When you just cannot eat another bite of French food, try Italian. Sweet little restaurant off the beaten path. Lovely, serene atmosphere. Friendly, professional service. Authentic Italian cuisine. Our meal was delicious from start to finish. The fresh pasta was outstanding. The only negative was over-salting of the sauce which may have been an isolated instance.

Excellent dinner! Very kind and helpful staff, in special a smiley Brazilian who suggested me one of the best white wines I've ever had. Très recommended!

We were in Paris for the Marathon last week and decided on the Boca based on other Trip Adviser reviews. Located on a small side street(rue de sabot) off the rue de Rennes, this restaurant does not disappoint. I would say this was the freshest and best pasta I have ever had. We both chose the special for the evening which was a Zitti like pasta with sausage cheese and tomato sauce. It might sound like BakedZitii but it wasn't anything like it. The pasta was done al dente and the sausage,cheese and sauce were incredible. The staff is warm and friendly and speaking French makes it a bit easier but there were some English only patrons that night and the waitstaff was able to help them navigate the menu choices. A small restaurant and reservations are a must.Tabkes are close together and not a quiet intimate setting.We ate at 7 pm and watched as party after party were politely turned away and asked to return in 2 hours if they wanted a table. We chose a Valpollicello that was the recommended wine for the evening and it was a nice complement to the meal. A wonderful meal even if you don't need to carb up before a Marathon. Bon Appettito!!

Wonderful small little italian restaurant where i did not regret my choice of food. In fact, i wished i could have ordered more if i had a bigger party with me. This is a good choice for a catch up over dinner with friends and the only thing on my wish list is that i get to come back to try out the other food items.

We loved this restaurant so much when we visited in Nov 2013, we decided to visit again. Boy, what a mistake. We were so disappointed by the service and food we will not return again. Everything seemed off on Tues. Jan 22. The wait staff was inconsistent and lacked attention. While the menu specifically listed "in print" that there were multiple price fix menu options, we were never told that the options pertained only to those items written on a wall board that was incredibly difficult to read. It was only after receiving our very large bill that we were told that the hard copy items from the "MENU" were not part of the options. This restaurant is very charming with a good location but the quality of food and service for the price paid just isn't there. A simple lunch of a glass of wine, one entree and one plate should not cost an arm and a leg. Here it does unless you choose one of the "options from the board." Visitors beware.
