The Best!

La Fraschetta del Pesce, Roma, August 6, 2016

Our Weekly Pizza is going lo-carb. For four weeks we consumed amazing pasta, strudel, and the wonderful bread of the Alto Adige. We were hiking to work it off, but now that we are back in the flatlands of Roma, something had to change for a few weeks. Protein and vegetables are on the menu, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
