La Prima is a neighborhood pizza place where you can get good pizza at decent prices. The menu offers several options aside from pizza, such as classics like lasagna and ravioli. However, the real pleasure comes in the variety of pizza toppings, from fried egg to bacon to Roquefort cheese. There are several pizzas to choose from, with carefully selected combinations of ingredients, some classic in the Franco-Italian pizza style and some more unusual, like garlic-rubbed goat cheese croutons. The pizzas are nicely sized with a zesty sauce and a good amount of cheese that's never greasy. One of the best parts is sitting near the window, where the restaurant overlooks a busy corner of the street leading to the Parc des Expositions: it's prime people-watching territory. -Emily Monaco
