We wanted to eat here one evening. The lights were on, the door was unlocked so in we went. A man was lying flat out on a bench watching TV. He didn't get up, just turned his head when we asked if they were open. He just looked at us and said " only for family."
Needless to say we didn't stay.
Why have the lights on, including the sign over the door and the door unlocked if you are not actually open or prepared to accept customers?
Reading other reviews it seems that others had much better experiences but unfortunately we will not be trying to eat there again, no matter how good the menu or the food.

A tiny kosher restaurant specializing in Italian food in the embassy district near the Arc de Triomphe, this place would have been fine, except... The food and wine were very good, actually, but the men - our waiter and his friends - conversing loudly nearby in such disparaging and contemptuous terms about women (including their own sisters) spoiled our appetite. They must not have known, or cared, that we could understand. There is no male privilege like faith-based male privilege...

Good food and good service in this kosher restaurant. Not only pizza but also very good fish. Tasty and sufficient even if you are XXL. Kids are welcome and it's also a very decent place for business lunch or dinner.

Arrived at 7.00 as opening time listed on site. Had to hang around - in a not very nice neighbourhood - for 40 mins. before finally opened. Not a good start! My pizza and my husband's risotto were excellent . Our starter of fried mozzarella while it looked attractive was quite flavourless. Having said that we were horrified when we got the bill - it was shockingly expensive. In spite of fact Cosy Italia was hard to find and our other comments we would love to give it another try but NOT with those prices. There are LOTS of other Kosher restaurants in Paris!

This is a very good Italian restaurant in this posh area of Paris. Being a Kosher restaurant, it serves dairy and fish products, according to the Jewish dietary laws. The pizzas are excellent. Pasta is superb. Their Speculoos Tiramisu dessert is an absolute must. Great wines by the class. Service is very friendly. A must go in rue Lauriston.
