“The most friendly waitstaff in France...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010 via mobile

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!

“So glad we went!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2010

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. We had a pizza (wonderful) and the seafood linguine special (possibly the nicest pasta dish I've ever eaten!). They serve both Italian and local dishes, as well as international beers and Italian ones. Lovely house rose wine too.
The bill came to well under what we expected and, as seems to be the case in many restaurants here, we were offered a complementary glass of limoncello liqueur to finish the meal.
Overall: fantastic. Strongly recommended.
