The biggest and shiniest so far from the Big Mamma Group, this location has an altogether different feel from the others. Though there are still some touches that stay consistent: the all Italian staff (parlez vous Italian?) and the awesome wood-fired-oven pizzas. The walls are decorated with thousands of filled liquor bottles which give an amber reflective tint to the interior. It also makes you feel like you are in party central, with pizza and pasta along for the ride. This location, the Big Mamma Group's (Victor Lugger and Tigrane Seydoux) latest one has both upstairs seating and a downstairs seating/bar area. The menu also features salads like Caesar's with the real anchovy/egg yolk blend. And for dessert the Italian gelato is a hit though the profiteroles are super famous, as is the lemon tiramisu. This is a sun place with loud music, Italian good vibes and great food.
- Italian: "The no reservations policy here means that you can expect a line out the door starting from about 7pm any day of the week. The line moves fast, though, so take comfort and by the time you make it inside to where all the lovely wood-fired pizza stoves are, you will have seen and been seen by all the Paris hipsters who matter."
- Best for Italian Because: Fun times and good pizzas. That's a long-held, time proven recipe for success and in 2017 in Paris it still works - phenomenally well.
