First Review by Aurelia

Delicious food in a concept store - Edit

I've visited Carmen Ragosta several times in the last couple of years. There are just three tables, so it's preferred if you call ahead to reserve one.

The menu is just one plate consisting of small bites; but it is always fresh and yummy.
Desserts are also delicious. Besides the tiramisu, which is excellent, the tarts and cakes made are also worth the visit.

Carmen herself is in charge of the cooking and service; and she's always very friendly and attentive.

I'd recommend paying a visit whenever in Paris.

dining in a dress shop. - Edit

The host was very friendly and the food was very different. She doesn't try to make fake meat, just yummy vegan food. Each day is a different plate with a variety of cooked and raw salads.

A unique experience! - Edit

I went to this place with colleague for lunch and walked into what looked like a shop with tables for dining in the middle! Carmen asked us how hungry we were, and then disappeared into the kitchen, bringing out a mixed plate for each of us, and explained what we were eating and how it had been prepared. The food was very well cooked and seasoned with unique and delicious flavour combinations.

I ate: Seaweed/tomato cake, quinoa risotto with roasted bell peppers, homemade turmeric "cheese" on delicious fresh bread, marinated tofu and tiramisu for dessert.

What a nice experience!

One of my favorite places in Paris - Edit

Incredible vegan food and beautiful boutique! My husband and I tried the main plate of food that had a variety of delicious options, as well as the tiramisu. I have always been a huge tiramisu fan, but after going vegan, I have had trouble finding a good non-dairy one... until tasting the one at Carmen's! We're going back to Paris in a couple of weeks and are already planning on stopping by to eat more tiramisu!

A lovely vegan place within a clothes boutique - Edit

We loved this little vegan restaurant which is part of a clothes boutique. Carmen gave us a very warm reception, and very quickly served us a delicious vegan meal followed by a dessert "to go". We wish we had more time to savour everything, but we were in a hurry to catch Eurostar to London...

Lovely brunch with great desserts - Edit

We were very happy to get the chance to enjoy a brunch-plate at this clothes' store /restaurant.

The owner was very nice and the food was great - nice tofu, salads, home-made cheese and other small portions of different delicious dishes combined on one big plate. After this lovely plate of deliciousness we had two great desserts - the tiramisu and the chocolate dessert - also a great combination!

I very much recommend this place if you visit Paris!

Pros: tasty, calm

A warm and wonderful brunch - Edit

Our visit to Paris did not coincide with one of Carmen's famous evening dinners (not always on offer, so look into it before you go) so, instead, we went there for brunch.

Carmen is a delightful and warm host. She prepares all the food with great care, skill and inventiveness. The flavours are superb as is the quality.

The brunch we had was a mix of raw and cooked and all home and expertly made. We were lucky enough to have both her superb desserts, the inimitable tiramisù and an equally delicious raw chocolate mousse (with no refined sugars).

We loved the setting, which is in her clothing shop. The clothing is great too, with each a one-off piece made one size generous yet tailored enough to suit a wide variety of body types. The neighbourhood is really fun too.

Pros: Delicious food, Wonderful host, Great ambiance

Cons: None really!

A great experience - Edit

The owner was very friendly and considerate and made me feel welcome. At first I was a little put off by the price but the plate I got was a piece of art, the food is organic and made fresh and there was a good amount of it. All the dishes were creative, delicious and beautifully presented. It's clear to see that Carmen takes a lot of pride in what she does and genuinely wants people to enjoy it. The tiramisu was TO DIE FOR. I also liked that there wasn't any faux meat.

Pros: Delicious, fresh, creative food, Great service, Clean restaurant

GREAT!!! - Edit

My boyfriend and I (from England) had a lovely brunch here last Sunday. All the food was delicious, the brunch plate had lots of different flavours and both our deserts were amazing. As all the reviews say the tiramisu is awesome but the chocolate pudding was really super tasty too!
Such a wonderful place, vegan food and a boutique all in one!
We recommend going here :)

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff

Not only tiramisu :) - Edit

I loved this place!
It totally made my day and compensated for the heavy rain and cold outside. Tiramisu was out of this world! I've always found the alcohol in the traditional version rather annoying, so Carmen's "virgin" tiramisu won my heart, stomach and taste buds immediately :) My boyfriend had a raw chocolate cake which was also brilliant - rich in flavour and not that sweet. While we were having deserts I picked nice shoes xD, a purse and even tried a hand-made skirt from Carmen's own clothing collection. Then we also had a great plate of food. All in all - that was a great evening spent with Carmen and her adorable dog :) Hope it won't be too long till we are back again! Thank you Carmen!

Vegan tiramisu and fine italian cuisine - Edit

This place is worth a visit! Carmen is very friendly and passionate about its italian vegan cuisine. The food is excellent and fine. Every dish is a burst of flavour. Everything is homemade, organic and fresh. The vegan tiramisu is just amazing. Portions are sufficient but not huge. The place is very pleasant and surprising since it is also a clothes shop.

Pros: very tasty homemade food, vegan tiramisu, nice place, very friendly owner

Cons: not huge portion

The tiramisu! - Edit

I had a great experience here. Novel to be eating lunch while people are coming in to buy clothes. Carmen is so friendly it feels more like you're having a meal at a friend's house. Well worth seeking out.
