The Little Italy neon lights have been lit for a few weeks only on the Place de Clichy and yet the place is already coveted by people looking for new tables. You’ve to be a little patience to have the privilege of tasting the divine risotto, pizza and tiramisu of this trattoria that doesn’t take any booking. Once inside this temple of Italian gastronomy, we’re greeted by the enthusiast buona sera from the Italian waiters (yes, the staff is 100% Italian) and led to a raw wooden table.
To whet the appetite, straciatella, burrata and focaccia perfectly pair original cocktails (almond spritz and a limoncello, thyme and… olive oil beverage). We continue, after hesitating for a long time, with the truffle pizza and the Darth Vader risotto with squid ink and shells, both are delicious! For desserts, we find some room left for the exquisite tiramisus: the classic and the revisited with pistachio. We leave the place with a quite full stomach, but our palate is absolutely delighted. And for god reason, all the ingredients come straight from Italy and have been thoroughly selected by the chef who travel the entire country.
With its red brick-walls, its shelves filled with huge parmesan wheels and its super friendly service, The Little Italy is not only a place where we eat well, but also a place where we feel good. Here, no fuss, the atmosphere is friendly, and prices are very affordable. In other words, the place to be for a night out with friends. pizzas start for only €4 and don’t exceed €18. Pasta too, they cost about €10, and the many antipasti cost €7.
The moral? We ate everything!
