I last visited in the summer, when the pizza oven turned the whole restaurant into a sauna. This time, mid-December, the additional heat seemed like a bonus. I tried initially to book for 8pm, but was told that they had two sittings, and that we would need to be out by 9:30, so I changed the booking for 7:30. We... More

We were taken to this excellent little restaurant by some friends that live nearby and were impressed by the geneality and warm welcome of the hosts. The pizza is delicious, handmade and cooked in a fire right next to the tables. Not your average 'Pizza Hut/Simply Pizza' generic brand but proper food! Isabelle is a fantastically colourful character and her... More

It's worth the visit just to taste it. The friendly welcome from the proprietors, Isabelle, who speaks fluent English and Claude, who is the excellent chef, is also worth... More

Local family run restaurant using fresh ingredients and all cooked in the ovens visible to the customers. The proprietress is funny, friendly and helpful and very usefully speaks excellent English.

This is a really good restaurant but looks deceptively small from the street. They serve a good range of Italian food that is of very good quality and well priced. The chef cooks meals in front of you and it helps to create a really excellent atmosphere. We went twice whilst staying in the area - a second time simply... More
