Pizza in Paris – Pizza Marzano is Ooh, la, la!!

Pizza-Marzano

Hello Lovelies,

I consider myself somewhat of a pizza aficionado.  My qualification are as follows – I’m an Italian from Jersey.  Clearly, my qualifications speak for themselves.  Even so, I’m not a pizza snob.  I will entertain any and all pizzas with various crusts and toppings – such as but not limited to, thin crust, thick crust, cheesy crust, just cheese, lots of veges and white pizza.  Are you hungry yet?

I hope so because I am going to introduce you to a little gem we found on our first few hours in “as magical as everyone says it is” Paris, France.  Now I realize pizza may not be everyone’s first choice for dining in Paris, however, for my family it couldn’t have been a more welcome meal.  Pizza Marzano is located in Place Saint-Michel in the 5th arrondissement in Paris.  It is across from the The Fontaine Saint-Michel and walking distance from Notre Dame. It’s quite the hustle and bustle corner as the subway is also accessed at this location.

Seeing as this was our first restaurant experience in France we were elated when our server spoke to us in English.  That of course, was after we unintentionally butchered their lovely language.  We are firm believers in speaking, or at the very least, making an effort to speak the language of the country we are visiting.  We believe this illustrates how much we respect their country.  In turn, we are always met with very gracious hosts, as was the case at Pizza Marzano.

For our order we stuck with an oldie but goodie…a plain cheese pie. It was good.  So good in fact, that we ate there a couple more times during our short stay. Their prices were reasonable and their restaurant was warm and cozy, which was fantastic because we were freezing!

Between the local bakery, the Sunday market and Pizza Marzano we ate like kings!  Our boys still talk about Pizza Marzano being one of their favorite restaurants.  Imagine that, not even teenagers and having one of their favorite restaurants located in Paris, France.  Ooh, la, la! These are exactly the fun memories we enjoy creating with our boys.  I’m very glad I was able to share this one with you.

  1. We are headed to Paris later this year (August/September). Actually, Amsterdam/Brussels/Paris/Milan/Venice/and 4 Greek Islands). I look forward to checking out the pizza. It looks delicious. Thanks for finding my writings @ MyKoruLifestyle. It has led me to yours, and I have truly enjoyed reading them!
