Description: La Vecchia Scuola is a unique dining experience that can be found in Low Petergate, York very close to the Minster. An amazing restaurant set in a 300 year old Georgian building that was once York college for girls. This restaurant is now operated by new owners from February 2013. It has an innovative new menu with all food sourced locally and prepared for customer onsite.

We've found this fab restaurant last year...
It was nice sunny weather and we wanted to have our meal and drink outside. They have few tables in front garden separated from street by fence. Just lovely :) we are their regular customers... :)
Food is always " interesting " & different ( salmon roulade filled with mascarpone and prawns- you must try it!!! )
Service is always excellent ...
We're going to York this weekend, for lunch surly we will go there...

Best restaurant in York !

The food was really nice, however our stay was short lived. There were two large hen parties in being so loud I had to ask to move table. There was also a pianist playing very loudly making the whole experience not very pleasant. We would have stayed longer and ordered coffee and dessert but couldn't wait to get out of there.

Happened to be passing and spotted that there was going to be a Sinatra tribute night on Wednesday with a three course dinner so booked. It was great, we were sat in the conservatory, very good menu with plenty of choices, wine reasonable. Service was good and non-intrusive. Phil Fryer was Sinatra and he is very good, looks and sounds as Sinatra did in his younger days. Phil came round during his interval and spoke to everyone in the audience individually, taking some requests for songs. He also came round at the end of the show to say goodbye etc. We really enjoyed ourselves and counted us lucky to have seen the notice.

We enjoyed a lovely anniversary meal here. To start with we had the parma ham, asparagus, toasted sourdough and poached egg. It was superb - every mouthful was to be savoured. Then I had the sea bass which was delicious. My Husband had the mixed grill, although I can't remember the name of the dish. Nice choice of wine by the glass also.

There was a pianist playing (Saturday night) which added to the atmosphere.

Will definitely go back again.

My friend and I went here on 19/05/18 and it was fantastic, we were sat in the conservatory, it was a lovely evening and it felt as though we were on holiday. I had amatriciana and a side sale of mozzarella an tomatoes which was a huge size, all the food we ordered was very tasty, the staff were all excellent as well. I would definetly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go again.
