We started with antipasto and followed with escalope de veau. Don't go if you are very hungry as the food is light, perfect for a hot sunny day. It's very salad based, if it isn't a salad it's served with salad. Good quality ingredients. Quite expensive for lunchtime France, the wine particularly.

The food is DELICIOUS! I am almost ashamed to admit that,during our six day visit to Chinon we ate here on four different days. The pizzas,the cannoli the wine,simple inexpensive,perfection with a smile.
Being an American, They were nice enough about seating us a bit early,with a bit of well intended fun poked at us.
We will certainly spend a few meals here next year when we return to Chinon!

So using trip advisor, this was the place we picked, but they also said there was a wood fired pizza place...and i got mixed up. I ask the waiter before we sat if they were wood fired. He said no...i said thanks and walked on. Then using my phone we realized the wood place was closed, and returned about 5 minutes later. Waiter #2 started to seat us outside, waiter #1 comes up and says that table is reserved. #2 heads for another table...also reserved #1 says. We say "ok, we can sit inside" which is basically empty at which point the waiter #1 claims all tables are reserved for the whole night. We spent 2 weeks in france and only encountered this BS twice.

generally the french have learned that tourism is a good thing and they are much nicer than 20 years ago. we ate across the street and saw that the waiter was clearly just being a jerk.

figured this was the best thing i could do.

We went there for dinner and were treated very poorly by the manager/head waiter (not the pizzaiolo/owner). Let me specify that we are fluent in French and therefore this could not be blamed on us being "tourists" asking for an English menu. We contemplated walking away but most terrasses in the city center were full on that nice summer evening. Anyway, we ordered. The antipasti were soaked in fatty oil, the pizza was good, the homemade pasta below average. Service was awful throughout dinner. Unresponsive, rude, yet the manager/head waiter seemed much more friendly with regular clients or friends of his. I'd therefore recommend that tourists do not bother spending money in this restaurant which seems to obviously do well enough with locals.

Great pizzas for our hungry boys. Delicious specials. Lovely staff. Enough shade to eat outside and watch the world go by.
