Great pizza restaurant in the heart of Cherbourg

We visit this restaurant every year we come to Cherbourg. It never fails to deliver. This year there were a couple of errors but the owner sorted them out with great speed and good humour.

After searching city center for nice place to eat we came across this joint. small and friendly staff was a promising start but then the food arrived. Marketed as a Pizza joint this is what we ordered. the Pizza that arrived seemed like a frozen pizza that you buy in the supermarket. it also had no taste. I would recommend... More

Apparently trip advisor won't allow me to criticise this restaurant, I don't know which words they objected to, whether it was "vilest" or "inedible" or "spat out" or my compliment to the chips but I'll see if this version is acceptable.

Although this is mainly a pizza restaurant they also serve a good selection of typical French café food such as crepes and mussels which were freshly cooked and very tasty. The restaurant is quite cosy downstairs with very little room between tables which I could imagine would not be too great if it were full, but the service was very... More

We discovered this restaurant last year while looking for somewhere to eat before boarding the boat to return home and my son insisted that we return there to eat this year again before going to get the boat. It is situated fairly close to the ferry terminal. The decor is fun with old advertisements hanging on the walls. The food... More

I see from my previous review (please read) that it is over two years since our last visit.....(much too long but we don't get to Cherbourg very often!). Anyway, everything is still good....................................Well worth a visit.

After searching the streets for a perfect place to eat with children we came across this little place. Great spot, great service and delisious food. Portions of dinner and dessert were more than enough.

We had an hour to kill before the ferry and stumbled on La Pizza as it's right next to a car park! It was fantastic! We agreed it was actually the best meal we'd had during our three weeks in France. The pizzas were imaginative and carefully made. The goat's cheese, nuts and honey topping was a huge hit. The... More
