At night, in Trastevere, you could never be faulted for just choosing any restaurant and going inside – the choice of places to eat is somewhat overwhelming. But with a little research, you can find places like Dar Poeta, where the ambiance is good, the service is friendly and fast, and the food is great. […]

September 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Look – it’s easy to find good pizza in Rome. But this was exceptionally good pizza. Roscioli is both a bakery and a very high-end food store/restaurant located near Campo de’ Fiori.

Pizzeria Uno

T: Finally, this was the deep-dish experience that I was looking for. Another friend now living in Chicago agreed to hit this place up for lunch and we made it there today. They were busy, so we pre-ordered a small “Numero Uno” deep-dish (sausage, pepperoni, onions, peppers, mushrooms and our unique chunky tomato sauce; topped […]

Gino’s East Pizza

November 27th, 2007 · No Comments

D: A venerable Chicago institution which had to move into a larger space due to its popularity although they moved many of the old graffiti-covered walls and booths to add to the atmosphere.
