How can I restore some files from my duplicity backup excluding some directories/files ?

Does --include --exclude work along with restore ?

unfortunately not. in/exclude are not implemented in duplicity restore. you can however use --file-to-restore eg.

duplicity restore [--file-to-restore <relpath>] [--time <time>] <url> <target_folder>

as described in the man page [1] to restore a specific file/folder(recursively) only.
