We went last night as a party of 10 for our Son, who is at University of York for his 21st. Not too busy, but busy enough for a nice atmosphere. We were looked after well by the staff, and everyone enjoyed their meals - we had a good cross section of the menu between us. We would recommend and... More

Visited here on Saturday 20th September with my Wife and two friends, the restaurant is amazing. fantastically set out. The food is superb- value for money and sizeable portions. Well stocked wine list My only "criticism" is the pianist. Too much and too ostentatious really. Otherwise an all round superb dining experience and I will be back.

We went in relatively late at 20:30h, as earlier bookings were not available. Very good service from the waitress. Food order was taken and arrived as ordered. Wine was the chianti classico, which was typical of the area, but nothing too special. Cannot comment on the garden views as it was dark. The major forte in a restaurant should be... More

It's definitely subjective isn't it! Visited on Sunday 14th September as a little treat to ourselves - everything was lovely - food was good, very tasty and the hot food was hot and the staff were attentive and the bill was not too big! What's not to like. Would happily call in again,.

As a group of six golfers we visited La Vecchia Scuola last Saturday evening. We found it by chance and we were certainly in luck! We sat at a table in the main building right by the cocktail bar and an extra bonus for me was being able to watch the barman mixing and pouring (three at a time!) the... More

Are annual visit to this restaurant does not disappoint, and we always look forward to our visits, the food is always excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful, it's a lovely setting for dinner, as in the conservatory you can see the Minster and some lovely kept gardens. Excellent value and good size meals that wouldn't leave you... More
