Actor Robert De Niro changed Hollywood to Halifax when he enjoyed an Italian in the West Yorkshire heritage town.
Steaua, best known for movies like Taxi Driver and Goodfellas, eats Ricci instead of "talking to me"? moment in Leeds.
De Niro later appeared at the Army Museum in the city, where he was interviewed about his life and career.
Restaurant owner Olivia Ricci said he could not feel too scary, unwilling to keep De Niro waiting.
Mrs. Ricci managed to keep the secret – even from the staff – until the star arrived and kept the job going smoothly.
The restaurant was closed to the public during the dinner on Monday.
Ms. Ricci said she and husband Michael "were prayed just five or six weeks ago" to fix the event.
"When we were close and asked to put a menu together, we put it on the team and liked the sound," she said.
"I did not even tell the staff, I just said we had a private dinner for a special person. He was very humble and said he loved his food, loved his coffee."
Several stories around Yorkshire
The menu included Italian clothing, craft cheeses and bruschetta to get started.
Perhaps not surprising for Raging Bull's star, De Niro followed with dry beef fillets and short ribs rather than hunting if it was more of a night for The Deer Hunter.
Ms. Ricci added, "The dessert was a trio of New York cheesecake, Amalfi tiramisu and tiramisu."
It is not clear whether De Niro's party was landed with an "angry" bill at the end.
The 75-year-old actor is considered by many to be one of the greatest actors of all time and has won, among other things, two Academy Awards and a Golden Globe.
Some of his most popular films are Awakenings, Cape Fear and Casino.
He is himself a restaurateur with a host of hotels and restaurants all over the world.
It's the second Yorkshire visit to a Hollywood star this month, after ex-wrestler Dwayne Johnson – aka The Rock – worked last week at a Doncaster gym.
