A Gourmet Italian Restaurant in the 8th Arrondissement

The italian restaurant in Paris

We Love the Concept of This Chic New Spot in the Heart of the 8th, Located Right on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The Idea Behind L'Attilio: Offering a Gourmet Menu in an Ultra-Luxurious Setting with Impeccable Service, or, Alternatively, Italian Dishes à la Carte, with Signature Pasta and Comforting Small Bites. And There's Even a Gourmet Shop/Deli Worth Visiting on Its Own.

 

SUMPTUOUS DECOR, CHIC PASTA

This restaurant has a five-star hotel vibe. From the ceiling that seems to light up the room with countless chandeliers, to the beautiful bar with its green marble tops, copper walls, cream-colored textured carpets, and the interplay of textures between velvet and leather, the ambiance is set, hinting at an evening of elegance and refinement.

Chef Attilio Marrazzo set up shop in the former location of his mentor, Joël Robuchon, with the smart idea of offering a luxurious experience accessible to all budgets. Here, you can opt for one of three gourmet tasting menus (from €150 to €250), or you can choose from the à la carte dishes. It's the latter option that excites us the most, with dishes that evoke the flavors of Italy. Note: no matter your choice, every guest is served delicate amuse-bouche, including an adorable mini maritozzo with salmon that's simply irresistible.

Must-try dishes include the pizza with mortadella to share (€34), Black Angus beef ribs breaded with panko and fried (€35), beef carpaccio (€33), or vitello tonnato (€28), before diving into spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino, delightfully garlicky and spicy (€32), or guinea fowl tortellini with fresh herb chicken consommé (€35). Ready for dessert? We won't spoil the surprise of the format for the zuppa inglese della mamma and the tiramisù (€23). Pure delights!

 

THE GOURMET SHOP

You can't miss the impressive counter full of temptations when you enter the restaurant. Because L'Attilio is also a gourmet shop and deli, beloved by locals who come early to grab the house's signature flan. Other goodies include lemon yuzu tart (€10), panna cotta with red fruits (€4), almond hazelnut cantucci (€7), and tarama with blinis for aperitif (€10, €7). A special mention goes to Sophie Robuchon's lavender honey, proving that the family connection is never far away.

Open every day, Sunday to Wednesday from 10 AM to midnight, and Thursday to Saturday from 10 AM to 2 AM. The deli/pastry shop is open from 10:30 AM to 11:30 PM.
