My wife had a delicious pizza 11 euros, I had a sumptuous spaghetti with lots of parsley and generous servings of shell fish. A generous portion for 15 euros. The service was probably the best I have encountered for this type of restaurant.

When in La Rochelle we eat in Teatro Bettini. Situates about 30m from the market in the centre of town, it is extremely popular, and when we left at 10pm, it was still full to near capacity. The menu is good, and the portions more than adequate. The service is very efficient and friendly. If summary - if you want... More

We were looking for a place to eat on our first night of 3 in La Rochelle and saw this one buzzing with customers. Happily a table was coming free in 5 minutes and we were not to be disappointed with our choice. We started with antipasti and the waiter advised us not to order 2 since they were large... More

Hadn't booked but were given a great table. Lots of staff were very busy but the right amount of attention given. Pasta was lovely but the pizzas even Bette!

Couldn't believe the size of the place but such an atmosphere. Aromas of wood burning ovens waft through from time to time. We were 3 Anglais, service by Philip was great, plenty of humour mingled with efficiency. We ate in silence - lingering over each mouthful, all of us appreciating every one of them. Portions were generous. No problem adapting... More

Very good italian/mediteranean restaurant in La Rochelle - we ordered pizzas - very large! but good. Also had Salmon and advocado salad - masses of salmon - a little too much. Recommend a visit - leave space for the puddings!

The pizza here is fabulous and it's kid friendly, plenty of seating. Only down side is that the service can a bit hit and miss. But u get used to that living in France.

We stayed in an apartment near this restaurant and one evening thought we'd try it. My husband had a pizza and I had spaghetti. They were very large portions, well tasty and excellent value for money. We enjoyed it so much we went three nights on the trot. It was very busy one night so they gave us a place... More

We were not that hungry. We had a short time before our flight. Four of us. We ordered a pizza Toscana to share and 2 portions of chips( they said they didn't have chips and offered pasta instead) and drinks. Only one of us was particularly hungry. A few mns later a male waiter came and barked at us that... More

We visited this restaurant twice on our weeks visit to La Rochelle. The food is top class, big portions of high class ingredients with a busy atmosphere and great service.
