Great Italian with typical feel

Italian restaurant with typical southern cuisine, by the quality of the food is not as good as it could be. Especially pizza is not really good. What a pity!

Fried sardines were amazing. Great house wine as well. Good service. Family own, and the bread ooooh the bread, freshly stone oven baked.

One of my favorite place in Neuchâtel for Italian food , but you need to like noisy, squeezy and on game night, soccer lovers shouting about the game….Prices are great and service also. It feels like home.

I found Farmiglia Leccese very Italian, especially having just spent a week in Tuscany. Excellent breads made as ordered, just right pizza and by the look of those around me, very good seafood and meat dishes too. While they may not speak great English, smatterings of Italian and French will get the message through... and who doesn't carry basic French... More

The food is nice, and the staff is pleasant but the ambiance is very dated , the building is decrepit and looks like it needs major work done, there is very little parking near by. But it's always crowded at the weekend so they must be doing something good!

This place is not easy to find because it's a really a restaurant... More a "cercle" where we can experience great popular atmosphere and very good family food
