The patron is nice, and I've read his explanations for the sky-high prices, but they don't add up. His overhead is virtually nil. So either he's the worst financial manager ever or he's ripping us off. Too bad, because it's quite good.

Owner is from Puglia in Italy, and is a pleasure to be around. He made a real effort with us in English to explain the menu. Food was brilliant. I had squid ink tagliollini with calamar for a main and it was very special. Italian cheeses were top notch. Desert was unusual but delicious - Very powerful gorgonzola with peanuts... More

Very nice cuisine, original recipes with fresh Italian poducts and excellent wines. The downside? The prices, really too high. The wine in particular is selected by the owner without giving any indication of the price (it turned out to be almost 40 euros a bottle ). Shame, because the place could really be perfect.

I absolutely loved this place. Everything was top notch, the food (original and delicious), the wine, the service, the decor. It's a bit pricey for Paris (22 euros for a pasta dish) but it's worth it if you can afford it

Tiny restaurant - you're basically sitting in the kitchen. The chef/waiter/owner is great- talented, funny, takes his food seriously. The food itself is perfect. Always new. Always from ingredients he purchased that morning. Always something you've never had. He made a truffle oil cannoli that actually made me cry because it was so good. I always go there with friends...

The place we had planned for lunch was closed so we ended up here by accident - and how lucky we were. A lovely, very friendly owner/chef, AMAZING food and lovely wine. Delicious salads as a starter, fabulous polenta/mushrooms/truffles/raclette and salami main course and an amazing deconstructed cheesecake for pudding. Perfect in every way: foodie heaven (and loads of vegetarian... More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks.
