The whole experience was really enjoyable and surpassed my expectations from start to finish. A lovely atmosphere, efficient and knowledgable staff and delicious food and wine. Our party enjoyed a selection of dishes from... More

Attending the area for a gig and luckily booked this restaurant in advance as the place was busy with hardly an empty table visible. We arrived 20 minutes early and shown to our table. Menus were presented along with a dish of olives to enjoy whilst perusing. The menu is good but the specials board caught our attention. Plenty of... More

Quite a few people have recommended OGGI. We went early evening 5.30, we are a family of 5 including 2 young girls and the staff were very attentive and the food was simply magical. Scallops were delicious, my dad had canneoni and I had the mixed fish plate - all were very, very nice. Really pleased to find a gem... More

I've been to Oggi several times and have always been thoroughly impressed by the food, service and atmosphere of the restaurant. Recently visited with a group of friends for a birthday lunch. Most of the group hasn't been before, and all said they'd definitely return again afterwards. There's always a good variety of "Special's" to complete the regular menu. Oggi... More

This restaurant was booked after looking on trip advisor for a restaurant near De Montford Hall as we were attending a concert there. The reviews were excellent so we pre booked a couple of days before which was a good move as many people arriving on spec were turned away. We chose the starter from the specials board and then...

My girlfriend and I came here for an evening meal on a Sunday and were politely greeted by the staff who sat us down at our table promptly. For the meal I had the salt en bocca, which was absolutely divine, and my girlfriend had the tortellini which was lovely and rich and creamy. For dessert we shared the profiteroles... More
