This is one of my fiance and my favorites! Good ambiance, really friendly staff, and one of the best pizzas you can get at Caen. I have nothing bad to say about this place!

we come there for many times and their calzone is really the best one i've ever ate and believe me , i ate a lot. the place is cosy, the staff is friendly and cary. It's better to reserve before coming or you may wait especially on week end evenings.

The best Calzone that i have ever eaten! I can not order anything else. So each time i have a lunch there, i take a very tasty Calzone. The service is friendly and enough fast. You should make a reservation in advance by phone.
