Turned up reasonably early in the evening and managed to secure a table in the upstairs seating area. Food was ok, There is a good selection of pizzas even for vegetarians, but unfortunately I chose a 'blanc' base pizza which is cheese-based rather than tomato based. So didn't really enjoy it that much. Service however was very slow. Several other... More

Best Italian food that I have had in Lille! You can see them making the pizzas on the ground floor. Great atmosphere and kind staff! Restaurant usually fills up fast at dinnertime.

Great restaurant with wide range of pizzas and pasta. Visited without a reservation on a Saturday at 7.00 and by 7.30 it was filling up. Very popular with locals. Even with language barrier staff were very friendly, helpful and patient. Excellent service. Good food, good wine and great atmosphere. Not to be missed on any trip to Lille.

Six of us -- four adults and two small children -- ate here for dinner last month. The atmosphere was friendly and embracing -- the kitchen staff all spoke Italian -- and the pizza was very good highlighted by a very thin crust and tasty toppings. Opt for any wine as long as it's Italian, naturalemente!

I took a vegetarian pizza, it was good. The dough is thin enough and crunchy. But Im not a pizza prof :))). The location of the place is great, on the small art street. Anyway, it's a cool place to hang out wt friends and share the pizza.

Very friendly staff, nice food and not to expensive! And it's located in the old part of the city, so you can take a nice walk first.

We were one of the first to sit down at a table. After our anti pasti we saw people receiving their pizza and even people leaving and we still had no pizza. We asked the waiter, who hardly spoke any English, and it appeared they forgot about out order. The pizza was great, nice crust and great taste. We had... More

Rien n'est définitif. Si pendant des années on a pu croire que la pizza était un plat bon mais sans dimension, Gilberto et sa squadra démontrent le contraire.Ils préparent des pizzas gastronomiques.Le Gault & Millau parle « d'une pâte magistrale » et attribue 2 Toques à l'établissement. Les ingrédients sont fins, rares et le résultat est unique.Sur 2 étages, dans une ambiance chaleureuse, au coeur du Vieux Lille.
