Being Italian I am always skeptical when eating in an italian restaurant in Paris. This one was a pleasant surprise. I visited this restaurant on the occasion of a farewell dinner with a large party that occupied the whole place. It is in this kind...More

This was our third visit to Terra Nova and it didn't disappoint. I had the seafood linguine which was great, but the highlight for us are the two waiters, although they might also be the owners. They have such a natural way of making you...More

The ideal small restaurant that, when full, becomes lively and full of joi de vivre. Speak just a little simple Italian and the one-man-show waiter opens up, happy that you have done him the kindness of speaking in Italian.

Not proving the TripAdvisor reviews wrong, this place is superb. We stopped in for an early lunch. The waiter was awesome, but they don't speak English, French, or Spanish. Only Italian. The Italian-based clientele are all locals and seem more than happy to help. An...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
