When a restaurant has been family owned and operated for over twenty years, with a menu that’s brimming with home-cooked Italian cuisine alongside a very carefully curated wine list, well, you know it’s going to be special. That is exactly what is on offer at Cheikho's in Oadby, located in a quiet spot on Leicester Road, just off the High Street. Their warm and passionate service, delicious Italian fare and cosy and unpretentious atmosphere is really what makes this Leicester trattoria the local favourite that it is. Stop in for some fresh pasta with chargrilled chicken in a basil and mushroom sauce, or a traditional melange alla parmigiana, and of course always leave room for their homemade tiramisu. Just be sure to book though, as they fill up faster than you can say buon appetito!
Sam was the perfect host as usual as we visited on a Tuesday evening table for 4 . I would think that service would be delayed on a busy Friday or Saturday evening with only Sam and one chef
Lovely service and great food. Lovely atmosphere. Would go again
Nice food and I like the atmosphere too at this place
