This is a beautiful quaint restaurant on the shambles, we had a bottle of Champagne as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We shared olives and cold meats to start, followed by Ravioli for myself and fillet steak for my husband. The food was exquisite just truly amazing food cooked by a very happy chef singing in the kitchen. The... More

I have been a regular visitor to this restaurant for the last ten years- through several chefs (all excellent) but always the same owner, so it's about time I make a review of it! Although the decor has changed, the quality has remained consistently great. I travel to Italy several times a year and the authentic dishes on the menu... More

We went to L'antica Locanda for dinner on a Friday night, and the restaurant, though busy, was fantastic! We had very little wait time on our food despite the restaurant being full and the staff were incredible friendly! We had a bottle of the prosecco, the antipasti olives and cured meats, then lobster ravioli and profiteroles. Everything was incredibly well... More

Another restaurant visit resulting from a voucher purchase and another success. It was not exactly busy when we arrived and the approach of the staff was quite casual - but in a friendly way. The food was excellent and the service friendly and timely. One bonus we had not expected was that the main dining area is upstairs. Go for... More

We ate here again on Saturday and I just don't understand the guy from Cheshire as I have never had a bad experience eating here. The staff are always welcoming and also very helpful with the wine list choices. Try the Fillet Gorgonzola with rosti potatoes - nothing else needed as the cream sauce is excellent and the potatoes are... More

Visited during the weekend of the Tour De France. Great location and inviting looking. Shown upstairs to a table near the kitchen at the top of the stairs. Only a few people in and the background music was just that, very ambient. However, before we even got sat down the manager turned the music up to a level that would... More

Great restaurant with really friendly staff. The seafood risotto was sublime. Will definitely eat here again when we visit York.

Avoid - terrible food and even worse service. Poor quality throughout. The standard of food was very poor and the staff rude and aggressive in response to a complaint.
