After trying to book by phone several times and each time being told 'We are very busy, phone back after 6pm', phoned back another day just after 6pm to be told the same, so booked elsewhere for the dates we wanted. On August Bank Holiday Monday (25/08/14), we decided to go to York for the day and I suggested to... More

My friend and I had walked past this restaurant a few times and it had always smelt lovely and been fairly busy, so we thought we'd give it a try. We arrived for lunch, it is only a small restaurant so it's a little cramped inside but it wasn't a problem. There was no real lunch menu so we had... More

Recommend by a friend so took my wife there for our anniversary. Everything including the service, atmosphere, quality of food and price was top notch. Really does put the Italian chains to shame in my opinion. Definitely be returning.

Authentic Italian food, basic restaurant with a great atmosphere. Great staff I can not recommend enough! If you are looking for fine dining then this is not the place BUT if you are looking for great food, great people and a really enjoyable night - this place is excellent!

First time at the restaurant and certainly not the last. Great menu and not too cluttered. The place was immersed in the Italian tongue and I felt like a visitor which was great. Go there and enjoy.

Good authentic food at a reasonable price on a Sunday evening-it was a very good experience. The red mullet starter was outstanding and the pizza bases spot on with plentiful fresh toppings. Staff worked well together and created a very italian buzz and atmosphere. Mushroom rissotto was good but lacked depth in flavour and tables are very tight. Will happily... More

We visited a few months ago for the first time for lunch and were happily surprised. We have lived in Italy for around 4 years and haven't been able to find any place that so closely replicates the taste of Southern Italy; even the espresso is fantastic. It's crowded, and loud and most of the menu is on the wall,... More

On a 3 day trip to York, my wife and I felt like Italian and found a little place about a 20 minute walk from our B&B. The owner informed us that they typically book 4 weeks out, but that they had a few outdoor spots near the kitchen staff. It was nice out, so we agreed. This owner, Paolo,... More
