Situated inside a 300 year old Georgian college building, La Vecchia Scuola has been stylishly restored, boasting an old world charm with its grand decor and creating the perfect setting for a romantic date or special occasion, and on the menu you’ll find an array of contemporary Italian dishes. For an exquisite Italian dining experience in York, book a table and head on over to Low Petergate in the city centre.
We were welcomed warmly and looked after with professional and amusing service. The food was fabulous and our party of six had a really super night out. Good atmosphere and the pianist went around the room asking guests for requests, a really nice touch.
Lovely food, two friends came that had not been before and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We usually come to York at least twice a year but will be recommending to others.
Excellent service, very reasonable price, great menu choice. Lovely view from the conservatory part of the restaurant, very interesting building. This is my second visit. Highly recommend.
La Vecchia Scuola presents Phil Fryer, with a tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra and the classic crooners.

After taking your seats at La Vecchia Scuola’s Low Petergate address to the north of the city centre, begin your meal at La Vecchia Scuola by sharing some antipasto like the salmone veneziana (smoked salmon roulade with prawns and mascarpone cheese served with lightly toasted breadsticks, capers and balsamic reduction) before moving on to a creative twist on an Italian classic like the ravioli di branzino (citrus sea bass filled ravioli finished in a lemon, tomato and king prawns sauce topped with grilled sea bass) or the pollo farcito (chicken supreme stuffed with spinach and pine nuts served with spring onions crushed potatoes, marsala wine and oyster mushrooms sauce). This is, of course, just one of many routes through one of York’s finest Italian restaurant menus.
