We ate here for my daughters birthday. The pasta is served in skillets. Everything we had was wonderful. My boys had pizza.

We went here an wednesday evening and the restaurant was almost full. We had bruschetta for starter which they offer not only the classical way but also with a bit of cheese and mushrooms. It was really, really good and quite a lot. The pizzas were fantastic. The crust was perfect and everything very tasty. We were not able to... More

Very nice restaurant tucked away from the Main Street. Certainly a place where locals go as most tourists wouldn't be able to find it. Run by a lovely couple from south Italy. Pizza and pastas are delicious and authentic. Very good price as well. Would certainly recommend to anyone who is looking for a break from topical provincial food.

My boyfriend and I went here yesterday evening and were lucky to get a table as most were reserved. I'm glad we read other reviews to get there before 8pm without a booking or we would have missed out. We had the charcuterie to start and a pizza and both were great. Well priced and would definitely go back.

Nice little italian restaurant. You'll eat directly in the stove, quite original. Pastas are great. You can try this place once in your life. Only problem is that they don't accept credit cards, ger some cash before.

Very nice, little Italian spot tucked in a tiny pocket on Rue du Chapeau Rouge. Pasta is brought out hot in the pan with large servings - excellent. Pizzas are crisp and delicious. The small interior and exterior patio are intimate but quite relaxed overall and boisterous. Patrons seem to come for the night, so hang out and enjoy yourself.... More

My wife and I heard about this little gem in Avignon from our concierge at Hotel De Europe and boy he got it right, it was amazing! Chef Mimmo surprised us with dish after dish of mouth watering delight! Being Italian spending lots of time in Italy with my family (all self proclaimed chefs) we have become spoiled. But .....Mimmo... More

Incredible pizza, pasta and eggplant.Very cheap also. A server was a little rude to my mother which I didn't appreciate but i overlooked this because of the food.

We were in the mood for Italian, and found this place through TA. It is quite good. I had the arrabiata which was surprisingly angry for France. When my wife ordered it as well, but the waitress helped her lighten it up spice-wise, so she could eat it. I love the way they serve the pasta in the pans they... More

Cute little Italian restaurant hidden in the heart of Avignon. Must try their arribiatta pasta, like no other! Such wonderful owners. Felt like home.
