BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN FOOD TO FEEL AT HOME, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S ITALIAN!
Sometimes I find myself fitting the Italian stereotype perfectly, especially when I sing while cooking a risotto! I have to say that being Italian and living in Paris isn’t so bad. I very rarely feel homesick. As I love to cook, when I want something typical from home, I can just make it myself: Italian products can be had from all the main supermarkets and there are many Italian épiceries fines, so even the most sophisticated ingredients are quite easy to find.
But since not everything can be made at home, sometimes I have to go out if I want to treat myself to a really good pizza or some real ice-cream!
Here is my list if good addresses:
Pozzetto – Gelato e Caffé
This is definitely the best ice-cream in Paris. Their pistacchio gelato is not to be missed!
39, rue du Roi de Sicile, 75004 Paris
Metro : St. Paul
Gusto – Pizzeria
Roman-style pizza, thin and crunchy, my favorite!
134bis, rue de Charenton, 75012 Paris
Metro : Reuilly-Diderot
Pulcinella – Pizzeria
Napolitan-style pizza, thicker and softer than Roman type. Don’t miss the dessert called Cantuccio, a special version of CantuccioTiramisu remake!
2, rue Eugène Sue, 75018Paris
Metro : Marcadet-Poissonnier or Jules Joffrin
Pizza e Fichi
Sliced Roman-style Pizza, with original ingredients giving them a unique touch.
17, Rue Alexandre Dumas, 75011 Paris
Metro : Rue Des Boulets
Caffè dei Cioppi
A very intimate Italian restaurant, where they make the most amazing linguine with clams! This is the right place to go to impress your lover!
159, rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, 75011 Paris
Metro : Ledru-Rollin
Casitalia – Supermarket
A lot of good products at very affordable prices
131 avenue Philippe Auguste, 75011 Paris
Metro : Philippe Auguste
Coopérative Latte Cisternino
French cheese are great but… the Burrata and Ricotta you’ll find here certainly are a tough concurrence.
108, rue Saint Maur, 75011 Paris
Metro : Parmentier
