    The service was exceptionally good, and was very reminiscent of being back in Rome! The food, as expected, was of an exceptional standard including the motions of service, and the range of the wine and cocktail menu was very reassuring.

    Another fabulous meal with friends. As well as the food being delicious, the staff are all really friendly. If you are lucky you will be serenaded by the excellent singing waiter. I recommend requesting a table on the ground floor where the ambience is lovely.

    As always great evening with friends who were eating at Piazza Antica for the first time. Dennis Polly Janfranco and the other two waitresses whose names I don’t know made us welcome and really looked after us. Food great, atmosphere great and the restaurant is a gem just around the corner from our home. Thanks to all the wonderful team David & Lesley

    Had an excellent meal. Very attentive and friendly staff. We had the meatballs and the prawns to start - both excellent. Then had calzone and my dad had the lamb cutlets. He described them as “the best he’s ever had!” Would recommend.

    We enjoyed an excellent meal at La Piazza Antica, with my lasagne being just as delicious as it always was under it's previous name, La Piazza. The waiting staff were very welcoming, friendly and efficient, in fact maybe a little too efficient, as it would have been good to have just another 5 minutes between mains and desserts, but a minor point. There was a large party of around 20 people dining at the same time, so it was occasionally a bit noisy, but that's probably because they were under the very high ceilinged area, which would have exaggerated the sound. All in all a wonderful meal and we shall definitely revisit!

    We went to this restaurant as part of a birthday trip for my partner and we loved this restaurant. The food was authentic and absolutely spectacular, especially the chicken and truffle tagliatelle. The cocktails were delicious, the wine selection was also very good. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially our waitress who was just fantastic. A wonderful evening and a real treat of a meal. If we ever visit York again, we will certainly be visiting for another meal.

    A lovely warm welcome with very attentive service throughout, but not overbearing which is always a plus. The food was incredible! Meatballs were well cooked and melted on your mouth. My Fiancé had lamb cutlets and I had Risotto and both were really tasty (and hot!) Will definitely be heading back.

    Good menu choice at reasonable price. Food was particularly good and service was impressive. To put this in perspective, it was a late lunch time with few other customers. This does not distract from the quality of food.

    Really disappointing after a previous very good visit. Starter came out within minutes of ordering but then had to wait over 45 minutes for the main courses. Tagliatelle was tasteless and Pizza came without chillies that were requested. Will not be returning.

    New Year’s Eve and the restaurant was obviously fairly busy, service was fine for such a busy night. Nice food, nothing special but fine for the price, we only had pizzas and they were good although I did find the choice a little lacking. We had a starter between us (fried calamari/ fish and squid) okay but a pretty small portion for the price and not particularly good quality. Drinks good value for the centre of York. Bit lacklustre atmosphere for NYE, waiters did their job efficiently but no real warmth, hardly any Christmas decorations in the rear of the restaurant where we were sitting, I know that’s a small thing really but the window was lit up very prettily but not so much when we got inside. Overall okay.
