Bellagio is an Italian restaurant in Ternes district, next to Hotel Saint Cyr, the Hotel la Fayette and méridien étoiles. It's a good choice to get away from hotel food as they serve classic Italian food, pizza, pasta, and some rice, but I'm not so keen. It's open late and is in a neighborhood with theaters and conference rooms and so you can go to eat later.
La Pergola d'Italie is a northern Paris restaurant that serves homemade Italian cuisine. A 10.20 euros menu includes a first and second course and dessert or cheese.

Many salads and vegetarian options, with goat cheese, blue cheese, egg ... At night I love to be around this place, at noon it is good, with fast service.
La Scala is a small neighborhood Italian restaurant in Bac Saint Germain. It's in a pretty expensive neighborhood but offers good Italian home cooking at reasonable prices.

La Campagnola is an Italian restaurant in Montparnasse with a lot of charm, good food, and the kids who attend are friendly. I went with a group and we were given a few tables and plenty of space to be together. The owner had prepared the meal for a long time and everything came pretty quickly. The portions were large and we ate well. We did not like the wine but we went for the cheap wine and that's usually not a good idea. In total the set menu with drinks came to20 euros/person, with a good dessert and coffee. I would plan for a romantic evening but it was good with a group and we were treated well.
The Monteverdi is an Italian restaurant on the rue Princesse, near metro Mabillon. It's a quiet place to go to dinner for a date or maybe with a small groups of friends. It is a small room with a very nice antique decor, dark tones, and soft lighting. There are book collections on the walls, it reminds me of someone's living room. They serve very great dishes, traditional cuisine at reasonable prices. There is pasta with shells, amazing risottos, and a nice wine list. The dishes are delicately prepared. The full dinner with wine comes to about 40 euros per person, which is really good for this touristy neighborhood. There is a limited menu with a dish of the day and delicious desserts.
Alfredo Positano is an Italian restaurant in the rue Princesse, in the neighborhood of Saint Germain. It is faster to reach it by getting off at Mabillon on line 10 or the line 4 Odéon stop. There are several restaurants on the street, this is a bit more popular than Monteverdi and a bit more expensive. You eat at very small tables, and generally at the end of the night you know half the people who are eating with you. The place is always full and there is a slightly bohemian student environment. The antipasti dishes can be shared between two or three people, and there is also a large selection of homemade pasta with vegetables, seafood or meat in red sauce, all very delicious. The bill will come to about 20 to 30 euros per person. the problem is you can not make a reservation and if there are many people you'll have to wait long time before getting a table.
Corso is an Italian coffee chain (there are 2 or 3 in Paris) this one is in Franz Liszt Square, opposite Saint Vincent de Paul church. I like this lively and popular neighborhood and Corso is a good place for brunch, lunch or an afternoon coffee. It was recently opened by the Costes brothers and is different from others because it's more intimate, has a large terrace for eating out and it's not as fashionable. There are books and drawings on the walls, modern decor and it's welcoming. The prices are a bit expensive, beef grilled 20 euros, cod 10 euros, pasta 17 euros, fried calamari 20 euros, Sunday brunch 23 euros and a bottle of wine about 25 euros. The lounge music recalls the other cafes and hotel Costes.
