L?altro: "Simple, elegant and Yummy" L'Altro Tip by thinking

L'Altro, Paris: 2 reviews and 1 photos

This charming Italian bistro, on one of our favorite St. Germain side streets, is simple, elegant, and yummy. Decorated in chic black & white, a la Italienne, with industrial vintage barstools, lamps, and metro tiles, the dishes are slightly upscale twists on Italian favorites.

Reserve a table to get one in front, as the floor to ceiling windows make you feel like you are on a terrace. Or sit in the back and watch the chefs go to work in the glass-enclosed kitchen.

Favorite Dish: We loved the tuna with olive crust [20 euros], grilled zucchini and mozzarella salad [9 euros], pears stuffed with gorgonzola and soaked in Chianti on a rocket salad [9 euros], and the best was the last?an amazing crème di limona [9 euros] topped with berries.
