A popular, busy Italian restaurant on the rue des Martyrs in Paris’s 9th arrondissement, FUXIA offers classic Italian food at reasonable prices. We were 3 for lunch, and eschewing starters, we ate well, with good food, and more than healthy portions.
Between us, we had a rigatoni siciliana for €12, a lasagne carne for €13.50 (very substantial and possibly overly generous on the tomato sauce) and a delicious risotto roquette for €15 which was far too copious to finish.
Rapid service, a friendly waiter eager to try out his English, though we suspected he was flirting with our youngest and prettiest diner, and a sort-of view of Sacré Coeur from our pavement table, if you craned your neck a bit.
All the elements you need for a brisk, no-nonsense summer lunch.
Total bill for 3, with 3 mains, 1 Orangina and 1 coffee = €46
