The pizza trek continues

Posted By on Fri, Nov 6, 2009 at 8:55 AM


I continue to indulge myself both by eating and by preserving the memories of my trip to Italy in a few photos. At top, an arugula pizza from a century-old pizzeria in Rome, Da Rici (or Est! Est! Est! -- it serves gallons of the mellow white wine known by the same name).


Then there's one of the best pizzas of the trip, the diavola from Da Rici, with spicy salami, somewhat like pepperoni and hot chili oil for added condiment. These pizzas cost around 7 euros.


Then, a break from pizza, with slices of roast veal, roasted potatoes, impossibly sweet steamed pearl onions and garnish at Sabatini, a venerable restaurant in the Trastavere neighborhood of Rome. Not cheap -- about 14 euros, but rich and filling.
