Actually went in to use the restroom and get a glass of wine. Ended up with one of the best dining experiences on this trip. The service was just fine, the prices were a little steep but we are talking about going back because the food was exceptional. The truffle pizza is the show stopper.

I went to the restaurant at the recommendation of my hotel concierge. The food was quite good but the service very slow. We were a party of 3 and when 2 of the 3 entrees arrived the third was nowhere to be seen. I waited for 5 minutes and when I asked for it they brought it over and said... More

Lunch is served between noon & 2:30, but, be advised that the kitchen closes early (@ least by 2:10). We were informed this bit of information very rudely by the hostess (whom we believe is the owner). The cuisine was fabulous, but, the service is poor. For friendly ambience and fine Italian cuisine, try Fellini (just blocks from the Louvre).... More

I was recommended by a local to try this restaurant and start from appetizers to desserts, i was not let down at all! We had tomato mozzarella and salad which was very refreshing, followed with The perfect truffle pizza which flavor and aroma is mind blasting, clam pasta (days special), and cod fillet. For the dessert, we really enjoyed the... More

We were mislead by the "fine italian cuisine" description and by the poche neigbourhood where the restaurant is situated (next to Hotel Crillon and US Embassy). However it is way overpriced for what it serves, at least twice as much for what it offered. The service is poor, personnel hardly competent. Dropping cutlery and plates. Long waiting time. Not being... More
