For those seeking an Italian dining experience in Paris, La Briciola is a must stop-by. Tucked in a rather quieter and nondescript part of Le Marais, this small pizzeria serves traditional Napolitanas and Margheritas, some of the best you will taste in the capital. Crispy and thin, the blister-crusted pies are smattered with fresh from the garden toppings, slices of spiced sausage and plenty of homemade sauce. Not overdone with cheese, the pizzas are light and lean, just the way Italians make them. Besides the pizzas, the salads and desserts are noteworthy and make excellent complements. And the laid-back atmosphere is just perfect for those Sunday afternoon family outings or dinner-for-twos.
Here at Amici Miei you will find true provincial Italian cooking, right from the heart of Sardinia. Pictures of this beautiful island and its lovely sea line the walls, and an open wood oven sits in one of the corners, creating a wonderful, provincial atmosphere. Of course you can eat pizza, over 20 different varieties, as well as some very good pasta. Amici Miei may be noisy and crowded, but then again, that's the sound of friendly provincial Italy!
When its a French affair, even something like pizza becomes Boho chic. In Paris's Saint-Germain-Des-Prés neighborhood you will stumble across a black door on the corner of Rue de Mézières and Rue Cassette with a bold neon sign declaring 'Pizza Chic', although there's a good chance you've already heard about this place. Sharp and upscale, this pizza place is what one would describe as New York hipster meets Parisian haute-glam. Crisp white tablecloths, silver cutlery and elegant wine setups, that's how owner Julien Cohen imagined this pizzeria. The fine-dine setting with its open kitchen and wood oven is actually quite charming if not intimidating for first-time visitors. Once you're past admiring (or gawking at) the decor, you will notice the concise menu which is laid out with starters, mains and desserts. Go for the Carciofi, smattered with artichokes, arugula and shredded aged parmesan, this star stands out as a favorite among its thin-crust counterparts. Vegetarians must try the crudaiola, loaded with fresh from the garden tomatoes, arugula and fresh mozzarella. And the handpicked selection of wines goes perfectly with the pizzas.
