We visited La Rochelle for the first time for a week with 20+ friends. Ourselves and another couple went to le Italian for a meal and where warmly welcomed by all the staff, items on the menu where explained due to our lack of French. Food was served in a timely fashion and was well presented and tasted delicious. We didn’t feel rushed and enjoyed our evening so much we returned the following night with 10 friends and although there was no tables available in the main restaurant area they kindly opened the other part of the place up for us and we all received the same standard:of service as before. We also went on our final night before returning to the UK. We will be back there when we visit La Rochelle again. Thank you Henri for taking such great care of us.

Vety quick service, almost too quick as pizzas came within a few minutes of having got our apéros but great choice of pizzas and able to make vegetarian versions of meat ones on menu. Couldn’t get in the Ragazzi which had 30 minute waiting list as usual so gave this a try and really glad we did, will be back.

We had called in earlier in the day to book a table for 8pm but were told to just turn up. Luckily we were slightly earlier than 8, as the restaurant got very busy very quickly! The food was good but the service rather slow. We sat for ages having finished our mains before our plates were cleared and dessert menus brought.
The strawberry soup dessert deserves a mention- very unusual and quite pleasant!

Stopped here today for lunch. 3 adults and 2 dogs.

The welcome was a bit frosty to begin with but they warmed.

We ordered an Italian platter as a starter for 3. Then 2 lasagnes and a veal Milanese and a bottle of frascati.

The food all round was excellent. The best veal I’ve had for a long time. Coffee and some grappa to finish.

All in all a great lunch and would recommend. I would have marked it excellent if the welcome had been more enthusiastic.
