We had to wait quite a long time before getting some attention. The owner was quite grumpy even though the waitress was much nicer to us. We barely took a main dish and half a bottle of wine as the menu was lacking inspiration. Not...More

The restaurant only had about 12 tables. Service was attentive and personal. The food was not disappointing.

We couldn’t get reservations in the gourmet restaurant down the street, so we decided to give it a try, much to my son’s relief. There was a mix of French speakers and some tourists. The pizza was good and the local wines are worth trying....More
