Nesteled in the historic surroundings of the Passage des Panoramas, Racines, an Italian bistro, has been redefining the culinary scene in Paris since 2007. Chef Simone Tondo, the visionary behind Racines, breathed new life into the space, earning it the unique title of "Bistrattoria" by the prestigious Fooding guide—a perfect blend of his grandmother Marisa's traditional recipes and the contemporary charm of Parisian bistros.

In a spectacular turn of events in 2019, Racines achieved remarkable milestones. The esteemed Michelin Guide awarded Racines its first star, acknowledging the restaurant's commitment to excellence. Stephanie Crockford, the welcoming face behind Racines, was honored with the Hôtesse de l'année award at the prestigious Omnivore festival.

Racines is more than a restaurant; it's a celebration of everyday life. The culinary team sources the finest Italian and French produce, crafting dishes that tell the story of the seasons through intense and flavorful ingredients. The menu, inspired by the culinary traditions of Sardinia, Italy, and Paris, places the customer at the heart of the gastronomic experience.

The restaurant has garnered praise for its fantastic hospitality and its commitment to serving dishes that are not only beautiful and delicious but also created with real, honest, and robust flavors.
