This little Italian épicerie-à-manger has just a handful of tables and plenty of heart. Plan to eat simple and product-driven fare and to drink whatever Pietro recommends.

Reviews of interest

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2011) “I’m filled with gratitude that a place like La Retro’Bottega exists: a comfortable, soulful cave-à-manger with a refreshing, vegetable-driven menu and a masterful selection of well-priced French and Italian natural wines.”

Food Intelligence (2011) “De cet élan vers le passé l’on recueille l’inventaire : huile d’olive, riz risotto, Frizzy Pazzy, Pecorino, miroirs 19ème siècle, vins Nature ou pas…On y grignote et on y boit au verre, au culot, à toutes heures, dedans, dehors.”

Le Figaro (2011) “…généreux à dispenser sérieux classiques et habiles traverses de flacons, charcuteries, fromages et autres joyeusetés solaires. Un bel appétit de bordel ambiant!”

  1. I recently found the piece of paper that led me to Retro Bottega in 2011 and ever since then I have had it on my to do list to write a review. This was my best meal in soooo long. I loved everything about it. I was there with my husband and three boys and we all found something to eat. The raspberry and cheese of somekind dessert was out of this world. I loved the owners too. So friendly, so casual. I think we sat on wine crates, but I loved it. My husband and I ate every last morsal on our plates of what they served us. I hope that if I ever return to Paris that they are still there.

  2. Update: Retro’Bottega is currently closed on sundays and mondays. But its as good nd enjoyable as reported by everyone.
