I have visited this restaurant a couple of times now and I love it! The restaurant is very popular so it gets very busy as soon as it opens, I recommend booking. Saying that, every time I have gone, the waiters made an effort to find us a table despite not having reserved. The menu is extensive and the food... More

On a hot August day we sat next to the blazing oven but with no regrets. We had an amazing pizza. under the watchful eye of the pizza man who made sure that I ate all the crust - who wouldn't. The place was packed full and all the dishes that passed smelled of authentic home cooked Italian food. You... More

We arrived in time to find a table outside. The whole restaurant was full within minutes. Excellent ambiance, service and food. A 'locals' restaurant, which says it all!

we thought it would be a great italian traditional place, but it all turned out to be very average, rather dissapointing. Average pizza, average service and it was horribly noisy. Thumbs down.

We liked the pizza, the ambience and the layout were quite nice, the staff was friendly. Pity that tables outside are quite close to the road, but the restaurant is worth a visit.

The service is warm and friendly and efficient. 2. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. 3. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. We made a reservation for 13h on... More

The most friendly waitstaff in France. They even say please to each other. And unlike most French restaurants, they seem glad to have you there! Delicious antipasta platter. Great gnocci. Nice ambience. Just go early (7:30 for 8 pm open), they filled within 20 minutes after opening!

What a great restaurant. It doesn't look much from outside but the food, welcome, staff and value were fantastic. We went there on our last night here after looking at reviews on here and are very glad we did. The food was 10/10, the staff made us feel welcome, explained what we didn't know, and had a sense of humour.... More
