Hidden surprise down a narrow street. The food was superb -- extremely fresh and definitely made with lots of love. Best beef carpaccio we have ever eaten -- dried to perfection and very tender. I like my pasta al dente and the owner told us they cook all their pasta dishes al dente -- absolute perfection.

The restaurant is cozy [25 seats], the owners are a husband and wife team [she is the chef, he runs the front of the house].

If you are visiting Paris, the restaurant is off Wagram just a couple blocks from the Arc De Triomphe -- definitely worth the stroll for a taste of Italy in Paris

On my first night in Paris with my wife, we found this restaurant close to the Arc de Triomphe.
The place is cozy, with a lovely atmosphere. The menu' is small however the wine selection is fantastic.
We had a delicious and romantic meal.

We had a great time at this little restaurant. The food was really good, and service was extremely friendly. We were ready to try something other than french food, and we were sure glad we chose Cantina Chic for that. We shared a starter, had one main course and glass of wine each and the bill came out to under 50 Euros, tip included. If you like italian food, it's a sure bet.

Very close to the Arc de Triomphe, so a very convenient location, tucked away in a side-street. It is a small restaurant with a small menu, but oh so worth it! The restaurateur is passionate about his food and wines. This was my favourite meal of our Paris trip. Delicious meal, great wine recommendation that I would never have tried without the recommendation, and such an attentive and lovely host (with excellent English). I would go back to Paris just for another evening here!

This place is grand. The owner is your server and speak english. He has a very small menu, that i dont know if it changes or not. He goes over it with you in english, and is super nice. We had an anti pasta appetizer which had a mix of procuitto, mozzerellA, arugula, peppeoni, artichoke hearts, and pepper. So glad we got that. Then we had a penne with red sauce and bowtie pasta with zuchinni sauce. Ive never had anything like it. Then we had panacotta with homemade riocotta. AMAZING!!!!
