Its secret? A wood oven, coming straight from Naples, in which they cook incredible pizze, both light and flavorful, and topped with quality produces (organic, Slow Food labelled, PGI or DPO).
This summer 2021, Gruppo Dalmata creates an event by inaugurating a new place. Called Giorgio, this brand-new restaurant in Paris 11th arrondissement can fit up to 90 seats indoors and 40 on the terrace, Julien Bouaziz spared no expense.
Pinker and more disco, Giorgio will provide patrons with a festive and truly delicious travel in space and time thanks to the retro-futuristic-inspired decoration, Italian-disco and Californian glam from the 70’s.
As for food, there are two Neapolitan wood ovens for even more pizzas, but still as delicious, such as the Rose Panther (€17) with mozzrella fior di latte, mortadella, pistachio cream, and even more surprising, some pistachio praline. Calling all sweet and savory flavor fans!
But Giorgio - unlike Dalmata - also serves several starters to share: some barely transformed, highlighting Giorgio's quality sourcing: super creamy mozzarella di Buffala, bresaola, smoked stracciatella, prosciutto; as well as hot and more cooked starters that amazed us a lot.
For instance, we loved the half-cooked bluefin tuna tataki (€12), as smooth as can be, served with sundried Datterini tomatoes. Note Giorgio purchases their fish one day at a time, while fishers call the team to tell them what they have. It is hard to be more sustainable!
We also recommend the fried polenta and bolognese ragù (€9), the exquisite vitello tonnato cooked over low temperature (€14) and the big fried pulled beef meatball (€8) to dip in spicy bellpepper cream. We would have loved to give a go to the fried burrata, but victim of its own success, it was no longer available. We will come back to taste it for sure!
Of course, we cannot say no to a tasty cocktail created by Dalmata team very mixologists. We loved the rhubarb cocktail and the basil cocktail, super refreshing and perfectly balanced.
As for main courses, in addition to the Rose Panther pizza, let us go for a more original one: minute-made lasagna (€17) covered in hearty parmesan cream; and for a less Italian dishes, the caramelized pork briskets with balsamic vinegar and blood oranges from Sicilia we would have loved a bit more Italian.
We tell you right away: do not miss desserts or you might miss this incredible Pistachou (€12), a huge crunchy choux bun filled with pistachio ice cream churned on site (!); or the Capucci (€8), aka liquid iced tiramisu served in a cup of coffee!
