Are Chefs de France & Tutto Italia similar restaurants?

I know chefs is french, and tutto is italian, but I see very similar dishes in both of these restaurants. Here are the similar dishes I see:

Chefs' Bread vs Tutto's Bread

Lasagna de Legumes vs Lasagna alla Bolognese

Gratin de Macaroni vs Fettuccini Vecchia Roma

Demi poulet fermier roti, pommes rissolees et tomate grillee vs Pollo al Forna

Filet de boeuf grille, sauce au poivre vert Gratin Dauphinois et haricots verts vs Filetto di Spada

Canard a l' orange, haricot verts et polenta vs Polenta Valsugana

Profiteroles au chocolat vs Copetta Sotto Bosco

Croustillant feuillantine, douceur au chocolat, glace noix de coco, tartare de banane vs Mocha Tiramisu

Assiette de sorbets du jour vs Gelati and Sorbetti

These are all the similarities I see. Can you please tell me if these are very similar dishes that I wrote or nothing like. Please help me?

Congratulations - You've discovered that what tastes good in one culture also tastes good in another!!!!

While the dishes may be similar they are also different. Each culture (even from those as geographically close as Italy and France) adjusts their cuisine according to what they have for their own local fresh ingredients. That's how the regional differentiation's of common dishes occurs.

In the actual restaurants you refer to, you'll find that even similar dishes are different. You'll also have a different dining experience.
