When it comes to independent restaurants in Leicester we’re spoilt for choice. One that is a firm favourite amongst a lot of people is the long standing Casa Romana, behind the little green door on Albion Street.

The cosy Italian restaurant is one of the longest running in Leicester city centre and is close to the heart of many people.

One of those is Sarah Challis who got in touch to tell us about her favourite dish.

My favourite dish is either the Tagliatelle lamb ragout or the Halibut (which comes fresh from Leicester market!) I love to go there because its such a welcoming, homely place, plus it feels like a secret spot since they don’t have a sign. And of course, their traditional Italian food is always delicious!

Casa Romana is based on Albion Street in the city centre. Find out more via their website.
