Everyone knows Italian cuisine… But the GENUINE Italian cuisine, the one we eat while travelling Roma, Naples, Florence or Venice, and we’d like to find back at home to remind us of our latest trip to Dante’s country…? Zazza is a bit of this promise, this return to traditional yet very modern flavors, this corner of Italian paradise at the heart of Paris. Located in the 10th arrondissement, the restaurant really knows how to pep up delicate mouths’ taste buds.
Speaking of the menu, fresh products from remote regions: burratina, Bresaola carpaccio, pizzas with all kinds of sauces, served with tomatoes, mozzarella fior di latte, scarmozza and other gorgonzola… and same things when it comes to wines and liqueurs: Lambrusco (a sparkling red wine), Prosecco, Moscato d’Asti and others Amaretto and Limoncello… Flavors that take us straight to the gourmet terraces of our previous vacations. And for those who don’t know about Italy, the journey is immediate and the discovery enjoyable.
The editorial board advises you to take the burratina, very light and pleasant in the mouth. A very simple dish, like the country’s cuisine or the Bresaola carpaccio, generous and refreshing. In terms of pizzas, you should go for the calzone, rather classic but prepared with love and the tartufata, a curious pizza made of truffles, very lightly scented and particularly tasty.
In terms of decorum, same assessment, the white brick walls and the marble, no matter if it’s the façade or the bar, unquestionably makes us think of some building of the northern Italy (and which façades are made of Carrara marble) – for those who know the country well. I told you, we feel like in Italy… And for those who’d like to extend the experience, the house even built a trattoria in Bastille, Ammazza, where you can have a bite with colleagues or an aperitivo… So, let’s go, friends?
