We visited this restaurant twice, since it was just across from our hotel and we were impressed by the friendly reception, good service and fresh quality of the food.

We particularly liked the bruschetta and rocket salad with parmesan shavings. We ordered one portion of each to share between three people, and were immediately given three place settings.
You can choose between homemade or dry pasta, and both were excellent. The pizzas are nice and thin, and freshly baked. The tiramisu, made on the premises, had too much cream and too little rum for our taste.

It is advisable to reserve, since it is obviously a popular place for both tourists and locals. Only one member of staff spoke English, so if you don't speak Italian, it is wise to choose items on the pre-printed menu. If you choose the chalkboard items, you could end up with octopus or squid.

This is good place for a family outing, but probably not for a romantic night out, since there is too little space between the tables to guarantee privacy.

The restaurant doesn't open until 19.30.

Visited this restaurant twice on our 4 day trip to Paris. Nice place and friendly owners. The food true to the Italian kitchen and you get a great smile if you try your Italian language:):)
Can absolutely be recommended.

Dined here twice as close to Hotel Des Comedies. Good value and good food. Don't expect privacy as such is not common in Paris but the smokers do go outside and the clientele are friendly.

We were in Paris for only 3 nights, but we ate here twice for dinner! We blindly picked it the first night, but fell in love and came back for our farewell, last night of our two week vacation meal. From appetizers to desert everything was superb. The owner made sure everything we ordered was delicious and expertly presented. I want to go back to Paris just to eat here again!
