You are vacationing in the French Riviera but you’d like to be in Italy too. Sure, you can’t be in two places at the same time. But you can visit L’Italien Saint Tropez. This Italian restaurant in the city of the Cote d’Azur is the perfect place to enjoy the best of the Mediterranean.
The delicious menu
Think of Italian food. What did you imagine? Pasta, pizza, and tiramisu. At this restaurant, you can try them all. And something new. The gastronomy of the country of Florence and Rome is that and much more.
You can start with the sea bream carpaccio with olive oil and lime. If you prefer a vegetarian option, the alla puttanesca fried baby artichokes are one of the restaurant’s favorites. For a delicious main course, how about the ricotta ravioli? They come with pine nuts and sage butter. Or perhaps the clams gnocchi with parsley pesto sauce.
A perfect summer dish is the Vitello Tonnato with olive oil, capers, and tuna mayonnaise. Or the fresh fruits minestrone soup made with citrus fruits sorbet and meringue sprinkles. For the perfect Italian bite, order the Tomato smoked pizzetta with stracciatella and basil.
To finish your meal, you can try the coffee tiramisu with cocoa powder or the refreshing lemon sorbet with basil.
Dolce vita at L’Italien Saint Tropez
The food isn’t the only Italian vibe at this restaurant. Even the decor and the design speak of the sunny country of Florence and Venice.
This place is as sunny as the French Riviera and as authentic as the Costiera Amalfitana. Aromatic herbs like basil and rosemary dot the place like house plants. Vintage lamps and vases decor the interior. Flowers are everywhere and so are the wooden, warm details.
The pastel colored pillows are as comfortable and trendy as they look. You are sitting on cozy sofas or on wooden chairs, that remind you of a beach break in Italy. It’s the dolce vita, in all its charm.
