It is a popular place with the locals, but they only have two waitresses for the whole restaurant! Be Patient! Our food took forever to come but the Tiramisu au saumon fumé was amazing. I had the Pappardelle pimentée, jambon cru, feta et tomates confites which was very good my husband had the Pappardelle à la crème de gorgonzola et... More

We came here twice - once because we stumbled on this restaurant and the second time deliberately. The first time it was just my husband, myself and a friend and the second time we came as a group of 10 friends, one of whom was disabled. We booked the restaurant for 19.00 (when it opens for evening service), but it... More

The food is quite good and the chocolate raviolis dessert is really worth trying, although portion sizes are small. However, we were not made to feel welcome by the serving staff who were both clueless about the dishes on the menu and lacking the basics of respectful serving. The restaurant owner is equally disrespectful and only managed to smile once... More

I was just there with my friends. We were expecting a fantastic dinner, since their speciality is pasta, and since that was we ordered. But we were surprised by a small dish of pasta that could be easily be made at home. In my case, I ordered an entreé of salad wich was ok. Besides that, after ordering the bill... More

Arrived in Lyon tired and very hungry. Out of the dozens of restaurants in the area we close this one. We were their first customers for the evening but the place soon filled up. I had the Salmon Tiramasu as a starter just to see what it was, delicious. Then I settled for a more or less standard Spaghetti Bolaganaise... More

I have been to this restaurant twice, last year and last weekend. Some restaurant owners feel that because they have a restaurant in rue Merciere, they can treat people like s**t. The lady running the restaurant served us both times (50-year-old looking lady with blue glasses). The place was half full. We asked for a 6 people table, and she... More

We went for a smalll family reunion of sorts (brothers in two continents, couple of years since last time met, just looking for a more or less quiet place where we could grab something to eat while we catch up in.

We visited Lyon for New Year's Eve and although we hoped to avoid the touristic restaurants of Rue de Merciere , La Route des pates was one of the few restaurants that were open on the 1st Jan, so we tried our luck. Unfortunately we were unlucky... We ordered a velouté, they didn't have it. We asked for a salad,... More

Stumbled upon this picturesque restaurant when out in Lyon with friends. It's very difficult to make a restaurant choice down this cute road as everything looks so great, but this place pulled us in with their amazing choice of pasta as well as their reasonable pricing. The service was great (waiters spoke English) which helped with my incredibly pigeon French.... More
