Review by Jeanne Cummings

Very bright, not crowded, small, good Italian wine - 6 euros for a nice size glass. They serve a small antipasto appetizer with bread when you sit down. I ordered pasta, but when I saw the salad someone else got I changed to a salad. It was excellent - 12 euros. artichoke, fresh Parmesan cheese, goat cheese with some balsamic vinegar drizzled on it, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms. The atmosphere was simple and I'm guessing that it gets crowded later in the week.

A weekly business traveler to Paris via her home of Chicago, Jeanne Cummings seeks out restaurants with good food and good wine for around 20 euros.
