Le Capitole of Le Mans !

Many restaurant visits all over the world, fun times and hope not to stop in the future as a retired guy ! This was a wonderful family memory and would like to update this older post for me and you on the experience, Le Mans is not far from my house so hardly ever need to eat there just making same day trips, However, this was different, in world famous Le Mans in the Sarthe department 72 of the Pays de la Loire region of my belle France.

The city of Le Mans is located at the confluence of the Sarthe and Huisne rivers. Former provincial capital of Maine and Perch from the 17C on, it saw the marriage of Geoffroy V of Anjou and Mathilde the Emperesse, daughter of the King of England, thus laying the foundations of the Plantagenet Empire, and the birth of Henry II. Old Mans, known as the Plantagenet City, is the historic district of the city. Le Mans is an ancient red city because of the particular color of its partly preserved Gallo-Roman enclosure dating back to the 3C!  The City of Le Mans on its history :https://www.lemans.fr/dynamique/bienvenue/lhistoire-du-mans/

The highway/motorway node, composed by the A 11 (Paris-Nantes), the A 81 (Le Mans-Rennes) and the A 28 (Rouen-Tours) which serves the city, encompasses three-fourths of Le Mans (Mancelle)  agglomeration. Estimated average time from Le Mans are 2h30 from Paris via the A11, 2 hours from Nantes by the A11 and from Rouen by the A28., at 1h40  from Rennes by the A81 and then by the RN157. 50 minutes from Tours on the A28. And 40 minutes from Alençon on the A28.All well connected and good roads we have tested!

And now let me tell you about the Restaurant Pizzeria Le Capitole !

The Pizzeria Le Capitole, 1 rue des Jacobins is located in the heart of the city, and close to the new theater, it offers hearty French/ Italian cuisine at more than just the right price! A varied menu for all tastes: Pizza, Salads, Grills, Pasta, Ice Cream and Desserts. In an elegant atmosphere, the colors are sober (black, gray, linen) warmed by a set of fixtures of originality.



We were walking by and took a look at its quant façade so we went in as usual and had a very good lunch!! Interesting and diverse menu, quick and friendly service. Very good pizzeria, pizzas are well stocked, friendly and smiling staff. I’d love to come back. The room is nice, the service is just as nice. Arrived without reservation, installed immediately. Price really reasonable given what you eat, food provided and vegetables that are tops! To know and come back !

  1. Le Mans is one of those interesting cities that is not yet overwhelmed by tourism; in high season it is a good alternative to the over visited places.
