We had the antipasta for two and the smoked salmon. Mains were Risotta funghi, one of us had steak with gorgonzola and the rest... More

A couple of windows and a small door. Why go in there? The menu looked appetizing and the prices reasonable considering its location. A Saturday night, we hopefully would be lucky. Upstairs was full, but they put two tables together by the window, and with the door open, it was a good choice. Italian restaurants are to my mind, always... More

Having researched a little we came across this restaurant which had some promising reviews. What I particularly liked was how it was described as... More

Went here with friends, we all had the Bruschetta all’Antica to start with, it was really tasty! I had Filetto al Gorgonzola One of my friends had a pasta dish and one of them had, Salmone alla Leccese all the food was amazing and the service was too. We will definitely be back for more of the same soon!

Have walked by this place many times and thought it was some kind of tourist trap given it's location on The Shambles. The lure of a Living Social voucher temped us to visit and have to say it's a lovely little restaurant. On a warm day would highly recommend a seat by the window, from the first floor you can...

L'Antica Locanda in the Shambles of York was masterful. I had a starter of Cozze A Scatella, a most delicious bowl of mussels cooked in garlic, chilli and tomato sauce with cherry tomatoes. I then had a Misto Mare All'Antica which was an outstanding southern Italian dish of mixed seafood and fish that was stewed in a rich tomato sauce... More

Very welcoming restaurant. We went on recommendation and was extremely happy. My husband been Italian himself is very hard to please eating Italian food here in England.and unfortunately the big chains have managed to convince many of us that the food they serve is authentic. it's not until you find a gem like this restaurant can you understand the difference....

Was quickly seated but had to ask for the specials menu and then we were treated like second class people. They would not let us have ice with our water which was a warm bottle, we unlike everyone else we're not provided with complementary bread/coffee at the end. My daughter ordered mussels but after ordering and waiting we were informed... More
