The eatery is indeed chic and stylish with silver cutlery, white linen, creative lighting, and a general Paris underground feel. The black and white theme creates a dramatic effect, especially with the sound of crackling logs burning in the fireplace. 

 

The bustling pizzeria is in a great location being in the bustling St. Germain area which is also a reason why the eatery is just as busy. The lovely terrace space is also great for summer lunches.
Tasty crispy thin crust pizzas are of course the stars on the menu; their pizza Aurora is a crowd pleaser. Delicious Apertifs, antipasti, dolci (desserts), and an impressive selection of wines are also offered.
Pizza Chic serves lunch and dinner daily from 11:30 am – 11 pm (until 10 pm on Sundays).
