Le Bocconi restaurant in Paris’ 8th arrondissement just a few steps from the bustling Champs-Elysees is a quiet, family-run Italian restaurant with all the style of a Venetian eaterie and all the warmth of the Italian sun. Highly honoured Neapolitan chef Ciro Polge reigns in the kitchen creating his regional Italian specialties like white truffle risotto, rosemary-infused osso bucco, freshly-made pasta dishes and famous tiramisu. Brother Paolo Polge oversees the dining room with verve and energy. A mixed clientele of business people, politicians, artists and fashion folk crowd the smart, Venetian style dining room with its sophisticated sandy colours with its floor tiled in stone from Mount Etna and the heated terrace outside. The wine list reflects the best of the Italian regions. You’ll arrive as a customer and leave as a friend.
