Oenosteria, a piece of paradise in Paris

It was last year that I discovered one of my top favourite Italian restaurants in Paris, Oenosteria. I was still living at Boulevard Saint Germain in the Odéon area and in the end of August when the restaurant opened I was very curious and went there with a friend to discover their menu. As soon as we had tried their mindblowing, creamy burrata we knew it was pure love. Usually we share two starters, always a plate with burrata (the BEST served in Paris! )and asparagus, tomatoes and a plate with prosciutto or breasola with wild rockets, parmesan, pine nuts and lemon and we share a maincourse, usually lasagna or pasta. Their food is made of love and you can tell that easily when eating there. It’s pure, fresh and almost everything comes from Italy. Everything is made simple, the cheese and the charcuteries are served on wooden cutting boards, the menu of the day is written on a chalk board (in Italian), there is a Industrial atmosphere with elements with rivets in the ceiling and tables that resembles school tables with random chairs. I’ve been eating regularly at the restaurant since last year and I go there a at least once or twice a week and by now I’ve become friend with the very charming and funny staff :-)

It’s not possible to reserve a table, but if it’s crowded you can always have a glass of wine and sit outside until there is a free table. They’re open from 10 – midnight and you find the restaurant on a quiet sidestreet to Boulevard Saint Germain:
