My wife and I found this to be a very nice experience. Food was fantastic. We had a pizza and pasta, both very generous serves, with a nice sangiovese. Excellent value and very friendly service. Would happily recommend to anyone looking for Italian in Bordeaux.

Visited the restaurant following good reviews on TA. Fairly basic decor and vitually empty when we first arrived, although the waitress had to check she could fit us in! The reason why became apparent later, not because it was fully booked, but as they were understaffed - just one front of house and one chef! This resulted in long waits... More

Best Italian ive ever had. Caprise salad with foccaccia to start which was simply Devine, then a calzone for my partner which was amazing and he couldn't finish, I had the spaghetti prawns. It was so tasty with bags of flavour, the waitress was friendly and very nice. It's such a shame this place isn't more busy, when it deserves... More

I just read the previous reviews , and I just can't formulate things better. We've had lunch and dinner many times in Italy itself, but when leaving I told the chef that, to my knowledge, he ran the best Italian restaurant in the whole of Western Europe. Highly recommended!

Weve just come back from a long weekend in Bordeaux and I must say, overall, the quality of the food was impressive. Unfortunately we couldn’t get into Chez Gabriel as it was fully booked both nights so we decided to look at places on tripadvisors that were small, family orientated and simple food cooked with a lot of love. When... More

Since we have been disappointed with the french restaurants in Bordeaux, I decided to check other people's experience and where they enjoyed eating the most. I will have to say that "Thank You, Tripadvisor reviewers because i decided to take the suggestions of eating at the place. Their antipasti was so fresh that we consumed it in 5 minutes. The...

Wandered into Positano keen to find something a bit spicier than the average French fare and looking for a pasta hit. The ambience did have us a little worried - felt more like a half-hearted cafe than a restaurant and they clearly hadn't sunk a lot of money into the decorations. Well - it was a huge case of don't... More
