York is about as beautiful a city as you could wish to find and right on Shambles, it’s historic a most famous medieval street, sits L’antica Locanda, a gorgeous Italian restaurant that you simple can’t afford to miss. The menu here is as appealing as the restaurant itself and it’s filled with Italian classics made exclusively with produce imported directly from Italy. Not just that, here is one of the most exciting rotating specials boards to be found in the centre of York and the focus of it, as well of the main menu, is authentic pasta and fish dishes. Top all of that off with an all-Italian wine list and it’s absolutely possible you’ll fall in love with L’antica Locanda in an instant.
I love this restaurant. The food is brilliant, the location couldn't be more perfect in a city like York and the ambient is fantastic. Don't be fooled by the usually empty ground floor; everything happens upstairs. Gianni and Adrian are excellent hosts; you will be well served. And do yourself a favour and try the ravioloni with lobster filling.
the food and the wine was, again, excellent, the experience authentic, the service quick and friendly. if you have not tried it yet, you definitely should.
We had a lovely meal. There was myself and two daughters for lunch. I had seafood linquini and my daughter had fillet steak and other daughter had three course special which was really good value for £13.95. She had bruschetta to start and said it was delicious. then spaghetti Bolognese and then profiteroles. All our meals were tasty and lovely and hot. Thank you. Staff were lovely.
