Il Carpaccio - Paris

Il Carpaccio is the only Michelin-star Italian restaurant in Paris, located at the very lovely and trendy Le Royal Monceau Hotel by Raffles Hotels. It first opened its doors 30 years ago, and has since established itself as a true institution. Drawing on his heritage, Chef Roberto Rispoli gives a very personal interpretation of traditional family recipes from Italy’s many regions, using the best and freshest Italian produce.

Originally from Pompei near Naples, Roberto has revived Il Carpaccio under the direction of Executive Chef Laurent Andre, with superstar pastry chef Pierre Herme bringing classic Italian desserts to a whole new level, and Head Sommelier Manuel Peyrondet (Meilleur Ouvrier de France and Best Sommelier in France) sharing his passion for Italian wines.

The intimate dining room draws on a Sicilian baroque style with an extravagant shell decor on the walls, opening onto a lovely glass conservatory drenched in light. Two contemporary artists have created unique works of art that add to the Italian theme.
