La Pratolina, April 17, 2015

On repeat visits to a favorite place I often forget I am supposed to be paying attention enough to write about it and find something new to say. On this visit we were distracted by the presence of friends whom we had coerced into joining us but I can assure you, La Pratolina is still […]

Rossini, March 27, 2015

I am way behind – again – on OWP, so I am not going to go on-and-on about Rossini as I already reviewed it November 7 and February 6. We love the place even though it is the most expensive place we eat pizza and it is not the best pizza either. But it’s a package: […]

Taverna Rossini, February 6, 2015

I am late in posting once again. Somehow I always seem to be a week late in posting to OWP. By now we are in Toscana and skipped our usual Friday pizza as it was my birthday yesterday and we indulged in a sumptuous late lunch near Montepulciano. As we finished lunch about 4:00PM, having […]

Pizzeria Da Remo, January 23, 2015

Sometimes […]

Pizzeria al Forno della Soffitta, January 2, 2015

Our first pizza of 2015 was at a delightful place we visited only once before: Pizzeria al Forno della Soffitta. It was all the more delightful because the bus from our neighborhood stops directly in front of this pizzeria. And if we are so lucky as to get a convenient bus back, the stop is […]

Taverna Rossini, Rome, November 7, 2014

Rossini is our neighborhood place. It is a lively, dependable restaurant with a large and varied menu, efficient yet friendly employees. We are “regulars.” When I called to make a reservation a couple of hours before we wanted to dine, the woman taking reservations recognized my voice (and no doubt my accent) and said “Sí, […]
