Lovely location in the old town, nice Italian service and food. Recommend the clams. This is best part of town to eat on an evening

Good fresh cooking made to order with quality ingredients for an authentic Italian flavour. Set menu lunch option and reasonable menu choices and a decent quality option by the glass. all at fair value

When you feel like comfort food, this is a good place. Honest Italian - no frills. We shared a chacuterie and cheese platter then had pasta each both fine. Staff quick and friendly. Place was packed with locals by 8:30pm - always a good sign.

My friends Steve and Ama had treated me to a couple of nights of their garden to table cooking at their home in France so I was a little spoiled before we arrived in Biarritz. I had instigated the trip to Biarritz so I was a little nervous about taking them away from their home produce and inflicting restaurants on... More

We started with tasty grilled vegetables, followed by delicious homemade pasta, with lobster for my wife and vongole for me. All accompanied by the very reasonable house red. Excellent value!

We found this restaurant after happily wandering through the streets of biarritz. With 10 in our party, we easily found a large table outside and quickly chose our food. The waiting staff were attentive, friendly and quick considering it was a busy Friday night. I had veal with aubergine parmigiana which was absolutely delicious. The children had pasta with meatballs... More

Had dinner here with the family and I must say it was top notch. Service was very good, young waitresses looked after us well. I had the steak and the wife and kids had the meatballs. Although a small menu everything on it looked good from what I could see of others and people were not leaving anything on the... More
