This iconic Leeds restaurant has had a £2 million refurbishment – and it looks absolutely stunning

San Carlo Flying Pizza is back with a brand new look, and you’re going to want to check it out.

If you’re local to the Leeds area, there’s no doubt that you will have visited the iconic San Carlo Flying Pizza restaurant in Roundhay.

The eatery has been part of Leeds’ heritage since first opening its doors all the way back in 1974, and it re-opened its doors just a few weeks ago following a sparkling refurbishment.

The refit, which has been designed in-house and is custom to San Carlo Flying Pizza, draws inspiration from the group’s successful Alderley Edge establishment, whilst paying homage to the original features of the well-known and loved San Carlo Flying Pizza.

Beautiful terrazzo floors inspired by traditional Italian villas in Lake Como, retro signage, plush leather seating and of course framed photos lining the spiral staircase heralding back to times gone by.

Bespoke artwork celebrating local artists is on display as well as a brand new shellfish instalment which plays homage to San Carlo Flying Pizza’s longstanding display.

Boasting 130 covers, diners can expect a wonderful atmosphere whether dining during the day or in the evening.

And the new summer menu does not disappoint either, from the creamy Burrata e Pomodoro to the beautifully light lemon sole with clams and asparagus, there’s a dish for everyone to enjoy whilst taking in the wonderful atmosphere.

Coupled with the very best Italian hospitality, diners can expect a truly authentic experience at the new San Carlo Flying Pizza.

The perfect spot for a leisurely lunch, evening meal with friends or a place to celebrate with family.

Marcello Distefano, CEO at San Carlo, commented: “San Carlo Flying Pizza is such an iconic restaurant within the local community, it was only right we give it the revamp it deserved.

“We have such a fiercely loyal customer base within the local area and beyond, so the aim of our refurb is to ensure we maintain our status as Leeds’ most renowned Italian restaurant as we cater to locals and those who travel from afar to dine with us. 

“We hope our guests have a true authentic Italian dining experience with us – conveyed not only through our carefully crafted food and drink, but through the décor and ambience too.”
