“A quality eating experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Really enjoyed our evening meal here, would describe it as a quality eating experience, friendly, efficient and good value. The ambiance was good, busy and lively, good service and simple but clean and pleasant decor. Looking forward to another visit on our next time in York.

“Superb food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant was full, which is always a good sign - especially for a Monday. We began with breads and oil/balsamic, plus a dish of lovely olives. Our only disappointment was that there wasn't enough oil/balsamic in the tiny dish it was served in so we had to leave uneaten bread. But we soon forgot that when the main courses arrived. My son had a huge seafood pasta dish which he said was delicious. His girlfriend was also happy with her pasta meal (and she's a very fussy eater!). My Yorkshire steak with truffle sauce was absolutely perfect and one of the best I've had in the UK.
The service was prompt and friendly. The price was ok - £77 for our bread/olives, three main meals, beers and a bottle of house red. Would definitely go again.

“Fantastic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Four of us were on a day trip in York and I remembered this place having bought food from the deli there in the past and it was very nice, I remembered they had a restaurant upstairs, I must say I had the best ravioli there I have ever had, can't remember what it was called but it had mushroom and truffle and onions inside with a beautiful mushroom sauce, it was off the specials list, all of us loved the food and the wine, will definitely be back soon.

Totally recommend this place if you like great tasty food this is the place to go.

Garry from Oldham.

“Perfect Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Went here for my 30th birthday. Was a very good find and would probably say its up there with the best Italian food I've ever had!
Really cute place, romantic but a good atmosphere too. Fantastic menu, really gorgeous food and good service.
Will definitely be going here again when next in York

“Very authentic.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We took the recommendation from TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. We started with 'Olive alla mediterranea' followed by 'Misto di pesce' and 'Petto di pollo al pepe nero' and for pudding 'Tiramisu' and 'Ice cream' finishing with 'Coffee'. The welcome,service and food were excellent and the house red, a 'Merlot', was very good value for money. A good night out.
