“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We couldn't get into the place of our first choice, and a local merchant suggested la grappa. What a delight!! We had a beautiful French gourmet meal. The presentation was excellent and the food delicious. The canard foi gra was fantastic, as were all our other dishes. We have been to France a few times, have enjoyed some excellent meals, and would rate this close to the top! We would definitely recommend.

“Cosy feel and tasty food with good service”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We have visited at least twice per year for the last 6 years when staying in the area. The pizzas are the best locally, the 3 course menu has standard french favourites all cooked to perfection. The local desert of poire tapee is worth trying its tasty and you can buy some to take home to re create. There should be something for all tastes, young or older on the menu.

“French snobiness and disdain at its best”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

I asked the owner how big the pizzas were and I was told in a condescending manner they measured 33cms. We are not big eaters and having 3 slices each was enough so we announced we would be sharing a pizza with our own beer each. She told us she would have to charge us an extra 3 Euro for a plate to share the pizza with. In fact she charged us E 3.50 and the pizza was only 8 Euro. We were too tired to argue. This is the first time I ever had some one charge us for that and her behaviour was totally rude and non-professional (and I am not sure that that charge was legal...)
Madame the owners could use a few lessons in customer relations.

“Just about ok food, dark place”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I have been eating at this place with parts of my familie, as we couldn't compromise on any other place. We were seated in a very dark backroom of the restaurant and left after having eaten a Pizza without any outstanding merits, not hungry any more but also not to be repeated.

“Fun and local”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

It's a modest Italian place, but we enjoyed a pleasant meal on a quiet evening in Chinon. I dared to have pizza with duck gizzards, and it was very good. But there are more "American" toppings available too. House wine was very inexpensive by the pitcher.
