Le Nouvel Observateur (2016) “Son restaurant Capucine, ouvert l’été dernier, compte déjà parmi les meilleures tables italiennes de Paris. Stefania Melis est l’une des chefs de file d’une nouvelle génération de chefs transalpins.”

prosciutto sandwich mmmozza via fb | parisbymouth.com

Mmmozza

Mmmozza has one of the bbbest selections of mozzarella that you’ll find in the city, ranging from tiny bocconcini, to a  baseball-sized burrata stuffed with black truffles, to an enormous braided rope of bufala mozzarella, hacked off by the slice. The skinny sliver of an Italian specialty shop has lines out the door at lunch for its messy, affordable sandwiches featuring fresh mozzarella, cured meats and vegetables, and arugula. When the weather is nice, there’s outdoor seating or you can chow down in the Square du Temple park directly opposite. A variety of imported prosciuttos and salamis, stuffed pastas, oils and vinegars, and a small but quality range of Italian wines are also available for purchase.

Alexander Lobrano (2015) “At Faggio, it wasn’t that anyone was unfriendly, but rather that no one was going to acknowledge that you’d had a long wait before being fed. And of course the wine list was really top-heavy in terms of pricing, since the only way to make the rent if you’re running a pizzeria in Paris is to sell a good amount of pricey wine.”

Table à Découvert (2015) “Une assiette étrange à l’arrivée, je me souvenais juste que j’avais commandé le Saint-Pierre. En fait, le filet ferme et délicieux apparaît sous une belle couche d’herbes réduites en purée, il y a juste une ou deux petites branches de thym qui apparaissent encore. C’est sacrément vert, frais et d’une belle couleur chlorophyllée. Un peu de ricotta pour la douceur, des branches et des feuilles de chicorée juste saisies, je me régale. Et pour tout vous dire, je découvre le poisson dans une version végétale, brute, un peu amère et à la fois douce de ricotta.”

Caffè Stern

Many powerful names/brands have come together for this long-awaited opening inside the Passage des Panoramas. The Alajmo family (of the three-starred Le Calendre in Padua) have partnered with David Lanher (Racines, Vivant) to convert an engraving shop into an Italian restaurant. They had some help from designer Philippe Starck, but thankfully not too much. The historically protected space – a series of dimly glowing rooms that date back to the 16th century – is stunning.  >> Read More

pizza carboneri at il brigante pizzeria in paris | parisbymouth.com

Il Brigante

You get dinner and a show at Il Brigante where the kitchen and dining room are one and the same, and a Calabrian pizzaiolo is turning out masterful cracker-crusted pizzas loaded with authentic Italian imports. It’s smokey, steamy, and entertaining. Try the Carboneri with a runny egg, guanciale, bufala mozzarella, pecorino and a sprinkling of black pepper. The restaurant is as tiny as the menu (just pizza and a handful of desserts) so advanced booking is advised unless you want to queue outside for quite some time. Pizzas available to go, too.

Pizza dei Cioppi pizzeria in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Pizza dei Cioppi

The much adored and now closed Caffé dei Cioppi has branched out into pizza with pleasing results. The long, rectangular pizza al taglio with a springy foccacia base is available by the slice for roughly 6.50€. Offerings include pizzas like the Calabrese (spicy N’duja sausage spread, dollops of sheep’s milk ricotta, mozzarella and tomato sauce), Focaccia farcie (cherry tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella and an unruly mound of arugula) or the Vegetariana (sheep’s milk ricotta, eggplant, roasted red peppers and mozzarella), alongside some salads and a handful of desserts. There’s Birra del Borgo to wash it all down. You can eat onsite at one of the few Formica tables, but you can also get your giant slice to go, too.

Reviews of interest

  • Thierry Richard (2011) “les assiettes qui s’ensuivent ne décoivent pas dans cette veine italo-sophistiquée qui passe les standards transalpins à la moulinette de la modernité….dans son genre haut du panier, l’une des meilleures tables italiennes de la capitale. Service de palace et prix à l’avenant.”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “The remodeled Il Carpaccio is very pretty…Unfortunately, even though Rispoli’s debut dish–mackerel with Italian fatback, preserved lemon and a salad of  bitter greens–was very pretty, it was also monastic and very bland, odd for such a full-flavored fish. Next up, a fancy vegetable minestrone… again, very bland.”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Le Figaro (2010) “une Italie comme on en croise rarement…Tête de cèpe farcie : si l’automne avait un goût, ce plat lui ressemblerait ! Tortellini de pintade, châtaigne et son bouillon : on en boufferait jusqu’à la porcelaine de l’assiette.”
