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'.

Visited L'antica Locanda for the second time just before Xmas with my partner, my mother and my brother who is a regular visitor. Service was impeccable and we were made to feel very welcome. 3 of us opted for the Fillet steak cooked perfectly medium rare as requested. One of the party had Chicken in a lovely creamy sauce. Fresh vegetables and roast potatoes were brought out for us to share. We enjoyed one of the special artisan beers Mastri Birrai Umbri, the selezione 42. To accompany the steak we enjoyed a fantastic bottle of Villa Santera primitivo wine that we selected from the vast wine selection. Will definitely visit again, make sure you book as the restaurant is very popular with locals who enjoy good food, amazing wines in a relaxed rustic environment!

We booked a table @ L'antica,purely on the strength of the tripadvisor reviews;we certainly were not disappointed !!
The food is, indeed,a real taste of Italy.Fresh,beautiful aromas waft up from the plate to whet the appetite. Flavours,so indescribably good,will make you roll your eye's in delight !!!
The ambience,the service,the feeling of being made welcome,is the best I think I've ever experienced.
If you love Italien food,very reasonably priced,look no further than L'antica Locanda. We will be returning on our next trip to York.

Third visit to this amazing restaurant and this time for new years. The food wine and ambience was still outstanding. True taste of Italian cuisine very tasteful indeed. Gianni the owner is a legend and never seems to fail. All staff bend over backwards to help and please . A little rustic full of charm and character situated in the shambles a must place to dine. GIANNI YOU MADE OUR NEW YEARS FANTASTIC. XXX

We have eaten here twice during the festive season, first as a family group and returned as a couple. On both occasions, we came away with a very happy and satisfied feeling. Gianni and his staff are most pleasant and you are never rushed into making a quick decision on the excellent choices from the menu. Both the food and the drinks were of a high standard and the restaurant has a very intimate feel about it. This is not your typical Italian restaurant, more the kind you would find in Italy itself. It is quite small so we are reluctant to share this information but do so to thank Gianni.
