Leonardo Ristorantino / Swindon
Leonardo Ristorante stands proud among the dense clutch of restaurants packing Swindon’s town centre by refusing to become yet another dime-a-dozen Italian restaurant. Focusing on the regional cuisine of Campania, Leonardo’s special talent is for authentic pasta di Gragnano, the type of pasta made in and around Naples, the original 16th-century pasta. Take it all in with a lunchtime lasagne or the orecchiette with salmon and baby prawns in a lobster broth and Napolitano sauce, and do it all over again with the stunning dinner menu featuring a half dozen or more specific pasta dishes. Of course, this cosy Victoria Road ristorante does a fine line in antipasti, secondi piatti and dolce, making for a well-rounded Italian dining experience!
