A little bit of Italy is served in Paris in Saint-Germain's Marcello restaurant.
In the heart of the quintessentially Parisian neighbourhood of Saint-Germain is one of the city's favourite Italian restaurants, Marcello. Hidden on Rue Mabillon, the restaurant is hidden under a canopy of trees and accessed by a set of stairs, inviting diners to an almost underground haven where its quaint patio reveals itself. Once seated at the popular table you will be served Italian fare favourites such as arancini, eggplant parmigiana and gnocchi, and with the freshest ingredients used diners will not be disappointed. The eatery celebrates everyone's preferred cuisine and its versatility, with vegetarians finding equal choice to their non-vegetarian counterparts on the menu, and while vegans may find it less accommodating, there are a few options including a fresh baby spinach salad with capers, celery and almond flakes. For dessert lovers there is no going past the tiramisu, one of the best in the city, perfectly creamy and its coffee flavour isn't too overpowering. This is a great table for a relaxed outdoor lunch or dinner without the, at times, annoying foot traffic.
