Located on Rue Bergère, Pastore (“shepherd” in Italian) has more in common with a hyper-connected hipster than with summer pastures. Inside this osteria which boasts all the markers of urban coolitude (waxed concrete floors, cleverly stripped walls, industrial marble tables, neon suspension lamps), the creative pasta chef and Palermitain, Lorenzo Sciabica (ex-Osteria Ferrara), dresses up famous Italian classics! Served à la carte the day we went for lunch: a graphically pleasing vitello tonnato with a light siphoned mayonnaise, embellished by a medallion of caper flowers and grated egg mimosa; Sicilian-inspired linguine with sardines, raisins and pine nuts, accessorized by raw romanesco broccoli; before a stunning zeppelin of yogurt semifreddo with blackberry coulis and a redcurrant biscuit. // A.A.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s an Italian-centric wine list: a Piedmont white from Tibaldi (€7 a glass), a Tuscan red from Antonio Camillo (€32 a bottle), a Tuscan Pinot noir from Podere Della Civettaja (€69)…

PRICE: À la carte €40-54.
