Run, don't walk away from this restaurant. The servers (owners?) are horrible. He got mad because we weren't ready to order 1 min after we were seated. He returned in another minute and we still weren't ready. Then he sent his rude wife. The place only had two other tables of customers while we were there. He sent another server... More

*Arrogant waiter (possibly owner) - scoffed at us for asking for chicken with pasta. It may not be common but there is no need for the condescending attitude. *You would think given his superiority complex you could expect high quality food - unfortunately, this was not the case. The carbonara sauce was revolting (I've tasted better out of a tin)... More

Restaurant is on Cours Charlemagne, not so far for Perrache railways station and Best Western hotel. The menu is a classique for an italian restaurant with a large choice of pizza. The pizzas are big and plentiful. They are pricey but excellent. The host is correct.

This was a cosy little cafe not far from our hotel where had pizza, pasta & wine. What else do you have in France before heading off on a cruise.

We had 3 individual pizzas which could have been only 2, since its size is a little bit bigger than the regular ones. This is what made this a OK restaurant. Service is not that good.

Don't waste your money stop 3 metres before and go to the kebab shop next door the experience will be less disappointing and the food and service much better.

The food is plentiful, but the service was no big deal, and was a little bit expensive: about 15-20 euros per person.
