Looks promising but......probably OK for an inexpensive meal with kids

Just off the main square this place has the potential but the food was only average. Such a shame as some of the previous reviews had said that the food was great. Did not find this. Cheese souffle to start with was outstanding, but that was really the highlight of the meal. After this it sort... read more

We found this lovely authentic italian restaurant whilst visiting the picturesque town of Valbonne on the last day of our holidays. Wish we had found it sooner because we would have certainly gone back again . We both had risotto which was cooked to perfection followed by tiramisu which was the best ever! The waiter was attentive, very patient and... More

Looking for a 'quiet' place to eat we stumbled across this brilliant Italian restaurant in a side street. The staff were very attentive, despite the large number of diners - mostly outside. We ate Salade de Poulpe, Brochette and Escalope Citron washed down with 2 Kir. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Well worth searching out if you want... More

Really authentic and well cooked Italian food. Decent portions-good value. Pasta al dente and veal tender and tasty. Too full for dessert! Recommend

We arrived late to Valbonne on a Thursday evening. Little Italy was the perfect place to go. I had an excellent risotto and my wife a very good lasagne. Shared a carafe of local rosè wine. An excellent evening - supported by excellent service. Been here many times before and will certainly be back many more times. A truly nice,... More

I think it would be tough to not recommending French food when you are in France; however, I accidentally walked into this restaurant with my friend and had a great meal when we were in Valbonne, France. In case you don't know where Valbonne is, it is located west of Nice and near Sofia Antipolis. The restaurant is located on... More

Went to Valbonne for lunch, saw this restaurant up a side street, spotted lobster linguine on the menu - had to go in. It was the best decision ever. The food was exceptional. Forget the hints of seafood you get in other places - we got a half lobster each, beautifully tender, with gorgeously silky linguine. What a treat! Not... More

This was the best meal we have has for three years and we have eaten at many good quality restaurants. If you have to starve one day to eat here the next it is something that must be done. The sliced fillet with balsamic vingar and Parmesan and roast vegetables with panacotta to follow. It was heavenly.

Had a lovely meal at the family run Little Italy restaurant in Valbonne. The menu is Italian so you can, like we did have the four courses and, what you don't often get outside Italy is that it does all truly taste Italian. There must be an Italian chef in the kitchen. These guys are fantastic! You can close your... More

We went for a romantic diner in the charming village of valbonne and stop by at little italy. Great restaurant, delicious traditional food, and the staff is excellent. Highly recommanded! Better to book in advance though.
