Little Italy Trattoria
A modern interior with blond wood and translucent plastic chairs sets the stage for trendy Parisians and tourists who might want a switch from traditional French fare. The family-owned and operated Little Italy Trattoria serves generous portions of fresh pasta and salads in Le Marais. Usually overflowing with people, the rather small restaurant is a more economical alternative to Georges in the Centre Pompidou across the street. Large portions of Bolognese specialties are usually shared by boisterous crowds, such as spaghetti carbonara and orecchiette alla siciliana (pasta with vegetables in cream sauce).
