If you want a relief from the abundance of bad food that can be found in Paris restaurants (as in many big cities) you will get it here. Francesco and Antonio have a created an Italian oasis in Paris. This is a casual Italian place...- pizza and pasta are in focus. We went two nights and would have gone more if we only knew. The burrata and Parma/melon appetizers were great. The pasta with lardo was a must. The pasta Bolognese was tip-top. Do not pass up the panna cotta. Thank you gentlemen for the nicest meals and atmosphere we had in Paris. For early eaters, they open at 7 pm which is not usual in Paris.More

The first time we went we had antipasto, gnocchi and a pasta dish. INCREDIBLE. We can back for a light dinner. We split a small antipasto and a pizza. Once again it was INCREDIBLE. Real Italian food made by real Italians! Not the pseudo pizza...that has invaded ParisMore

The place is very cosy and the food is delicious. The owner is very friendly and will give you many information about the plates or the history behind it. Meals of the day are delicious and everything is homemade, even the bread!

This little gem is the most authentic Italian restaurant you can find. The wine selection is on point, the pizzas are to die for and as another reviewer wrote the pasta did remind me of my nonna too! Also the tiramisù is the yummiest I've...had in my life! And the wonderful service makes the whole experience 100% ItalianMore

After trying an Italian on our first night in Paris, which was a MAJOR let down! We came across Croccante.....Holiday saved!! Tiny on space but MASSIVE on authenticity. From the minute we arrived(without a reservation) we were made to feel so welcome. My son wanted...something not on the menu, not a problem. Food was tasty & portions more than expected. It is a very small restuarant, so tables are extreemly close. For some reason this works well, so don't let it put you off. My son who isn't a fan of busy/noisy was quite happy. Infact it was so good we booked for the following night! When we arrived, we were greeted like old friends, the owner(?) Was so friendly but not "in your face" Again it was busy, but for some reason you don't mind sitting elbow to elbow with the people at the next table. Price was amazing, €85 for 1 starter(we shared btwn 3 as huge!) 4 mains, 2 desserts, water, a glass of wine & 1 beer. Overall if you are looking for a traditional Italian meal STOP looking and come here. Thank you Croccante for saving our holiday(2 nights of below average food, ment Paris was shaping up to be a let down in the dinner department!) HIGHLY RECCOMEND The Agnew family from Edinburgh 😍More

A wonderful friendly welcome followed by 3 courses of tasty food. As a vegetarian I was impressed by the penne pasta with beautifully cooked vegetables. The Sicilian wine was excellent followed by cafe gourmand. 10/10

It had been 2 years since we last ate at Croccante and nothing has changed in that tiime. The food is simply excellent, the service is excellent and "Italian". The atmosphere reminds us of our visits to Florence and Rome. Portions are generous, prepared fresh,...full flavored but (at least with my tagliatelle carbonara) prepared with finesse. My wife had the same impression with her pasta dish (the house's all-in pasta). The service is provided with gusto, as is the taste of the food and the wine list is very good and heavy on quality Italian wines. The place buzzes all the time with activity and gets crowded, which hardly hampers the great service. I would say that the prices are moderate and certainly when considered with the very large portions. It would be impossible to leave without a pleasantly full stomach.More

We were trying to find an Italian restaurant near our hotel and set off in the direction of a restaurant that ended up no longer being there. It was pouring rain and it was cold and we were lucky to find another high rated Italian...restaurant nearby. We arrived right as they were opening (thanks) and were immediately greeted and sat. We ordered a Pizza and one of their Daily Specials. Our food was delivered pretty quickly, even though we were told the Daily Special (with Anellini pasta?) was still baking and would be delayed. The food was absolutely amazing! Everything was really fresh and had so much flavor despite the simple ingredients. This was the best food that we had in Paris! The restaurant is very small, but they do take reservations. The service was excellent and the people were friendly. Our server spoke great English and gave us good suggestions. The prices are also very reasonable, especially for the large portions!More

My daughter was at Necker hospital following an emergency appendectomy while on vacation, and we were in search of some good food that we could share as a family at the hospital. I went to Croccante based on the TA reviews and so glad that...I did. The lasagna special, gnocchi and penne pasta were all wonderful. They were more than willing to accommodate our takeout request, and I was beyond grateful for the excellent service, especially of Luca who helped with translation and accommodated the special pasta order for my daughter. Thank you!More
