We visited here as it was listed as taking Dine cards. The manager was very apologetic but said this was no longer the case but offered a good discount from our bill to compensate. The food was very good especially the lobster ravioli. We enjoyed...More

This is a very small but intimate Italian Restaurant , in the beautiful setting of the Shambles in York. This is an authentic Italian restaurant with delicious food and lovely staff . This is definitely worth booking if you are in York.

We happened upon this restaurant on a day out from Liverpool with WOW Woolton WI. How lucky we were. It was small, intimate, the staff were charming, and the food was excellent. Would definitely return if we were to visit York again.

L'Antica Locanda is a unique, culinary Italian experience not to be missed. Situated as it is on The Shambles in the heart of the City of York, this restaurant has been established for over ten years. Its menu offers an unusual variety of Italian dishes, some of them specialities of Puglia and Sardinia. The atmosphere is about as Italian as you can get and the cosy upstairs restaurant area provides a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the busy Shambles, with Italian music and a superb decor transporting the diner straight into 'a piece of Southern Italy'.
