If you are not a regular don't expect too warm of a welcome but the food was very good and the location is well situated. My wife started with the Insalata rucola e grana (Salade de roquette et fromage grana) and I started with the Mozzarella di Bufala e pomodori with Mozzarella de Bufflonne et tomates then my wife had...

This is really like an italian resteraunt in Italy, the staff are really kind and nice! (Unlike some other french people...) The dishes are very good and... More

Welcome to Paris. The welcome is for any restaurant operator willing to open in Paris. Here you don't need quality: just open in a nice location, with nice interior design and your place will be full. Do you need an example? Marco Polo. The place is really nice. Nothing of luxurious but warm and lively, with wood and red decoration... More

One of our best meals in Paris, easily. Service started great, ended so-so but it really wasn't a big deal and didn't dampen the overall experience of our meal. Delicious food. The only other downside was being seated outside (no reservation) which meant being subjected to the smoking section.

Had a lunch at Marco Polo, the pasta was good, but the place is overpriced in general. It was very busy though.

Let me state this right : the food is really good in this place. The service however is very strange : less than one minute after receiving our aperitif, we already get our food. Totally unacceptable of course for any restaurant. By the way, portions are not so big, so normally you will need a starter and a main course... 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.
