“Something a bit different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

Nice staff and interesting menu which is so important considering the plethora of Italian eateries in York. Also liked the fact that you can have something light or a fuller meal. Also uses local suppliers.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

I would really recommend this cafe - its fresh & stylish image, FANTASTICALLY tasty food and friendly, attentive staff really make this place. The menu is varied and interesting too - wholesome and healthy, or indulgent if you'd prefer (you must try the delicious home-made ice-creams) Five star!

“It's my second office!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I live just around the corner from Trinacria and often take my laptop there for the afternoon when I'm bored of my office walls. Great service, authentic Italian food, excellent value and wonderful home-made icecream!

“certified by an Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

I had my graduation dinner here with my family and friends, who flew from Italy to come and visit me. Food was super extra delicious, original Italian taste. Our waiter was super nice with us, and everyone was so relaxed and ready to help. The interior should be redesigned, but you eat with the mouth, not with the eyes!
Pop in for lunch as well, because you absolutely have to try "arancini" and transform you lunch break in an explosion of taste.
The only negative thing was the cooking time of the pasta (we forgot to mention we were Italians, so we would have liked the pasta "al dente"), but most importantly they promised us a tiramisù as a dessert, and when they serve it, it was a chocolate mousse. Anyway, the dinner went well!

Ristorante siciliano davvero molto buono, con il personale sempre gentile e con il sorriso. Se siete italiani, ricordate di chiedere la cottura della pasta al dente, e verificate che il tiramisù sia davvero tiramisù perché hanno servito una mousse al cioccolato e ce l'avevano presentato come tiramisù. Nonostante questo disguido, è stata davvero una bella cena di laurea con i miei amici e la mia famiglia venuti dall'Italia per l'occasione.
Vi obbligo a passare a pranzo e gustare i deliziosi arancini!
