Marvellous authentic Italian food - tasted just Mama used to make... Well, not my Mama, but one who was Italian and a good cook :) chilli squids for starter, & linguine amatritciana (sp?) for main, panacotta with honey and caramel for desert. Pasta cooked to perfection & sauce delightfully smoky. Reasonable red wine to accompany. Totalled 65euro for two.

The talented young lady Chef whipps up dishes from her native Sardinia using fresh main ingredients flown in from Calabria. An original mix in a cosy atmosphere, where the Paris-born owner has selected excellent wines - all at an affordable price. If in Montmartre, don't miss it. Unique.

After a week+ of nothing but French food, I was ready for something different. My boyfriend and I sought out this cozy little Italian place after stopping at Sacre Couer, and it did not disappoint.

The restaurant is tiny (as in seats maybe 12 people) but is positively charming and laid back (it was a nice break after the fancy, multiple course meals we'd been having). We both had main dishes (me the pasta with pesto, him the seafood spaghetti), which we both loved. The staff spoke excellent English and they also had English menus, but the patrons were a good mix of tourists and locals. The server also did a great job with the wine recommendations, and even impressed my boyfriend (who's not a fan of Italian wines) with his choices. We split the tiramisu for dessert, which was heavenly.

Definitely worth a stop while in Paris!

Went with my wife. We really loved the lasagna which was the special that day, and tasted so home made. We also really loved the vegetable antipasto, especially the zucchini which was cut super thin and cooked perfectly.
