We enjoyed a warm welcome and an upstairs table for two. All the staff were really well made up for halloween which was fun. We both chose different fresh pasta and with a side salad. The salad came served in a Kilner Jar, which was a nice touch. The pasta was ok, but one of them was rather tasteless. The... More

Went here for dinner and the pizza was pretty average. Base sauce was pretty bland and the base itself was very floury. Half of my base was a bit burnt also. Toppings were plentiful and the proscuitto and parmesan were both very fresh. Overall atmosphere was nice, decent wine list.

Nice place, friendly staff, good food, not far from the cathedral. Excellent place for a quick bite or to linger over a digestif. Highly recommended.

This little gem of a restaurant was laterally just around the corner from our accommodation, and what a find it was. As with most small compact restaurants you tend to find they fill up quickly especially if they are anything to rate, and this one is, so much so that unbeknown to us several friends in the same business as...

We arrived in Chartres on Sunday when many restaurants are closed. Those that were open were unable to accommodate our party of 8 - except La Passacaille, where a quick table rearrangement did the trick. Food and wine were everything we expected, while service was fast and friendly and prices reasonable.

We were driving from Paris to Ambois, and stopped at Chartres to see the famous cathedral. After visiting, since it was early afternoon, we decided to stop for lunch at La Passacaille, which had outside seating, was on the way to the car park, and looked like it offered good pizzas. The service was very friendly and prompt, but unfortunately,... More

We'd had a gruelling drive from Dunkirk and after checking into our hotel it was getting late by the time we walked in to the square where there were tables set up outdoors and the maitre d' very obligingly found us a table (for four) and brought us drinks and menus. The food came from the nearby restaurant and was... More

Looks can be deceiving and despite its appearances, this place was a hidden gem. Much more spacious than it looks, with a second floor and outside space available. Lovely staff, and the food was so fresh and authentic, would go again in a heartbeat. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere too.

As we've searched good Italian restaurant in Chartres, we were expected that with such rating it will be at least good. We commanded three types of pasta with friends and they were with the same sauce base and far from Al dente. Mine was penne with pesto, however the pasta wasn't penne at all, and there were just one or... More
