Granary Wharf, Leeds
The secret of Granary Wharf’s snug collection of bars and eateries is long since out but a trip to the Leeds Liverpool canal side remains a worthy one, as does a trip this delightful little restaurant/bar. Livin’ Italy brings a taste and atmosphere of its own to the popular spot at the foot of Leeds train station’s revamped southern entrance. There is no mistake of the origins here, with a typically Italian style red scooter displayed prominently over the doorway of the bar-come-kitchen’s glass frontage. Open all day, this is a bar that serves food round the clock in its neat restaurant, from dolce Italian and Italo-English breakfasts, to deli plates of pasta, Italian meats and cheese to burgers, pizza and antipasti boards, and evening menu classics such as lasagna and tagliatelle al pesto.
