The first night we tried to eat here it was absolutely heaving and we had no reservation so reserved for later in the week.

The lady who works front of house is superb - very friendly and accommodating. The man who works there, possibly the owner, is too busy showing off to the customers (a different silly hat every time he comes out to the restaurant, putting on loud music, slapping his regulars on the back) to be particularly effective.

The starters were not good - the calamari was cooked from frozen and the garlic bread was just a burnt baguette smothered in raw minced garlic.

The mains and desserts on the other hand were really rather good. The pizzas were delicious - there was an extensive pizza menu with tomato, white and pesto bases. The merguez pizza was exceptionally good. The carbonara was good too although it was served with a raw egg in the middle. Yes I know carbonara sauce contains egg, I've just never seen it plopped in the middle of the pasta like on steak tartare. And not ideal for the five year old who was eating it either.

We shared a delicious desert with speculoos, whipped cream and crushed biscuits.

The bill came to just over €100, about average for Le Touquet. The restaurant was busy when we were there and lots of locals came in for take aways (or possibly to be entertained by the owner) but it was a bank holiday weekend so I am not sure how popular it is out of season.

I would recommend the food but getting it to take away. And forget the starters. I certainly will do both next time.

We ordered a spaghetti bolognese and when it arrived it was a strange mix of spaghetti and penne and in a sauce with no meat in it (?). Bizarre we thought. My husband's spaghetti fruits de mer was a pile of soggy frozen seafood swamped in cream sauce. As we were leaving I saw another client being served a penne bolognese full of meat - just like I thought mine would have been! Very disappointing. Although we live here and speak french, I really believe they heard the english accent, assumed we were tourists and treated us as diners who didnt matter. Dont go there if you want good authentic Italian food.

The food is average, the service typically casually indifferent, and the cadre boring, but people seem to like it as it is invariably full...perhaps just because it is summer time

A nice Italian restaurant, just off the main drag through town.
When we arrived (without booking) the place was quite empty so a table would be easy to find...we should have booked because the place filled up very quickly. Anyway, the waitress/owner managed to fit us in....just!
As Italian food goes, it was good value and well presented.
Worth a visit.

We were made to feel very welcome and enjoyed a fabulous Italian meal, with drinks, wine and a fantastic atmosphere.
