Fultano’s, Cannon Beach, OR, March 23, 2017

Cannon Beach used to be a twice-a-year jaunt for us. We’ve probably traveled here more than any single place on earth, although the number of visits we’ve made to Venezia is closing in on comparable. We came here with our collie each spring and fall for years and the first-night supper was always take-out pizza from […]

Hearth and Table, Lincoln City, March 1, 2017

We had double-good fortune at Hearth and Table. Not only did we find excellent pizza, we met local farmers who will be supplying us cicoria (chicory in English), something we have missed terribly since leaving Italy. Our friend Amethyst had heard that Hearth and Table was supposed to be good. Papa Murphy’s is “supposed to be […]

Gallucci’s Pizzeria, Lincoln City, January 4, 2017

Sometimes you walk into a pizzeria and know you’ve made a mistake. That was the case with Gallucci’s. We were staying in Lincoln City for a couple of days making arrangements for some work on our new house prior to moving. (See Left Coast Life over at GoodDayRome.com.)  We figured this was a good time […]

Guido’s, Durango, CO, December 31, 2016

Our first Christmas in the U.S. since 2010 was a rousing good time and memorable for the people, the food, and the snow. (We have tried to forget the five hour flight delay in Denver.) We passed the holidays at about 7400 feet above sea level in Durango, CO, with my brother Rick and sister-in-law Jane. […]

Apizza Scholls, Portland, December 10, 2016

Despite the strange name, Apizza Scholls delivers a pizza that made us homesick for Rome. Too bad we couldn’t walk there as we might have done in Rome. On a cold and rainy Saturday night, we dressed warmly and dodged roads that were closed due to a snow-and-ice storm earlier in the week. (Burnside and […]

Oak and Olive, Portland, December 4, 2016

I see I have not posted on this blog since August, and that was not about pizza. It’s not that we haven’t eaten pizza almost weekly. We have! For the final few weeks of our Roman residence, we returned to old favorites: Da Remo, La Pratolina, Dar Poeta, and of course Taverna Rossini, each previously reviewed here […]

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 […]
