Manuela’s opinion

Why go there?

For Le Bistrot Italien's situation right on the bustling place Contrescarpe that, at night, is animated by concerts and bachelor parties.

For the restaurant's affordable and tasty dishes (pizzas, pastas, tiramisu, panna-cotta).

For Le Bistrot Italien's terrace, in summertime, facing the Contrescarpe fountain.

With who?

With a student who really needs to take his mind off things.

The regulars

Employees at lunchtime ; and a bunch of students for dinner.

Must-Eat dishes

Pastas and pizzas.

The wines

A Chianti wine to accompany these mediterranean dishes.

Best tables

On the small terrace, in summertime.
