“Surprising discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Always nice to discover a little gem of a restaurant, especially when first thinking I would just have quick meal on the go; I was hungry and happened to be in the neighborhood when I saw Bellini, so I thought I’d go a for, yet “another simple comforting pizza/pasta cantina style meal” to fill up the stomach and keep going for the day…

What a surprise! From the moment I entered the restaurant, I was warmly welcomed and taken to a nice table. The menu has all the Italian favourites, yet, as opposed to the great majority of Italian restaurants around the world, the taste & presentation were simply perfect. You can feel that the Chef does give a lot of attention to the quality of the products he uses. Add to that an irreproachable, professional yet friendly service and a final tab that remains very reasonable and you have a winning recipe!

Too bad I was just passing through the beautiful city of Saint Jean de Luz but will definitely remember this unpretentious yet remarkable restaurant when I come back.

“Just perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

The food is awesome, service is great by a very hard working team. We can feel passion in the way the food is made and it tastes just like it!

“IF YOU LIKE ITALIAN....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

if you like italian food....and we do....this is the place to go. it was, in fact
the restaurant we chose for our first night in st jean de luz and what a
success it was! a really attractive modern room, the waiters extremely friendly,
and the food really 'special'. we had chosen it after reading the reviews
on trip advisor....so 'thank you' to those reviewers who recommended it.

“Nice restaurant, lovely staff, yummy food, excellent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We (couple with a small baby) called in here (unannounced) for a quick bite to eat on saturday evening. We were surprised at how open and friendly the staff were - a refreshing change from other restaurants in town. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated in a modern style and there was loads of space to place the baby stroller. Even though our French was poor, the service was prompt and the food was delicious. I loved the bufallo mozzarella (pesto with mint - what a great combo) and my wife had a very tasty pizza. Our baby was a big hit with the staff and they made a fuss over him (even taking him off our hands for a few minutes while we ate!). We are sorry that we did not have the opportunity to have a full meal here and we would recommend this restaurant above all others in town. It is the one place we felt that our custom was most appreciated, and probably the best value restaurant we ate in while we were in St. Jean de Luz.
