This is my second time back at Le Petit Italien and I am so happy that I went back to this spot on this trip. It was my first night in Paris, and my French was beyond terrible, but our waiter had the patience and the smile to listen as I stumbled. The food is delicious - I had the... More

Passed by this bustling restaurant several times as it was near our hotel. After a few French meals during our visit, we decided to give it a try and WOW! The shrimp scampi was the best I have ever had. My husband also loved the veal parm. The ambiance is casual yet very charming, warm and lively. Our waiter was... More

We had lunch at Le Petit Italien on a sunny Sunday afternoon. After having visited the crowded Place des Vosges we were delighted to find a quiet nearby street harboring several great restaurants. Le Petit Italien is one of them. We just had pasta. The service was swift and friendly. The open kitchen allows you to take a peek at... More

Delicious food. Pleasant environment situated a short walk from Place de Vosges. With the sun shining, the outdoor eating space is a great way to experience this restaurant if the weather is kind. We chose indoors near an open window, a compromise given the weather. Great value for money.

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
