Near the Gare in Cascassonne, beside the Canal du Midi, what a find. Having missed a train & booked into the Bristol Hotel, I saw the welcoming lights of this little place. I went in really early, starving, the first diner in. The couple running the place were charming & the pizza was fabulous - huge slices of Parma ham... More

Small restaurant. Very plain but also very busy which was a good sign. The Bragioli stuffed with duck was to die for and the pizza very light and tasty.

This was recommended by Séverine at Hotel Astoria (see my review) as being very good and close by. Spot on. Naturally a predominantly Italian menu, the food and service are excellent. It's very small and popular so either book a table or, like us, arrive early - before 7.45pm. At the end of our 6 week European trip this place was... More

When first you see this place down next to the canal it looks run down and small. Well I suppose it is but the food is utterly wonderful. Good service and a good choice of food - Bistecca alla Fiorentina but it is too big for me so I had a pizza and my wife had veal. Both were divine.... More

for somewhere to eat (long day traveling) not many restaurants open around the hotel so, very happily, took a breezy table outside. Service was first class and friendly and matched by the food - I'd recommend the beef carpaccio.

This is proper Italian food. Everything was perfectly prepared from the amazing bruschetta to the spaghetti pino and the pizza Italia. Worth a visit

Spaghetti alla carbonara is one of my all time favourite dishes and the one we had here was the best I've ever had. The chef himself came out and served the hot noodles personally with a very fesh raw egg yolk in a half egg shell on top of the spaghetti. Stirred into the mix just before eating, this added...
