From outside is not so appealing, but as you step in, you will find a worm atmosphere, space, comfortable chairs. Very nice of them to hire staff that speaks other languages than french. Beautiful plate presentation, tasty food, and quite fast service, although the restaurant was full. Well done, guys. Thank you.

We did not what to expect expect but this is more than a typical tourist-harbour-front restaurant. Great food, great wines (we chose the ones from the district) and great staff.

We came here to have lunch. I think the mini pizza idea is fantastic! The pasta my partner had looked quite amazing as well. Definitely on the list to return for dinner. The ambiance and outdoor seating is great. They made it warm when the winds crept up and there are no complaints! Great job.

I had dinner 2 times. First time, excellent "gnocchi" hand made, with some original dressing ("gnocchi with dried tomatos and ricotta" you cannot find in Italy - but they are excellent) Second time, excellent pizza, cooked with wood fire, not over-stuffed as usual in France. Funny enough... in this are you find many restaurant with French name and Italian cooks...... More

The ambiance of the restaurant is quite good. In La Ciotat there are a lot of crappy restaurants near the (old) harbor. This is not one of them! We had pizza and it was very good (compared to others), it was no problem to order them without cheese. But still it is not "high grade" as you would expect comparing... More
