Dinner Out


Above, the sign for one of the best places we have been to eat (and we have now been there twice because we like it so much): Pizzeria Remo, located in our neighborhood in Testaccio.

After our first foray, we learned some of the ins-and-outs, including how to order, and what was available. The table next to us ordered fried antipasti and had fruit for dessert--strawberries and, as you can see below, pineapple. At left, the artistic presentation before we devoured it. When I ordered "un ananas," Jess pointed out it was possible I had ordered A WHOLE pineapple, not just a quartered one! We were relieved to get the cut and quartered one :) At right, after it's been devoured. It's even artistic after it's been eaten!
