Casa Mia Milleneum, Milleneum Square, Leeds LS1

This family run Italian restaurant is in a prime position on the edge of Milleneum Square in Leeds city centre and the food isn't bad either!

We went early on a Saturday lunchtime and we had pre-booked. Probably just as well as the place was quite busy when we left. We were met and shown to our table by a charming and pleasant M'aitre D. The eating area downstairs is light and airy and all the tables on the ground floor have a good view out of the wall of windows down one side.

Having imbibed some alcoholic refreshment at the nearby and highly recommended Victoria Family and Commercial Hotel (The Vic pub) we did not want more and so just requested tap water to drink which was no problem and came served with ice and lemon.

The food was excellent beginning with a plate of mixed Antipasto which we shared. There was a selection of cold meats and pickled and chargrilled vegetables enveloped in just enough olive oil dressing.We asked for a side of bread and butter to accompany the dish and we were not charged for this even though it was not provided as standard.The waiter said We are quite happy to cut it into many small useful pieces.

The main event was sublime. My Traditional Meatballs were moist and packed with flavour and the tomato sauce had a great depth of tomatoey taste. The accompanying plain pasta was the perfect foil for this. My companion chose lasagne with asparagus, seared, fresh salmon and a creamy dill sauce which was delicious if a little runny in texture.
With no room for desert we left replete and impressed with the food and service. For an establishment in the very heart of town the prices are surprisingly affordable too. However upon my return I must ask why there was a food display case absolutely full of fresh, red apples!
