A very authentic Italian restaurant on the outskirts of Cours - Julien (Marseille city center). There are opportunities for both lunch and dinner. They have a nice backyard if you want to sit outside in the sun (afternoon). Not all the waiters speaks English. I was recommended a lovely pasta dish with tomato meat sauce. Lovely food - it felt...

My host recommended this restaurant so I was keen to try this out. The inside was full so I was told to go into the garden which was large and took advantage of the mild weather. The menu was on blackboards casually leaned against tables and chairs and led an informal dining atmosphere. Waiters were busy but accommodating. I ate... More

Great Italian food! I had dinner here and liked it so much I came back the next day for lunch. They have a beautiful garden which you can eat it as well. Everything was super fresh and delicious. Friendly staff!

A friend had booked us in to La Cantinetta for an early dinner and we were very grateful. Arriving early on a freezing January evening, there was no problem about being seated and within 15 minutes the restaurant was virtually full and buzzing with happy diners. The menu, on a board, is augmented with many specials, testing the memories of... More

A little bit of something for everyone! The food is great... pasta is home made, sea food is fresh! The meat is good quality! My favorite is the dessert part... the BEST is the chocolate cake... it just melts before you can chew it! :) Would also recommend the escalope( veal).

I was hesitant to go at first because I am tired of Italian food having eaten it so much, but now it is one of the places we go to in Marseille regularly. I don't know their whole menu because we usually share Burrata as an appetizer and then get the slow cooked meat for the main meal (carne del... More

I have been to this restaurant with a large group of friends. We all like the food, ordered a variety of dishes. Regualar portions, a bit pricey. Good options if you are vegetarian as they make risotto with vegetable stock and their panna cotta doe not contain gelatine but agar agar. They serve a nice burrata and, if you ask,... More

I ate here when I visited Marseille a few weeks ago. The food is delicious, well prepared and plentiful. My French is a little bit rusty (!) but one of the waitresses happily explained the menu to me in English. There's a lovely garden where you can eat, relax and enjoy the weather. Unpretentious and friendly with an emphasis on... More

A fantastic choice for Italian fare in Marseille - delicious pastas, amazing salumi, beautiful local seafood and they make a mean spritz! Dine solo at the bar, in the cozy dining room or in the lovely outdoor garden.
