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).

This visit there were no crowds, […]

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 […]
