It’s authentic Neapolitan pizza and it is absolutely amazing! And cheap! The bar is huge, atmosphere is casual/charming and the staff is super friendly. Its a good sign when even the locals are willing to wait in line for the food. The line moves pretty quickly though and they brought out ciders to taste while we waited—a nice touch. Free photo booth in the basement was a hit with the kids. Don’t skip dessert!

This is a very popular Italian restaurant in the 2nd arrondissement. All the kitchen staff (and maybe too waiters) are from Italy. Pizzas are large, excellent and well priced, cooked in front of clients on the main floor. The eggplant parmesan was good but too oily for my tastes. Desserts too are good and big – the tiramisu was excellent and better than the enormous lemon tart. Vegetarians will find it easy to eat here - vegans, no. The restaurant is large, dark (windows are largely blocked by stylish shelves of liquors), and if you are at a big table and don’t fill it up, you may end up sharing it with others.

The restaurant is relatively noisy – this is not a place for an elegant, quiet and romantic evening out, but a fun place to go out with friends. They had quite good jazz (excellent pianist) the evening we were there. They do not accept reservations – when we arrived there were maybe 20 people in front of us waiting in a line in the street to get in, but we got through pretty fast (the restaurant is big). Friends told me that this is part of a chain of excellent similar restaurants, and that the one near Pigalle is nicer – on several floors with more light.

Anyway, I’d return - this is a nice place for an evening out with friends..

Recommend you to eat there. Their drinks are really good. Had back in the 90s. But the mango daiquiri wasn’t good. We had pizza and tiramisu and we’d give it a 4out if 5.

Firstly, get there early. The restaurant opens at 12:00 on a Sunday - not sure about the rest of the week. We were a small group of three and were queuing by 12:15

The front windows are rammed with hundreds of bottles of alcohol. A fantastic image.
As you enter and are met at reception, more bottles and the theme continues all the way to the basement seating area.
The place is full of life. Colourful, some good music - and to make the experience even better, the staff are brilliant.

Our server spoke French, English, Dutch and Italian..

If you are a small party 1/2/3 they will try and seat you together, other wise you may end up on one of the long tables. But you won't be dissapointed. The atmosphere and fun is just bursting all around.

The prices are less than expected - similar to a ( pizza hut in London), but the food is far more superior and exciting.
As you'd expect being surrounded by now thousands of bottles of spirits and beers - the busy bar will serve up anything you like.
The chilled house Rosé was just right.

Food : Superb Vegetarian selection :)
and the deserts were superior in size and quality..


If you're looking for a fun distraction and something very unusual, this is certainly the place to go.
Try the free photo booth by the toilets

We got in line before they opened and waited about 20 minutes. Good atmosphere and fun vibe. The truffle pizza was absolutely delicious . Definitely would go back for it again.
