For burgeoning Italian chefs, a trip to pasta school involves spelling lessons in spaghetti shapes, statistics in pizza-pie charts and five-a-side games of meatball. Get a class in A-grade cuisine with today’s Groupon: for £19 get a two course Italian meal for two, plus coffee at La Vecchia Scuola.
A meatball’s throw from York Minster, amid the winding, historic streets, La Vecchia Scuola aims to educate the people of York in excellent Italian fare, from the impressive surrounds of a 300 year old school house building. The inviting cream hues of the regency dining room are complemented by a contemporary glasshouse with ecclesiastic garden views. The restaurant boasts a tantalising traditional menu so lovingly compiled that the pasta receives Valentine’s cards, with a dessert list suitable for the sweetest of sweethearts and a wine selection that woos even the greatest grape-sniffers.
Pairs of gnocchi noshing Groupon holders can get a two course meal plus a cup of coffee each at La Vecchia Scuola. After sampling a starter such as Peperone Ripieno: stuffed pepper, filled with rice and mixed chopped vegetables, served with tomato and basil dressing, it’s onto the main event, where hungry guests pick any plate from the chef’s luxurious specialities menu, including Tagliatelle Diavola: egg pasta laces tossed with Italian sausage, jalepenos and pecorino cheese shavings, or Braciola di Maiale alla Boscaiola: pan fried pork chops with mushrooms, onions, garlic, oregano and tomato sauce.
