We fell completely and utterly in love with this location, at the heart of the historical neighborhood in Bordeaux : rue de la Merci. We couldn’t be more grateful when we dropped our luggage off full of San Marzano tomato sauce in this spectacular 850 sqm vaulted place, with its balcony resembling an Italian theater. So proud to be preparing the pasta fresca in the home of Queen of vineyards, where the culinary scene is so rich. Benvenuti all’osteria eterna ragazzi, Benvenuti à Palatino.
RESERVATIONS OR WALK-INS
Why don’t you take reservations ?
We use amazing products that come directly from amazing producers located in Italy. We only serve fresh, 100% made-in-house food. And in order to stay in the spirit of the authentic Italian trattorias we love so much, we offer a menu that’s as affordable as possible. The reality is that latecomers and cancelled reservations represent an enormous cost for restaurants. In order to be able to offer quality products at affordable prices, we have to ensure that all our seats are filled. Either we accommodate a lot of people, or we make a lot of profit.
Plus, there’s advantages to not having to reserve 2 months in advance just to eat a pizza ! To put it simply : we understand that not taking reservations can be inconvenient for our diners, but we have to weigh this consideration against the fact that we’re trying to offer high value-for-money by squeezing our margins. To make things just a little bit easier, we’ve put in place a wait-list system whereby our hostess take your name and telephone number and call you when your table is ready.
