We say…

Ponchinello’s Ristorante has been established since 1985 when authentic Italian cuisine was still a bit of a mystery to many people. During this time Ponchinello’s in Hinckley were serving freshly prepared, authentic Italian dishes and slowly but surely turning all diners into ardent pizza lovers. Fast forward 25 years and the second branch of Ponchinello’s has now opened in the heart of Syston town centre, ensuring that more people than ever are able to enjoy the real taste of Italy.

Located at the ‘Clown Roundabout’ on the corner of Melton Road and Barkby Road, Ponchinello’s is the perfect venue for special occasions thanks to its easily accessible location, beautifully designed interior and delicious menu. As you step through the front door of the restaurant you are immediately welcomed warmly by the friendly but not overbearing staff before being led to your table in the spacious and contemporary dining room.

In some instances the word ‘contemporary’ can conjure images of a cold space but in Ponchinello’s you find exactly the opposite. Using a palette of warm reds, cream and chocolate the restaurant feels homely with a sophisticated edge. The garlands of red flowers that adorn the ceilings and the large murals splashed across the walls add yet more luxury to the comfortable dining space.

As Ponchinello’s believe firmly in only serving authentic Italian cuisine you won’t find any European or British dishes on the menu – just the clean and exciting flavours of classic Italian cuisine. From delicious antipasti to thin and crispy pizzas, creamy rich pasta dishes and succulent steak, chicken and fish mains there’s something to suit all tastes and preferences. There are a good number of vegetarian dishes and children’s portions of most dishes are readily available. For those with specific dietary requirements the kitchen team are more than happy to create something especially for you with prior notice.

If you are looking for a truly authentic taste of Italy then you really will be hard pressed to find anything better than Ponchinello’s. With a deliciously traditional menu packed full of Italian classics and favourites that first forkful of food will see you transported to the rolling hills of Italy – and trust us when we say that you won’t eat Italian anywhere else after a trip to Ponchinello’s Italian restaurant in Syston, Leicester.

    Finally a great Italian restaurant in Syston! Visited with my wife and children and were all catered for very well - the kids portions were altered with no problems whatsoever and the service was friendly and attentive. Will go there again and would absolutely recommend to a friend!
