The service is friendly and the menu while not surprising you will offer all that you would expect from an old style Italian restaurant. On the night we went, a saturday over the august bank holiday... More

Arrived late in the evening and sat downstairs and had excellent service. Some choices on the menu weren't available but our waitress made every effort to offer alternatives. The octopus starter was delicious! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had made a prior reservation for a mid week evening meal. Shown to a decent table immediately on arrival. Went downhill from there. Extremely long wait times for orders to be taken, and food to arrive. One side order did not arrive with the main meal and by the time it did arrive, was too late to enjoy properly.... More

We managed to get a table on a walk-in one mid-week evening when it was very busy, so really do suggest you book in advance! We were seated upstairs in a lovely cosy, intimate atmosphere and were very well attended by the staff. The food was gorgeous with a good selection of wines (we went for the Pinot Grigio to... More

Description
L'Antica Locanda is a unique, culinary Italian experience not to be missed.

Situated as it is on The Shambles in the heart of the City of York, this restaurant has been established for over ten years. Its menu offers an unusual variety of Italian dishes, some of them specialities of Puglia and Sardinia.

The atmosphere is about as Italian as you can get and the cosy upstairs restaurant area provides a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the busy Shambles, with Italian music and a superb decor transporting the diner straight into 'a piece of Southern Italy'.
