Chez Bartolo is probably one the most famous pizza place in Paris. Situated at the heart of the VIe arrondissement, chez Bartolo was founded in 1950 by Bartolo Memola, an Italian cook, freshly arrived in Paris. To cook these marvelous pizzas, this cuisine perfectionist imported a real wooden oven from his native Italian region, Campania.
Today, his grand-daughter Aurélie picked up the gauntlet and left the decor just the way it was, hung a portrait of her grand-father on the wall, and barely touched the menu composition.
And that’s a good thing, because they still serve the best pizzas in Paris, French endives with gorgonzola, delicious pasta and an incredible tiramisu.
We like: one of the trendiest addresses in Saint-Germain, with lots of VIPs and the golden youth of the area.
