Daroco made big buzz when they opened a few months ago. To start with, the restaurant is nested in the heart of the Opera district, not too far from the Louvre and near beautiful Galerie Vivienne. The restaurant decor is really fancy, with mirrors covering the ceiling. Don’t miss the hidden secret cocktail bar at the back! Perfect for a romantic night or business dinner with drinks.

Popolare is a newly opened branch of the super-successful Parisian foodie startup Big Mama. Here at Popolare, is all about pizza. The setting is warm and authentic, and the decor is really instagram-able! But don’t get me wrong, the joy is in your plate. The pizza selection is wonderful, as well as the selection of antipasti to start or complement your dish.
Grazie was one of the first to rejuvenate the pizza scene in Paris. The New York style decor of this chic restaurant makes a perfect setting for a nice dinner in the Bastille / Marais area of Paris. The pizza are simply delicious. If you are lucky enough, you’ll get to seat on the comfy leather sofas near the windows. Grazie is perfect for a couple, and even families with kids.
5. IL BRIGANTE
Il Brigante is a hidden gem at the back of the Montmartre hill in the North of Paris. Here it’s all about pizza. Don’t expect a fancy decor, a vast seating area, and top notch service. The chef is preparing and baking the pizza right on front of your eyes. The ambiant smell is a delight! However, you better get there a little early for the dinner service, as this super tiny restaurantcan only accommodate a handful of pizza lovers!
6. LA FELICITA
La Felicita is the new gem of the Big Mama group. It is located in the redeveloping 13th district inside Station F, the European temple of innovation and startups. There are various self-service stations to choose from, including a delicious authentic Italian pizza corner. The menu changes very frequently here. La Felicita has also a nice covered terrace outside, as well as extensive seating options. La Felicita is a great option with friends, kids, and even for solo pizza enthusiasts.
Popine was created a couple of years ago and is our absolute favorite spot in the North-Eastern part of Paris. The pizzaiolo Gennaro Nasti is from Naples, which is usually a good sign of quality and authenticity for pizza fans! Popine’s pizza have that perfect balance of texture and flavor. A must if you happen to stay or visit the Belleville area of Paris.
