The Little Comptoir is a very busy Italian restaurant in the heart of historic Angouleme. The interior is immaculately clean - a mixture of historic architecture and modern chic, although the few outside tables are squashed on the side of a pedestrian pathway, opposite a Kebab shop.
Prices are higher than the many french restaurants around. My salmon salad at E16 was enormous, with 4 salmon steaks, although our pizzas (E16 & E14) were decidedly average, with the base somewhat undercooked.
The staff were efficient but seemed ambivalent about serving English tourists alongside their chic regulars, so I would not recommend.

It was very busy when we went here for dinner and service was slow. After very generous shared antipasti we order truffle risotto and beef carpaccio. The beef in the latter was disappointing and the risotto order was delivered as truffle linguini, which however was really delicious

We went to the little comptoir with a few friends for a birthday.
Seating was very tight and not enough space to properly enjoy the dinner.
Food was very basic but ok.
Waiter was totally unable to assist us with choice of food and wine and had obviously a very little knowledge of the menu.

Upon leaving we heard the staff complaining about us, saying we were “hasslers”.
The owners who were at the cashier have been advised of the incident while we paid and instead of making apologies they started arguing with us loudly.

The owner was totally disrespectful and as he could not justify himself, he just left the scene to one his employee to finalise the payment receipts.

Absolute disgrace for the profession...

Like many places around here, black truffle is a local favourite.
Pizzas are nice enough, a notch above touristic blandness.
Friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere.
