Tavola di Gio
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Super busy in summer, its chic shaded terrace on Boulevard Raspail near the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris 14thdraws a near-constant crowd to Tavola Di Gio. Smart table service is offered both outside and inside this spacious traditional-meets-modern Italian restaurant. The spotless white and stone colour scheme shows an easy contemporary elegance, while the menu offers most of the traditional favourites - from spaghetti bolognese to seafood risotto via osso bucco - but isn’t limited to them. Desserts are lovely. Daily specials keep things fresh for Tavola Di Gio regulars. And there are a fair few of them. Better than average Italian wine list, too.
