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.
Four of us dined here on 9 December 2017. All the staff were cheery and pleasant and we had some banter. All the food went down well, especially the ravioli, ribs, calves liver and steak. We will go back next time in York.
Beautiful food as alwsys, this is our favourite restaurant ! The fillet steak is the best we’ve ever eaten! It’s like being in Italy with the quirkiness and great tasting wine. All staff are lovely with awesome customer service. You need to eat here-you won’t be disappointed.
Great food with a good menu and lovely atmosphere - upstairs is very cosy and Christmassy. The waiting staff very friendly and amusing. Highly recommend!!
Great food and lovely ambience. Will definitely visit again. Both of our pastas were very good and tiramisu one of the best I've ever tasted.
Our favourite restaurant in York. Rustic, authentic and friendly with superb food! We came back to York from Kent on a mini break and planned our visit around eating at L'antica Locanda. Great value for money is a bonus! Already planning our next return!
Very disappointed - we have been to this restaurant three times before and the food is sublime. Arrived on Saturday and was made very welcome by the waiting staff who were friendly and efficient. so what was the problem? the Manager was at first friendly and then became annoying. He had made a new desert which we didn't want to try but felt bullied into. Two of us were served the desert which we made clear we didn't want. He then made personal comments about other people on other tables. Food was beautiful, waiters tried hard, but the manager is a liability. Very disappointed.
Lovely intimate restaurant with nice view of The Shambles, especially with a window seat upstairs. Good home cooked food at reasonable prices with good friendly service. I had the Lobster & Prawn risotto which was to die for. Highly recommended, what's not to like!!
Fantastic little restaurant with main dining room upstairs overlooking the Shambles. Great wine list (had the vermentino) and superb specials. Cosy candle-lit atmosphere and very good service. We'll be back.
Amazing food, lovely staff and building. Went here on the Sunday and then again on the Tuesday because it was so good. Would highly recommend. Gets booked up easily, even midweek so would recommend booking first!
Brilliant! So authentic awesome food and atmosphere, price was really good and specials menu really got me excited, key for me was the atmosphere and quality of food
