We've been returning here twice each trip to Paris, as we often stay at a hotel in the area. Terra Nova has simple Italian fare and a limited menu, but it is always well made. It's not expensive and the service is quite good. Not...More

The ideal small restaurant that, when full, becomes lively and full of joi de vivre. Speak just a little simple Italian and the one-man-show waiter opens up, happy that you have done him the kindness of speaking in Italian.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
