We went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening with our teenage grandson we were greeted by friendly staff and shown straight to our table. We found the whole experience to be pleasant and staff attentive, my only critisism is my crab and pasta main was on the dry side.

We booked this online on a very busy Saturday night when everywhere else in York appeared to be booked. When we arrived it was a bit of a shock - an enormous space, packed to the gills with tables and incredibly noisy. We ordered beers to have first and a bottle of wine to have with our meal but had still not had the beers when the wine arrived. We said that we did not want our starter until we had drunk our beers but in the end they both arrived at the same time and the waiter point blank refused to take them away for 5 minutes. The manager was called over but couldn't have cared less. Fortunately they were cold so it did not matter and, it must be said, were excellent (parma ham and melon).
The rest of the meal was extremely good - the best lasagne I have ever tasted and my husband said the same about the linguine bolognese. The service was also very fast and we had eaten a 3 course meal and left again within an hour!

Ordered a white wine got a red served ...didn't complain starter was nice then main...steak was ok but spinach was dry and unedable as were the rosemary potatoes I ate half of one and couldn't stomach the rest as were dry and tasteless, like the spinach then when mains was collected waited 10 mins for a dessert menu which never came as our waiter was to busy taking then helping 3 other staff members clean one table behind us! We left and complained at the door and went elsewhere for dessert £70 for a poor meal and poor service avoid!!

Horrendous service from start to finish! Waited ages to even take our drink order! Wasn't offered an additional drink throughout the meal and the waiter was more interested in talking to one of the chefs than asking if we wanted a desert menu! Would not recommend this place at all, it was quiet and still offered shocking service!

Went with my partner for Sunday lunch. Menu is varied with plenty of things to choose from. We chose fried calamari to share, linguine and ravioli for mains and both had some desert. Food was very nice, very fresh and tasty. Staff was polite, yet we had to wait over twenty minutes for our main courses after we finished our starters (which was an obvious mistake of staff, since there were only few more tables occupied and other people recieved their food a lot sooner than us.) The place is clean, but has no atmosphere whatsoever. Would definitely reccomend for a quick bite of lunch, nothing more than that though.
