Le Cherche Midi (Dum Dum !) – Paris – France Visit Review: 9,6

Carnage at Colonnata...

  What more can you shout than "Murderers!" when you make a Bacon Colonnata suffer as they do in this establishment? And yet, the College Culinaire de France label could make believe that here they respect such a beautiful product.   The photo tickles your brain? Oh yes ! Not only is there a lemon, but the bacon is bathed in this juice. No sooner it has passed the [...]

Le Bugatti – Paris – France Visit Review: 13.8

It's a so long time…

Almost 30 years I know the Bugatti and its owner, Jo Dandachi, of Lebanese origin. Always a smiling service, efficient, and quality Italian food. Fresh products. The particuliarity is a style "sweet box" style, rather improbable, consequence of the accumulation for years of various and varied objects. Strange but has its charm. In addition, Jo organized many receptions for Miss [...]

La Locanda di Pietro – Rome – Italy Visit Review: 13.2

Not a tourist trap

In general, always avoid restaurants near tourist centers. It means that the search was difficult when leaving the Vatican Museums. Push off the bold advances of catchy waiters, zigzag between invading terraces, catch your breath between two scents of burnt pizzas and industrial tomato sauce. And then a facade that looks different, an elegant card, a discreet frame. Is this the [...]

Bistrot 64 – Rome – Italy Visit Review: 16.4

A Japanese in Roma.

Third and last of the Michelin star restaurants tested during our trip to Rome. Probably the most successful even if we always find something to say! I'm a little perfectionist on the edges! First of all, we are at the limits of the pillars of Hercules, in the north of Rome, well above Villa Borghese. As for the setting, we are more in the concept of bistronomy since the walls are [...]

Gli Angeletti – Rome – Italy Visit Review: 7.8

Tourist trap.

This is exactly the kind of restaurant that makes you happy to subscribe to my blog! Nice terrace ... and then it's all! The waiter is like a bear with sore head. After many courtesies, I managed to snatch a smile at the end of the meal. Miracle! It is true that the Vatican is next door. Mix platter of antipasti without any interest, pasta "meh", al dente but it's nothing at all, duck [...]

Lancetta – Paris – France Visit Review: 13.2

Nice pasta.

Small Italian restaurant that offers excellent pasta dishes and a pleasant terrace.   Lancetta Penne mushrooms   Those with figs melt my friend. A good little Puglia wine, a modern decor, a nice terrace to enjoy the sun. The only shadow on the board, a tiramisu that deserves to be perfected. Check of 52,50 euros for [...]

Quartier Latin – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.8

Italy in Mouffetard.

The first thing you notice when you enter is that the place is managed by real Italians, which is becoming rare in Paris. The boss is friendly and very attentive to the staff take care of customers. The products are fresh and quality. A brunch provided on Sunday. A perfect terrace in summer. And a room in the basement. A nice stop in the district of Mouf [...]

Pastar – Prague – Czech republic Visit Review: 15.4

Italy in Prague

At first, I was not really hot to go to an Italian restaurant in Prague. But the front of the grocery store with products that seemed authentic convinced me. And I do not regret it. Beef tartar, mushroom bruschetta as a starter, gnocchi with venison ragout, and tagliatelle tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella, crème brûlée grapefruit and apple pie. Two Moscatto with peach syrup as an [...]

It was not expected that I eat Italian in Germany but I only had that desire tonight. Good fresh products, a very smiling service. A very honest price. Not even a tourist [...]
