We had no reservation but were made to feel very welcome despite our terrible French. The atmosphere is intimate and yes it is quite dark, but that just adds to the ambience. I don't eat meat, and while I would struggle to find something at the more traditional paris cafes, I had no trouble here. They had a delicious vegetable... More

This restaurant offers good Sicilian food though the setting is rather gloomy. Service is very slow if you're sitting outside. The most disappointing aspect is that they do not respect your reservation even if they know you.

After searching through Trip Advisor for what felt like hours to find somewhere special we finally picked Lancetta Ristorante. We hadn't made a reservation but we were made to feel very welcome on arrival and despite them being fully booked they let us have a table for an hour and which suited us fine. Fantastic bottle of white and friendly... More

This quaint restaurant in a side street in the Saint Germain district ...offers fabulous Italian food with the Italian/ french owners on hand to make you feel comfortable. We ordered pasta...and it was authentic and delicious!! Definitely worth booking a table if you are in the area.

We always visit this restaurant when we are in Paris as the food is consistently good but on this visit the service was appalling. The waitress got everything wrong and forgot two of our main courses. Although she was friendly and helpful one of us ended up not bothering with their main course when it didn't come as everyone else... More

Had an incredible traditional Italian meal at this small bistro. All food was very fresh and crafted by caring hands. Flavors were well balanced; complex but not overdone. Pasta was perfect. Great service. Profiteroles well worth sharing!

Food was just OK -- but I admit I wasn't that hungry when we arrived. Salad was straightforward with a rather simple dressing and I ordered Linguine alle vongole -- which wasn't very adventurous I admit but was consistent with the same dish from a thousand other restaurants in Europe and N. America. A sipmle fruit salad to finish off...... More

This little Italian restaurant is an absolute cracker. The service was warm and friendly. The food was to die for, having sampled the chef's pasta special...it was full of amazing flavours and has enticed me back again....even though we are only here for 3 nights. The wine choice was also excellent. Intimate atmosphere...and despite being close to other diners....that added... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
