Recommended by

Welcome to Chez Marius, a kind of «neo-venetian» osteria to quote the famous gastronomic critic Gilles Pudlowski. I enjoy having lunch and diner there for several reasons: first, the extreme freshness of the ingredients (for example, the tuna carpaccio, baba ganoush and green beans in vinaigrette). Then, this incredible marrow bone covered with beef tartare, which is the specialty of the house and the only dish that never leaves the menu. Finally and above all, the smile of Cédric, amazing director of the place.

Fulvio

4 Rue de Poitou

4 Rue de Poitou, 75003 Paris, France

Fulvio is a cozy Italian restaurant that has been serving traditional Sardinian and Italian dishes for over 30 years. Known for its al dente pasta with a variety of forty sauces including carbonara, bolognese, truffle cream, and bottarga, the restaurant also offers a range of other dishes like antipasti, escalopes, and tiramisu. Frequented by a diverse crowd including VIPs, musicians, and sports personalities, Fulvio is a testament to the timeless appeal of authentic Italian cuisine.

Recommended by

The extraordinary Fulvio (as magical as the Sardinian version of Harry Potter's Hagrid) is worth the trip to his tiny pasta restaurant in the heart of the Marais. Since 1989, his pasta is al dente and drowned in so many various sauces (around forty in total, including carbonara, bolognese, truffle cream and bottarga). Trust me on this one : these pasta dishes have very few equals in Paris. There's nothing exceptional about the place, but it seems to stand the test of time. Anyway, Fulvio doesn't pretend to become a trendy place: "I don't have the look or the age to do something trendy" he says. Another thing you need to know is that VIPs come here in droves. Actors, musicians, sportsmen and politicians from France and abroad regularly meet here. Including chef Alain Ducasse (twenty Michelin stars in total). He quickly became a regular, and one day, chef Ducasse told Fulvio a phrase that still echoes between the stone walls of his restaurant: "There's no other like you."
