Pizza Round-up, Italy and Switzerland; Autumn, 2018

Warning: this post may make you want a pizza! Another trip is in the bag and a lot of pizza was eaten: 9 times in seven weeks! We used to eat pizza every week, as evidenced by the title of this blog. It has been two years since we followed the weekly habit but travel […]

La Caveau, Chamonix, France, June 3, 2016

Mannaggia what a marginal pizza we ate here! We tried to go to a place in Chamonix so well-rated even the Italian reviewers liked it, but it was closed for a break before the high season traffic arrives in mid-June. So we went on down to the center of town to a place that advertised pizza au […]

Pizzeria Giacomelli, Rome, May 13, 2016

I want to like Pizzeria Giacomelli more than I do. It is in a nice little neighborhood, seldom seen by tourists, with a classic Roman ambience (meaning low-key, fairly plain, a little disorganized).

Est! Est! Est! Roma, January 15, 2016

Our return to Antica Pizzeria Fratelli RICCI EST! EST! EST! was rather disappointing, I am sorry to say. We’ve eaten here four times prior (see prior review here), and while not the very best pizza in Roma, we found it good and the location offers a diversion from our usual haunts. This visit there were no crowds, […]

Pizzeria Bella Napoli, November 21, 2014

I am a bad blogger. It’s almost time for this week’s pizza-on-Friday and I haven’t written about last week’s adventure. Pizzeria Bella Napoli is a classic Roman neighborhood place. Just off Piazza Alessandria, it’s not a place most visitors would stumble into. The dining room is quite large, but divided into rooms so it is not […]

Trattoria La Scogliera, Manarola, Italy, October 23, 2014

The place: Trattoria La Scogliera, Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italia So here we are in the Cinque Terre, land of alici marinate, foccacia, cozze, e pesto, yet the weekly pizza must be consumed. We literally stumbled into the place downstairs from our apartment as our only option this evening. It was my fault: I twisted my ankle hiking high […]
