“Attention, pas plus de 150°C!” (Be careful, not more than 150°C!) the man exclaimed when I told him I’d warm up his pizza (which could be mistaken for a foccacia) for a later lunch that day. Yep, you don’t want to mess with their food!
Baked on a 40x60 cm sheet, the rectangular pizzas are sold by the slice. Vegetarian or not, the toppings are delicious and abundant, and the dough excellent; the restaurant is cosy and tastefully designed, and the two men who own the place make a very charming French-Italian team.
The seating is limited and the place quite popular so be ready to order your food to go (there are quite a few parks in the neighborhood in case the place is full.) Also, the restaurant can be rented for private parties during week nights.
You know how Italians are: If the food isn’t good they won’t it eat it. Well, 40/60 (40X60) is full of Italians.
