The Swann and Vincent is a friendly and reasonably priced Trattoria, the traditional cuisine varies on the seasons, the menu is all Italy from Parma to Milan via Rome and Venice.

Located in the heart of the antique district of the Bastille, this friendly restaurant is on a quiet street overlooking the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, behind the Opera Bastille.
With its Moleskin red benches, tasteful decoration and counter dating back to the 19th century, this place is sold out almost every night and attracts Paris celebrities seeking to dine in discretion, loyal local customers, actors, writers, designers, musicians ...
Here, both regulars and newcomers alike enjoy the marinated black olives while perusing the menu full of classical Italian delicacies.
During the meal, the home-made bread delicately perfumed with Mediterranean fragrances rekindles our taste buds before moving on to a wide variety of antipasti, cold meat cuts, pasta al dente cooked to suit your preference ...
But the moment of consecration is to come : the dessert! Tiramisu, Panna Cotta (vanilla cream with red fruit sauce), perfect coffee or chocolate cake ... One wonders if tomorrow you will be able to eat anything else !
An anecdote: the name Swann and Vincent is not a homage to Proust or Van Gogh, but are the names of owner’s two sons, whose cheeky face are painted on the wall of the garage opposite the restaurant.
