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!
Food was great and the ambience was lovely, pleasant decor, subdued lighting and gentle, quiet classical music playing in the background. Our host was ' Italian' attentive who was great at saying just the right things to his customers. Will go back!
Fantastic food, great atmosphere, fantastic service with a lovely welcome from the owner Sami who couldn’t do enough to help. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be going again
Imaginative menu, with very good food well prepared, good wine; really first class service throughout. Extremely helpful staff - two disabled guests accommodated on the ground floor and helped us to the car without being asked. Back again soon!! Patrick
