Cheikho’s Italian restaurant is situated on Church Street in the beautiful market town of Lutterworth, Leicester. Regarded as the best Italian restaurant for miles around, diners have been known to travel from Rugby to join the local community in enjoying the reasonably priced, authentic Italian food on offer in the restaurant.
Serving up home-cooked Italian cuisine for over twenty years, Cheikho’s also has a branch in Oadby that receives similar praise for its attention to detail, customer service and of course, its food. Cheikho’s Lutterworth offers a more rustic dining experience than its sister branch with white textured walls, terracotta tiled floor, stunning ceiling beams and intricately carved wooden chairs. Vintage-effect chandelier, dried flowers and blackboards further add to the charm of the venue. It is a cosy and intimate venue that is suitable for both large group bookings, tables can be arranged to seat up to 20 at a time, and, of course, couples looking for a romantic candlelight dinner.
From pizza to pasta and steaks to fresh fish, all dishes at Cheikho’s are prepared with passion and skill. You can expect classic combinations such as chicken cacciatora stuffed with blue cheese and wild mushrooms, wrapped in smoked bacon, pan-fried and then baked and served in a mushroom sauce; and rigatoni Carbonara cooked in a creamy egg sauce with smoked bacon. The signature dish, Yasmine Arabella, was created by Cheikho for his daughter and sees a lean fillet of beef sliced open and filled with mozzarella and king prawns before being wrapped in Parma ham laced with French mustard and flambéed with Courvoisier, sautéed with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and onions and finished with an exclusive Chateau Talbot wine and crème fraiche sauce. A comprehensive, hand-picked wine list is the perfect accompaniment to any of the stunning dishes on the menu and the staff are always on hand to give their recommendations and advice to ensure that your wines match the flavours of each dish.
