After searching for +30 minutes for a nice restaurant to have dinner, decided to go to Lo Specchio. Everything was clearly made for lunch time (or the day before perhaps) and wasn't properly heated as some parts were warm and others were cold. We had lasagna and pasta.

great starter fig salad with gorgonzola, but the main pasta course at EUR 16 was very disappoiting - fat on the pasta! Waiter said: oh yes I don't like that either mais c est normal! other pasta course with lemon tasted artificial and was overcooked. Pity as the desert was great! maybe worth another try

I live in Toulouse for 8 Yeats agi and lo specchio id one of m'y favorite restaurant. The food is very good like in the trattoria on Italia. The italian is almost gogo toi and the décor is original and lounge. It is the fines italiano food in Toulouse.....thus reservation is required

Had a very nice meal here, one of our best in Toulouse. Central location with a few nice little wine bars nearby. Very well priced with starters and desserts a good bit cheaper than elsewhere. Had the mozarella and peach salad to start and it was really lovely. Would recommend.

A very good location and the best place in town to eat good pasta. It is a bit expensive but portions are well served and with very good quality. The linguini vongolese is very good!

The restaurant design is attractive and minimalist! The service is a bit slow but that's almost normal for restaurants in France! Now, the food: the quality is really good! We had one pasta with clams which was outstanding delicious the pasta with a ricotta and vegetable sauce was overcooked! This place is a bit pricy!

Lured by the outside menu in a correct italian, found the food ( vitello tonnato who had never met the tuna and overcooked gnocchi) absolutely not good. It is in addition fairly expensive for what they serve, 36€ with a glass of wine for what i mentioned above. To be carefully avoided....

Not directly in a busy street and easy to walk into, but I think that's just the nice thing about it. Really good food, I had a salad of fresh spinach and ragu Bolognese. Perfect ambiance for a dinner with 2!

A good location in the centre of Toulouse, though if you are a tourist you will need a map reference to find.My wife and I shared the antipasti which was generous, with a nice mixture of salad, meats and vegetables. We both ordered the cannelloni with ricotta. Superb presentation and taste. Fortunately the waiter was able to explain the menu... More

Food was very tasty, if not unique, and it is conveniently located to eat at while touring the center of Toulouse. We went there on a Saturday and it was mobbed, but they clearly had taken on too many tables. The wait staff were friendly, but we often went long (even by french standards) times between seeing or being able... More
