“Good food, busy restaurant”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This place is referred to in lots of articles, blogs etc. and being as we were staying close by we decided to give it a try. It is a small restaurant and we could not pre-book after 8 so we just turned up. The staff are very nice and friendly. We were seated immediately. The menu is predominantly pizza (huge) and about 4 pasta dishes of the day and a few salads. My daughter had a pizza and my husband and I both picked a pasta of the day - pasta filled with 4 cheeses in a truffle cream sauce. It was gorgeous.
The place was busy all night , with locals arriving and waiting for tables to be vacated. The tables are close together but it adds to the charm. It is not a cheap restaurant, although I don't think such a place exists in Paris! It was 14 euros for a vegetarian pasta and the hous wine is about 12 euros.
Relaxed atmosphere, good food.

“Great place, really like in an Italian Trattoria”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Friendly staff, nice food (both pizza and pasta were great), and not many tourists. Clients come from all Paris, and to find a table it's better to come at the opening (19h30).

“decent and tasty”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food was good but not exceptional. The menu consists of half a dozen salads and about 25 varieties of pasta. The service was efficient but not attentive or particularly helpful.
The outdoor seating is nice but a bit limited and it was necessary to sit alongside other couples.

“Little Italian gem in Paris”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Great little restaurant. With fresh food, good atmosphere and very reasonably priced. You'll be surrounded with Parisians, so just blend in and bon appetit!
