We asked for a table near the end of service and they gladly accommodated us. We were served quickly and enjoyed a good pizza with wine and it was very enjoyable. Erm, the pizza was sliced too 😃 not sure what else to say!

Tasty, thin pizzas but not exceptional. Quick service, excellent value and a lovely location. The salad nicoise was slightly unusual as it was served with rice

One of our favourites. The pizzas are really good and thankfully are now not just as huge as before.The service is good and the prices are okay for a nice meal.The ice cream sundaes are amazing and they quite happily bring two spoons.

I was looking forward to going to this restaurant as I had read about it on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately it was booked out all the time we were in the area, so make sure you book ahead.

We are not gourmet diners. Having said that we certainly arrived on the right night after an 8 year absence. We were seated same table looking out at the chateau. Food was good, service quick. For French Italian food this restaurant is just fine.

We went out hungry and tired and stopped in for an easy comfort food meal because the menu looked like it had what we wanted. The vegetable soup was bland and thin. The spaghetti bolognaise was also bland and needed lots of salt and Parmesan to eat it. And it had no extra sauce to enjoy with the multitude of... More

The front was full so we were ushered to the back which was still a nice courtyard, although no views on the chateau or passers by, but our first impressions were of a pretty angry waitress, not just cultural differences either as a French couple walked out after a few minutes.

Another of the many restaurants facing the chateau in Amboise. We sat outside watching in the sun go down over the chateau and people walking by. The food is fine, tasty and decent portions but probably catering for hungry tourists wanting something other than french rather than trying to compete as a high end Italian restaurant. The service was fast... More

If you are interested in eating something, please do yourself a favour and find another place. The surrounding is beautiful and the service is ok however the food is poorly made. We had a salad, tomato pasta and a pizza. Also the tiramisu desert was disgusting. Sorry guys, but this is no good. Hope you find something better :)
