Sette is the best pizza thing that ever happened to Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis.
One would assume, given France’s proximity to Italy, that good pizza would be a given in Paris. Sadly it has been ‘adapted’ to local tastes, involving unwelcome buckets of Crème fraîche, cooked potato and raw egg yolks.
If you have a moment to investigate this phenomenon further, please refer to the ‘Nebraska Beef’ on Speed Rabbit’s menu.
Then out of a magic fluffly cloud of authenticity came Sette. A humble cantina brimming with good looking hipsters serving decent Rosato at minimum cost.
For starters, they have a woodfired oven. Not something you see in Paris everyday.
Secondly, the majority of their pizzas have 2-3 toppings, with no signs of ‘Tartiflette’, which means maybe they understand pizza.
Thirdly, almost 90% of their menu is less than €10 – unless you want to splurge on Truffles or Seven Cheeses, for €12.50.
If this weren’t enough achievements for a Parisian restaurant on Saturdays they serve ‘service continue’ from midday to midnight. Go immediately if not sooner.
Impress fellow hipsters: Sette use San Marzano tomatoes, the only tomatoes protected by appellation protégée AOP. Their bases are left for four days to achieve maturity.
