“A Little Slice of The Med in York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Have been a few times for a light snack lunch but decided to have a pre-booked evening meal on one of their open evenings.

Great decision.

From service to food, value to variety, all was superb. It was a little quiet but it was February.

I suspect that this will not be a quiet restaurant for long on any lunchtime or evening.

A fantastic addition to our local environment.

“It's all good foot, service and simplicity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We have eaten here twice recently, once for lunch and the other for the home made gelato. Trinacria have it so right, simplicity of decor, excellent service. The savouries, cakes, gelato and the kitchen all on display, the food is delicious too.

“Brilliant food and excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This review is about consistency.My wife and I live locally and we have been eating in Trinacria since they opened last year. Their food is always wonderful and their staff always have a smile to spare, even when they are very busy (as it was the case last Sunday). Their ice creams are truly out of this world, especially the Jaffa Cake one and Giuseppe, the owner, must be the most pleasant restaurant owner in Yorkshire.
It is a great place to go and it has been like that since they started, which give them credit. We are lucky in South Banks to have a place like Trinacria and it is rare out of London.
Leonardo.
