It’s pizza by the kilo at this (vaguely) Roman-style spot. Bright lights, high stools and cheap wine by the carafe. Locations in Oberkampf and the upper Marais.

Reviews of interest

Patricia Wells (2011) “I vote Al Taglio’s pizzas as some of the best in Paris. On a recent weekday we found mouth-watering Margherita; mozzarella and Parma ham; a version topped with truffle cream and thin discs of potato… The crust is thick and airy, the kind of chewy, long-rise dough my Italian mother used to make, and all ingredients are fresh.”

Gilles Pudlowski (2010) “La pâte d’apparence épaisse se révèle fine et croquante: la belle surprise du lieu! La garniture, elle, est plus inégale: tomate, poivrons piquants, fromage fumé ou nom, pomme de terre (pas assez cuite, donc peu digeste) et crème de truffe (pas très parfumée): c’est sympa, roboratif, généreux, plus sympathique, que savoureux…”

David Lebovitz (2010) “There are some really great pizza places now across Paris serving the real-deal, including Al Taglio…”

Barbra Austin (2010) “Roman style pizza, sold by the weight…wonderfully crisp on the bottom…it holds up to the generous toppings..”

Le Figaro (2009) “On aime beaucoup le concept futé de cette pizzeria pas comme les autres…”

  1. I live round the corner and used to eat here quite often, but the rude service has deterred me from returning. I’ve lived in Paris for almost 5 years, and have never had such terrible/hostile service. It’s too bad, I miss the excellent truffle creme pizza. Hopefully things improve.

  2. Fabulous crust! I love the minimalist decor on the rue Saintonge. Go any time for an excellent pizza and when it comes to pizza, I am very difficult to please.
