We happened upon La Familia by chance last week and were struck by the warmth of the welcome and the welcome warmth from the feu de bois oven as we went into the restaurant. That’s what you need on a chilly damp November day! 

The menu is on a blackboard and has a wide range of pizzas (they looked good), fresh pastas and salads.  We opted for the tatin des legumes which was delicious and at 10€, good value.

I think this is what the French call ‘une tres bonne addresse’ because shortly after midday, the restaurant was pretty full.

You can find it at 20 rue Boulegon (04 42 23 51 58).  It’s open daily, lunch time and evening, except Sundays and Monday lunchtimes.

Other culinary inspiration can be gleaned from the November issue of A Table from La Provence.  It has restaurant recommendations from across the region and ideas on cooking food from the markets this month.  2.80€ from kiosks.

Thank goodness the rain has finally stopped.  But pity the people/buildings in Venice where there has been a deluge and high tides.  Click for photos:
