The food was wonderful, especially burrata, seafood risotto and cod with vegetables. This place has a nice atmosphere and is totally worth a visit. Shoutout to the friendly waiter who can speak French, English, Italian and German!

I had great memories of this little restaurant. I have recommended it to all I know who visit Paris. However, on my return I experienced highly rude staff. I had a short space of time, and wished to have a coffee. It was approximately 1230pm....More

The food was good. The sawrdfish was delicious, nice risoto and good pasta, but the service was very confused. We recieved 3 dishes after the 2 other were eaten. Drinks appeared after we finished our dinner. The staff was fair and didn't charge the drinks...More

Used to be a regular visitor. Sadly went and everything we'd ordered was off the menu - despite the fact it was almost empty. Food was very poor and we were still asked to pay even though I'd eaten half my plate and not enjoyed...More

Got a table straight away at what would normally be peak time especially during happy hour. Service was speedy and attentive but not overly so. Monty and I both ordered the lamb ravoli which was very tasty but quite expensive at 21euros. However it went...More

Searching for a quick lunch near the Galleries - have to watch out as can be a real tourist trap around Opera. Stumbled on this Italian by chance and very happy. Delicious pasta, quick and excellent service. A little pricey, but warrants it in quality.

The food is great and the atmosphere is great! The service is prompt and the staff is lovely. This is why after along work day I decided to return. I knew I won't be disappointed.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
