We opened this restaurant in July 1984, which met an immediate success thanks to the combination, truly daring back then, of an innovative architecture and an original catering concept with a specific home-made fresh pasta theme.
The pasta "fatta in casa" and the design: the respect of this identity principle and the constant concern to maintain the best « good value for money », allowed us to make durable this recognized concept, in Marseille, as a true institution.
The decor, several times discreetly updated, has remained modern, but simple and welcoming, like the food we serve.
We strive to offer our clients an attentive, efficient and relaxed service.
Our restaurant has a capacity of 132 seats, spread throughout a large main room on the ground floor, a terrace under a heated porch and a mezzanine.
Ideally located in a main Marseille shopping center, in the heart of the safe antique shops’ neighbourhood, only hundreds of meters away from the old port and from lively touristic areas, our restaurant is surrounded by quality hotels, shops and parkings.
