Like being on holiday

Fantastic atmosphere and the unique, year round, outside seating area is a real plus. The food is great, the staff friendly and the prices extremely reasonable. Highly recommend.

Have visited many times and always really enjoyed our lunch. Great choice of mains at very reasonable prices and the staff always cheerfull and friendly. Dine outside and the atmosphere is great you feel as though you are in a little village restaurant in Tuscany. Come on foodies you must give it a try

Hidden away in Swinegate, this Italian Bistro is a little gem. Service is delightful, warm and helpful and the food is both excellent and reasonably priced. The Mussels are wonderful and the starter portion exceptionally generous, and the pork belly and chorizo is superb. Sit outside in the sun - or under a blanket (provided) and ample outdoor heating if... More

I was on holiday in York with my girlfriend and were looking for a nice Italian restaurant for dinner and came across this amazing place. The service was pleasant, friendly and quick. The pasta was superb and desert was amazing. The atmosphere was romantic and relaxed. Desert was FREE!!!

Lovely little place to stop for lunch in town. Our meals arrived and one of them was the wrong meal, but this was quickly rectified. Chicken pancetta and mushroom skewers were beautiful.

Went here on Saturday evening and as per usual the meal was absolutely fantastic. The weather was lovely so been able to sit outside is a massive plus. It was very busy which is always a good sign, so there was a slight but by no means long wait but the cocktail bar upstairs accommodates for this. We were called... More

Went here for a long lunch after shopping trip with mum, who I don't get to see a lot, so we wanted a nice meal, wine and a relaxing time to catch up without the kids. It was lovely. Both our main courses were excellent. We weren't hurried at all despite it being a busy Saturday afternoon. Desert was ok,... More
