Sfacciata, here is the name of the latest Italian restaurant in Paris filling the air with Italian cuisine smells, coming from the cucina povera, but twisted a very contemporary way. The young 27-year-old female chef, Frederica, will definitely whet your appetite.
Sfacciata – meaning “cheeky” in Italian – is set a stone’s throw from the Jardins des Tuileries, 7 rue du 29 Juillet in Paris 1st arrondissement. As for the décor, the place bets on inspiration from the 70’s/80’s Italy. This venue, covering 2 stories, also features a lovely bar in the lobby and a quieter upper floor for wonderful dinner parties.
Moving on to the bar, the spot has a lovely list made in partnership with The Little Red Door: they offer Italian classic revisited in a very retro style, often with vermouth.
The menu features:
After delicious cheese gougères to start with, we went for the Beef Tartare served with Bronte pistachio, zabaione and celery crackers, and the Calimari with lemony clams, rapini, homemade focaccia and squid ink, so good.
As for mains, we went for the Cicatelle, homemade hand-rolled fresh pastas with vegetarian artichoke-based carbonara. We also went for the Rombo, flounder fillets with thickened Marsala sauce, served with vitelotte potato chips and baby fennel.
Last but not least, desserts are not left out. They are as beautiful as they are tasty. Go for the crunchy cylindrical Tuile holding lavender, mandarin, and hazelnut yogurt, the Crostata ricotta based on red berries, a genuine painting, and the exquisite Babamisu with sour pears, Island rum and Sichuan pepper.
In other words, here is everything you need to have a treat in this new restaurant in Paris, whether you are a fan of Italian food or not.
