Unpretentious and straightforward pizza and pasta place. Good food, simply done. Some alternative house wines would have been nice, but service was friendly and quick. Worth a walk in

Just slightly off the Old Harbour area this restaurant was a hive of diners. The food was obviously all freshly prepared and quality was excellent, they bent over backwards to please children with slight changes to dishes. The town is beautiful and WHEN I go back, I will definitely dine here again

Enjoyed veal with mushrooms, sauce and tagliatelles. Dessert of lle Flottante Although we did not experience it, they also serve pizza. Seating did not appear to be a problem without a reservation for lunch or dinner, as we passed the establishment a number of times over the course of a week. Some of the staff understood enough English to get... More

Went here after we've red the god reviews on TripAdvaisor. We had four different pizzas. All off them no more than ordinary. The service was ordinary, and the cost was as in every other pizzeria in Normandy. Conclusion: ok - but no more than that.

Ate here one evening on the advice of our b and b host and were not disappointed. My husband and I both enjoyed our pastas and desserts and the service was very good,one young woman was handling the whole upper floor where we were seated, singlehandedly and it was quite crowded. Very typically Italian restaurant very enjoyable.

After a long day of driving to the sights around Normandy (using Honfleur as our base) we needed a bite to eat and Il Parasole was a welcome spot. I enjoyed my pizza and my father in law liked his mussel dish, my wife thought her pasta was o.k. The manager, Francoise, was great and provided excellent service. She chatted... More

Trying to have dinner lata at night (9:45 pm is really late for french standards) we found this simple but efficient restaurant. Menu is basically pizza, pasta and deserts. Service is excellent, with owner (at least it looked as the owner) taking care of customers. Pasta was good, the italian style. Deserts very good as well. As mentioned, prices more... More
