Pizza in Paris


I ate a lovely pizza and drank some great French rosé at Pizza Florenza (7 rue Tardieu, 75018 Paris; phone/fax 01 42 54 00 49) — in Paris, no less. This Italian restaurant has charming café tables outside and a charming manager named Tony.

It’s located off of rue des Martyrs, near the steps up to Sacré Couer basilica. Depart the Métro at the Anvers stop, then walk along boulevard de Rochechouart to rue des Martyrs (toward the basilica’s funicular). Rue Tardieu is on the right.

The price was right, about $15 for pizza and vino in June ’06, and the total French/Italian atmosphere was a delight as we watched the world walk by our table.
