Perfect food and service
Lovely evening with friends
Lovely food, great service and fabulous value for money- would defo recommend ❤️
It’s the second time we have eaten here in as many weeks.
Great food , value and service.
Great food. Lovely wait staff. Very enjoyable evening.
One of the starters had vegetables that was still frozen pizza was cold risotto was terrible staff were not interested would not be back
Excellent food and really helpful staff. Will definitely be booking again soon!
Good service and friendly staff. My husband and I went for the Set Menu and it was delicious and nicely presented. The only thing I was disappointed at was the fact that no-one came and asked us if everything was ok during our meal.
Visited many times and overall lovely experience. Although last night large party in and my main course was only warm. And when the panna cotta arrived that and the sorbet were on warm plates so started melting. Just a small oversight for the couples customer.
Over all a good eating out experience, with my daughter and 2 grandchildren.
Shortage of menu items and components of menu items disappointing.
The Amatrician dish although very tasty was small for a main
We ate from the set menu which is very good value and the food was delicious particularly the sea bass.
Service was quick and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. Highly recommend.
Me and my girlfriend went for our anniversary. The food was outstanding for the price. The lasagna was unbelievable and I don’t really like lasagna. The service was out of this world. I loved the fact that it was really quick whilst the restaurant itself was busy
Ambiance lovely, refined feel but also casual and relaxed. Great welcome and attentive service. Service was efficient and friendly. Food very nice but also the price was reasonable. Overall a lovely experience!
The food was sub standard. We had the set menu. The chicken was incredibly rubbery. Starters were lukewarm. The Ladies toilet was disgusting with rubbish strewn all around the floor. Not what I would expect from a restaurant marketed as high quality
Food was amazing, reasonable value and lovely setting, only negative was the service was a bit slow but on the plus you didn’t feel rushed
The staff are very friendly and attentive.
Great selection of food and drinks.
Very accommodating for children too.
My favourite resturant to eat at so far in York, fantastic set menu, lots of choice, food of a high quality, lovely surroundings, attentive and friendly staff. Would definitely visit again
Good service, food and ambience. Helpful staff. Would recommend.
An excellent place to eat. Strongly recommend if you want good food at a good price. Service outstanding, fast and friendly. The set evening menu is outstanding value for the quality of the food.
Great restaurant staff were really friendly
Great value on set menu
Excellent service food outstanding very good value
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal last evening. We attend every time we’re in York. Thoroughly recommended
Warm friendly welcome, excellent food & wine served by lovely staff. The Pianist made the whole dining experience really wonderful. I will be recommending to family & friends.
Had a fantastic evening thoroughly recommend it. The staff were attentive and happy in their work, and we loved the pianist who came round to get suggestions for tunes to play he was fabulous. The food was delicious and a nice environment for a very pleasant evening, would recommend it to anyone.
A couple of drinks were forgotten but other than that it was perfect. Will definitely return.
Would never go back. Booked for my husbands birthday. Appetisers were stale, bread tasted fishy and hard, could’ve made a better bruschetta myself. Literally just chopped tomatoes on bread. Potatoes with the sea bass were old and reheated not fresh at all. Staff seemed extremely stressed out and all over the place. We weren’t even seated in a nice place even though I mentioned in the booking notes that it was my husbands birthday. Nothing special at all. Never going back and a complete tourist trap.
Excellent food and service in pleasant surroundings and a good location.
The service was very friendly and efficient. Food was very nice and the set menu is quite varied.
I did feel that having to pay extra for the peppercorn sauce was a bit strange.
However, I will definitely be revisiting this lovely restaurant.
Fabulous food, beautiful setting, friendly efficient staff and service and excellent value on the set menu. Lamb was delicious. Highly recommended!
Starters were excellent, pizza was nothing special. Disappointed, may have just ordered wrong item on the wrong night. I would return but avoid the Pizza
We have visited this lovely Italian restaurant several times and it was great to get back there after over 18 months. Food was fantastic. I had lamb cutlets and my partner had steak. Definitely back there
The food was outstanding! Can’t fault anything-can’t wait to come back for the tomato garlic bread with cheese as soon as possible :)
Wonderful experience staff very attentive delicious food
Was recommended by a friend we were not disappointed the food service and environment was outstanding will certainly visit again when in York
Lovely atmosphere, friendly, professional staff. The food was amazing, great prices.
Really good night , as there was a few different waitresses serving us we did have to keep asking for menus etc , did not spoil our night though .
Had a great meal and the service was excellent. Staff so friendly and attentive. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. We even had the pleasure of listening to a pianist who it appeared was a customer but could play the piano skillfully. It was a great evening to finish off a super week spent in York celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.
Lovely as always ,it was such a hot day but the restaurant was so cool & airy which made the experience that much more enjoyable
not very impressed by the service and atmosphere,the food was only average and overall was not the experience I would have expected.
The service was poor and when one pudding came without the coffee we asked for this to be rectified and were toatlly ignored.
The table locations near to the toilets was less than desirable and the use of such a nice building was not put to its best use.
We will not be going back and I think that this is accepted by the staff and they realise they can get away with poor service
