We sat alfresco for a cheeky apéritif; a Peroni and a dry white wine. How anyone could want to sit inside to eat on such a hot, sunny October lunchtime?!? Not keen on dogs being allowed in too - very unhygienic in a restaurant serving food. A stunning outside terrace, with an adjacent L’Italien delicatessen, also serving lovely food. A great people watching spot...

Lots of places were busy so we ended up here almost by default and we were not disappointed. Service was friendly and the pizzas were excellent, light with lost of toppings. Would recommend if you're after a quick and easy supper.

Do not visit this restaurant. We thought the food was overpriced but felt pressured in to ordering by the arrogant male waiter. He had a very angry vibe and did not smile once or greet us. I called him over to order, I tried to order politely in French language but before I could he just snatched the menu of me aggressively and stormed off.
I don't know why you are in the retail industry as you clearly don't like dealing with people from your reviews on here. A bit of politeness goes a long way! We were nothing but polite and were waited on by an arrogant spoilt brat!

We found this little restaurant by chance, a little distance from the main tourist restaurants, in a pretty location by an old church. I enjoyed a very tasty Risotto St Jacques and my husband enjoyed a large Pizza with generous toppings. The service was efficient and we would recommend the restaurant to others.

Despite the overpriced but average food, our experience was marred by the outlandishly rude behaviour of the manageress. It was so bad that the other staff came out to apologise. It makes you wonder why some people choose to work in the service industry.
