This small pizzaria looks very unprepossessing from the outside and is slightly off the beaten track in Vire (a town we know very well), however, the pizzas are outstandingly good, being both tasty and crisp. Cooked in a traditional oven behind reception so it can get warm! Staff really chatty, pleasant and keen to help. Would be good for families... More

What a lovely evening. The pizzas were very nice and the owners and staff were just lovely. We spent the whole evening laughing and chatting with the owners, Isa and Valeri, and with other customers. The ambience in this small and cosy restaurant was amazing.

Small but perfectly formed. A very cosy Pizzaria, which appears to give everyone that comes through the door a warm & friendly welcome. The food is wonderful and everything appears to be cooked to order and is served piping hot, with a smile. The restauranteurs are so friendly and were keen to help us with our efforts to speak French.... More

Each time we use this pizzeria we are not disappointed. Good quality pizzas and excellent house wine make this a place to go back to time after time. Service is excellent. Try it! The only downside is that not local enough people use the restaurant to create a bustling atmosphere.

We love this place and often eat here. It has the pull of high quality food but also a really warm welcome. We have introduced several of our french friends here and they have all enjoyed the experience. A real find and value for money.

Pleased to have eaten here if only to meet the very humble and welcoming chef! It's so nice to see people who obviously love their work. We had two great pizzas (chef kindly amended the pizza I ordered on request) , decent wine and amazing maison frites for a reasonable bill and I would very much recommend the place. A... More
