First I'l start off with we had a great time we were a group of 8 ( our bill was 146 quid with 3 bottles of wine and pudding so God knows what that other party ordered to come to 500 quid !) But there are things to note if you are choosing an Italian . Book first ! It's... More

After hearing so many good reviews, I had to try it for myself!! This is by far the best Italian restaurant I have ever dined in (I have dined in many with Italian food being my favourite cuisine). Everybody needs to try this place for themselves, the food is an experience for your tastebuds. My boyfriend and I are already... More

Having eaten in many places in York, we had missed Il Paradiso, and this was clearly a big mistake. This is great little restaurant - lots of hustle and bustle, and a great atmosphere, catering for all ages. The staff are warm, outgoing and make everyone feel very welcome. The food was outstanding and there was a very broad choice... More

Friendly staff, very relaxed atmosphere, tasty food and decent house red at very reasonable prices - their early bird deal is excellent value for money. It is cramped but somehow that added to the fun - people were actually queuing to get in (but we weren't rushed at all). There were quite a few Italians in (apart from the staff!)... More

Excellent Pizza's at incredibly affordable prices, had the £8.25 Pizza and Glass of something deal, the Pizza was delicious (apparently they use traditional methods of cooking and certainly its a cut above your ususal italian chain offerings) and the house red was very drinkable. Get the bruschetta as a starter, it is delicious. Service was lovely and the location good,... More

I have been here a couple of times now and am yet to be disappointed. The food is outstanding (especially for the cheap prices) and is always served with friendly customer service. The atmosphere is nice - only problem is that it is slightly cramped and there is not that much room on the tables. However, this is not something... More
