Italian Food in Paris?

Going to Paris for a week with my husband, is there a great Italian Restaurant in Paris, in case we want a change one night?

    Pasta e Basta, on the esplanade des Olympiades. Sormani is not authentic Italian but is quite lovely. Heard very good things about Cibus, but haven't been yet.

      "Great" I don't know, but L' Enoteca on rue charles v is good...but you're paying a lot for food that would cost you perhaps a quarter of the price on the other side of the Alps. Save your money and take the trip to Italy.

        Guess we will give Italian a pass until we are there this summer! Thanks for the reply

        Great Italian in Paris will not be found; There must be many hundreds of Italian spots in the central core, so do a search near where you are staying. We like La Taverna, in the 7th, it's quite good but nothing like the great Italian restaurants in NYC, BOS or SFO.
