Description: La Romantica Caffe restaurant in Paris not two steps from the Ecole Militaire is the pretty little sister of the beloved La Romantica in Clichy. This attractive bistrot has exposed brick walls, sleek toffee-coloured seating, wooden floors, clever indirect lighting and a feeling that care has been lavished on every detail, no matter how relaxed the ambience. The menu differs slightly from big sister���s, too. It���s more informal, though still authentic seasonal Italian gastronomy, with dishes like a pretty irresistible assorted antipasti platter, a long list of pastas, classic ���elephant ear��� veal Milanese, and an ultralight tiramisu. Superb for business lunches, a small army of regulars keeps the atmosphere buzzing.

I felt the waiter was looking down his nose at us with a child there and I asked for a smaller portion of spaghetti, which I would of course pay the full price for, he said they wouldn't he would have to get an adult portion for our 6 year old son. Surely the chef could put half the amount on a plate without being any trouble what so ever. Especially if we were paying full price for it however much he got! The salmon I had was terribly salty and I couldn't eat it.

All in all we couldn't wait to leave.

Like many/most tourist-neighborhood restaurants that strive to go beyond Les Hamburgers, this place was expensive. We ended up doing 70 EU for a salad, a bit of fish, a bit of pasta, no wine, no dessert. But that's to be expected. The food taste good, and it =wasn't= just the same-old/same-old -- they were a little bit creative. On the other hand, the table service was bad (the waitperson remembered that we had been asking for water as we went out the the door), and we were still hungry after we left. Oh well. What can I say, it was nearby.

There is not too much options around Les Invalides in Paris. Suddenly, leaving hungy from the building, we found a charming cafe, called La Romantica. Getting in the place, we felt a real sensation that food would be fine. And It was indeed. Well elaborated pasta into a big Italian Cheese, good cellar, high quality cuisine. When in Paris, on the left side of Invalides (you facing the main entrance) you find the restaurant. Logo is in red written on a black cover protection.

We returned to this restaurant for our last night in Paris to have a special dinner and it was well worth it. We ordered the special creamy sage linguine. Fine brandy is poured onto a large round of cheese and lit which melts some of the cheese. The cooked linguine is then placed onto the melted cheese and tossed to blend all the flavors. Absolutely delicious. We then followed our main course with a dessert of a lemon-basil sorbet. Perfect ! Can't wait to go back.
