Honest.  Simple.  Quality

Independent Back to Basics Italian Restaurant

The story of L’UVA

Somewhere between a classic Italian enoteca and a casual osteria you will find L’UVA vino e cucina. We are an independent restaurant/wine bar in the historic city centre of York serving traditional Italian plates and exclusive Italian wines.

Our small menu is focused on quality with an aspect of seasonality and our casual dining style offers a relaxed environment to share, savour or just snack.

To compliment our authentic menu the majority of our wine list is imported directly from Italy by working closely with producers we have personally hand selected.

a wine bar with authentic Italian wine and food, and a distinct independent identity.

L'Uva makes great play of the fact all its pasta is homemade fresh in-house. And it became obvious why. Both dishes arrived on lovely, flaring white plates. The portions were small: but the flavours were out of this world. My pasta was unlike any I'd had before: wonderfully, tenderly chewy in the way I imagine only pasta that has just been made can be. It was tossed in herbs, each of which had their own distinct flavour, and slices of fresh, fried tomato that was exquisite. Best of all was the blob of soft burrata cheese on top, a wonderfully chewy accompaniment to the dish.

It has much higher ambitions than being another off-the-peg Italian. It passed my key test of showing some soul in the kitchen and wins deep respect for getting off the ground at all in these tough times.
