Roscioli’s, you made all my pizza dreams come true. || Rome, Italy • • • I came to our Italy trip with only one, very simple, requirement: Eat Pizza in Naples. I mean, I LOVE pizza. Like really love. So it made logical sense to eat pizza, my favorite food, in the very place it was created. And then Marcella, the driver we hired to drive us to eat said pizza, happened. And through a series of unfortunate events we did not make it to eat pizza in Naples before our train left for Rome. And I was sad, like the kind of sad that may have resulted in a few tears being shed over not eating pizza in its birthplace. • • • And then, we did what you have to do while traveling and rolled with the punches. We quickly found a new spot and my favorite pizza of our tour of Italy. And this place picked a girl up when she was down 😂 Thank goodness for @bestpizza33 and his recommendations. And the guy in the second picture for introducing me to cold Roman pizza and not judging me when I went back for seconds. 🍕🥫🧀
