The closest you’ll get to Sicily without leaving the périphérique.
On a little deserted street in the 16th arrondissement, in the middle of a glut of embassies, sits one of the best Sicilian restaurants in Paris. It resembles a typical trattoria on the inside – tiled walls, bustling waiters and a mouth-watering smell coming from the kitchen.
Dishes contain only locally sourced products; choose from starters like mussels in tomato sauce and aubergines and mozzarella bruschetta. The pasta dishes include Chi Milinciani (homemade tomato sauce, Sicilian aubergines, basil, dusted with salted ricotta) or marinated squid, cherry tomatoes, mint, rosemary, red onions and an incredible olive oil. All dishes are generous, simple and sublime, thanks to flavourful ingredients.
To finish this gastronomic voyage, heavenly vanilla bean panna cotta with red fruit coulis and fresh mint. The prices are high – the lunchtime three-course set menu is €31, or €60 à la carte. However, it would convert even the most stubborn of spendthrifts.
