Amici Mei is loud and hopping. Even at lunch there is a wait to sit as local business people gather. It’s a short walk from Place de Bastille and ten minutes from the more delicious, if quieter, La Briciola.

The pies at Amici Mei are parchment paper thin with a sourdough flavor. The crust gets crispy at the edges to the point where it felt like it was eating crackers. And like so many Paris pizzerias, the rest of the bread is too soggy. The cheese is typical of what you’d find in any average pizzeria in the states, only here it’s laid on too thick. The sauce is watery thin, not very exciting and there’s not enough of it. Aside from location, we expect Amici Mei is so popular because of price (9.00€) as well as their nice variety of pies and fun toppings, including an arugula pie that looked so healthy we wanted to run out to find a chocolate soufflé.

The trick on weekdays to to arrive early, because lines at lunch can go out the door.
