Visited again last week. The staff are helpful, friendly and a bit Basil Fawlty in a good way. Food excellent across the menu; have been here as a couple, a family and a group of friends. If you want an Italian meal in York go here, no ifs, no buts. Salute!

My sister found this place completely by accident a little while ago - it's a tiny place, but well worth seeking out in a city full of the usual boring (and awful) big food chains. In a world of corporate branding and portion control, this place is a breath of fresh air. Can thoroughly recommend the pizza - which was... More

We came across this little gem by chance but it will be on our must visit list the next time we visit York. My cannelloni was delicious, my hard to please daughter had the carbonara. Even though I was full, I had to try it - worth the I've eaten too much feeling afterwards. I want the recipe. The chocolate... More

We loved this restaurant. It may be a bit cramped but the Pizza's were great, nice thin crust like you get in Italy and the house wine was good too. We will be back to try something from the specials board.

I first discovered Il Paradiso when I was at university in York and since then we always return whenever we're in York. The food is so amazing and reasonably priced and we love the atmosphere in there to.

I love this place so much! It's authentic, friendly, always packed and the food is amazing! My boyfriend and I went there at the weekend, we had a bottle of house red, the calamari starter which was to die for and Antipasto board packed full of delicious fresh meats, cheese and pickles. The main course's were also divine. I have... More

My partner and I have visited this little Italian on a couple of occasions. The lunch set price menu is excellent value and the pizza is authentic thin and crispy. I've chosen the pasta on both our visits and it is perfectly seasoned, well cooked, and delicious. The Valentines day menu (this is late I realise!) was completely delicious and... More

Tucked away on an inconspicuous street in York, you might miss this little gem. It's small, intimate, welcoming and the food is wonderful. There is NO mistaking the Italian, family background - the setting, the voluble chatter, the flavours of the food. It was served quickly, with panache and I could not clear my bowl. Yum yum. And at lunch... More
