A fine Italian, with great meals and friendly service

Based on the other reviews, we made a reservation at 7 PM. This was a good idea. A lot of regulars came in, who had made their reservation. Some tourists needed to be sent away as the place was crowded. We had a warm welcome by the waitress and were guided to our table, with place for our child's... read more

Best bruschetta ever, even better than in Italy! Pasta dishes are delightful. I recommend this to anyone and say this with complete confidence.

Small with very friendly staff and owner, ensuring that the food is to your requirements. I tried the special of Noix St Jaques with shrimp and clams in a light tomato sauce and it was delicious while my wife tried the assorted ravioli. The house red was perfect and the only downside was the available seat next to the kitchen... More

We drove to Nantes to have my Scuba Diving Aqualung serviced at "Atlantic Plongée" in Bougenais on the Périphérique. Nearby was the Park and Ride Tramway, 2 Euros each to down-town Nantes ("Commerce" the stop). We followed the signs to the Cathédrale and Chateau de Nantes, previous home of the Dukes of Brittany. There were a plethora of attractive looking... More

We were in need of supper and came across San Marco. Charming service and a table outside were all good. Only bottled Heineken for beer, the food was good without being outstanding.

A wonderfull surprise! Just passing by, we simple decide to take the experience invited by the "plat du jour". Wasn't a mistake. Friendly welcomed, we left after a nice lunch experience for a very reasonable price.

We found this place by accident and managed to get the only table not reserved. The staff are friendly and the food is superb. We had Seafood Pasta as a main course and it was delicious and I would go back again. Book in advance if you can as plenty of people were turned away while we ate.

Chance brought this little gem to the fore and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful food, plentiful along with good wines. Obviously popular because it was full within 1/2 hr of us being there, so I guess we got lucky

I enjoyed dinner on my own in this cosy italian restaurant in the old part of Nantes centre. The menu is somewhat limited and biased towards seafood which I don't eat, which may have influenced my experience. The service was friendly and efficient, and the small restaurant became very busy after 8pm on a wednesday night with what appeared to... More

A colleague and I stopped for dinner at the this small Italian restaurant at the end of a week of meetings in Toulouse. We picked this restaurant more or less at random having found ourselves in this area at dinner time. The food was freshly prepared and served without delay, and the wine list was fairly extensive. Because this we... More
