I could easily write a book for this restaurant...Me and my wife have been going there for about 6 years and we can definitely confirm that it is in the top 3 restaurants we have been all over the world!!! Many of the ingredients come from Italy, and they are very carefully selected. The recipes(especially the ones on the specials... More

Just back from a reunion of friends (mostly lawyers) where we had a good meal chosen by the proprietor. It took a little of the pleasure away when a fixed price meal had a price for dessert added without advance notice, and there was some dispute as to how many bottles of wine we had. Moral: check what is include... More

If you are OK with the noise and general disorder (i.e., have Italian connections or go to Italy often), and enjoy good Italian food, this is the place to be. Food is very similar to what we had very recently in Sardinia, but a little bit modified for local palate (definitely more spicy than the fare in Sardinia itself). Great... More

This was one of my favourite restaurants in York, I visited here frequently and highly recommended it. However I am now changing my opinion of this. I called last night to book a table for eight people in December and was rudely informed they were too busy to deal with my booking request and hung up on. Food is amazing... More

This restaurant had been highly recommended to us by a friend. So we decided to give it a try. We went on Saturday evening (11th October). Our table was booked for 9pm, this is a VERY small restaurant. When we arrived the table was not ready, so,we were taken to a table outside (patio heaters kept us very warm). We... More

A little bit of Italy in York. This place is buzzy, hot and loud; just like Italy! Yummy homemade food and friendly staff. A great find. Book to avoid disappointment and a chain restaurant!!

A real gem in the heart of York, Il Paradiso del Cibu serves beautiful regional Italian dishes with some great flavours. Run by Paolo - a friendly Italian guy with a big personality - and his staff, for a moment you might believe you aren't in York at all but in a little corner of Italy. Great service and a... More

We heard good reviews about this restaurant, so thought we would try it for lunch on a Saturday. As it was a weekend, we decided to book a table, so contacted them on the phone. They didn't open until 12, and as a result, all I got was an answerphone message telling me they opened at 12. I called at... More

Let me start by apologizing for your terrible telephone encounter, no one should ever experience such abrupt manners. My brother Roberto answer the phone and i can tell you it was never his intention to put the phone down on you but unfortunately his English isn't that good so I think he just panicked, again our sincere apologies.
