Matthew Watson. Pintura every time. Brilliant gin bar downstairs and the chorizo in cider is fantastic.

Susie Legweak. Ambiente on 
The Calls. Not your typical run of the mill tapas food, and superb selection of sherries - very well priced for such good quality tapas. The setting in a beautiful old industrial building makes it a wonderfully atmospheric place for a romantic meal too!

Wendy Keniwell. We visited Pintura on Trinity Street this week. Lovely food, and nice ambience. Would recommend.

Rick Poppa. Pintura at Trinity, awesome food, great staff and THE best gin bar in Leeds.
