Pizza per tutti!!

During Christmas holidays, we tested a great Italian family restaurant, in Paris, near Odeon :  Margherita. We really enjoyed this family friendly place which makes delicious pizzas! It’s very spacious and fashionable with its contemporary design : large bar, lovely tables and high ceiling. Everything is kids friendly : high chairs of course, but also play roooms for little ones (books and toys) and teen-agers (video games, pinball machines).
