This restaurant is by rising star Chef Denny Imbroisi, a true Italian from Calabre who makes his home in Paris. The restaurant is named after his sister, Ida, who, according to the Chef, more or less raised him while he worked alongside his father in Italian kitchens. Here you will find refined and slightly Frenchified Italian cuisine which means a bit on the lighter side, with accents of some of the best virgin olive oil - made expressly for the Chef - you'll ever get to taste. He's also fond of white balsamic vinegar and truffles. Don't even think about not indulging in dessert. Here the signature after-dinner sweet is the Capucc'IDA, a chocolate-coffee flavored mousse with a ganache base served in a coffee cup and eaten with a spoon. Other indulgences: the housemade foccaccia, served warm upon seating. And the Italian wine selection. Makes you want to go on a discovery wine trip from the top to the very South of Italy.
- Italian: "Chef Imbroisi is set to open his second restaurant in Paris imminently (at time of writing). He has earned his stripes, passing through the illustrious kitchens if Chef William Ledeuil, doing a stint as sous-chef at the Jules Verne and even working for Chef Mauro Colagreco in Menton. For low-key talent and super good eats, this is the Italian Trattoria-Bistro of choice for Parisians. And the location is convenient to St. Germain des Pres and also Montparnasse."
- Best for Italian Because: There are some chefs who have equal amounts of humility, good-natured warmth and talent. This is one of them.
