Tiny place but authenticItalian cuisine. Very tasty and good size of portion, it is worth to pay a visit to this place. The service is good. As the place is known for its good food, make sure you reserve for a table, it can be...rowdyMore
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!)

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

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
