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 [...]

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 [...]

Pipero Roma – Rome – Italy Visit Review: 15.8

Rediscovering bitterness.

Pipero Roma is the type of restaurant that requires a long enough article, I hope you will forgive me, because it is very interesting, both in the work and the mindset of chef Luciano Monosilio. A vision, quite original, but faced with constraints that require reflection. To put it simply, a willingness to work contrasting tastes by focusing much on bitter. But let's start from the [...]

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 [...]

Il Cottage (Dum Dum!) – Paris – France Visit Review: 8.8

For the setting.

As written on the welcome page of their website, everything is in the concept. Not once is what will be on your plate. This is normal, it is not what matters, except at the level of the bill because if it is not one of the best pizzas in Paris, it is probably one of the most expensive. We must pay tribute to the advertiser who invented the concept of "The unique Rooftop at the [...]

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 [...]

Le Café de l’Odéon – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,2

The terrace!

To say that the terrace is sold is obvious. But recognize that the plate is not neglected. The dishes have an Italian orientation and accompanied by a nice selection of wines to enjoy the sun. A few plates of quality charcuterie. The rates are those of the 6th arrondissement for a single [...]

L’Angolo 42 – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.8

Little Italy.

All products are fresh, of excellent quality and well worked. A simple little disappointment for the pizza, without much interest. But the other dishes are worth seeing. Better to book. And even then, there may be waiting. Very friendly [...]
