Just down the street from the shopping center at the Place D'Italie is a small restaurant that has a strong local following yet serves the tourists and expats with the same care. The menu and wine list match this description - small but with care....More

Not counting last year, when we didn’t come to Paris, we have eaten at L’Avant Gout, once or twice per year for ten years. In terms of excellence, know what to expect. I should have been warned by the change in menu and the absence...More

Delicious food, Well priced wine list and friendly service made for a lovely dinner. The decor could do with a freshen up but it is a lovely neighbourhood restaurant.

A few steps from Place d'Italie on a quiet street. This small and charming restaurant is worth a detour and won't break the bank. Seated quickly and with a smile, we opted for the set lunch menu, a steal at 38 Euros. The atmosphere was...More
