At the restaurant Le Fellini, the Italian cuisine speaks of « La Dolce Vita »
At the italian restaurant Le Fellini we celebrate the „Dolce Vita“ (sweet life). This Italian restaurant is located on rue de l’Arbre sec since 30 years and just 700 meters from the Relais des Halles.
The decoration is a little bit old-fashioned and assumed by the restaurant owner Efisio Mannai, his attitude is not to „make a fuss“.
He came from Sardinia via Rome where he was studying and practicing the Italian cuisine, then in 1996 Efisio Mannai bought the restaurant in Paris. Since then, he perpetuates an authentic traditional Italian cuisine.
All food is cooked from the high-quality products coming from Rungis, the first fresh produce market in the world.
The service is friendly, hospitality and convivial.
The tables are nicly set.
At Fellini, we love La dolce Vita.
The menu offers a wide range of classic Italian starters from 15€ to 20€ then a wide range of pasta dishes from 16€ to 32€, from penne arrabiata to taglionis with scampi and artichokes.
Meat and fish dishes range from 30€ for veal medallions fried with lemon, to 30€ for sea bass filet with fresh tomatoes, olives and capers.
You can also choose the 28€ menu, which is offered for lunch and dinner, with appetizer, main course and dessert (see menu).
The sea bass and salmon carpaccio are served with arugula, green beans, and basil. The fish is delivered every day from Rungis. Very fresh.
San Daniele ham, Bologna Mortadella, Spianata di Calabrese (a slightly spicy flatbread sausage) and Bologna salami are sliced thin. A beautiful plate that can be eaten without hunger.
Nous avons ensuite commandé un filet de dorade à la carte et des pennes aux quatre fromages au menu.
A fillet of wild sea bream that was caught in the open sea, under the sauce of lemons, Greek olives and date tomatoes from France. It’s served with different season vegetables.
The penne with 4 cheeses is a very hearty and caloric plate. Gorgonzola, Pecorino, Taleggio (Lombardi’s soft cheese) and Parmesan cheeses are combined in a creamy sauce to create a very tasty dish.
We ended our dinner with the light desserts.
Strawberries,raspberries and blueberries are topped with vanilla ice cream.
Two balls of lemon sorbet with fresh mint is the best choice to finish this very complete meal.
If you are not particularly keen on discovering the latest trendy restaurant but more interested in classic Italian cuisine made with fresh season products, if attention and hospitality are words that make sense to you, the place that should please you is the restaurant Le Fellini.
