“Great first dinner in Paris!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

For our first night in Paris, we wanted to go somewhere casual that was close to the Eiffel Tower. I had chose this place because of the good reviews and we weren't disappointed! The restaurant itself is small and quaint, exactly the time of restaurant we thought we would find in Paris. We sat outside, it had covered seating, but from what I could see, the inside had decor that made you feel like you were in Italy. I especially loved the light fixtures they had that were made out of wine bottles.

Our waiter spoke perfect English and was very helpful - offering us the Wifi password and refilling our bread basket as we decided what to eat. For the four of us, we chose two pizzas to split - they are a pretty good size. Our Margherita pizzas were delicious!! For dessert I had raspberry sorbet while my sister had tiramisu and we were both extremely happy with our choices.

Just a five minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, this place is absolutely adorable with really good food for a great price, and I would definitely recommend it!

“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Excellent food. We ate here a few times because we loved it so much. Great waiters everytime we went. So friendly and perfect English.
They made a special pepperoni pizza for my teenage son and I had chicken cesar salad one time and then another time I had chicken breast with white sauce, mushrooms and pasta. It was excellent.

My son had his first chocolate mousse here and it was fantastic.

Restaurant is small but intimate. Very reasonable prices.

“Really recommend”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

This little restaurant was absolutely fabulous. We shared a chorizo pizza and bruschetta both of which were delicious.

The waiter from Brazil was very friendly.

All in all would thoroughly recommend this little gem and it,s only 5 minutes stroll from the Eiffel Towel.
