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 […]

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 […]

Ai Marmi, Roma, April 8, 2016

So far behind on this blog! I apologize to both of my readers, but I’d swear I had documented this pizzeria because we had so much fun eating there! Ai Marmi pops up on best-pizza-in-Roma lists from time to time. Ric and I were going to go to Ai Marmi once a couple of years […]

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. […]

Dar Poeta, November 10, 2014

Sometimes we get to eat pizza more than once a week. Vacations and holidays call for such indulgence. Since we had not been to our number 1 favorite pizzeria in a while, we took the opportunity to go on a Monday night before the Veteran’s Day holiday. We figured the crowd would not be too bad […]
