Selected this restaurant on the basis of the good reviews here. Very disappointed. Service was OK but the food was poor. Spag bol caked in congealed cheese and a small piece of overcooked veal. Also poor value at 15 euro for Spag bol. Would never return. Avoid

This is turning into my favorite restaurant in Strasbourg! My italian friends here in town introduced me to it and every time I i enjoy the experience- and its really the only italian restaurant in town they will visit. Located on a cobblestone street across from one of the restored churches, this small quaint little restaurant is warm and welcoming... More

This was truly a find. Authentic Italian food with a very friendly host and server. Food was great, service was fine and cost was fair. We ate outside the first night and had to sit inside the second evening as it was raining quite hard. Reservations suggested for weekends.

This is where you go when you need a change from the alsation cuisine. Fairly honest family Italian food, served well and packed with flavor. Hosts make it an enjoyable evening. We had veal and it was just right. Not a world changing experience yet relaxed,satisfying and worth every penny. I've eaten Italian food around the world and this was... More

Nice welcome by the owner but unfortunately overpriced food. We were not offered the card for drinks and of course we had to turn our eyes when we saw the bill. Also the food is nice (nothing special though) but definitely you pay more than its worth.

We wanted something different on our last night in Strasbourg, and sought out this tiny restaurant near l'Eglise Saint Thomas based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. My sister had Lasagne and I had Spaghetti Bolognese - both were delicious. The waiter was charming, as was the atmosphere - view of Saint Thomas and the carousel outside the window.... More

Had lunch outdoors at this tiny restaurant facing Saint Thomas cathedral. Shared an antipasto – not much variety and a little skimpy but good. My main was a well-prepared and tasty penne bolognaise and my partner ordered the garlic shrimp which was accompanied by a tomato/mushroom/lardon salad. Fish a little overcooked. Excellent tiramisu which we shared. Portions were adequate or... More

Warm welcome. They had run out of the dish of the day (we have a late dinner), but suggested an alternative. Food was very tasty and good portions. Tiramisu was do die for. Service with a smile and very attentive. They waited until we asked for the bill before bringing it. Nice and cosy surroundings and seems popular with the... More
