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.
Very nice and cosy place. Staff were all really attentive. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the dishes we ordered were all delicious. Highly recommended.
Lovely restaurant in a nice part of the City, great food with good choice, and service was excellent and even a piano player which was nice.
Booked table of 4 for 1-00pm on a Sunday, lovely conservatory table overlooking the garden. The waiting staff were amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and super efficient. We all ordered off the special menu. A fabulous mix of dishes from chicken, fish and pasta. For starters I had the pate served with toasted brioche divinely creamy and delicious. My main was the chicken and mushroom dish with roast potato, so scrumptious. Even though very full at this point a little pause to enjoy the rest of our wine and dessert was a must home made Tiramisu it was heavenly delight for the taste buds. A couple of cocktails completed a lovely afternoon spent in fabulous surroundings
We had excellent service and lovely food. Just a small comment about the seating. We had to ask to move tables as the cream chairs are too low and eating would have been very difficult. As we were eating early and the restaurant was quiet this was no problem, but if it had been full obviouslyit would have been more difficult to give us a suitable tables. As I believe the cream chairs are new, perhaps cushions could be provided. We will definately return as we are always happy with our meals there.
What a wonderful restaurant. Beautifully set in a 300year old building, and a conservatory set in well maintained gardens la vecchia scuollo really is a gem. Stunning restaurant with attentive service and most importantly beautiful food. We ate off the set menu which, at 3 courses for 17.95, provides wonderful value for such quality food. Cannot recommend la veccia scuollo enough. We will definitely be returning next time we are in York.
Great Italian food served in very pleasant surroundings by staff who are courteous, attentive and polite. We always enjoy Italian food making La Vecchia Scuola a must visit destination whenever we are in York.
Went here for a meal with friends. Our group included a vegetarian and someone who is gluten free, both were well accommodated by the menu. Lovely building, we were on a great table in a sort of conservatory area which meant we could enjoy the summer evening without being fully outside which was perfect. Delicious food fairly priced and attentive friendly staff. Would definitely recommend and return.
The food was beautiful, however, a pianist began to play what should have been background music, I suppose to add to the ambiance. This would have been fine had the music not been so loud that we could not hold a conversation over dinner as we couldn't hear what was being said. It was such a shame as the restaurant is beautifully decorated, food was lovely and the staff were nice and pleasant as well. May I suggest moving the piano out of the main room where a tiled floor and high ceilings make the noise level seem worse.
