La Vecchia Scuola is a unique dining experience, new to York. We offer authentic, adventurous, and creative Italian cuisine in the heart of the city, a stone's throw from the world-famous landmark of York Minster.

The excellent standard of our service matches the exquisite standard of our food. And the view? Well... it simply takes your breath away.

Yes, this is fine dining - but without any stuffy, standoffish formalities. So come in. Unwind. Have a coffee and a bite. Enjoy a lunch (long or light!) or visit us in the evening and take time to sample our laid-back ambience and diverse and distinctive menus.

Wow, I was overwhelmed when I came to visit this restaurant. I learnt that the place was an independent as I had never seen the restaurant's name before. The owner is italian and absolutely fantastic, he really made us feel welcome.

My husband and I came to visit York for the weekend and decided to try an italian restaurant, as we wandered around, an italian gent (the owner) greeted us with 'bonosera senhora' and what a lovely welcome that was, he introduced us to the menu and allowed us to view the beautiful building.

I have to admit I was stunned at how busy the place was, and although the staff were busy, they were as attentive as they could be. We really felt welcome in this place and for sure, we will be back.

Bonnosera to the staff at the restaurant, we will see you soon.

Lovely setting overlooking York Minster with beautiful gardens and a bright airy conservatory. We had the chicken and mushrooms which was served with broccoli carrots and potatoes. The best £5.95 I've spent!! It was delicious!! The rose wine was lovely too!! Very friendly staff!! Definitely worth a trip back to York for the chicken!!

La Vecchia Suola provides horrible foods and services. Not only we thought so. Many customers at the same night of our visit who sat next to us shared the same feelings. It's a very unpleasant experience that spoiled all of our memory about York and the minimal standard of, if at all, an italian restaurant and their honesty and decency as a people.

We have eaten in many italian restaurants during our trip. La Vecchia Suola is by all means the worst.

Unfortunately we found the services poor, and a tastless meal, which took forever to appear.
