Mamma miam, there’s a new challenger in the Parisian pizza game! And not just anyone, since we’re talking about the Neapolitan condottiere, Matteo Caprioli, who used to work for Big Mamma and Daroco. In his restaurant/terrace with a mere 18 seats, the ragazzo carefully kneads his dough with hints of hazelnutty flavor. Smoking hot out of the electric copper oven, the day we went for lunch: an Instagrammable pizza bianca of the day made with San Daniele ham, figs and stracciatella; a fashionable Hot Too Hot with spicy ’nduja, red onions and burrata; or a bright O My Sun combining yellow tomatoes, fior di latte, bresaola, ricotta and lemon zest. For dessert, there’s a beautiful baba au rhum with lemon cream from Napoli or, if you’re feeling a little crazy, a comforting sweet pizza topped with Nocciolata.
FEELING THIRSTY? There’s a delightful sparkling Sui-Lieviti (€7 a glass), Alla Costiera, a fresh Venetian white (€30 a bottle) or an atypical Cerasuolo-d’Abruzzo rosé (€30).
PRICE: Antipasto €7, pizzas from €9.50 to €18, desserts €7-8.
