We visited this restaurant today for lunch as it was highly recommended by our Italian friends. The restaurant itself is very small and they try to squeeze in as many customers as possible, we just felt uncomfortable. The menu with the special board is a good size, but nothing interesting on it, and a bit over priced. My Mrs had... More

Again and again we go to this restaurant and the reason why is because you cannot get a more authentic, delicious, value for money pizza in the area! This is a rustic family run Italian casual restaurant serving authentic Food at great prices. Don't be put off by certain poor reviews on this site. Go here with an open mind... More

This has everything you love about Italian restaurants: chaos, atmosphere, noise - but above it all, it is beautiful authentic food served with passion, care and integrity. The menu is simple and wonderfully supplemented by exquisite specials, the waiting staff, warm and great fun. Will definitely be back to this gem.

This restaurant epitomises the best in Italian dining. It is chaotic, yet highly organised, it is busy, yet friendly and the service is excellent and attentive. There was a mixture of ages including children the evening we were there and quite a bit of Italian was being spoken - birthday party. The food has that authentic feeling, great flavours and...

A group of three of us had the early bird special - basically you buy the main and get a free drink. We all had the lasagne which was great. Service was patchy but you could see that as part of the charm. A bustling place with an interesting menu. Be warned it's busy and only takes cash.

Came here on a recent trip to York after being recommended by our guest house host. It did not disappoint. We loved it so much we came back twice. Both times we had pasta dishes which were absolutely delicious. This is an authentic Sicilian restaurant where the food is freshly cooked in the kitchen at the rear. The house wine... More

When I eat here I am back in Italy. The food is so authentic and has a friendly atmosphere. When I want a treat or special occasion I have a 100 mile round trip, hopefully this will reinforce how much I rate this place.

One of our favourite Sardinian restaurants in the heart of York . Front of house Sebastiano and staff , led by one and only Paulo. Gave a couple of our friends a most memorable early evening celebration meal . They went home feeling special and enjoyed their meal chosen from the extensive menu . It was a first time experience...

Our recent visit to ll Paradiso was absolutely fantastic, the food was amazing. Three of the four of us had the langoustines for starter and it was amazing, The pasta dish you could tell was homemade pasta, steaks, risotto were all very tasty and good Italian cooked. The atmosphere was also very authentic and made the night. The house wine... More
