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 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

The pizza's are thin, crispy, full of flavour and I'd say better than ones I've had in Italy itself! As for the staff...they are friendly, chatty, extremely attentive and just make the whole experience worth it. The... More

Have been several times since moving to York last year and its just fab. the food is always fresh and good quality. There is a great atmosphere and the staff are always friendly. Its always busy so pick your time or book ahead. but whether you choose pizza or one of their fab specials, you'll want to go back.
