We went in for an early tea at about 5pm on a Sunday evening and for a while we were the only ones in the restaurant. It's a very dim lit restaurant with a lot of red atmospheric lighting. The staff were friendly enough, my Lasagne tasted freshly cooked with fresh ingredients and my friend also really enjoyed hers (can't... More

Popped in for a quick lunch, both my husband and I had pizza. Our order was taken and delivered promptly, which is ideal for a midweek lunch when time is short. The pizza was good, tasty and filling. Service was okay - efficient but unsmiling.

Visited here one evening whilst in york. It's a nice little Italian that serves lovely food. I had a pizza which was nice and my partner had the risotto which they also enjoyed. The service was fine also and reasonably priced. Overall would try again no problems!

The food was cheap, the decor of the restaurant was nice (if a little low lit), but the service was frosty and the food, average.

Stopped off here on a Tuesday evening to see if a table was available (there were only a handful of diners in the restaurant) and if it was possible to accommodate a wheelchair user. It should be noted that there is a step into the restaurant but if you are a wheelchair user who can stand and/or have help to... More

My wife and I have been going to restaurant Bari for over 25 years. Whenever we go to York, we have a meal there. Nice memories. The service has always been friendly. The food has never been a disappointment. The house red is always a good one. If we have had bad service, we would say. You can't rush a... More

Popped in while having a day trip in York, was lovely to be in a relaxed Italians on the shambles. We popped in during "happy hour" the pizza was nice, the service wasn't too bad and good value too. The only thing I would say is the pizza was a bit small and they bought our meals out at separate... More

Disappointing on every level. All the food was average at best - essentially like 5 ready meals - and unlike a ready meal, it took forever to arrive. We took our daughter and my in laws - thinking it would be nice to each in such a central, historic location, but it was worse than any Italian I have been... More
