Harden's survey result
“A slice of Italy in York complete with TV screen showing Inter Milan playing valiantly (but silently!)” and a menu of “super trattoria food at reasonable prices”; pizza pilgrims are also well catered for.
“A great find” – behind an unprepossessing exterior, Sardinian Paolo Silesu’s “jolly and buzzing” outfit serves “excellent and imaginative dishes” including the Italian classics (and is “paradise for pizza lovers”). He recently opened an out-of-town branch at Sutton-on-the-Forest.
“Fabulous pizzas, fabulous fish and pasta, fabulous service…” – you “can’t go wrong” at this “unique and quirky” Sardinian; “if you like watching Italian football on TV whilst eating” and if you don’t mind the intimate setting, “you will truly be in paradise” (albeit one that’s a “bit swamped by Tripadvisor devotees”).
It “looks unprepossessing on the outside”, but this is in fact a “very welcoming and jolly” Sardinian, which sets the tone with an “enormous painting of Paolo the owner in the first room”. Its many merits include “divine and inventive homemade pasta”, and service in a “buzzy, undersized room by Italian family members”.
