Lucca in Princes Avenue has been fined £6,150 for failing to manage their waste properly.
Bags of rubbish from the restaurant were found dumped on a public footpath in Hinderwell Street, Hull.
The business also failed to have the appropriate provision in place for the collection and disposal of their waste.
Councillor Anita Harrison, portfolio holder for waste management at Hull City Council, said: “By taking a tough stance on enforcement, we can deter any potential offenders.
“We encourage members of the public not to shrink from reporting any perpetrators they see. We will prosecute, and when convicted we will name and shame in the hope that we can stamp out this anti-social behaviour.
