Visited The Bari today with family and had a terrible meal. We waited half an hour for our food and when it came it was very disappointing. What a pity, it used to be so good.

My partner and I visited yesterday evening, we fancied using a proper Italian vs chains. The welcome wasn't overly warm. The pasta with mussels didn't appear to have any mussels, pizza used what appeared to be chicken thigh meat, which wasn't very nice, had some gristle. Overall, overpriced for what it was and would not visit again.

We ate here on a chip to York expecting a homely small Italian but were disappointed. Decor needs updating. Service was slow and lacked warmth I would expect in an Italian restaurant. Food was not the best - we ordered garlic bread which was stodgy and topped with tomato, my chicken dish was badly cooked. We skipped desert. I wouldn't... More

Popped in for an early evening meal. They made us feel very welcome, did not book and they got us a table straight away, bit near to the cutlery drawer and got distracting at time but someone has to sit there. I had the lasagne, tasty and hot, well presented. Did not try the started but looked nice. Our second... More

we went as an 8 and didn't book so easily got a table. We arrived as soon as it opened at 5 so got the early bird deal of any pizza or pasta for £6.95 or £4.95 for children. We all had pizzas, and garlic bread and olives for starters, and two if not three drinks and it was around... More

We tried here because we wanted an independent Italian restaurant rather than a chain. I can't say it was very inspiring, we both had insalate pomodoro for starter which was sliced tomatoes and red onion. The balsamic vinegar we were given wasn't actually balsamic as it was clear when we poured it on. The salad was missing some mozzarella! I... More

Had a date night with the missus here. Sat on a table in the middle of the restaurant and didn't feel like we were leaning on anyone else's table, nor did anyone barge into us with it being quite small inside! The food was delicious, and was reasonably priced too!

I always make a beeline for this restaurant whenever I'm in York - authentic Italian food at it's best - friendly and knowledgeable staff for which nothing is too much trouble
