Stumbled across this little Italian gem while visiting Paris and staying in the Invalides 7th ARR. The food was good, the service was good, and I will Star this place so visit again when in Paris.

My Mom Ana I ate here twice during our stay in Paris. The food was simply excellent - from the starters to the desserts. The wine list was very good too. The staff were so helpful and kind as well. Highly recommended.

We were staying in the area and booked a table in advance, we turned up to the restaurant to find it closed. No email or text to let us know, very disappointing.

We were staying down the street and came here twice for dinner. Both times the food was delicious. English was a bit rough but we were able to order easily enough even with language difference.
