Always a pleasure to eat in this small family run Italian restaurant.I have never been disappointed every time the freshly cooked small menu delivers all the right authentic flavours from across the border! I recommend the seafood pasta. Never a fault from me!!

The food was very good served by a man who's constant sour look made you believe he wished he was elsewhere. He controlled the front of house as his domain. Everything seems to be a chore, however, at least he had character not found in many restaurants in Cannes. He had difficulty in keeping up with things at times whilst... More
