Went last night for a rare night out with my husband. The food was fantastic, the calamari starter my particular favourite! I have only been for the lunch special before which is a total bargain but for the quality of food last night I found it very reasonable. The service and atmosphere very friendly and felt like we were on... More

Better late than never. Went to Il Paradiso couple weeks ago now. I've been many times. I love the real Italian home cooked food and buzzing atmosphere. My last visit was the best ever. The mussels in a chilli saffron sauce are amazing. The home made pasta, broccoli and sausage in a broth is incredibly tasty. I spend a lot... More

We have been for a couple of times after hearing glowing reports from colleagues and agree with them. Both times we have had the £8.50 special of a pizza/pasta and a drink (the white wine is lovely and dry!) and both times we have been very impressed. Brilliant!

This was our first time at II Paradiso del Cibo, staff were great(Italian), the food was amazing. The place is small inside but this all helps with the atmosphere. The specials board was amazing to read but even better once eaten. Thanks to everybody that works there, we had a great night out. Definitely be returning when we are next... More

After a very strong recommendation we were quite disappointed overall. Good points for us were the obviously genuine Italian staff, the rustic feel and the coziness. Downsides were a limited menu selection, especially pasta (unless you paid up to £20 for a special), and the fact that it is cash only. Admittedly this didn't really inconvenience us, and I'm all...

My husband and I had reservations here while visiting York this past weekend. The whole experience was superb. I ordered the Amatriciana and my husband ordered one of the specials - a pasta dish with sausage. Both were outstanding. We also ordered the house red (which was a larger bottle than expected!), bruschetta, and the citrus and traditional tiramisus. Everything... More

If you have been lucky enough to visit Italy, you will know how even the smallest of restaurants take pride in the food they produce, the fresh ingredients they use, and the warm, friendly atmosphere of their establishments. Entering this restaurant on Fossgate, is like stepping into Italy. From the moment you walk in, you will be met with a... More

I came to ll paradiso with my boyfriend for tea and it was fantastic. I had lasagne and my boyfriend had pork, which he said was the best meal he had ever had! The venue is very cosy and all the staff are so friendly. Prices are cheap and food comes very quickly. Amazing quality, delicious food. Would return again,... More
