“Excellent authentic Italian cuisine”
Excellent authentic Italian cuisine… non pretentious quality food as it should be. Service was fantastic.
“Superb on every level”
We happened to pass this lovely looking new Italian restaurant and popped in for a drink to make a booking – everyone so friendly. Returned for our meal and were seriously impressed. Everything is freshly cooked and the ingredients are locally sourced.
This restaurant has personality, super staff,great food ambience and atmosphere. We have already made a further booking taking friends. Living in York we have virtually tried every restaurant going in the centre and this one has shot to the top of our list! Very impressive.
We heard about this new restaurant from friends and as we have tried and tested all other Italian restaurants in York, we were eager to try something new…..we were not disappointed! The Italians are renowned for being passionate about food, family and friends and this is exactly what we experienced, we felt part of their family! The food was authentic, the service was attentive and the atmosphere was excellent! My husband said this was the best lasagne he’d ever had (apart from mine of course!) and we will definitely go back and work our way through the menu! Oh and if I get to meet the owners, I’ll find out where they ‘bought’ their amazing glass pendant lights from!!
Came in for an early meal and was seated straight away by the manager. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Out drinks and food order were also taken by the manager. Very friendly, funny and polite guy. Drinks were brought up straight away and didn’t have to wait long for food. The food was excellent and would defiantly recommend to family and friends. Service was excellent and value was brilliant. Will defiantly be returning very soon.
“Lovely meal, very good value”
Another Italian restaurant? We have a lot to choose from in York but Il Caffe Dell’opera is a very welcome addition and it’s so nice to have a restaurant which isn’t a chain. Time and effort has gone into the decor and the staff are obviously keen to help and make a success. Very good menu, plenty of choice for Veggies and a big blackboard displaying specials. Everything is reasonably priced including the wine. The house red was delicious as was my Parmigiana Pizza.
Will definitely be back – pasta and pudding next time I think!
“What a find – terrific food”
We wanted to celebrate a special event and was so lucky we chose to go here because the food was fantastic and the wine excellent for the price we paid – too often wines can put the cost through the roof but this was not the problem here. The staff were welcoming and helpful without being pushy and offered advice which proved correct. Try the pasta dishes, he Ravioli Romeo in a blue cheese sauce was wonderful and the ladies both had Pizza which were just as they like them with plenty of toppings
Go there and enjoy an authentic Italian experience as we did.
