I would recommend this charming Italian restaurant to all travellers looking for good Italian food. It's just around the corner of Place Jourdan. The pizza was excellent and the Tiramisu dessert even better.

The food was so natural no chemicals and the taste sooooo rich. We had the scrumptious crusted pizza, antipasti, wine, osso bucco,vongole, and everything was so fresh and tasty. Luigi is the best. Only speaks French and italian.

I use to come to order the pizza and to eat home (I am lucky enough to live very close). The pizza was always perfectly cooked, the ingredients fresh and tasty. And for a very reasonable price!

We ordered pizzas and wine, everything was delicious and affordable. The pizzas were light and their sauce is great. Walkable neighborhood and street parking nearby.
