“Italian in Paris”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

In this area of Paris, it seems many French restaurants are closed. When I arrived in the Neighborhood around 5:30pm on a Sunday, it was open, but they were preparing for the evening.

I walked around for 2 hours, until I saw people sitting and eating, and finally went inside. The staff was a bit curt at first, sitting me alone inside, when there were plenty of tables outside. They left me sitting alone for a good 5 minutes before bringing me a menu. Finally after another 5 or 10 minutes they took my order. Two of the staff spoke English, one very well, and one did his best. I speak no French, so kept my order quite simple. I had the Caprese Salad, the plat de jour of Grilled Veal Chop, and a bottle of wine.

The wine, a reasonably priced 375ml (37.5 cl - or half a bottle) Valpolicella at 13 euro, was pleasant enough Not kept at cellar temperature, it was a little warm, but drank nicely.

The Mozzarella and Tomato salad was excellent, fresh mozzarella cheese made for quite an enjoyable dish.

The grilled veal chop was nicely cooked, medium rather than well and leathery. Juicy indeed. It was lightly seasoned, and really just the meat showed. I took pasta instead of vegetables for a side - and there was no doubt the pasta was fresh. Simple with olive oil, i added some fresh parmesean and it was great.

The price for dinner for 1 was about 45 euro, which included the half bottle of wine.

It was not the best Italian food i've had, in Paris, Italy or America. However, it was quite a nice meal for a Sunday in Paris. Many locals were eating by 8pm, which a number of people doing pizza takeout. One older gentleman walked in, sat, said nothing, and they brought his water and dish within a few minutes while he read his book.

“Nice Neighborhood Italian”
Reviewed 11 February 2013

We had Sunday lunch here yesterday after having not been for over a year, and it was the same solid Italian we were hoping for. The seafood risotto was well cooked, the pork special good, and the pizza devoured by my kids. The ambiance is nice, and on Sunday it was full of families, young and old, enjoying a glass of wine here, and a limoncello there. The desserts people were having around us looked amazing too. Lots of noise of spoons scraping up the last morsels! And the kids each enjoyed their passionfruit sorbet and chocolate gelato. And with pleasantly attentive servers, it remains a good solid restaurant for pasta and pizza in Neuilly.
