While staying in Paris, we stumbled upon this lovely pizza restaurant round the corner from the studio we were renting. The madam in charge was so lovely and welcoming. Particularly when we could barely speak a word of French or Italian. As you walk in you feel a lovely warm ambience in the place. We were the only tourists there.... More

The staff were attentive and friendly, we paid about €50 for 2 pizzas a whole bottle of wine and one pudding. Would have no hesitation in recommending... More

Our last night in Paris, a quiet casual dinner. We chose the Caprese salad (wrong season for tomatoes) but still tasty. We chose the "Speciale" pizza ... nicely topped with a delicious crust.

We came here recently for a change to our usual habits, knowing that we always used to eat well. We were disappointed to find the ownership had changed and that the quality had deteriorated. The pizza dough left us with heavy stomachs most of the evening... The atmosphere is still quaint but better quality and value for money can be... More

The food value was good. This restaurant is a small family owned restaurant that has a nicely diversified menu. The service was friendly and the food very good.

My partner ordered ravioli and I ordered a pizza. She has now finished her ravioli-I'm still waiting for my pizza. When the ravioli came the waiter said '2-3 mins' for the pizza. 5 mins later he said '2 mins' Finally it arrived and all the staff are 'desolee'. So am I. At having chosen this restaurant. Couple at the next... More

Nice restaurant in the heart of Paris. Has a nice feel when you walk into the door. The menu has a good range of food and the staff were very friendly. Would recommend the Chocolate Mousse, it was very nice!

This is a typical Italian restaurant serving wholesome pasta and pizza dishes which are tasty and reasonably priced. The number of staff is sometimes a little low and we saw some guests waiting a long time for their food. Maybe it was just a bad night. The presentation is good and you would not be disappointed. Nothing spectacular.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
