Maria Luisa is a bustling pizzeria just d’à côté the Canal Saint Martin.
Like most of the decent Italian restaurants in Paris, everyone involved appears to be Italian. And as in Italy, toppings focus on ingredients over ego, portions are definitively generous and the spirited sounds of sparring waft from the kitchen.
Opened in 2006, it continues to heave most nights of the week, as locals cram into the bizarrely shaped dining room to snack on mortadella, mozzarella and some of the most authentic pizza in Paris.
Impress fellow hipsters: by taking hungover hipsters there on the weekend, as it is one of the few places open service-continue all day Saturday and Sunday.
