We say…

Trattoria L'Oliva is one of Beeston's best kept culinary secrets. Located on Beeston High Road amongst the town's other cafes, restaurants and shops, Trattoria L'Oliva is ideal for a mid-week treat, a date night or a catch up with friends.

Housed within a building that is quite unassuming from the outside, inside the Trattoria is modern and fresh with a rustic twist. The mismatched tables and chairs sit alongside olive green wood panelling and traditional candle sticks to create an intimate atmosphere that makes diners feel that they have been transported to the back streets of Rome. By day, L'Oliva is a relaxed cafe for light bites and coffees, and by night becomes the Trattoria, offering authentic, award-winning, home-cooked Italian dishes.

The menu was crafted by Italian owner Marco, and is evidently inspired by a genuine love of food. Starters include the Parma and Bufala Bruschetta, the Gamberi alla Paolo, the succulent king prawns with white wine, garlic and tomato sauce and the Polpette di Tonno e Zucchini, tasty tuna and courgette bites coated in breadcrumbs. Main courses include a variety of delicious pasta dishes, such as the Special of Casarecce pasta with locally-produced bespoke sausages, pumpkin and rosemary. There is vegan and gluten-free pasta available, so no one need feel left out!

There are also tempting gnocchi and risotto dishes available, as well as meat offerings like the mouth-watering Ossobuco alla Milanese (pre-order only), slow-braised shin of veal served with saffron risotto. Finish things off with one of the Trattoria's divine desserts, such as the Homemade Tiramisu or Panna Cotta, or the Dark Chocolate Mousse with white chocolate textures, honeycomb and raspberries. 

If you're after a real bargain, the Early Bird Menu, served Tuesday-Friday 5.30pm-6.30pm offers 2 courses for £11.50 or 3 courses for £14.50.

If you're after an authentic Italian experience that won't break the bank, look no further than Trattoria L'Oliva! Book today to secure your table!
