Great food-Great service!!

They took us without a reservation on a busy night. So kind and made us feel very welcome. We had two of their house specialties -- the fried sampler starter (delicious) and the special seafood spaghetti wrapped in dough. It's a must have.

We were looking for a place to eat on a Sunday night. Based on the Certificate of Excellance that they had received we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! The people were very friendly and spoke English. We were tired so we wanted to take the food away. We had a glass of wine while we... More

The thinnest schnitzel ever, you can get it in this restaurant. The batter is 3 times thicker than the meat. In fact you don't taste the meat at all, it is almost a vegetarian dish. The service is very friendly and the portions are small.

Dear customer, I apologize if the culinar experience didn't match your expectations. I asked to my personnel and nobody reported me complains about your comment. This means that you did not e even ask explainations to my team. In my restaurant we take properly care about customers and each time there's a problem we always try to find a solution... More

Really loved the food and wine in this restaurant. Most definitely well worth a visit. Wonderful Italian food cooked extremely well. The staff were very helpful. It definitely deserves the title of best Italian restaurant in Aix en Provence. PS make sure you book beforehand. We went on what we thought would be a slow Sunday evening and they made... More

Don't be fooled by the atmosphere and lack of outdoor seating, the food is exceptional. We had the carbonara and the truffle risotto and they were both amazing! It was the best carbonara we've ever had. We tried to sit in the restaurant as long as possible to be able to finish our dishes because they were so delicious. If... More

My husband and I were warmly welcomed at this charming restaurant, located near the Cours Mirabeau. We made the reservation online before we left the US and thought Italian food would be a nice change of pace at this point in our trip. We were very pleased with our meal! Great service continued throughout our meal, with our waiter translating... More

Not sure what all the raves are about. Small basic restaurant. Very friendly staff eager to recommend what he thought were the best dishes. The Salad we shared was uninspired. The seafood spaghetti, baked in pizza dough, though unusual in presentation, lacked in flavor. As for the porcini risotto, I make much better at home.

After hundreds of positive feedbacks left by customers coming from all over the world, reading your review I simply started laughing. You had the best of our kitchen, the most chosen and appreciated food by all customers who tasted. Now I have 2 options to explain your words: either you had both a big cold or you are really envious... More

The food was very good. I had a carbonara which was delicious followed by a perfect Tiramisu. We had to eat upstairs which was a bit basic. This area could do with a makeover.

Last night we ate at this little restaurant, they have seven tables in the front and I believe more in the bank but it is small so make a reservation or go early. We arrived before seven so we were his first customers. Sandro treated us in a hearty friendly manner and we sat where we pleased. We had a... More

We stumbled in early, as Dal Gladiator is in our street. Although they were booked out, the owner kindly managed to fit us in to the early sitting. He made time to welcome us, a relief after a long and tiring drive to Aix. Service was fast but friendly and conducted in a mixture of basic French, me and good... More
