On the rue du Roi de Sicile in the lower part of the Marais, not a million miles away from Hotel de Ville, is an address that ought to be in your little black book.
Pozzetto are masters of artisanal Italian gelato. Unlike competitors Berthillon and Amorino, they only have a small menu of just twelve flavours to choose from. This is because they make their ice creams fresh and on a very small-batch basis.
I personnally find their sorbets rather sweet – and I know I’m not the only person in this boat – but their ice creams are fantastic. (Better than Berthillon, maybe! Yep, I went and said it!) My personal favourites are the fior di latte and the chocolate Gianduja flavours.
They also sell great coffee (Italian, obviously!) and a selection of gastronomic delicacies from the other side of the Alps.
