L'Antica Locanda is a unique, culinary Italian experience not to be missed. Situated as it is on The Shambles in the heart of the City of York, this restaurant has been established for over ten years. Its menu offers an unusual variety of Italian dishes, some of them specialities of Puglia and Sardinia. The atmosphere is about as Italian as you can get and the cosy upstairs restaurant area provides a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the busy Shambles, with Italian music and a superb decor transporting the diner straight into 'a piece of Southern Italy'.

Been a few times because it's one of our favourite restaurants in York. Lovely listed building,nice and cozy . The food is excellent and always fresh. Steak is amazing but pasta dishes are great too. Service is very good can't do enough for you! Oh and lovely homemade desserts :) Would definitely recommend it for lunch or dinner.

After a very busy day at an organised event our group opted for this restaurant as our leader had booked it well in advance and each time in York we had done the same...all finishing the day with a meal in good company. Initially didn't get off on the right foot, we trooped in and the owner tried to say... More

We were in York for a weekend and stumbled across this resturant by chance, that managed to seat 6 people fairly late in the day. It was one of the best Italian meals I have had, friendly staff good wine and great company.

I thought I'd try the restaurant after having it recommended by a work colleague. Okay, so it was a Saturday night and I get that it's busy. I also appreciate that when I booked I was told we would be sitting downstairs though I was not quite expecting to be sat in what I would describe as a waiting room/thoroughfare... More
