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 […]

Al Forno della Soffitta, Roma, January 29, 2016

Yes, there have been a lot of pizza posts lately. I am trying to catch up on this blog. Maybe I’ll even stay caught up. Al Forno della Soffitta (beware when you click – the website has music) is an easy choice for us. We can walk there in about 30 minutes, helping amortize what we […]

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 […]

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, […]

Fratelli (Paris), March 8, 2015

We are in France, but that doesn’t mean we skip Our Weekly Pizza. If one is in Paris for only two or three days, I would recommend enjoying French food and saving your pizza adventures for Italy. BUT we are here for seven  nights and of course pizza research is an essential service we provide. […]

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 […]

La Pratolina, Rome, Italy, October 31, 2014

The place: La Pratolina, Roma, Italia.  Halloween isn’t celebrated as much in Italy as in the U.S. It is starting to catch on here-and-there especially with school parties, but then trick-or-treating is harder when everyone lives in an apartment building.  We saw a few kids in costume on our way home from work, and there was […]
