We went to this trattoria based on the many positive TA reviews. Our experience was unfortunately not as good - we could not even say it was average, because average would mean an overall comparable performance to other Italian restaurants and this was not the case. We could say the service was an average performance including the chat with the... More

There is no need to trawl around the restaurants in this area. This is the best Italian restaurant by far. Friendly and hard working waitresses and food that is well presented and tasty is good enough for us. You may have to wait a while due to the popularity of this place but when your food arrives you will, I... More

Very good Italian restaurant in Caen. We had 2 kind of pasta, both were great. One of the pasta involved the chef flaming the pasta in front of our table and making conversation with us. We also had the mozzarella starter which was fresh and great. I would go there again. Only downside I could think of is the menu... More

We stopped through Caen for dinner and selected this place based on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The owners we're so nice and the meal was excellent. I had their signature dish which is a pasta that is mixed up in a wheel of Parmesan. It was sooo good. Prices were reasonable and the owner spoke good English as well.... More

In an area do Caen jam packed with restaurants, it was hard to decide which to go for. We picked this restaurant as we wanted a change from the Normandy cuisine. We struck lucky. We had a very good dinner and the service was warm and efficient. We were given a dish of herby cream cheese with chicory as an... More

Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Excellent food using local produce. Generous portions and good service. Although we didn't have it, the special carbonara,prepared at the table in a huge parmesan cheese looked amazing. Puddings were pretty good too. We had the "coffee special" - a coffee served on a plate with various delicious small puddings to accompany it. Good value for money... More

I have enjoyed S. Mugnaini La Trattoria ~ four times EACH a memorable meal/evening. I like the old Caen warmth too, which I see changing a little in the charming town. From bread to dessert (if you have room) were top notch with presentations that will make you smile!.Great specials too to complicate your choice. English menu available. American Express... More

We found this restaurant, located a bit hidden in the touristic street rue Vaugueux, thanks to the good reviews at the Tripadvisor site. It was a wonderful experience! I've never eaten such a delicious lasagna before, and my friend was very happy with the veal 'en trois saveurs'. The food was of very high quality, and at a very reasonable... More

Could the waitress be more helpful? Only if she carried me to my car afterwards. Simple delicious pasta with some delightful Italian wine, what's not to love. The dish cooked at the table next to us and finished in a massive cheese rind was a sight to behold!
