Tout près des Halles et de la majestueuse Église Saint-Eustache a éclot une nouvelle table italienne imaginée par les Corinti, un frère et une sœur déjà derrière Meriggio. De bons produits dénichés après un long parcours à la rencontre des producteurs et vignerons italiens donnent une cuisine authentique à deux vitesses. Au rez-de-chaussée, c’est grignotage intelligent autour d’un bon verre façon bacari, les bars à tapas à la vénitienne. À l’étage, dans de luxueux fauteuils turquoises autour de tables élégantes, on découvre une cuisine italienne plus gastronomique. Au programme, tartare de veau, sardines et câpres, taglioni au homard nappées d’une bisque relevée, gnocchis de potiron au parmesan ou poulpe entier grillé et crème de pomme de terre.

INSIDER tip

Ne passez pas à côté du dessert signature, un cigare en trompe-l’œil construit autour d’une riche ganache gianduja et d’une onctueuse crème anglaise.

We were late but they were charming about it. We thought the starters and deserts good but quite limited choice. My rabbit with pasta was very disapointing, quite dry and lacked flavour.

This was our first time at Damigiana and we can thoroughly recommend it. It is excellent Italian cooking, done with care and real quality. My wife said that her bruschetti were the best she'd ever tasted, while my plate of salamis as a starter was both large and delicious. I didn't think that I really liked mortadella until I tasted this one, delicate and full of flavour. We both had the pappardelle with rabbit ragu as our main and really enjoyed it. Their approach if you want wine by the glass is for you to describe the character or region that you want and they'll then say what bottles they have open. I said I wanted something fairly big from Sicily and the waiter opened it specially - it was excellent. There was a very large table (c. 20 people) occupying most of the upstairs room where we were seated, but at no point did we feel we were being neglected as far as service and attention was concerned. This is a lovely, relaxed restaurant with good, friendly service, and excellent food. Highly recommended.

This place is really amazing. We loved the food, service and deco over there! The waitresses were very helpful and patience for explaining the menu to us. It s my third time to go there and still surprised me! Definitely worth going if you are up for some decent times and indeed, the fresh good Italian food.

Had the Tagliatele with honey
and nuts but it lacked taste. A bit of salt would have helped. The lemon cheesecake was just amazing.

We tasted everything in the 5-course menu. The staff was very friendly and server explained each dish well. Everything was amazing, happy to discover this kind of Italian taste. To cap off, the crew also sang a special birthday song for my friend.

If you are nervous of French restaurants, being a tourists, this place will take your worry away. They have an English menu and are very welcoming and helpful. The food was fantastic. I cannot recommend this place any more. Must try. Came from Chicago, whenever I return I will be back!

Staff very welcoming and described menu items clearly with wine suggestions. My partner and I shared the best Burrata appetizer we ever had while she had a great item from the pasta course and I had the tuna from the second course. The bottle of Via Condotto complemented all the dishes. We shared the cheese cake for dessert that was light and airy. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Ironically, this Italian restaurant was the best part of Paris when I visited.

First, they speak English which is extremely useful when you don’t speak the native language.

Second, the people and atmosphere were the most welcoming I experienced at any restaurant. My girlfriend and I sat outside and had Mateo as a waiter. I couldn’t say enough great things about him; at no point did I ever feel rushed, and he was more than happy to chat about Italy and anything/everything else. It’s no exaggeration to say Mateo was the only polite, pleasant waiter I interacted with in my four days visiting Paris.

Finally, the food was unparalleled. I split three courses and a bottle of wine with my girlfriend. We also had a coffee afterward. The entire bill was under 100 Euro which is cheaper than an airport meal. Moreover, the food was probably the best Italian food I’ve ever eaten.

The cured meats will beat any meats you’ll try in the US. The pasta was made in-house and rolled in Parmesan; it was as thick as an earthworm yet the lightest pasta I’ve ever eaten. (My girlfriend is a twig and was still able to eat an entire bowl of pasta before the main course). As our main dish we ordered the Angus steak with Truffle. Best steak I’ve ever eaten.

I could literally write a novel on how fantastic this place was both in general and compared to other establishments in Paris. If you are in the area, get to Damigiana.
