Very nice pastas dishes (I had the pasta with Gorgonzola and speck, I can recommend it) excellent Sicilian wine, and a very good dessert (mousse de Nutella). Enjoyable atmosphere and a friendly host. Very reasonable price.

What a fantastic meal! Highly recommend the Linguine with Aubergine and Parmesan, and the Truffle pasta! 😍 the buffalo mozzarella starter also is very good. Can't recommend this place enough!

We had a good meal here last night. It's located in a steep little back street which was bustling with drinkers and diners. The inside is small and looks pretty ordinary but we ate outside (good people watching but also means proximity to smokers which my 3 kids always complain about).

Highly recommended place) both pasta dishes were amazingly prepared: mix from French sauce & Italian products. Pasta with Gorgonzola and speck; pasta with cream of white mushrooms! Desserts were perfect also. Nice addition was Italian white wine with gentle apricot taste. Reasonable pricing, friendly host!

We went to Via Pila for an evening meal when on holiday in Montpellier. It was a Monday, so not many places were open, but Via Pila was - and we had such an amazing meal! We will definitely be returning! We sat inside, as we were told we needed a reservation for outside, and our table was very nice... More

Where do I start. The vegetarian antipasti starter for two was like heaven in your mouth. Huge ball of mozzarella too. Would say it was the best starter of my life. Then the main, again such a large portion of pasta and an explosion of flavours. Served with red wine this meal was a real treat and not at all... More
