“Refreshing meal & don't miss the tres boulles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Walked by this corner neighborhood restaurant between lunch and dinner and though we glanced at the chalkboard menu, just didn't think to go back. On our second to last night, tired, hungry and just wanting a good honest meal we decided to try it because of someone's else's review on eggplant parmesan. While we didn't see that, the plat du jour caught our eye. Grilled lamb chops, polenta, and mushrooms. Perfect, we ordered two, and a pichet of rose to start. Served in the right amount of time (even with a full house) the chops were devine, the polenta smooth w/a homemade clump or two (making you feel at home) and crazy mushrooms I've seen but never bought to try. The juice from the lamb just added to the flavor. We finished with what has to be some of the best ice cream in Paris. Tried chocolate, lemon, and cafe. So rich and creamy we went back the next night an sat outside just to have ice cream and coffee as we watched the night envelope the Pantheon. A perfect last night in Paris. Looking over other plates as they were served, I don't think you could go wrong with any item. Friendly service. Comforting food. Easy to find. enjoy!

“Good Food, great Staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We were welcomed warmly, the waitress spoke perfect English and seemed genuinely happy to see us. We went twice, once for late night pizza and once for dinner.

“Fantastic food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We ate here twice while in Paris - once for a late lunch and once for dinner. The food was good for both meals and the service was excellent. Highly recommend!

“RIght next to the hotel, but ...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Just not good Italian food. That was what we get for being lazy. Service was slow and the pasta was mushy.

“Average restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The food was really just "okay". The service was very slow. Luckily we met a couple (also waiting) who we chatted with while waiting. I had the spaghetti bolognese and my husband had the risotto and it was just alright. We picked it because it had good reviews on trip advisor and was right across the street from our hotel.
