We were one of the first to sit down at a table. After our anti pasti we saw people receiving their pizza and even people leaving and we still had no pizza. We asked the waiter, who hardly spoke any English, and it appeared they forgot about out order. The pizza was great, nice crust and great taste. We had... More

Great Italian pizzeria in old Lille, where you can choose to have your pizza bianco (without tomatoes) or Rouges (with). I sat outside as the weather was balmy and had the Pizza Rocco di Albi( mozzarella,Robiola cheese, fresh saussage meat,rosemary and olives) It wasdivine, the crust so light, unlike the heavy, thick ones in UK and had a good proportion...

My husband and I decided to check out this jewel of a restaurant on our holiday and suffice to say, it was not disappointing one bit! We ordered the focaccia, which was served to us as a flat bread instead of the original fluffy focaccia bread (the only surprising thing), the Lolo pizza and tiramisu. The dishes were simply out...

A really nice place, a bit hidden. You can sit outside, which is really nice during summer. Staff is friendly. You can choose rather unusual toppings for your pizza. The pizza's are served swiftly and are made the way they should be.

I was here after a long walk in Old Town, it was really nice place to chill. Actually I wanted to have only coffee and dessert but waitress (cute English-speaking girl!) said it is impossible without ordering main dish (pizza or something else). Probably I'm not experienced traveler but this is new rule for me, I've never heard it before.... More

We called in on spec on a chilly Sunday lunchtime - the restaurant was busy but they found us a table upstairs. Service was good, swift and friendly. Pizzas were fabulous - the crust was delicious and just the right ratio of topping. Price was reasonable and I would highly recommend this restaurant for an authentic and delicious pizza..

Stumbled upon this restaurant for our last lunch as we were getting a bit tired of rich French food. It was a packed Saturday and we were lucky to get a table. All staff are Italian which gives a really authentic edge to the place. The lady next to us was disappointed that there was no pasta, just pizza -... More

Met by overwhelming heat/ smoke of kitchen and just chefs looking at us, no greeting.

Came to lunch time, service was quick. The pizza was excellent, the dough was so light, I could eat the crust just like that. It a must for pizza lovers.
