It is worth looking for this restaurant for the quality of the food. Family run and charming, vast portions and very reasonable prices . Tucked away near the railway station. Relaxed and welcoming . I had the braciola which was a mixture of meat dishes coked together with cheese and spaghetti , enough for several people. My wife's steak filled... More

Six of us ate here on a Sunday evening (having struggled to find anything open outside the city). We had telephoned to book a table but I think we might have been accommodated without having done so. We had 5 pizzas and a pasta dish. I'll be honest - the pizzas were average, but I wish I'd had the lasagna,... More

The service was poor and slow. No one arrived with the drinks we ordered. After more than 90 minutes waiting for the food three half cooked pizzas arrived. It was clear that the restaurant was unable to deal with the customer volume. As a regular visitor to Carcassonne I will not be going back to this place.

Near the Gare in Cascassonne, beside the Canal du Midi, what a find. Having missed a train & booked into the Bristol Hotel, I saw the welcoming lights of this little place. I went in really early, starving, the first diner in. The couple running the place were charming & the pizza was fabulous - huge slices of Parma ham... More

Small restaurant. Very plain but also very busy which was a good sign. The Bragioli stuffed with duck was to die for and the pizza very light and tasty.

This was recommended by Séverine at Hotel Astoria (see my review) as being very good and close by. Spot on. Naturally a predominantly Italian menu, the food and service are excellent. It's very small and popular so either book a table or, like us, arrive early - before 7.45pm. At the end of our 6 week European trip this place was... More

When first you see this place down next to the canal it looks run down and small. Well I suppose it is but the food is utterly wonderful. Good service and a good choice of food - Bistecca alla Fiorentina but it is too big for me so I had a pizza and my wife had veal. Both were divine.... More

Excellent place with excellent service always with a smile. Pizza really good but the best by far was the home maid tiramissu.

for somewhere to eat (long day traveling) not many restaurants open around the hotel so, very happily, took a breezy table outside. Service was first class and friendly and matched by the food - I'd recommend the beef carpaccio.

Popped into this restaurant by chance. Not expecting too much and ordered fruits de mere spaghetti. Owner also waiter pointed out this was usually by order in advance and it was rather late in the evening. However he could see my disappointment and cook up the most amazing shellfish spaghetti I have ever had in my life, it was awesome... More
