Having lived in Rome, this place is the closest I found in the 13th to true Italian recipes and cooking. A bit pricey but delicious!

We found the food the be very tasty with a couple of pasta dishes and one meat dish. The service was fine and prices not too high. They have both nice indoor and outdoor seating. Great part of Paris for a good meal. We happened on the place at random and were very happy with the choice.

We fell for that, since all the other restaurants around were full, this one had ample space so we went in, sat down, and realized why it had ample space - too late, we should have left after all - namely, overpriced, food mediocre quality. Paid 16 euros for a dish called "ravioli" - consisting of 6 raviolis in total.... More

The best restaurant in the quartier of La Butte-aux-Cailles is this italian!! (I live here and tasted all : I highly recommend Les Cailloux). All the food is delicious, refined. The staff is friendly with kids (and adults too) which is rare in Paris. A real piece of Italy in my street: Grazie mille!

Authentic Italian Restaurant in the Butte aux Cailles district. The area surrounding this restaurant was the centre of the Paris Commune (1871), and remains a somewhat bohemian area, so it is fun to explore before or after your meal. The restaurant itself is well worth the visit. It is small, but has a great atmosphere, crowded with Parisians. The food... More

The food is splendid. The welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff are always a good reason to go back there. This last time we went with my sister and her husband. We were welcomed as always. This time time we had "Legumi e burrata" as starter. After, "Paccheri Gamberi", "tagliata di manzo" and "polpo inferno with polenta". As dessert we had... More

A delightful Italian surprise in Paris. My husband and I had octopus carpaccio and fried eggplant for appetizers followed by a a grilled beef/arugula salad and linguini with lemon, rosemary and a touch of cream. We were in heaven.

Chose this from a number of restaurants along a quaint and lively row of eateries. The first good impression was the waitress who, upon realizing we were Americans with very limited french, smiled sweetly at us and called to her English speaking colleague to assist us. And assist she did. She wqw patient and kind the entire meal. The octopus... More

I discovered this place by chance, walking out of my hotel (st. Charles, a good pick) and I'm absolutely delighted. I usually don't eat Italian in France (I'm from Italy) but this place is fantastic. The waitresses are friendly and the food is great, original and the service is reasonably quick. I had no reservation, was alone and the place... More
