Rome

72 Ore, March 20, 2015

At last a new-to-us place in Roma that was worthy of the trip. Thanks to a fellow blogger, John Henderson of Dog-Eared Passport, we found 72 Ore. It’s quite a trek from our house, involving bus, Metro and a short walk. We only undertake such a journey when the pizza is worthy. John seems reliable. […]

Il Corallo, February 20, 2015

Sorry to be so behind on blogging! Ho da fare! (I have much to do) with our pending exit from the Embassy, from the workforce, and our move to a new apartment. PLUS we are about to go to Paris for week, our son arrives a couple of days before I retire in May, my brother […]

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 […]

Celestina, January 30, 2015

Pizzeria Da Remo, January 23, 2015

Once again I face the challenge of writing about a place we’ve been before and finding something new to say. This time we had the pleasurable company of our good friend Michael Horne of Dall’Uva.  Michael’s business brings him to Italy several times a year, and when in Rome we like to share a meal. Sometimes […]

La Pratolina, January 9, 2015

I haven’t really determined how to deal with repeat visits in my focused little pizza blog. Unless a great place goes downhill, there’s not much news in going back to the same venue. So, for the record, here is a repeat visit to La Pratolina. You can read my first review here. This is one of […]

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 […]
