Been coming to this restaurant every year for the past 10 years and have never been disappointed. Don't expect fancy white linen napkins, although do expect totally authentic and quality Italian/Sardinian food at its best.

I would describe this restaurant as a good 'allrounder' - the service was pleasant with chatty and helpful staff and there was a good range of food. While this is not the best every Italian food I have tasted, it was ideal for our party as we had a number of people coming from different places and needed a reliably... More

Walk through the door and you could be in the back streets of Naples. Barmy Italian family shout at the football on the TV and serve you superb Italian fayre. Leave your credit card at home - they don't accept them! Cash only. Great experience! Highly recommend. Many of the customers Italian too!

Myself and my boyfriend came to this restaurant on our first night in York with another couple we met and I have to say the food was absolutely beautiful. The location was perfect as it was near our hotel. Between the four of us we had the soup, garlic mushrooms, two different pizzas and the steak specials and it was... More

My wife and I are regulars to this fantastic little restaurant, and would recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Italian meal out. The food is delicious, staff friendly and the atmosphere cosy. The restaurant is only small, so book beforehand to avoid disappointment. Well recommended!

I have eaten about six times here now, and on each occasion the food has been of very high quality. The seafood is excellent and the pasta dishes are always fresh and served hot. The pizzas are good too, and the house wine is very drinkable! The service is always friendly and fairly speedy as well.

Fab little restaurant in York. Great menu with the standards there with some fantastic options on the extensive specials board. Very dinky space means you are fairly cosy with those on your table, but people who didn't book were turned away in droves. Book ahead and enjoy!

'Fine' dining it might not be; there is a (muted) TV on the wall and the tables are without table linen, the staff treat you like old friends, you have to pay in cash (no cards). But... if you've been to real Italian restaurants in Italy - the ones Italians go to - when you step in and see how... More
