It's an Italian restaurant in Paris. We went there with 8 people in our group. We sat outside to partake in the Parisian cafe atmosphere and to do some people watching while eating our meal. A few minutes after sitting down, a homeless person started to ask for money. I guess this could happen at any outside cafe, but the... More

Had not had lunch in this brasserie for many years and was pleased to see that it is still quite good. We all ordered burgers and enjoyed them, I had the fish one and found it tasty and original. Service is good for Paris because it is quick and efficient, and at the same time they do not push you... More

Vibrant fun place to eat in Paris. Mixed crowd, locals, tourists etc. Diverse menu, daily specials available. Not a place to go if you want a quiet meal out but if you want a fun place to eat at reasonable prices for Paris I'd recommend it.

The tables are really packed in. Pizza was pretty uninspired. The dough was OK . Decor is a little over the top, but you're having itallan in Paris.

Ok pizza and salad for a hungry family. Service was good, but the food was just so-so. We were staying at the Hilton Paris Opera across the street, so ended up here due to convenience.

Honest place, very busy but still enough room to have a relaxed meal. No haute cuisine but more simple dishes. Friendly and accurate staff. Quality of food is acceptable. The front part of the restaurant, a conservatory, is specifically reserved for smokers.

This place had good desserts and French onion soup only good thing going for it waiter was rude and main entrees were terrible! Pizza was just downright gross if you want a great dessert then this is your place but they don't seem to like Americans all that much

Restaurant totally overloaded, service personal unfriendly and frankly pissed at work. Food (pasta in our case) overcooked and tasteless. Really a spot for tourists.
