Best Italian Restaurants In Leeds

Wherever you go, you're bound to find a pretty trattoria serving up handcrafted pasta, freshly prepared pizzas, traditional mains and scrumptious antipasti. But there's a reason why Italian food is loved the world over - because it's so darn good. And if you're looking for Leeds' best Italian restaurants? Boy, do we have you covered...

Veeno Leeds

A cute and cosy bolthole, Veeno is certainly one of the best Italian restaurants in Leeds city centre. And while the exceptional wine list goes on for days, the cuisine showcases fresh pasta (including a luscious lasagne), cured meat and cheese boards, plus a range of bruschetta.

Pizza Fella

There's nothing quite like a perfectly fluffy crust, is there? That's why we love Neapolitan slices, something that Pizza Fella has refined to a tee. Grab yourself a seat in the cool, relaxed spot to indulge in wood-fired 'za covered using high-quality ingredients, with gelato to finish.

Rudy's Leeds

Championing the flavours of Naples, this slick, stylish haunt in the city centre has received national acclaim. The popular pizzeria slings out slices topped with things like 'nduja, wild boar salami, basil pesto and burrata, as well as plenty of vegan options.

Salvo's Restaurant

If you're on the hunt for the best restaurants in Leeds, Salvo's is a top shout. Alongside the Neapolitan pizzas, primi pasta plates and antipasti, there's a whole load of classic dishes to get stuck into. Our favourites include the pan-fried seabass with queen scallop risotto.
