Trip Report Great italian in the 7th, Paris.

'Les bonnes adresses de Whathello à Paris'

I usually get good french addresses by my french friends, but this time it was a US friend who brought me there : who else but a US citizen would go to an italian restaurant in Paris ?
I must make here a terrible confession : I do have american friends. I know, I know, it is very bad but he is a great guy. Actually I even have several american friends. I shouldn't. But still...

Anyway, the restaurant is located in the 7th not far from Eiffel tower. The atmosphere is cozy. We had a round table for the 5 of us, the staff is very wecoming - they are all italians, but still likeable too (I will not confess here that I also have some italian friends, I will save it for later).

So we had some prosecco whilst waiting for our US friends caught in the traffic (welcome in France a day of strike...). Then we ordered a Chianti reserva Antinori and looked at the menu.

Everybody enjoyed their dishes - I took the suggestion : pasta with truffles, 'flambéed' with bas Armagnac and impregnated with parmiggiani. Aaaaaah. Fabulous. And the show is worth it : they take a full cheese, put the Armagnac, burn it, and put the pasta in the cheese to get the sauce and cheese with it. Did I say it was extraordinary good ?

Then a dessert (took the suggestion, forgot what it was, but quite good), we skipped grappa.
We are civilized people, we can behave. So we had Lagavullin 16 years instead ;-)

I think it must have cost between 80 and 100 € per person - I didn't pay, my US friend did pay - that is the reason why he is my friend !

So in all honesty, one of my top meals in Paris, for quite a reasonable price (you can get it to reasonable if you don't take the digeo and drink less wine than we did).
