If you want to eat a good (but not great) pizza in a location with character, then this is better than other basic pizza restaurants. They are made in a wood oven, but an unkempt looking chef, whose talent lies in pizza making, but not personal appearance. Avoid anything else on the menu, though. We thought a Tartiflette would be... More

I have eaten here so many times over the years and has really great food, service and atmosphere. But reading the recent reviews, it is sad that standards seem to have slipped. Our waitress didn't have much idea of the menu, and was swift and surly. The food was okay, but not great. They didn't seem to be trying to... More

a little worrying for all the people who get claustrophobia but quite nice inside. The food was ok but the service was pretty surly and poor. Pizzas were good but staff need to pull finger out😤😤😤

Arrived to a frosty welcome. Asked for a simple change to a pasta dish (no mushrooms) and were told that all dishes/sauces were made earlier in the day and reheated so no changes allowed!! Wine was brought to our table in a chipped jug, and when we highlighted it to the waitress she said... Don't worry, it was already like... More

We unfortunatly dined at this venue tonight. Upon arriving there were plenty of empty tables but we were told there would be a 15 minute wait. We decided at this point we would go somewhere else, but funny enough the waitress suddenly found us a table. We than waited a good 20 minutes to have any form of interaction from... More

Given the cuisine available in France I would give this place a miss if there was any other decent option again. Nachos were disappointing. House wine drinkable, but below normal French standards. Noodles were spicy and edible, but I probably could have got better elsewhere. With hindsight pizza may have improved the experience !

It would seem that the some of the more recent reviews sum up the current status of this place! We went here on the last night of our ski holiday for my daughter in laws birthday. We hadn't booked but we're asked to come back after 45 minutes which we did. We were given a table and waited another 20... More

Thought it says is a Pizza restaurant but they also provide other like Fondue, plasta and grilled fish/steak. Pizza was good but the ham was too salty. Quite generous portion so may consider to share starter with your companion ...
