We were roaming around Poitiers, taking in the sights and smells and sounds. . . At a certain hour, we start looking for a dinner spot. This time, too late we realized that it was a Saturday night and a festival was underway, making it difficult to get in anywhere without a reservation. Le Magenta was very welcoming, although, watching the waiter running around like a maniac, made us quite tolerant of the service, which, given the circumstances, wasn't all that bad. We got served water and wine rather quickly. The pizza was a thin-crusted pizza, and they even had hot pepper flakes in oil, a rarity outside of certain regions of Italy. It was warm inside -- from the brick oven, we got satiated, and all was good!

Saw on here that it is Gluten free and went there to ask to be given the usual French attitude of NON!
Not gluten free and poor staff. If you sit outside expect inconsiderate people to smoke beside you and all over your children. Seriously what century are they in!

The service was very good; the waitress was very friendly and the food was fresh. The pizza base was lovely and thin. Would certainly recommend.

We had an early meal here with our toddler one Friday evening. Absolutely delicious pizzas - everything tasted so fresh, and the combinations of flavours were amazing - I had a special "orientale" loaded with chorizo and merguez, and my husband had a delicious pesto pizza. Nice kids' menu too, and it was cool sitting outside on the pavement watching the world go about the beginning of their weekend. Service was perfect, prompt and friendly.
