Taverna Rossini, Roma, July 29, 2016

Ahhh, Rossini, you are good to come home to! I have not written about Taverna Rossini in over a year. I think we had come to take it for granted as it is close to home and the only secret to getting a table is to call 2 or 3 hours before you want to dine. […]

Ortisei, Val Gardena, July 2016

The best pizza in Ortisei in the Val Gardena is…in Santa Cristina. Spending a full month in this delightful mountain valley afforded us the opportunity to get out of Ortisei and try pizza in neighboring Santa Cristina. Lucky we did because we found a mighty fine pie, worthy of OWP praise. In four weeks we […]

Pizza D’Or, Antibes, France, May 28, 2016

I bought Ric a present before we left on our trip to France and Switzerland: Where to Eat Pizza by Daniel Young (available from Amazon.com and Amazon.it).  This is an insider’s guide with 1705 selections in 48 countries chosen by 121 regional experts and 956 pizza informants. It’s fun to read and Ric is keeping it […]

Al Forno della Soffitta, Roma, January 29, 2016

Bir & Fud, Roma, November 27, 2015

I am not a very disciplined blogger with regards to this site. I do a much better job keeping up over on Good Day Rome.  For some reason, I have neglected to chronicle our pizza eating. I can assure you it is not because we have stopped eating pizza. I could have written about Fired […]

Nostrana, Portland, Oregon, August 2, 2015

Our Weekly Pizza has been on duty all summer, I just have not had time or inspiration to write about what have amounted to repeat visits (Rossini) or sub-par experiences in Ortisei. This week we had a real treat while traveling to lovely Portland, Oregon: Nostrana makes a wood-fired pizza I would put up against many […]

La Bufala, Maranello, June 3, 2015

Upon completing a tour of the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, we decided it was lunch time. Knowing nothing of Maranello, and especially as it had been a rather impromptu trip (I will write about that on GoodDayRome soon), we did what any connected travelers would do: we consulted Trip Advisor on our smartphones. The #2 […]
