Many people wonder why an Italian restaurant would have a French name. This is because the location wasn’t always a pizza place. The establishment named after a French symbol that roughly means “flower of the lily” used to be a cocktail lounge before it was bought by the family that now owns it. But even then, they decided not to change the name.
They didn’t immediately make it a pizza place either. Back then, the pizza used to be just an appetizer served in small portions to the customers, but they ended up liking them that the management decided to serve them in larger sizes. Through the years the recipe of a simple pizza with three toppings has stayed the same, just the way the patrons liked it. The family that owned it also maintained the traditional look of the building as much as possible.
