Perfect Pizza in Paris

by Erica Berman


While most people don’t come to Paris for pizza, if you get the urge for a fix of authentic Italian eats, the Golfe de Naples is the place to go. This bustling inconspicuous restaurant nestled on a corner behind the Bd St. Germain by the Marché St. Germain is hopping from the moment it opens to the moment it closes. Tables are tightly packed, privacy minimal, service brisk but friendly, and food tasty and simple. Thick-crusted and chewy pizza from the wood burning stove is a favorite and is churned out quickly and efficiently by the pizzaiolo (note from Erica: try the Verdura – bufala mozzarella, arugula and tomato sauce). Pasta and antipasti are also excellent choices. Make sure to arrive early (19:30-20:00); tables fill quickly. This is not the spot for a quiet romantic dinner, nor for cheap eat (2 pizzas, a bottle of water & 2 coffees will run you about 35-40€), but it is ideal for a quick Italian fix before heading out to catch a film at one of the many movie theaters in the St. Germain des Pres neighborhood, or for a digestive walk along the Seine to Notre Dame.
