Last week I went to Italian restaurant Zazza, which is hands down the best pizza in Paris. Perhaps even the world.
With a pizza oven from Florence, ingredients imported from Italy and dishes whipped up by Italian chefs, this place is as authentic as it gets. It’s a little bit pricey, but the food is sensational, so well worth it in my opinion.
I went with a friend and we each had a spritz (€10), shared two pizzas—the Affumicata (€15) and the Figata (€21)—and a tiramisu (€8), all washed down with a limoncello (€5).
My only regret was not being able to eat a whole tiramisu on my own….

If you’re looking for somewhere a bit different to go for dinner or drinks, look no further than Polpo, a seafood brasserie.
This bar-restaurant is in fact a 600m2 barge on the banks of the Seine in the Parisian suburb of Levallois-Perret. You might have to walk along the side of a busy road to get to the place, but once inside, the relaxed vibe makes you feel as though you are on holiday.
Food options include oysters, lobster and mussels (I had the fish and chips, since I’m a Brit), although there are pasta and steak options available if seafood doesn’t float your boat. Dessert is delectable–I had a chocolate mousse to die for.
When it comes to drinks, I’d recommend going for Happy Hour, from 5-8pm, when a spritz is €5.
