The Dolce Vita has arrive to the Champs-Elysées… Welcome to Cantinetta Ventura, the great Italian venue settling in two new places in Paris 8th arrondissement, a person at 5 avenue Myron Herrick, the other at 49 avenue Franklin Roosevelt. Just next door, then…
Two venues reinventing quick food in a warm location thanks to authentic quality Italian cuisine to love on site, takeaway or shipping. A idea made by Serge Ventura who wished to pay tribute to his Italian roots and get pleasure from the style of his nonna’s (grandmother) cuisine. The strategy? Creating handmade Italian gastronomy reasonably priced to all individuals who do not have time or budget.
Transferring on to the menu, it is signed by chef Giuseppe Franco, former govt chef at IDA cafe in Paris, who also worked at the Jules Verne and with Michelin-starred chef Jean-Louis Nomicos. On the menu, new generates and gorgeous preparations like the homemade focaccia, the lasagnas and creamy sauces for pastas. Talking of which, there are three long-lasting sauces: pesto, Bolognese, truffle, and two pasta of the working day specials on Mondays and Thursdays.
Pastas come straight from Bari, southern Italy, and geared up to order in entrance of foodies and gourmets. And if you are additional into a thing else, the property also serves pizzas this kind of as the pinsa romana, as very well as salads and some creamy burrata coming straight from Apulia.
What about dessert? Italian specialties, for confident, which include the basic tiramisu, the panna cotta and the light-weight mango cream. Enable us have a blast with the profiteroles if you appreciate chocolate, with choux pastries produced the very morning, by the ebook.
The editorial board set the menu to the check. As for starter, we bought the tuna salad tataki design served with wheat and beans, as very well as the burrata and sunshine-loaded tomatoes. Two very clean starters, great in the summer months, and very flavorful. Shifting on to mains, a beautiful pinsa romana with crunchy dough, and a few pasta classes and their sauces. So good! Our hearts ended up set on the bolognese pasta based on home made tomato sauce to die for with pretty tender meat cuts.
As for dessert, the chocolate profiteroles and the crimson berry panna cotta allowed a wonderful closing contact. We significantly liked the chocolate profiteroles, stuffed with very light whipped cream, and really minimal in sugar for the excellent equilibrium.
Two wonderful venues joining people currently flourishing in Malesherbes, Capucines, Haussmann, and Raspail… Shall we give it a go, then?
