Freshly-made pasta and authentic desserts are all part of the charm at this bang-on Italian spot.
Inside Bocca Rossa in the 5th arrondissement, wine bottles line the wall and the small kitchen sports the reassuring sign ‘Make pasta not war’, suggesting that the visitor is in good hands. And you are: the pasta here is made fresh every morning as the base for first-rate dishes, such as the sublime spaghetti with a tomato, olive and ricotta sauce (€10.90 for the day’s special), that go perfectly with a glass of wine (€3 for a Lombardy red). End the meal on a perfect, authentic sweet note with a dessert like tiramisu made with dark chocolate.
