A wonderful Italian gem near Part-Dieu, Italia e Sapore pleases its patrons with freshly baked pizzas, wines and meat platters.

A wine list is available to pair with the Italian goodies.

Set menus are available here as well.
Pizzeria Il Fico gives its patrons a warm Italian welcome, with the aroma of freshly baked pizza from their wood-fired oven. Chef Blerimo and Aurelie bring their pizza-crafting experience to Lyon from the land of pizza itself, where they worked for several years. Regulars adore the homemade dough that delivers a beautiful thin-crust pizza with the most gloriously fresh toppings. Favorites include the simple yet delicious Margherita and the Focaccia & Pachino Bufala Basilico. Finish off with your exceptional pizza experience with heavenly Italian desserts.
This counter café is in a modern grocer's shop, which is a rather novel idea. If you want to sample your favorite pasta on the premises (lunch times only), then this is the perfect place to do so. It sells some of the best food in the whole city. If you need convincing, why not try the ravioli aux crèpes, the cold meats from Rome or the fresh pasta with grilled aubergine, dried tomatoes and ham. Because everything on offer is so good, the people of Lyon vote with their feet and pack the restaurant out every lunchtime.
