Description: 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'.

We first visited this restaurant for our Friends Wedding Reception which was
fantastic and we have visited again with friends and this week we finally managed
to take our Daughter for the first time and I know this will not be the last.
Such fantastic service and the Food well you can't beat the Lobster Ravioli, mind
you everyone else has tried various meals. The owner and host is fantastic and
remembers us every time we visit even though it is not on regular basis 3 times in
the last year!!!!!! We will be back definitely.

What a treat to find this great Italian restaurant in the heart of the Shambles! Our first night in York, after a long train ride and a few hours of sight-seeing brought us to the doorstep of this place. We were ushered upstairs to an intimate dining room and seated at a corner table at once, even though we didn't have a reservation. The southern Italian dishes were well-prepared and delicious, and it was clear from the interaction between the waitstaff and some of the diners that they had a regular local clientele. We weren't surprised. The service was prompt and friendly, and our daughter enjoyed counting the number of cherubs and angels decorating the room while waiting for a food to arrive.

We really enjoyed our evening here. The staff were very attentive , the food was all delicious and its a lovely little place with tables mainly upstairs in an old building in The Shambles, you would probably be wise to book as it seems very popular.

Food was very good and they followed up the meal with a complimentary glass of Sambuca,although very noisy as it was full. Staff very nice.
