Pizza Vesuvio – Italian Restaurant (Paris)

1, Rue Gozlin, 75006 Paris, France 
After a morning of walking along St Germain for shopping, we headed to Vesuvio for lunch. It is a quaint little restaurant decked out in Italian décor with a ‘lively’ atmosphere of engrossed diners and busy waiters. The menu had a variety of pastas, pizzas, starters and desserts. The pizzas are handmade and backed in a wood oven, giving it that unique baked taste.

Between the 5 of us, we ordered 3 pastas, 1 pizza, and 2 Calamari sets. The sea food marina pasta and pesto pasta looked good. Unfortunately they were some distance away from where I was seated, so it was hard to snap a photo of the delicious looking food!

The rest of us had the tuna pizza and a Calamari set, and vegetarian pasta each. I had a bite of the tuna pizza and it was nice! Unlike the pizzas you can usually get in Singapore: the crust was thin and lightly salted, with the edges a little burnt; adding to the taste and texture. The dough was not rubbery at all. The portions were just nice, not too little and not too much.

The prices were pretty reasonable too. We shared another Calamari set and it was a different experience! Unlike the tougher and harder (and/or drier) versions you get in Singapore, the calamari was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, and very fresh. It was so good that there was no time to take any photos!

While the food was palatable and enjoyable, some might not be too keen about the service. Although service was efficient - your order gets taken and food served relatively fast – it was all done without a smile and the waiter was a little curt. So you might want to avoid this place if you are all about service and smiles.
