“Nice Little Caffe”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I read some good reviews about this wee place and thought I would give it a try, this is simple small restaurant very near the Arc d' Triomphe, great soup and the pasta was lovely.
Unfortunate that there is no reasonably priced place (that I have found) within a 2 miles radius of the centre of Paris but worth a visit

“last and worst meal of the trip”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We went here based on Tripadvisor reviews. The pizza sucked. Frozen pizza would have been better. We started with the antipasti salad. It was frozen thawed carrot slices, frozen thawed peas, grilled marinated onion, zucchini, and eggplant, roasted red oily pepper slices. It was so gross I couldn't eat it. What kind of restaurant serves thawed frozen cold vegetables like that?

“Our favourite Italian in Paris”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great place serving one of the best pastas ever tasted. My favourite being the penne arrabiatta Situated on Rue De Washington off avenue champs elysee. This place is a small family run joint with great service and tasty food! Mamma Mia!

“Excellent food off Champs Elysee!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We were going to another restaurant on the same street but they were closed. .. lucky for us! We found this small Italian restaurant close to the one we intended to go to.
The service is excellent and friendly. The food is clearly above my expectations.

Go there!

“Caffe Italiano, our favorite since the Millinium Year, Mike and Joy Caso”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy the food and friendship of host and chef Gianluigi since our first trip to Paris during the millinium year, missing just two years to the present 2013. The ever congenial Gianluigi prepares food equal to his great personality. Each dish is prepared fresh and with fresh ingrediants and the portions are generous. Being a spice guy I really enjoy the Pasta Arrabbiata and the Pizza Diavalo, both are spicey with fantastic flavor. What ever you order will be prepared at the moment, be it pasta or pizza, incuding the many sauces that Gianluigi creates.The wines are very good and the cost is resonable,and I recomend a glass of grappa with your homemade desert. To find your way look for the Swatch Shop on the corner of Washington and the Champs Elyesees then head down Washington to find The Caffe Italiano. 15 rue Washington 75008 Paris.France Tel. 01 42 25 5001
