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 […]

Pizzeria Domino, Lugano, Switzerland, June 10, 2016

After our disastrous but amusing pizza experience in Chamonix, another Pizza Venerdi* rolled around and found us in Lugano, Switzerland. Leaving the old town, we found — I kid you not — Domino’s Pizza on the lakeside.  This one is Ristorante Pizzeria Bar Domino. We were almost alone at Domino this evening, with rush hour over and a view […]

Ai Marmi, Roma, April 8, 2016

So far behind on this blog! I apologize to both of my readers, but I’d swear I had documented this pizzeria because we had so much fun eating there! Ai Marmi pops up on best-pizza-in-Roma lists from time to time. Ric and I were going to go to Ai Marmi once a couple of years […]

Organic Pizza, Salzburg, Austria, February 19, 2016

What a surprise to find good pizza in Salzburg! We were not going to feed the need this particular Friday, but in consulting Trip Advisor I found Organic Pizza ranked very high, so we thought we’d give it a try. Heeding a TA review that advised reservations, I called and was advised 8:00 pm would […]

Al Forno della Soffitta, Roma, January 29, 2016

Yes, there have been a lot of pizza posts lately. I am trying to catch up on this blog. Maybe I’ll even stay caught up. Al Forno della Soffitta (beware when you click – the website has music) is an easy choice for us. We can walk there in about 30 minutes, helping amortize what we […]

Pizzeria San Marino, Roma, January 22, 2016

We had not been to Pizzeria San Marino in more than two years., but we recalled it fondly. It’s a long walk from our house — just short of an hour — but as we’d been quite lazy all day we needed some steps if we were going to eat pizza. This is a cavernous […]
