I'm Italian and the pizza here is absolutely authentic! Big variety of pizzas, good price and very kind staff. Don't be deceived by the way it looks from the outside. The restaurant is very clean and the food is absolutely yummy and cheap compared to noumea 's prices.

Excellent Italian restaurant. The food was fresh and excellent quality. There is no beach side view but the fact that it is so popular is a great indication of value, friendliness and quality

This little Italian cafe is not very far from the Hilton but hidden in back streets, so perhaps not seen by tourists. The pizza is far better cooked than those being offered more prominently nearby and the broader menu offerings including salad are really good. Takeaway and delivery are also an option.

I didn't want to try this restaurant even though it was right next to our hotel (le lagoon ) because of how it looked from the outside..... When I did eventually give it a go I discovered great food, big portions, and awesome value for money. We had the spaghetti bolognaise and the tagliatelle cabornara (I couldn't finish mine it...

too bad the tips to the waitress, goes into a big jar. From experience this is a major FAIL. Anyway, I loved the Pizza, the beer, the wine and the people, enough to go back for seconds.

OK so Noumea is very expensive to eat out. This place is mid range for the area but it is what would be considered a "cheap eat" Italian in Australia when it comes to the food. You won't rave about the food but at least you won't faint when you get the bill. As a bonus the pasta dishes are... More

We ordered pizza here to Take-away, was over cooked but not burnt. Not much topping either. Overall was not as good as the previous reviews stated. Went tp pizza & pasta about 5 mins away and was much better.

The pizzas are nice but not good value. It is a casual eatery but charges as if it was fine dining. The pasta was very ordinary. I could have made a better dish myself.

As Noumea is very expensive, if you are sick of going out and paying a fortune all the time, this is a good place to visit as mains are not overly expensive. Doesn't look great from the outside but the pizza was really good, I was pretty impressed with it, thin based and generally yum. A couple of members of... More
