Have been several times mostly on Friday night restaurant is small and cosy never had a reservation but have always been seated usually after a short wait. The service is excellent and the food is very authentic. Great experience.

House hunting in York has turned out to be discovering new places to eat too. While this restaurant has been around for quite a while, it was our first visit to celebrate finalising a lovely apartment to rent near the city walls. The place was reasonably busy for a Tuesday afternoon. It is a bit tiny and the tables are... More

Let me start with three bits of advice before you visit this wonderful Sardinian restaurant but visit it, you must if you ever find yourself in York. Don’t do what we did and just turn up; book first. It is very popular and we were lucky. Take cash with you because they don’t take cards. Make sure you have an... More

Well, you get good food but then once and awhile you find a restaurant that has amazing food, atmosphere and genuine care for customers. The attention to detail is something you can't put into words, yet it just makes it by far better than all those chains restaurants you find. It's a place that will always continue to shine and...

We were visiting our son and his fiancee in York & were browsing new places to eat. This restaurant was listed as being nearby so we thought we would give it a try. We didn't book but i would recommend you do so as we got the last table and it was only a Tuesday night! The staff were really... More

Great restaurant, busy and bustling but great atmosphere and the food was really good. Good tange of standard Italian dishes but the specials board was excellent, we ate starters and mains from the specials board and they were all delicious. House wine came in a 1litre bottle which was a plesant suprise!

A fantastic atmosphere with superb food, thoroughly enjoyed! Loved the feel of the place, staff were very friendly. A lot of reviews say about how crammed the place is but this simply adds to the whole feel of the restaurant. I would definitely visit again! Prices are very reasonable so don't be put off by many reviews that say how... More

I always visit Il Paradiso when I go to York (around 6 times) but the last time I went (this past weekend) was really disappointing. I really like the busy / authentic Italian vibe but this time I felt that the portion was tiny and it wasn't value for money at all. I has Bolognese and the portion was honestly... More

This is my absolute favourite restaurant in York. Visited after a chilled days shopping in York. The perfect end to the day. Great staff, great service and fantastic food.
