Great pizza (no pasta though!)

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... read 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..

Ate Weds evening 8.30pm, right opposite our accommodation, but were disappointed! Main door closed, re- directing customers to door nearest kitchen. Met by overwhelming heat/ smoke of kitchen and just chefs looking at us, no greeting. Directed upstairs to full restaurant, last table, very noisy and popular ( but tables v clise and almost shouting at one another). Absolutely no... More

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.

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.

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
