Reviews of interest

Gilles Pudlowski (2011) “De jolis produits, cuisine juste, sait faire simple, composant des menus alertes, au gré de son inspiration et du marché…Le choix de vins est splendide.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “Jolie table qui sent la Toscane, les plats bien pensés et un brin sophistiqués par rapport à l’Italie qu’on a l’habitude de goûter à Paris. C’est goûteux, joli, hyper pro…”

Alexander Lobrano (2011) “…a terrific looking little restaurant…Exigent Italian food lovers at the table all, we agreed that this is a very good little restaurant and an especially good new option for Sunday night dinners.”

Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2011)”…cet ultime italien de la saison révèle une belle plante de trattoria toute en climat, soignant le naturel mais savamment campée sur des produits de haute extraction…”

  1. Let me continue: What was lacking in everything that had been prepared was “taste.” There were no tastes, there were no seasoning and even without seasoning, the raw product should have carried some characteristics of what the food offered was named after.

    Very sad. Very sad because Paris is a great city to eat in, but not in this restaurant.

  2. In a word: UNDERWHELMED! We have eaten at Jeanne A and thought it was good, so we tried Sassontondo, since it has the same ownership.

    The first thing I knew that was different (wrong) was the wine suggested by the server. I have been in the wine business in California and I have imported wines from burgundy. Perhaps I know a little about wines. Even so, when I am in a restaurant for the first time I always ask the server or La Sommelière, to recommend. Here, at Sassotondo, the first wine recommended was the most expensive on the menu. I would understand that in New York and California, but in Paris. Never in all my years coming here and living here has any French server or Sommelière done that. In fact, I have always marveled at the suggestions which were never the most expensive, but always the most correct for the food we were eating.

    As for the food …. allow me to quote DeNiro: “Forget about it!”
