We have eaten here a few times and the food just gets better and better. We have only had one evening of slow service and that was in 2012! The current staff are delightful and get the pace and timing to perfection. We had the tasting menu and just when you think the next course can't get any better, it does. We took up the offer of help in choosing our wine as the list is enormous and the one we decided on was exactly what we were looking for. Well done, Otto, keep it up!!

Having been really disappointed with the service on a previous visit - this time the service matched the high quality of the food!
Pasta to die for, with a wonderful veal and wild mushroom ragout... cold dry white wine.. yummy plum tart and coffee - a perfect lunch!
(The staff and management must have read Jay Rayner's review in the Observer a couple of months ago!)

Having read some previous reviews and listened to verbal feedback we were not in doubt about the quality of the food but were sceptical about the service. How wrong are these other reviews? The food was simply stunning. The service was absolutely impeccable. Friendly, courteous, pitched at the right level but most importantly expert! Brilliant guidance from our waiter on food choices (especially the cheese selection from the biggest cheese trolley outside of Italy!) and the sommelier took time to explain our wine selection and tasting. If you are expecting fast Italian chain restaurant food with non Italian staff serving you...forget it, you are in the wrong place. Le Langhe is without doubt the best Italian or indeed European food in York. Thanks folks for a wonderful evening.

Booked the table for 12:00, there were lots of table free but they made us wait to clear and reset the only table being used. We asked for a corner table but we were told that we could not have it because it was for three people, later given to a couple. We ordered two meats and cheese selection and a bottle of Nebbiolo. Food was served fairly quickly and so was the wine. The place was not that busy but once offered the wine no one came to pour it. You would expect more for what they charge for the wine! We did not like the two cheeses on the plate and when we flagged to the waiter we were told that that was the cheeses of the day and that they could not change it. No choice ever given or neither we were informed. The waiter was arrogant and patronising and the service awful. At the end of the service we we were usher away to the pdq machine so that they could reuse the table. A lunch for two (two cold meat platters and a bottle of red wine) for just under £40. What we remember? Poor service, average food and arrogant and patronised waiter. Never to go back again. Would not recommend it!
