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.

Very overcrowded and noisy but service was quite quick. I had a 4 fromages pizza which was burned on the bottom so actually tasted pretty gross. It isn't a place I would recommend to anyone as the food was so bad I only ate a very small portion and due to the excessive noise I couldn't wait to get out.... More
