The place is adorable, the starters were large and very very tasty, we had the calamari and the cheese plate. Both were very good, the calamari was hot and crispy with a perfect inner texture. The assortment of meats and cheeses were diverse and well matched with chianti. My honey had the scallops and risotto very creamy and the scallops... More

Eternally grateful to the local man we were talking to in a York street a couple of years ago who recommended Little Italy. We were looking for the deli and he suggested we try the restaurant above. Now on our annual Yorkshire visit this is a must. My partner loves Italian and I'm a really fussy eater but we had... More

We were recommended this Italian by friends recently so on our annual trip to York in between Christmas and New Year we gave it a go. What a fabulous place the food was the best Italian food we had tasted and enjoyed all 3 courses. Highly recommended.

You would miss this place if you didn't know the restaurant was there. Just in side the city wall above a deli which is actually the same business, is the most fabulous restaurant. Service is second to none (Fabio was our waiter). Food excellent. Extremely busy even on a Thursday night in between Christmas and New Year which is when... More

Everything was excellent from the meal to the service. I was there with three friends and we all enjoyed our meals. The staff were all professional and very attentive especially the lady who seats everyone. A lovely positive experience.

This place reminds me of Valvona and Crolla in Edinburgh but I think it's better. Deli and quite a small restaurant hence the need to book. Food is not cheap but excellent. I had a pasta dish with steak, sun dried tomatoes, aubergine and pancetta, one of the tastiest pasta dishes I have had. Great service and good decently priced... More

Only just got in as very busy despite being low season. Nice choices on menu and gnocchi wth Gorgonzola and prawn and scallop risotto excellent. Limoncello tiramisu was also a... More

Visited her for new years eve and was really surprised. I expected an Italian restaurant that do the usual pizza and pasta but this was the real deal. They do not do garlic bread or pizzas but the anti pasta starter was lovely and made a nice change. We had something each form the specials board and the food was... More
