After several days of very good British food (with an abundance of chips), we craved something different, and Mamma Mia came through. The Italian proprietor knows his food, and the meal was excellent. Very convenient just outside City walls (and around the corner from our recommended hotel the Hazelwood), service and atmosphere both super. And so is the gelato!

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.

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant when visiting York for a raceday and on each occasion have not been disappointed. Last year we were in a party of six and we all thought the meal, service, atmosphere was excellent and this year only being the two of us, we once again thought the food was excellent. We arrived early for our booking but there was no fuss, just shown to a table. The house wine is perfectly acceptable and the pasta was fabulous, just what an Italian restaurant should have. One of us had a prawn and mushroom pasta and for once it was a pleasure not to get pasta soaked in a heavy sauce. The staff are very friendly and informative and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a traditional family run business serving lovely food.

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!
