Go-To Place

Punctum, Chur, Switzerland, 28 December, 2015

Swiss pizza, who’d have guessed? We were in Chur overnight to take the UNESCO World Heritage Bernina Express through a very scenic section of Switzerland. We identified Punctum, a cute aperitivo place, during an afternoon walk, intending to have just that: un’aperitivo, meaning a glass or two of wine and some light bites. Upon perusing the menu, […]

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 […]

Tutta Bella, Seattle, WA, August 11, 2015

We spent a delightful week with family in  Seattle and were treated to our weekly pizza in outing at Tutta Bella. This is pretty darn impressive pizza, conforming to the standards of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napolitana. (Who knew?) That’s real Neapolitan, my friends. Cooked in beautiful wood-fired ovens, you cannot get much closer to Naples-style than Tutta […]

Pizzeria Tedeschi, Korčula, June 13, 2015

Since my last pizza blog we have been traveling and managed to fit in pizza for lunch at Lago di Garda (Cirano in Malescine), for dinner in the Dolomites at Moso (Ristorante Pizzeria Martina), and now in Croatia. Yup, we are eating it more than once a week, and it is all good! If you are […]

Il Leone Rosso, Sorrento, May 22, 2015

We are still consuming pizza, I just have not had time to blog about it. We’ve been changing house, having guests, and traveling. In fact our most recent pizza was in Sorrento on Sunday night. They day after we retired, we headed to Sorrento with our visiting son, Derek. Pompeii was somewhat crowded, despite the […]

Est! Est!! Est!!!, Rome, April 10, 2015

We first tried to go to Est! Est!! Est!!! in 2011 on Santo Stefano, December 26, the day after Christmas. It was closed, like many places on a holiday, and we ended up at what can best be called a Roman diner down the street, conveniently open, too brightly lighted, with tired waitresses and a […]

Hotel Crescenzo, L’isola di Procida, April 5, 2015

Pizza for Easter? Yes in fact it was our Easter supper. We did have a proper lunch: grilled swordfish and grilled calamari, lovely seafood antipasti and cicoria. We spent Easter weekend on Procida, a tiny island near Ischia, just off the Italian Coast at Napoli. Expecting nice spring weather, we were rewarded with rain and chilly temps, […]
