A great place to catch up with friends. No background distractions to upset the conversation and enjoyment of good food, well presented and served with passion and care. The small considered menu covered all the bases. The spaghetti was great; seafood very tasty and the dessert just enough to round of a fantastic evening. The staff were friendly and attentive....

We visited this restaurant as it came recommended by a friend who is also a chef in Paris. Both me and my girlfriend absolutely love Italian food so we visit Italian restaurants often, but this was probably the best Italian dinner we ever had. Everything was truly amazing. Food - service - setting - wine They only have a menu... More

As Sassotondo is rated in Le Fooding, the famous restaurant critique website, we thought that we could give it a try. Either, the restaurant has always been overrated or the cook has been making no efforts since he became fashionable. The prices for pasta are quite high - 20 euros for ravioli. If you then have to eat empty (!!)... More

We were in the area on Sunday and needed something to eat. This is a small restaurant/ bistro which serves super food. The staff and service were efficient and very friendly. I had squid to start, then seafood spaghetti which came with clams and razor clams. It needed a little more seasoning but otherwise was very good. All for 21... More

Sassotondo is a great Italian restaurant. It is not a usual Italian restaurant like others in Paris. This place is authentic Italian. You can have a prosciutto sliced by the chef as a starter and chose from daily menu which is always fresh. Service was also nice, they forgot to charge me for the wine but I told them.

We were a party of four persons on October 12, 2013. This Italian restaurant is apparently affiliated with the Astier Restaurant nearby where we had a delightful meal three days earlier, but the Sassotonda bears no comparison to the Astier in the quality of its food. One of our first courses (quail legs) was quite good, but the other choices... More

We had heard about Sassatondo from a foodies blog we read before we came to Paris. It is one of the few really good restaurants open on Sunday evenings. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were treated like old friends. And on top of the friendly atmosphere the food was wonderful. Of paticular note was the chicken fracases... More
