This is a must for the tourist in Paris! As an American, the owner Claudio is an amazing host. And the al dente pasta was incredible; especially the truffle special!

A bit strange atmosphere but very friendly and serviceminded. The food was quite ok, but expensive. 2 adults and 2 children had pasta and drinks at a cost of Euro 78:-

Whether you go for pizza or pasta, you can't go wrong. If you like truffles, the mushroom and truffle pasta is to die for! And the carbonara is made the traditional way, without cream. The special sauce of the day when we were there was...More

Very disappointed when the restaurant cancelled our booking shortly before our visit. Said to be a great place for Italian food, but we came to closed doors, as did other guests, even though the sign said they were open.

This restaurant is authentic Italian with a great atmosphere and food. You really get the family owned business feel here. It's like you've stopped over to your friends home for a meal. We ate here 2 or 3 times during my visit to Paris. I...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and

We visited in April and it was one of the best places we could have picked. It is NOT luxurious but more homely - the food is wonderful. It will be open - the owner just isn't that technical.... so suspect they don't even... More
