The food served in this restaurant is not even close to real italian food. I've had the bella italia pizza which in essence is a piece of overpriced dough with tomato, paprika and ham on top. It tasted mediocre and I would definitely not reorder...More

Our main meal was quite nice, the service was good but the desert was awful. I ordered chocolate mousse and it was not edible, it was lumpy and dense. The waiter was aware that I didn’t like it because I only ate half a spoonful,...More

Totally great, will go there every time I visit Lille. The manager is the kindest and more service oriented person I've seen in Europe

We lucked out choosing this restaurant for our last night in Lille. There were many cafes with outdoor tables and after a quick look at the menu we were seated. I had Spaghetti Carbonara, which is one of my favourite Italian dishes and this one...More
