Lovely, authentic Italian food in an atmospheric cellar surrounding.

Advanced booking was required and the place was heaving, even on a weekday night. Seemed to be a lot of locals using the place, which is never a bad sign

The vegetarian options were non-existent so we punted for the vegetariana pizza assuming that with that name it should be. However based on the fact we all had upset stomachs the next day, they either weren't hygienic or there were animal products used. The waiters continuously rushed us so many people ate fast causing indigestion. Two waitresses had an argument at the table before one slammed down the food she was carrying and stormed off. The roulade contained what I assume was creme patisserie but tasted like when the smell that lingers after you vomit through the nose. The £15 house red tasted like £3 plonk from Asda. And for this service they had the audacity to charge us extra. Avoid like the plague.

We rolled into York with 90 minutes to spare before a meeting. Having eaten in pubs and cafes for the past week, we craved some proper, hot food. We found it, headed in, and had a great experience. First off, understand that this is a nice restaurant and, under the circumstances, we might have been considered 'difficult' patrons. We were very polite, of course, but we had a large bag with us, we were not 'dressed for dinner', and we were in somewhat of a hurry... however the folks at Delrio had no problem with us and did a great job.

Bottom line: We got excellent food, quickly, and without so much as a trace of the bad attitude that you might typically expect under such circumstances.
