We have been dining out for 30 years in Aix and this is the best Italian food we know. The food itself is just great (dont expect pissas but authentic Sicilian food), the service by the family who owns the restaurant is very italian style....More

OK, as you ill have read from the other reviews, the owner manages to charm plenty of customers but really his bogus bonhomie is a cover for the shortcomings of the kitchen. We were seduced by the quaint appearance of the restaurant from the exterior...More

Been there many times since August 2015 and it never failed to disappoint. Pasta from 12€-17€, lots of choice, very good desserts and pizza. Service is usually quite fast and staff is very nice. Everything is homemade including the bread.

What could have been a delicious salad was ruined by an exceptionally strong vinegrette. A risotto with parmesan was again ruined by too much of the cheese, it is very salty, thus destroying the red wine and delicate flavour of the rissoto. We ordered Chianti...More

A very intimate, traditional italian meal. Served by Nino himself - what an utter charmer and delight. We loved every morsel of it. Octopus salad was yummy. Tomato prosciutto spinach salad with gorgonzola dressing to die for. Love this place. A MUST DO
