This was our first visit to this restaurant, but we had seen the (mostly) great reviews on Tripadvisor & looked at their excellent menu, beforehand - so decided to book in advance. All the staff were very friendly, attentive & welcoming. There was a great...choice of food. I opted for the "Bruschetta al Pomodoro Pesto e Mozzarella". Beautifully seasoned with herbs & simply the best I've ever tasted. Huge portion, enough for two! I then had the "Fillet Mozzarella" (fillet steak) - superbly cooked meat & full of flavour & again very good portion. My girlfriend had the "Salmone con Gamberetti" which she also said was delicious. For dessert, I had the Tiramasu & my girlfriend chose the lemon cheesecake. Both excellent! We finished the meal off with a coffee & expresso. One of the best meals we have ever had in an Italian restaurant, at an extremely reasonable price. We shall not want to wait for another birthday before returning again!More

Don’t believe the homepage!! Not vegan friendly one bit!! We are a group of around 12 people, looking for somewhere to eat and noticed “vegan options” quoted on this restaurant’s Trip Advisor page. However, when we enquired, the response was “no. sorry for any inconvenience”....Really, pulling together a fresh meat free ragu, over pasta should not be difficult for an Italian restaurant. Also, a veggie pizza would have sufficed, minus the cheese of course, but NOTHING was offered in way of alternatives. Poor customer service and just a downright lie, described on your homepage as vegan friendly.More

Fantastic food! Fillet Steaks for mains were one of the best we've ever had, beautiful sauces. Portion sizes were huge. Would definitely recommend.

We had a lovely family meal tonight. Delicious food, generous portions, friendly waitress and good service. When they realised we hadn't got a cake for Grandma's birthday they provided a gorgeous portion of tiramasu complete with candles! A lovely thought and much appreciated - thank...you. The bill was a pleasant surprise too. All in all a fantastic meal and excellent value for money too.More

Food was delicious, portion were MASSIVE! Lovely family run restaurant. We had a starter to share, ordered pizza, pasta and a couple of sides to share. Could have been more choice for desserts, if I'm going to nitpick, but other than that everything else was...just fab.More

Went her for my wife's birthday and this will be my go to Italian restaurant. The food was amazing and was prepared lovingly. I have worked in Italy and been to some of the best family run restaurants and I can say that this restaurant...reminded me of those days. It has that family-owned, home cooking feel to it and the food was excellent (rack of lamb is the best I have ever tasted). They actually have the hard to find Sardinian Red on the wine list and it was wonderful. Desserts are handmade by the waitress and was also amazing. I've never tasted such a lightly whipped cheesecake before - melts in the mouth! The service was also amazing and I can't wait to go back. I will be recommending Altro Mondo to anyone who wants to have an authentic Italian meal. I was expecting the bill to be a lot more expensive than it was and that adds to the fact that I will be eating here regularly.More

We thought we would try having a meal here as we couldn’t get in at our usual favourite Italian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was really tasty, portions were very generous and the prices were also very reasonable. The service was very pleasant...and efficient. We will be returning!More

Great place to go to. very friendly staff that provide amazing service. Great food with a,very good portion size that is reasonably priced yet not compromised on quality. Service is relatively quick yet you do not feel pushed to empty the tables. Only recommendations would...be to add V near the vegetarian items on the menu. Overall very good experience and highly recommended. Definitely become one of our favorite places for Italian in Leicester.More
