best and freshest locally sourced ingredients, with the option of having pairing wines or choosing your favourite, 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 everything from coffees to sandwiches, to pasta, to cheeses and charcuteries platters all freshly made accompanied by one of the biggest selections of wines, craft beer, spirits, soft drink in the UK all made by Italian small producers.
