We liked this place, so dined here twice. A very good mid-range restaurant; food was good quality and a reasonable price; quite extensive menu. Dining was either in a tree-covered courtyard (al fresco) or inside, or half-way (under a canopy with wind-break). Service was also very good.

We have been coming here for 12 years and still does some of the best pizzas. It is exceptionally busy but a great atmosphere particularly when sat outside. Remember you only need the petite pizza!

France is an extremely difficult country to find any vegetarian cuisine but we came across this gem of a restaurant driving back to from a visit to Isles Porquellos and we were delighted to see plenty of vegetarian options, the food was the best I've ever tasted. I have a pasta dish with apple and a caramelised onion sauce, a... More

Beside a couple of "Take Away Pizza" shops, this is a calm and cosy Pizzeria with a quite nice amosphere. The first room reminds at first on a train station`s waiting hall, but entering the second room, the place is accurate decorated with a huge open fire place and gives a sort of Italian spirit. Prices are moderate. Seats and... More
