Italian food... Tasty well done dishes with good Italian wines. Service was friendly and the terrace was comfortable. Butte aux Cailles area adds value as well worth a go.

I, too, visited without reading the reviews and , thank goodness, I may have missed a great meal! The service was exceptionally attentive and the food excellent. I was proud to say I was the ONLY tourist the whole evening. I left feeling I had experienced a local gem. Don't listen to the naysayers. Just go and enjoy

For once a real italian food restaurant (don't go there for pizza you won't find it), with Italian way of having lunch or dinner (2 plates instead starter and main). Go there and have a taste also of the charming Buttes aux cailles neighbour.

We had a lunch here: Insalata caprese, carpaccio di manzo and frutta. very simple, light, not incredible quantities, but just perfect. It's clear that this restaurant uses great ingredients - perfect olive oil, perfectly cut carpaccio and tasty tomatoes and bread: the bsic ingredients of the Italian kitchen. For 18euros you get a glass of red wine with it (good... More

Walking about La Butte-aux-Cailles (which is named after a man and not a bird) made us hungry and my wife says, let's have Italian and eat here. I agreed, recalling that "Pudlo" favorably reviewed the restaurant. Walking in, we heard only Italian and French ... and were warmly greeted by (as it turned out), the owner and perhaps her daughter.... More

Its so easy to find. At the top of the very pretty Butte aux Cailles, it hosts a place popular for obvious neighbourhood regulars. Its elegant taupe facade and large windows invited us to enter the chic decorations, not dissimilar from New York-style, subdued lighting and an old, untreated parquet floor. We had aubergine millefiuille , tagliata of beef with... More

This was probably the worst dining experience I have had for years. The owner of this restaurant should be ashamed of his surly staff, poor service and over priced food and wine. The kitchen staff are obviously under pressure to churn our poor quality food at high speed. After a poor starter the main course arrived almost immediately with the... More

This restaurant has great service and their pasta tastes awesome. Small restaurant and it appears they make stuff from scratch. The only bad thing is they don't take Amex.

I've been to this restaurant several times for Sunday lunch and always loved the food and appreciated the Italian staff. I went there for lunch this week during the week and had the lunch menu which is great value. You can have a starter and a main course for 14 euros or a three course menu with a glass of... More

Staying in Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique

Neighborhood Profile
Place d'Italie / Quartier Asiatique
Far off the beaten path, this part of Paris is a forgotten gem worth exploring. Avenue d’Ivry houses Europe's largest Chinatown with great Asian supermarkets and shops, and a thrilling atmosphere around Chinese New Year. Place d’Italie impresses onlookers as soon as they set their eyes on it. Not far, around La Butte aux Cailles, the streets suddenly imitate provincial France and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported. The beauty of these streets lies in their surprises around every twist and turn.
