This used to be my favorite restaurant, but I can no longer recommend it. It has inexplicably taken a turn, same owners, same shefs, but I and a friend have recently had mediocre meals there, and they seem to have abandoned their free digestive at the end of the meal.

Book Il Borsalino - a must if you like Italian food. It is quite unassuming and easy to miss but always busy so book ahead.

Try the Burratta if they have it (fresh mozzarella). If you are nice to your waiter he will offer you an amaretto or limoncello at the end of the... More

We were recommended by our Hotel Concierge to eat at this italian restaurant in Bordeaux, France. Sometimes even the best recommendation can be flawed. Not this time! This was one of the best meals we have had in Europe. They were so nice and polite and served the best food at very reasonable prices. Very casual atmosphere and they accept... More
