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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

La Caveau, Chamonix, France, June 3, 2016

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
