Great pizza

We went here last night, based on the reviews on TA and were not disappointed. The pizzas were excellent, service was very good, especially as it was so busy. We also tried the tiramisu, which was superb. A great restaurant and good value for money

we shared an antipasto starter which was really high quality, with cured meat, buffalo mozzarella, balsamic onions and wonderful cheesy garlic bread. The pizzas were fantastic, and the puddings home made and good. The service was lovely, and the place was buzzing on a Sunday lunch time. We would definitely return.

I can understand the reviews about the service, which can be slightly different depending on the day and if it's busy but come on.. The pizzas are just awesome, the best i've eaten so far, ingredients are extremly fresh and the dough is just delicious. Reasonnable price for the quality, and the wine is cool aswell, ask for the speculoos... More

In La Bottega, you just can't get it wrong :) My favorite italian and one of my favorite restaurants. Pizzas are great, made with mozzarella (speaking of which, you gotta try the "semplicemente mozzarella" entry) and with an excellent dough. They're really Italians, so you can adresse to them in Italian, if you want :) Not terribly expensive. If you're... More

We had lunch here quite late and the staff were really friendly and attentive, even when we were the last people there. We had pizza which was very tasty and enormous and a glass of the house red, which was excellent. Definitely on our list to go there next time we're in Lille.

In a little side street, leading to a very small square in the Old Town, this is s a lovely pizza restaurant. Got the last outside table at about 8pm, got very busy later and were slightly rushed off our table at the end as there were long queues. But pizzas were very good, freshly cooked and our waiter could... More

We first dined in the Valenciennes branch of this restaurant and we were so impressed we tried the one in Lille. The restaurant is so busy so its important to book, but definitely worth it. The pizzas are stunning and the prices are reasonable. As an Italian, I can say that this is not one to miss.

Terrible experience. Food was so so. Service was atrocious, rude, and intolerable. Do not bother with this dump.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here - we shared the burrata with some rosemary bread as a starter (recommended!), then we both went for the pizzas, which were great. Super thin and crispy, just as I like them. We managed to get the last table outside on a quiet side street so were able to watch the world go by as... More

If you want a good pizza in Lille, that's one great spot! The dough is perfect and the toppings are good, especially their ham. The waiter was friendly, energetic and efficient. The wine, which was a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, was delicious. If you want to go for a dessert, the tiramisu is to die for.
