The wine bar was wonderful. Very Italian. The staff were very efficient and the food was beautiful. I had pate to start and my husband had garlic mussels, he could of eaten alot more! The Chicken and mushroom pasta was to die for. Not pricey either especially for York. Would definately recommend this restaurant

I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and the food is always beautiful! The service is always on point and the staff are always happy to help you. I would recommend this place to anyone as it great. I have visited her with family and friends. It is definitely worth the money for beautiful food and amazing cocktails!

This is my favourite place in York for drinks. My friends and I go on Tuesdays when its £3 cocktails and £9 jugs, we get one jug each and that lasts the night. There is always a great atmosphere and the staff are lovely.

The location is right in the historical centre of York and the atmosphere was great with many tables outside. The menu was fairly extensive - everyone should be able to find something they liked. Nice house red. The waiting staff were very attentive and friendly - menu substitutions not a problem. The food was very reasonably priced for what was... More

Busy Italian restaurant in a nice secluded part of Swinegate. There's an outdoor seating area which is great on a sunny day (or blankets provided when it's not!) The food was good - certainly not the best Italian food I've had in York but for the price paid it was fine. The house wine is a little cheeky, but again... More

Gorgeous hidden gem down a small side street. Loved the al fresco dining in the small courtyard and the music. Fab cocktails and food. Would return again.

Lovely food, great prices and lively atmosphere. Cocktails are lush and there's a happy hour mon-fri 5-7 where the jugs of cocktails are £9 and single cocktails are £3 - absolute bargain. The only criticism I have is that you can't book a table unless you are in a group of 8 or more but you can always wait for... More
