We found that during the Christmas holidays it was hard to find a place to dine in Arras that wasn't overly touristy. Found Le Petit Theatre on Tripadvisor, and since we are always Italian fans (and had had a lot of good French food during the trip), we came here. What a nice, local, and delightful surprise. It is clearly a small, family-type place with one waitress and many tables, but she is incredible and the kitchen made up for any delays that came because they were FULL with local diners all evening.
We were in different moods, so one of us dined "French," with Maroilles croquettes and a perfectly made onglet a l'echalottes (steak frites).The other had a wonderful small Printanière salad with many goodies and spaghetti au Chef. All were great, except the pasta which met French standards (overcooked pasta and a bit too creamy sauce), but wouldn't stack up in Italy. Overall, though, it was delicious and charming.
This is not haute cuisine, but for a relaxed and completely enjoyable meal in Arras with lots of locals and terrific service, this is the place!

As the name suggests this restaurant is located very close to the theatre. It is a family run restaurant with an Italian theme to the food. The menu has an option of pasta or "Fresh pasta" judging by our experience the fresh pasta is well worth paying a little more for. We both had a Pappardelle dish which was very good. The service was very pleasant, it was reasonably priced, definitely recommended.

Only a small restaurant but the food was plentiful and tasted good. Does get quite busy so may be wise to book ahead. Convenient for the centre of Arras.

what a wonderful meal , we looked all around the main squares to find some where to eat that provided for a meat eater and a vegi,most places were a bit fancy with sauces etc, but the petit theatre was superb ,starters of tomato salad with goats cheese in a crunchy coating, followed by a fantastic steak and my wife had a four cheese pizza, all of this with fresh bread rolls butter and the most amazing cotes de gascogne (domaine uby )white wine.the owner and his staff were wonderful, price40 euros, needless to say we did eat here again

As we were very hungry we could not find a restaurant with any space, as this place was empty we thought we would take a chance, moments later this restaurant was full.
The food came quickly was good quality at a fair price, the service was very good, especially as we don't speak French
