This is an extremely popular place especially for lunch when it is often packed out. We went in the evening and having seen the rave reviews our expectations were a little too high. My partner had a pizza which was good but certainly not amazing, while I had the veal which I expected would be good in an Italian restaurant.... More

Great pizza, friendly staff. Not easy to find such great pizza outside Italy. Desserts are quite good too (tiramisu a great choice)

We've been here wt my hubby couple of times. The place is very simple. Pizza is not bad. Pasta isn't that good. Good for a simple, fun meal, but nothing special. Nevertheless the service is sweet. The ranking is exaggerated, it's not a 9th restaurant in Lille!

The service here is plentiful and helpful. We had no reservation yet they tried hard to get us in on a busy night. The menu covers most things Italian and the food was good. Pizzas excellent and pasta specials large and tasty. Meal for 4 including drinks €100 which is good. Recommend it.

We tried this place after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived just after opening and the restaurant was already very busy but managed to get a table. The water brought us both a French menu, but then a waitress swapped these immediately with an English menu as she realised our nationality. I didn't think there was a wide range... More

Had pre-booked but arrived late due to train delays. Had emailed ahead and table had been kept free despite the restaurant being full. Warmly welcomed still and as we were now in a rush the service was prompt, swift and courteous. Centrally located close to the Old Town and shops wish we'd had more time to enjoy the food and...

We had a table reserved on a Saturday evening and were thankful the boss held it for us when were slightly delayed - even though the place was jammed. Received a truly warm welcome and enjoyed good service and food - very nice pizza.

Visited whilst over for the football with my friend & reserved a table for lunch. The owner was very welcoming when I arrived & the food was great. We had a large bruschetta to start which was a meal in itself & delicious. I then had the Gialli speciality penne which was very tasty & a lot of it. Overall... More

In Lille for the football I had checked Tripadvisor for recommended restaurants. We didn't want to go far away from the metro as one of our party was on crutches, so we chose this. It turned out to be a good choice, it's lively, friendly and the food is good. Two of us chose veal, one had the saltimbocca and... More
