The place was packed on a Tuesday night and very popular with the locals. We were lucky to get a table for 3. My husband daughter and I got 2 wood fired pizzas and the fettuccine carbonara because the people all around us were ordering it and it looked so good. It was FANTASTIC. The salads were excellent too! The... More

Recommended by a friend, we were not disappointed with our experience here. I made the mistake of sprinkling my salad with the bottle of hot chili oil on the table, believing it to be an oil and vinegar combo. Waitress noticed and came to my rescue. She gave me a replacement salad at no cost with a little giggle.

It's always busy, the menu is quite limited in choice, but everything they make is quite good. Situated in one of the small pedestrian streets in Aix, with its own small terrace, nice atmosphere, with a nice friendly service, even though they are under a lot of pressure. Recommended!

We were refused drinks. Every single one of us ordered a drink and waitress denied surface and asked us to leave in a rude manner!!! After saying that we don't mind ordering take away pizza since we have to eat, she still told us we need to go!! Unbelievably mean and unacceptable! Terrible service! Really hope some talking will be... More

As far as Italian food goes this doesn't even put a blip on the radar when compared to some of the other pizzeria's around. Service from the young ladies was very nice and friendly however the older gentleman who I believe to be the owner/manager was downright rude. If youre in Aix-en-Provence save your money and go to one of... More

Founded by the late Jo and carried on by son Alexandre with Jo's trained chef, this is the place to stop for a pizza in Aix. Real wood fired oven and light home made pastry. If you don't like pizza there are a wide choice of other dishes. Situated in the centre of Aix, just fifty metres from the fountain... More

We were one of their first customers. Bad service, wanted us to sit in the sun and said too bad -- just bec we had a stroller. They don't have baby chairs. When we finished our meal, I noticed all tables had free bread and Parmesan cheese, and only our table was not served with it. Aggressive and rude waiter... More

I have been here many times and have had nothing short of an excellent experience each time. The cheese pizza and lasagna were so good and were an excellent representation of simple, classic Italian food.
