Paris, France – This week took us to Roberta where homemade pasta, freshly made,several varieties of mozzarella di bufala, aged prosciuttos and a Milanese cocktail hour are all hallmarks in this family-owned genuine Italian establishment where you can experience the true trattoria experience. The melt in your mouth focaccina, the small Italian bread bursting with olive oil, is garnished here with Crescenza cheese and prosciutto. On the home-made pasta scene trofie, the thin pasta from Liguria, gnocchi, papparadelle, linguine and the celebrated pansoti Genovese, the small ravioli that hail from the Italian Riviera, await.
You can even prolong the Italian eating experience by stopping off in the luxury gourmet Italian specialty shop right on the premises offering the finest in products from Italian producers. Olive oils, hams and other cold cuts, sauces, spreads, Italian truffles and truffle-based products, and myriad condiments are all on the agenda. Roberta is a family affair of mother Roberta and her son Michele, on hand to welcome patrons every day.
Their Milanese cocktail hour held on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 5pm to 7pm is fun and delicious offering up a marvelous selection of classic Italian cocktails and a buffet of homemade antipasti. We enjoyed the Roberta at Bercy Village, a unique country-like venue ensconced in the former Parisian wine depots and surrounded by alleyways and pond-filled natural gardens.
