Hungry for some Italian food in Metz? You’re in luck, because Déborah Cassani and Jérémy Ricciuti have you covered! Located on a cobblestoned street with a sunny little terrace, their trattoria is overflowing with authentic Italian vibes (ambient hubbub, wooden décor that doesn’t feel fake, an old stone fireplace). The plates keep things highly Italian as well. For us, the day we went for lunch: golden supplì and polpettine to get things started; tasty farfalle with peas, sun-dried tomatoes and melted mozzarella – or porcini ravioli as the suggestion of the day; before a homemade dessert – tiramisu, cannoli, tartufo… All of the pasta is homemade, from the penne to the gnocchi, and are topped with the sauce of your choice: Neapolitan, carbonara, Parmesan and fresh basil… It’s also worth noting that there’s a fine food’s corner where you can buy Italian cheese and charcuterie to go. // E.D.
