La Massara, Sicilian pizzeria a stone’s throw from the Place de la République

Italian cuisine lovers are expected at La Massara, a Sicialian pizzeria set in Paris 3rd arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Place de la République. The occasion to enjoy delicious pizzas and travel through time for lunch or dinner to Catania, Palermo or Syracuse.

A very traditional Sicilian pizzeria… This is the concept of Paris 3rd arrondissement-based Italian restaurant La Massara – near the Place de la République. An establishment set just across Norma, another restaurant belonging to La Massara owner, Francesco Lombardo. A pizzeria in tribute to his grandfather, poet Giuseppe Nicolosi Scandurra and to the love of his life, Rusidda, the famous “massara” mentioned in the name.

For the record, the “massara” was “the first lady of fincas, agricultural lands in Sicily”. She was entrusted with organizing the harvests and the farm workers’ meals. A beautiful tribute that translates the whole gastronomy of the island and its tradition. And a pizzeria, like Norma, serving a whole bunch of products coming straight from Italy such as burrata, ham, cheese, pistachio or Sicilian specialties.

A restaurant the editorial board tried and really loved. Beyond the excellency of the cooking, products are thoroughly selected and of a rare finesse to cook perfect pasta, cold cuts or pizzas with an additional Sicilian twist. We went for the 16-month cured Parma ham bruschetta with mozzarella di buffala, cherry tomatoes and basil for a nice starter and we continued with the brontese pizza based on parmesan and pistachios. So good! As for dessert, we went for a Limoncello sorbet, delightful when the heatwave hits.

In other words, La Massara is THE perfect spot to escape to Sicily for lunch or dinner… Let’s book a table, shall we?
