With its loooong zinc-topped bar, speckled tile floors and moveable blackboard with bistro dishes scribbled out on it, À Moro (a sort of mantecatura of the word “love” in Italian, and owner Benjamin Moro’s last name) ticks off all the boxes for a dreamy neighborhood spot! Teamed up in the kitchen with Adrien Tran (ex-Verre Volé in Paris), the former Ourea chef stiches together Italian fare at amico prices every day at lunch (€24 for the fixed-price menu): first-rate vitello tonnato prepared with thinly sliced veal in a tuna sauce, topped with capers and fresh tarragon; pasta calamarata that was slightly overcooked, which was made up for by a fabulous fennel sausage ragù gently spiced and simmered for 24 hours; before an erogenous chocolate ganache dessert with olive oil, crushed Piedmont hazelnuts and flaky salt. All you need to fall head over heels in love! // Gwen Jacquère
