La Fringale

Rue Lamartine, Cassis, France
Improve this listing
Ranked #33 of 84 Restaurants in Cassis
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: This is a tiny Pizza place in Cassis that serves pizzas made in a wood burning oven. It appears, for the most part, to be a one man operation, as well as a server and a dishwasher. It is the best pizza I have ever had in my life. You won't find it on a website and it is down a pedestrian only street in Cassis (on the corner of Rue Lamartine and Rue Docteur Severn Icard).

Nice "feu de bois" but very bad pizzas. Soft and without any taste. Small stones in the salad because it wasn't washed proporly. And no payment with créditcard. Don't go there.

From the moment we entered the pizzeria Marcel (the chef) made us smile with his jokes. Other local guests and the waitress were also super nice. We had a feeling of being invited to Marcel's living room, with a large pizza oven on the back wall. And the pizzas - one word - amazing! Crusty base and lots of cheese.... More

You almost have to climb over the other guest to get to your table, but the owner is a character with a ridiculous, non-functional cash register and a 40-year-old(?) picture of himself on the wall. The wood-fire pizza and lasagna are delicious, and the large chunks of beef he roasts in the same oven look and smell outrageously good!

Marcel ... oh Marcel ... so funny and friendly! Never had so much seafood in one pizza. Never had a homemade pizza so quickly in our plate. 12 EUR for a pizza in Cassis is totally a deal. Place is a bit small so you might want to book. Sophie&Andy

It would be an entirely different experience in warmer months when customers could eat out in the narrow streets, but in early January we managed to find seats in a snug room crammed with a three or four small groups, an oven, the pizza maker and one or two helpers. Did I say "groups"? Lively food and lively conversation made... More

Gotta love the huge photo of the owner from 30 years earlier that hangs proudly on the wall. The pizza oven is the centerpiece of this little hole in the wall that turn out phenomenal pizza. Have the fringale special.

Genuine warmth and great pizza from a wood fired oven. Lots of local people came and picked up pizza to go while we ate and lots of locals came and sat and ate in the later evening. This is not a tourist trap. We ate pizza and salad. Both were excellent. We ate out 22 nights on our trip and... More

We recently visited this restaurant while we were in Cassis and were blown away. The restaurant is located on a corner, and has only outdoor seating in the pedestrian only streets. The inside is tiny and has a waiting area, wc, wood burning oven and counter space for the owner to work at. We got a 4 cheese pizza to... More
