The eternal burrata, the legendary pizza a la tartufo, penne all’ arrabiatta, but only the real ones, the ones that season our hearts, the iconic coffee tiramisu… we’re already salivating, how about you? View ours 4 favorite Parisian tables facing beautiful Italy. Common password: love with a capital A.
Between an atypical atmosphere, sublimated flavors and personal reviews of the boot’s greatest specialties, the four of them are sure to make you fall in love with Italy.
4,3,2,1… crunch, taste.
A secret landmark on the Left Bank, Le Monteverdi is nestled at the top of rue Guisarde, at number 5. Lucky number or not, we really want to believe it, as it has established itself over the decades as the unforgettable Italian address on rue de la So , if. Like the Odeon district, Le Monteverdi is a true institution.
Like a precious jewel, it has been passed down from family to family and its soul has continued to endure and grow. We remember its cozy piano bar atmosphere that hypnotized us late into the night, its outdoor terrace directly on the street that projected us for an evening drunk on the night terraces of Rome and its wine list, of course.
We enjoy his inimitable arancini, linguini with shrimp that twist orange peel, shrimp, grilled pistachios and aubergine cream for the most daring or, for the most faithful, penne siciliana with the huge burrata.
We go there for the crème de la crème: tiramisu. A bomb. We return for his service, of which only Monteverdi knows the secret: Be silent, we will say nothing!
Should? We spotted Monica Bellucci and her daughter Deva dining there earlier this summer…
Paris society and its new table at the foot of the Palais Tokyo: this gives Bambini. A unique terrace with a breathtaking VIEW of the Eiffel Tower, warm and colorful decor, powered by solar energy and a shared kitchen… Benvenuto a tutti! We love Bambini for its super generous cuisine and for its 360° immersion from Naples to Rome. At the bar, we like to revisit the greatest Italian classics: Amaretto Sour, Spritz, Bellini… Facing the Eiffel Tower, we enjoy the giant burrata, focaccia, pasta cooked according to the rules of the art and its irresistible Neapolitan pizzas.
A romantic dinner or a moment of sharing with its beautiful tribe, Bambini welcomes us as in Italy: the heart is wide open. We come back again and again for his fettucini alla tartufo, his pizza bambinita and his Neapolitan donuts to dip in melted hot chocolate… Wow, simple as that.
To try pizza like in Naples, we go to Magnà, per favore. The principle? Eat high quality street food pizza. Chef Julien Serri revisits the principle of pizzaiolo, he serves us the pizzas folded in half, portafolio style, to try directly on the street. This pizza enthusiast and French pizza runner-up brings the Neapolitan vibe to Paris. The latest news? Rotolo pizza for taste rolled up!
We find Magnà at 9 rue Notre Dame de Lorette to eat Italy with your fingers.
We especially love the T’ar’tufa pizza with mozzarella fior di latte, cream truffle, rostello herb ham and truffle shavings. A feast for the eyes and the heart.
Or the modern trattoria that attracts the entire fashion world to its landmark. Located at 6 rue Vivienne in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, not far from the premises of Kenzo and Isabel Marant, this restaurant has made its way into the former fashion workshop of Jean Paul Gaultier, that’s right!
When we go to Darroco, we soak up the frenetic atmosphere, the decor with its amazing modern design, the aromas that excite us… in short, an unusual experience.
We are fascinated by the mirrored ceiling, the marble tables, the vegetation that is a real queen and the open kitchen where we can see how the chefs prepare our wildest delicacies. We remain speechless before the choice of pizzas: rather Formagissima or Napoli? A dilemma. We go back for the carpaccio with sea bream and rose berries, but also for rigatoni guanciale, tomatoes and vodka, it’s so good…
Should? Darroco also welcomes you in the middle of the 16th in a completely different universe. And we’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s tiramisu on the 16th. They make the best affogamis in all of Paris. End point.
