“Great Italian food in Montmartre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

A fantastic little Italian restaurant in Montmartre. Delicious food in good sized portions from a small but interesting menu. The restaurant is small and intimate and the staff are very friendly. It seems to be popular with both locals and tourists.

One of the best meals I've had in Paris. Highly recommended.

“Great food, service is okay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We ended up at this restaurant as we had tickets to the late performance at Moulon Rouge. We arrived a few minutes early and were glad we did. The restaurant wa every crowded, tables right next to each other, hardly any room to walk, let along get up if you needed to use to toilet!
All was worth it because the food was excellent! We waited almost 30 minutes to order and when we did, we were brought the wrong wine. the right wine was sorted and was very nice, however, it was opened poorly we had a lot of cork in the first glass. The starters were delivered, prosciutto and mussels, both were excellent. We were then asked if we wanted dessert? We had not yet gotten our main course! Main course of pasta arrabiatta and lasagne was great. We finished with limoncello and glacé, both very nice. Thankfully we allowed ourselves enough time as we barely had time for a 5 minute walk to get to the performance.

What a WONDERFUL surprise. Felt like I was in Italy.
Fantastic tasty true Italian cuisine. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

“Fantastic Italian in Montmartre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

As wonderful as Paris is, the heavy three-course French meals can occasionally become a little too much - it was therefore quite refreshing to sit down to the simple and fresh Italian pasta dishes served at Al Caratello. Although the dining tables are rather small and the room a little crowded, this is most likely due to the popularity of the restaurant with both the locals and the happy tourists who stumble across it. The waiters were very attentive and friendly, the scene was relaxed and the food delicious (although customers should be warned - the pasta portions are approximately double the size of those served in Italy!). Overall a great experience that we would happily repeat.
