This restaurant is near the Ibis Alesia Hotel in the Rue des Plantes (cross over the main Rue D'Alesia and its on the right hand side) and I thought I'd give it a try. I was a little concerned, having read the mixed reviews, that it might be terrible but I was pleasantly surprised! The lady owner (I assume) gave... More

Visited the restaurant on the off chance as it looked like a nice traditional Italian. Surprised to read the previous mixed reviews. I would say we are reasonably choosy, and are certainly the first to criticise poor service, and although the owner began quieter, she was pleasant enough, and was actually joking and laughing through most of the service. We... More

Visited on a Friday evening - we were the only ones in at first, but it filled up gradually. Had a really nice prawn salad for starters - the leaves were very fresh and good selection. Had a tortellini for the main, which again was very nice. OH had lasagne which he enjoyed too. Service was good.

The fish we orderd was dry and had hair in it. And the meat was not good either. The only good thing was that we didnt have to pay for the fish.

We tried to be friendly but she didn't respond and never spoke to us once. Pizzas were just banged down in... More

It is simply clear that the female owner of the restaurant has problems. She was extremely rude to the tourist tables (including ours), never smiled and in fact, gave us a sigh when we ordered more food! We were very polite and my family tried our best to speak in french as well to respect her and her restaurant. This... More

This place looks like a typical bistro, but what a disappointment. We skipped starters as we weren't particularly hungry. The lasagna which my partner ordered was the worst he has ever eaten. There was no bechamel sauce and the topping consisted of a very thick layer of mozzarella (!?) cheese. His ordered side salad (4 euros) consisted of a couple... More

Went here on our first night in Paris in June 2010 as we were in a hurry. Food was great but the service was very poor. Tried my best to order in French and was very polite but despite this we ignored most of the time and the waiting staff didn't even offer us another drink so we paid our... More
