An Italian restaurant in Strasbourg: La Vetta

La Vetta is a family-run Italian ristorante with an intimate atmosphere, located in a small side street near Strasbourg Cathedral.

Filomena greets her customers like old friends, and takes care of every table with enthusiasm and generosity. Her husband Antonio – bandana tied around his head – works hard in the kitchen with his sous-chef. Italian pop streams out of the speakers, immediately immersing you in the feeling of Neapolitan dolce vita.


The minimal menu is completed by a board of seasonal specials (like truffles, mozzarella di bufala, linguine alle vongole…). The selection is wide enough to satisfy every taste and preference.

For instance, you could start with a glass of prosecco or spritz accompanied with a Parma ham bruschetta, before continuing with a pizza La Vetta (with Parma ham and arugula) or a meat dish (like saltimbocca alla Romana), fish (grilled squid), pasta, risotto, or a vegetarian dish, and end on a sweet note with a tiramisú.

The dishes are house-made, tasty, well-balanced, and cooked to perfection. In the course of a meal, you’re transported to the heart of Italy. Don’t forget to order the tiramisú, which is among our top 3 best tiramisús in town.


La Vetta is one of our favorite places in Strasbourg. One of the reasons for that is the fact that we had our very first date here, when an unexpected serenade from a mandolin player made us feel like we were in Lady and the Tramp. O sole mio… !

Reservations recommended.

An Italian restaurant in Strasbourg: Il Felice

Il Felice, the new Italian restaurant in rue des Tonneliers, is a joy to the senses. Sit down beneath a lush canopy of greenery to savor their generous Italian cuisine with a twist. The interior is classy and modern without ever being austere.

The menu (consisting of antipasti, classic or gluten free pasta, secondi piatti, pizza and dolci) is small but very well rounded, thanks to the addition of seasonal specials on the blackboard. Those who love cocktails, prosecco, moscato, and italian wines and spirits will be able to indulge here, all in moderation.

We particularly enjoyed the lovely floral touch of the Saint-Germain spritz with a bucatini straw, the seasonal pumpkin pizza with walnuts, chestnuts, arugula and shaved parmesan, the Burrata d’Amore pizza (yellow tomatoes, datterini, pesto, preserved red tomatoes, burrata, slivered almonds) and their kids’ menu (all main courses are available in half portions at half price).

A pizza restaurant in Strasbourg: L’Oro di Napoli

It’s far too tempting to devour the pizza, still piping hot from the oven, instead of patiently snapping a picture . One of our top 3 best pizzas in Strasbourg!

An Italian restaurant in Strasbourg: Le Bastardo

With its welcoming staff, inventive interior (with a map of Italy chiseled into one of the walls) and generous portions, Bastardo specializes in modern and flavorsome Italian cuisine focused on quality ingredients. They change the menu following what’s in season.

We very much enjoyed the lobster bisque risotto, bucatini al ragú, raspberry mojito, homemade bread with caramelized hazelnuts (still warm from the oven), and the street art murals leading down to the restrooms.

An Italian restaurant in Strasbourg: Pop & Lino

Tucked away in a little side street and behind a wall of aperitivi, this colorful Italian restaurant offers a “pizza e pasta” concept with a wide array of cocktails and a shaded courtyard with an olive tree at the center. We opted for their meta-meta menu – half pizza, half caprese salad.
