We found this restaurant on our last day in York and were very impressed. The pizzas were huge and so tasty. Hubby had a tuna starter which came in a parmesan basket and was large enough for a mains. Service was excellent.

Had a beautiful meal there, my pasta was very nice and the portion was very good. The highlight was the tomato garlic pizza starter and the friendly service not like other Italian restaurants where the waiter thinks he's a king!

Impromptu visit to York on our way back from a wedding and found this gem of an Italian restaurant. Fantastic, authentic food. We shared some meatballs to start followed by a calzone and the duck pasta. Would highly recommend all dishes. Great value too.
