Pink facade, a rooftop atrium with plants all over, floral tiles, and multiple floors each with different vibes—welcome to Pink Mamma, the Italian pizzeria by the Big Mamma Group that’s fit for the pages of AD and your social feed. But this buzzy restaurant in Pigalle (in a former hospital, if you can believe it) has the style and substance to justify all those photos circulating on the internet. 

A mostly Italian staff keeps the energy high once you get inside, with enthusiastic greetings in Italiano and friendly banter that you know is part of the job description, but is super pleasant all the same. It’s what makes the atmosphere universally appealing: great for impressing a date, but also ideal for a birthday meal with grandma or a girl’s night out.

The menu of pizza, homemade pasta, and meat is loosely Tuscan-inspired, and will transport you right to Florence. The rule of thumb here is if a dish is meat-based, get it. The best of them is the grilled bistecca alla fiorentina: a tender flank steak as big as the plate that comes with rosemary potatoes and, if you order right, a glass of Chianti. It would be a shame, though, to miss out on the crunchy-meets-airy Neapolitan pizza and pasta that put the Big Mamma Group on the map, so order at least one Mammargherita pie and the truffle pasta for the table. Plus, with punny names like Moment of Truffle, the pizzas are fun to order. 

Whether you walk in (prepare for a wait) or book ahead online (our recommendation), try to request a table in the leafy rooftop sunroom, the best seats in the house. To make the evening last even longer, don’t leave without stopping into the moody basement-level speakeasy after your meal for a great martini—if you can find it, somewhere behind the restaurant’s cold storage room.
