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. […]

Pizza D’Or, Antibes, France, May 28, 2016

I bought Ric a present before we left on our trip to France and Switzerland: Where to Eat Pizza by Daniel Young (available from Amazon.com and Amazon.it).  This is an insider’s guide with 1705 selections in 48 countries chosen by 121 regional experts and 956 pizza informants.

This is clearly a favorite with Italians from the area. […]

Celestina, January 30, 2015

Sometimes we just need to stay close to home for Friday night, especially when the weather is crappy and standing waiting for a tram is no fun. Neither is standing outside of favorite Dar Poeta in pouring rain, which we have done on occasion. So we tumbled down the hill to Viale dei Parioli and […]

Brancaleone, November 28, 2014

The name means “Paw of Lions” but the insignia is a whale’s tail. Someday I need to ask about the derivation of the name, but for now we are content to have good pizza here every-so-often. This place has grown on us over the course of many visits. The owners are always present and pleasant, […]
