Visited here after a recommendation from an acquaintance. Took some finding as we are not from York but when we arrived on a rather dull and rainy Tuesday afternoon it was already heaving. However, the waiter found us a space and my husband had a pasta dish which was lovely, unfortunately, due to... read more

I cannot comment on the food, sadly, which is always amazing. We didn't have any as when I arrived with my son who was flying off to China for a year the next day, we were told quite rudely that they would not be opening for another hour! This was at 12 midday! We were not offered a table outside... More

A fun place, good Sicilian food and wine (this is NOT Italian, they get upset if you call them that). Dont forget to ask for a complimentary Limoncello at the end of your meal. Have a laugh and joke with the staff.

We were in York a couple of weeks ago and my daughter had booked a table on a Friday night, she had had lunch there a couple of times when she was a student. Myself and 2 daughters were put on a small table with my back facing the busy floorplace where waitors kept banging into me. I moved my... More

Excellent Italian food - possibly the best I've had. Shame then, that they didn't advise us when booking or arriving that it was cash only (I would have happily paid a surcharge for the card but I guess they have their own reasons for declining!). There is a sign on the door but it was open and I don't make... More

Visited on a Saturday evening, party of 7 inc children. Once you get over the initial shock that they don't take cards, this really is a little gem of a place. A slightly rustic feel, but the atmosphere of organised chaos was great. Service attentive without being overbearing, and the food terrific. I would advise booking as it is not... More

Stumbled across this place from recommendations from TripAdvisor. We ate the cannelloni and veg pizza. Great food and great service. Recommended

We had the cured meats starter which was really yummy with 3 different meats (although I will admit that I wasn't crazy about the olives that accompanies the dish - I've had better). We then had the spaghetti bolognese which was classic tasting and very nice, and the pasta Amatricino (did I spell that right? Probably not), with a tomato... More

We walked in to this charming Italian restaurant without a reservation and was immediately welcomed with open arms. The Staff at Il Paradiso Del Cibo were absolutely amazing. The food blew us all away. It was by far the best Italian food we as a family has ever had. We cannot thank all the staff enough for such a memorable... More
