It's good and they have a menu translated into English. The food is not very expensive and the service is personal and fast. You can pay separately by card if you wish so.

Can’t fault the food. Calzone was huge, bruschetta’s very nice and Anchovies very anchovy. But my 50cl Leffe was distinctly more froth than beer. Probably about 3€ worth! But of course I’m British, so couldn’t complain at the time.

Had lunch there outside. Dishes goat cheese salad and "brandade de morue". The goat cheese salad was nice with lot of cheese but the brandade was similar to dish purchased in shop. The service is slow.

Yes, it was Sunday and yes, it was only mid-afternoon. No dinner available until early evening. Had really set our mind on something more substantial than pizza but that it had to be unless we wanted to keep walking and searching - which we didn't....More

Walked past here a dozen times over last few years, what a mistake. Says Pizza outside, but does all sorts of Italian food. Pizza is fresh made when you order, thin and crispy like it should be, none of this thick and chewy rubbish. Loads...More
