Fantastic service and food

The previous reviewers got this right. The restaurant does not look the most fancy in Valbonne but it is one of the most genuine. The service was fantastic. Mother and daughter both equally friendly and helpful with none of the patronising or condescending attitude of some other places around. This... read more

Great family run place where they totally understands good friendly service and good food. Top place to go outside the summer season.

Don't be put off by first impressions of the external or internal decor - it is quite basic compared with some of the more snazzy restaurants within Valbonne itself and in the surrounds. We felt we were in a mountain chalet not a pizza restaurant in a medieval village setting. But most importantly we experienced fantastic service, delicious pizzas and... More

This family-run pizzeria is a bit further away from the busy village square, but the prices are much more reasonable and the atmosphere really friendly. There are only three or four outside tables, so if you want to eat outside, book ahead. The pizzas are consistently good, their salads are great and the service is impeccable. I don't know how...

this family run restaurant has some great pizza ideas and its home made, thin base and top fillings. Cosy surroundings, but probably best outside the summer season as mainly indoor seating.

We had been recommended this place by some local French friends who love it. We struggled to get enthusiastic as the food was only OK as far as we were concerned, not really particularly special and the décor etc was a bit too traditional/tired for our liking. Service was pleasant and the cost reasonable. The choice on the menu was... More

I plate for everyone - and all as tasty and scrumptious as the next - a very nice family run restaurant - you can tell they enjoy their work - it translates in their smiles and service

This can't be the same restaurant with all these positive reviews as it was the most tasteless pizza I have ever eaten. Bland, burnt and boring. I only ate it because I was tired and hungry after a long day.This was the first open restaurant we found driving into Valbonne and if I visit this area again, I would rather... More
