“Charming and relaxed”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Cute little quiet bistro, with good pizza and wine at reasonable prices. This a great place to go if you're dining alone and want to just relax--they have several red wines available in half bottles and won't give you any attitude or too much attention if you're alone. Their spicy oil is delicious but they only have one large bottle of it to pass around the restaurant, so decide quickly how much of it you want on your pizza! Be aware that they only take credit cards with "smart chips" so bring cash if you just have typical US credit cards (this was a bit embarrassing for me but the staff where very polite and patient while I hiked a few blocks to the nearest ATM).

“Great little pizza joint away from the hustle&bustle in Paris”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

We stumbled upon this when we were looking for a supermarket to find a quick lunch(there is a supermarket on the same street but the Pizza sign caught my eye)

The family that operates welcomed us right away, the pizza was really good, the service was fast and the price was very reasonable. The street and restaurant were quiet and comfortable, wine was cheaper than water (I love that about Paris!)

This is one block north of Rue de Rivoli (shopping street) on Rue des Bourdonnais. It's tucked away, but worth the find.

“Good Food-Great Value”
Reviewed 19 December 2010

While in Paris recently for a week, my wife and I had rented a 1 bedroom on rue des Bourdonnais in 1ier Arrondissement. Being tired from a long day of sightseeing, we opted not to go in search of a restaurant but settled for the little restaurant next door. Definitely, this was a great decision!
We walked thru the kitchen to get to one of 4-5 table in the back of the establishment. Service was prompt and the food was very good with large portions. the entire bill, including a liter of very palatable house red was under 50 Eur.
We would definitely recommend this to families on a budget or students travelling in Paris.
