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!
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
amazing food, service and very friendly :). I would high recommend this place to anyone whether its a special occasion, or just a night out.
Fabulous ambience. Very different restaurant. Amazing food beautifully presented If you are looking for somewhere to go that is that little bit different this is a good place. Very friendly accommodating staff too
The owner was very hands on, and was very nice. I felt the dining area was a bit dark, and it was a bit stuffy, mostly with it being such a small area. The food came out in reasonable time, but that's part of my concern. As a fellow italian, I find it disturbing that someone would put chips as a side for pasta, it's just not okay. The food was delicious, but I'm also worried that some food might have been microwaved just due to the speed that the food came out, but overall delicious food, great staff, would definetly recommend to at least try once!
I was rather disappointed in the small choice of menu of Italian foods, and what was, on offer was obviously micro waved hence the prawns for example were extremely chewy. The service was excellent but with only one person, (who was very very pleasant), present greeting, seating, taking orders, cooking food, serving foods, clearing the table and presenting the bill.. For the quality and choice of food I found it to be a rather expensive night out
Cheiko's in Oadby has great food and a great atmosphere. The service is attentive and prompt. The menu is well thought out and rather lovely. Great Sciccilian food with a certain flair. Highly recommend
Although this restaurant is decorated very nice, it doesn't take away from the fact that it is in the living room of an end terrace. This ultimately leads to a very cosy restaurant with 8 tables squeezed into this living room. Service was slow with just one young boy serving us all with the manager/owner only appearing to tell him off for something. The food was very poor. I had bruschetta which can only be described as a cheese filled roll covered in pizza sauce. I couldn't even eat half. My main was lamb shank, and despite being near enough £20 pound plus £5 for vegatables, it was inedible. It needed to be forced off the bone in little chunks. Not what I'd expect for a lamb shank. The only wine served by the glass was the house wine which was the worst wine I've ever tasted. It's safe to say we won't be returning.
Delicious food and friendly staff and great service. I love the decor - each table set differently. There is a great range of dishes for vegetarian, pescatarian and meat eaters.
Food ok. Napkins dirty. No parking. Staff had a go at us when we told him we had a food deal. Not going back again
