Frank and his father Christian have kept the highest standards - both as a pizza restaurant but try the meat! look for Pizza of the week - we had prosciutto and rocket - superb!

Don't be put off by the slightly basic appearance or exuberant locals waiting for takeaways. The pizzas are great - the best I've had since Rome - and the staff are helpful and friendly. Especially good as 2 of us are vegetarian and eating in some of the other restaurants in Valbonne was difficult.

Went here on our first night. It was ok, good basic food but a little expensive. Service was slow unless you were local and not overly cheap. Average food, average service.

We come here every summer to eat a pizza while staying in Valbonne. You can eat for good prices and the pizzas are from the wooden-oven in the restaurant. The design is very basic but thats what we like about it.

The Valbonnais has been taken over by new people, who have modernised it and in so doing, stripped it of the charm and character that made it such fun. On the plus side, the pizzas and service are still good quality and value, the menu is the same, and it's unpretentious and relaxed.

I have only had pizzas delivered to my home from Le valbonnais...the service is impeccable as are the pizzas. Thick,chewy base ..the kind of pizza you want to keep eating even when you are about to explode. My firm favourite has been " Chorizo"... That is until they replaced the thinly sliced chorizo / pepperoni with a nasty smelly sausage... More

When i go for a pizza in Valbonne there is no doubt in my mind this the place. Service is good, quality as well. Good mix of local customers and tourists, old and young. One or two more interesting wines would have been nice, but the one I had was fine once i had it cooled down a bit. Looking... More

Went to Le Valbonnais based on Tripadvisor reviews and my experience was the complete opposite from was those reviews said. I found the place dirty (the owners were sneaking behind the bar to smoke), the service abrupt, the pizzas were very average,in my view. Given all this,I found it overpriced. I believe that other places in the area (eg, Auberge... More

They have this amazing pizza oven right in the restaurant. The pizzas there are the best I have ever eaten. They also make an amzing calzone. They make this rediculous limoncello...I dream about it....regulars get a sample after dinner. We will be there this summer and I am counting the days..
