    Absolutely beautiful little dining experience! The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. The service was very good, would recommend this place to anyone.

    Big portions. Fair price. Lovely restaurant!

    Rather disappointing compared to last year. Menu reduced and service extremely average. An extremely poorly presented and tasting prawn cocktail and a bolognese that was certainly not made with any quality. Limited choice on food and wine. Owner a pleasant chap but this is really not what it was.

    I have eaten here before and never been disappointed. Another excellent meal.

    Usual high standards, after a few poor meals in local pubs it was refreshing to return to good quality food at a reasonable price to celebrate a birthday in style.

    The food appeared freshly prepared and was lovely .
    The service was fine but the place was a little ' grubby' and tired .
    But we enjoyed our meal .

    Good food and service.

    Lovely evening.

    Overall the meal was good with friendly service

    Not their fault but only ones in the restaurant, midweek? Starters were good although on the small side, plus my chicken main was tasty but the sides I ordered were probably warmed up from a previous service. My partner's pasta could have been made at home - basic tomato sauce in penne pasta with a bit of broccoli and steak - sorry could have made it myself.
    I'm sure it might be better at the weekend with more atmosphere.

    Great food and relaxed atmosphere!

    Would go again.

    Always fabulous steaks, a great authentic menu and red house wine is fab. Restaurant was slightly chilly.

    An amazing evening, would deffo go again

    Good friendly service. Nice food.

    A very romantic cosy place to be. Unfortunately my mussels where very very small and half of the shells were empty. The manager kindly deducted it off our bill everyone else (8) really enjoyed there’s. Will go again and have something else

    We were the only customers.....4 of us.
    Had a lovely table next to window which had been opened.
    Food cooked to it was freshly made and full of flavour....and we didn't mind waiting. Nice portion sizes.
    Ambiance .....table cloths and napkins to match. Comfy high backed chairs. Table mats were painted slate roof tiles...each one slightly different. Cutlery nice and clean.

    Booked online and had confirmation by email.

    Food was good, however the service could be friendlier.

    Good food, shame we were the only ones there, although was a Tuesday lunch time. Service was fab and waiter gave us free garlic bread, which was a lovely touch!

    Came with a large group to Cheikho's - great service and tasty food!

    Great food and good service. Will visit again.

    It has been a number of years since we last dined at this restaurant, we certainly will not leave it as long in the future. The choice of food on the menu was extensive as was the service.

    My wife was disappointed that meal she had originally seen on menu online wasn't available. Lighting a little too dim where we sat to be able to read menu easily. However, the meals we chose were OK. Service was very good.

    Beautiful food, am definitely going back!

    Quiet night so not much of an atmosphere but that is the only negative. First visit to the restaurant and all four in our group chose something different and all had an excellent meal. Particularly liked the homemade bread. Good service and good value at Cheikho's!

    Cheikho's is thew best Italian Restaurant I have been to. 5 stars all the way - Food Excellent, Good Value, Service Great, Ambiance - had a good feel to the Restaurant and not over crowded with tables and chairs.

    2nd time we visited. Had a Groupon ticket 2nd visit. Good value for money. Waiter remembered us from our first visit, always nice when that happens.

    Exceptional evening enjoyed by all!

    Very friendly service at Cheikho's and delicious food enjoyed by all our party, from 7 years to 70.

    Good menu choice at Cheikho's, but no ambiance as we were the only two people in. Food reasonably good, but poor interaction from owner/waiter. Bit disappointed as heard good reports previously.

    What an incredible meal and service. There were 8 people in the party and everyone said what a fabulous night and the reaction was I am coming here again. Well done Cheikho's and Thank you!

    Good food and good choice of vegetarian dishes at Cheikho's with very attentive service.

    Really good value for money at Cheikho's, good service, excellent meal, the only fault coming from the tables which are a bit small for two. However it was so good we have booked for Xmas eve!

    Had a very nice time at Cheikho's in Lutterworth. The waiter was very good and I will be back!

    Lovely food, nice setting sat in window with big windows open, sun shinning - lovely.

    Well worth the group on voucher. Food top notch!

    Extensive menu, very helpful staff, nearby car park and well presented food - I will definitely go again. Lunch was excellent, but would try dinner next time.

    Excellent reception on a saturday night, with good food and left alone by staff to enjoy the meal unless we wanted something, a jewel in Lutterworths crown, we will be back again, under £116 for 4 of us including £22 for wine.

    Absolutely lovely again. Thank you.

    Fantastic meal. Great service. Perfect for our birthday celebrations. Thank you.

    A very nice meal with great surroundings. Will definitely be returning.

We say…

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.

If you are looking for an authentic taste of Italy in Leicester look no further than Cheikho’s Italian restaurant in Lutterworth. Offering an intimate atmosphere, authentic food and excellent customer service, think Italian, think Cheikho’s.
