This restaurant is a true experience! They always serve different daily pasta (and if you are lucky enough to be there on truffle or mushroom days, you MUST have that!), which makes you always want to go there just to see what they're coming up with next. Carefully though, the size of their desserts is impressive, so...you might have to... More

We were lucky to find a place to seat at Friday evening. The hospitality and the food was the best. We will come back for sure.

Had dinner here after a day at the Christmas Markets, having found out about it here on TripAdvisor. The food was lovely and very reasonably priced. For the hour & 45 minutes, we were in there people didn't stop coming in - definitely a sign for a great restaurant!

Went here for dinner and had a good night.food was very good.What the restaurant missed a little was atmosphere but perhaps it was so because the place was not full.

Glad to have found a table at this bustling restaurant. Food was pleasant with great portion sizes. Pizzas look like their specialty although the pasta was lovely. Had the mozzarella to start which was burnt and greasy, but didn't complain so was a little apprehensive about the main. It did get much better after the starter and overall was a... More

We just emerged from the Christmas market, feeling hungry I loaded the tripadviser app and entered restaurants near me. Then redefined Italian, what a find, just a few steps away. The atmosphere and food just exceptional, can say no more, a must to visit.

In Lille for a weekend trip and this restaurant is very close to our hotel so popped by just before it opened last night, from the limited French we can understand we seemed to be very lucky to get a table, it was full an hour after we arrived and seems very popular with the locals! Our food was excellent,... More

This is an extremely popular place especially for lunch when it is often packed out. We went in the evening and having seen the rave reviews our expectations were a little too high. My partner had a pizza which was good but certainly not amazing, while I had the veal which I expected would be good in an Italian restaurant.... More

Great pizza, friendly staff. Not easy to find such great pizza outside Italy. Desserts are quite good too (tiramisu a great choice)

Thank Leonardo Z
