Pizzas, who doesn’t love them? Now, what about wood-fired pizza? Yep, I’m salivating too! Well you lucky north-siders, there’s a pizzeria called Shop 225 which is located on the main street of Melville Road (park on the side peeps!) which not only serves up wood-fired pizza but they’re also VEGAN and VEGETARIAN friendly!! It’s a cosy little joint so first in first served bros.
It was our last night in Rome which meant our last night of our amazing European holiday and I was getting a little sad with the quality of food I was encountering. Mr D and I both agreed that we’re going to go away from the main roads and straight into the alley ways (recommend going into alleyway with another person…not alone haha). After what seemed like HOURS of walking, we stumbled across this quaint and adorable place where the signage was of a robin in a tux (HOW ADORABLE IS THAT?) and they only had an italian menu. This place gave me a good feeling so in we went.
It was dinner time and Mr D and I promised ourselves we would stray from the main street but we were so tired we just dropped into the first place we saw – La Cucina Nazionale. Now, we were greeted warmly and that was about the service we got (step up your game Rome!). The interior was lovely and there was such a happy vibe and it cheered me up a bit.
For our last night in Florence I felt much better so we decided to venture into alleyways and steer away from the tourist main roads. I’m so glad we chose to do that because BAM we ran into La Grotta Guelfa and sure, it looks like every other pizza joint but I was too tired to go any further so in we went.
For our last night in Venice Mr D and I walked around the streets to find a super cute place for dinner. Mr D didn’t want to go since I forgot the map (oopsie daisies) and we landed at Ristorante Da Sabrina.
We finally arrived in Venice and it was super late (not really super, maybe just 6PM..but I eat at grandma time!) so we asked the concierge at our hotel to recommend a place and they suggested Al Giardinetto da Severino which was literally down the road.
