Mamma mia! But what is that? Virgin olive oil, polenta, Italian wines, sundried tomatoes from Apulia, fresh Ricotta, not to mention the almond milk and the Cosenza figs… A paradise for all who cherish the tastes from ‘the boot’! Jules, an admirer of Italian cuisine, doesn’t hesitate to take il suo amore to RAP, a fine Italian delicatessen which has been transformed into a chic restaurant.
At the moment, you can taste a seasonal vegetable Strudel, prawns seasoned in black truffle oil, or a tart of aubergines in basil, or fillets of sole gilded in Parmesan. Of course, after your meal, a shopping trip the delicatessen is necessary so you can leave with thousands of products to eat!
RAP, the Italian restaurant, welcomes you from Wednesday to Sunday, afternoons and weekends.
The Delicatessen is open Tuesday, 10.30am to 1pm and 3.30pm to 7.30pm and on Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am to 8pm.
RAP – Delicatessen and Italian Restaurant
15-24, rue Rodier
For a mozzarella bar, the place is aptly named: Mmmozza! The shop is adorned with the colors of Italy in the Cinecittà style and the manager Laura welcomes you in with true Italian warmth to let you taste all the delicious surprises of her stall. Whether you want round, long, plump, milky, rolled or forged, in bulk or packaged mozzarella – you can find them all in Mmmozza! Jules has a penchant for Burrata di Bufala, the most bohemian of all the mozzarella, Laura even sells it in a big ball of 500g! From Puglia in southern Italy, after the light resistance of its surface, Burrata has a centre slightly liquid base similar to butter to …eat with just a little salt and pepper and delizioso! After that, you’ll never look at mozzarella in the same way again!
But in Mmmozza, there are also olive oils, tasty Italian sausage (ham, parma, mortadella …), fresh pasta, antipasti … An authentic little piece of Italy on rue de Bretagne, Paris!
At noon, the shop turns into a mini Italian cafeteria or a giant picnic. Pick up a plate and select from antipasti, charcuterie, mozzarella and voila!
Certainly, in Mmmozza Jules loses Boouu rrata …!
Open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 14:30 and from 17h to 20h. Sundays from 10 am to 14.30.
