we thought it would be a great italian traditional place, but it all turned out to be very average, rather dissapointing. Average pizza, average service and it was horribly noisy. Thumbs down.

We liked the pizza, the ambience and the layout were quite nice, the staff was friendly. Pity that tables outside are quite close to the road, but the restaurant is worth a visit.

The most friendly waitstaff in France. They even say please to each other. And unlike most French restaurants, they seem glad to have you there! Delicious antipasta platter. Great gnocci. Nice ambience. Just go early (7:30 for 8 pm open), they filled within 20 minutes after opening!

What a great restaurant. It doesn't look much from outside but the food, welcome, staff and value were fantastic. We went there on our last night here after looking at reviews on here and are very glad we did. The food was 10/10, the staff made us feel welcome, explained what we didn't know, and had a sense of humour.... More
