Tiramisu tour around Rome

I love to watch worth it on YouTube, and that is why we decided to do the same in Rome but with Tiramisu. We selected 3 different tiramisus at 3 difference prices around Rome and this is our results:

Two Sizes: Don’t let the name fool you. Actually this is a small place, there is only one table, in the middle of the city center. It is easy to find due the amount of people in front. The Italian lady is there making all kinds of Tiramisu flavors in small cups. We got the classic one and the pistachio one. Please, if you can only choose one go for the classic one, is to die for! It was definitely made with mascarpone cheese, so creamy and the coffee taste was strong but well paired with the cocoa.

Price: $ ( small 2,5 euros, big 3,5 and mini 1,5)

Pistachio tiramisu

Pompi: Doing a quick research on the internet, I found this place as one of the best tiramisus in Rome. So, after visiting Vatican city, we went to the nearest one in Vía Cola di Rienzo. The tiramisu was already packed, and for our surprise, the place wasn’t full. Pompi also serves other kinds of pastries, but definitely, the Tiramisu is the best seller. Regarding the tiramisu, the cream was white and light, certainly, it has some whipped cream.

The shape was a rectangle, making the layers a little bit thinner, so you can try all the layers in a scoop. It was a good tiramisu but not the best in my opinion. I think it tastes more like the one you can find in a supermarket, and definitely by the presentation, it was not the fresher one in town.

Price: $$ (4 euros)

Classic Tiramsu

Ristorante RomAntica: This was our last stop in Rome. We had dinner here with a 50% discount with The Fork (thanks to this app with going to fancy restaurants :)) We got some pasta, but we definitely were curious about a fancier Tiramisu. The place, in general, is romantic, as the name suggested, the Romanian decoration transported us to another place. The prices were OK for a restaurant in Rome, and the service was perfect, I like when the staff already applies the discount without any comments.

We had the Tiramisu for sharing and it came in decorated glass. The flavors and colors suggested that was an old recipe, with the right ingredients and the way normally the Italian families eat it at home.

Price: $$$ (6 euros, plus coperto)

Classic Tiramsu

Final Verdict: My favorite was the Two Sizes one, it was good quality, price, and presentation. My second favorite was the one from RomAntica, homemade recipe and the ambiance made everything even more special.

This article is base on my opinion. Please let me know yours, or give me other places where I can try more in Rome.

Happy eating!

Pizzas in Napoli and Caserta

I lived for 6 months in Napoli, and that experience basically ruined pizza forever. It has been really hard for me to find a good pizza outside Campania, but well I have to survive somehow.

This is the list of my favorites places to have pizza in Napoli and Caserta:

Napoli

Pizza Da Attilio: Just in the next to the Quartieri Spagnoli, there is this pizza place with creative forms of pizza. It is not so popular, so you can find a place easily, different from other places, such as Da Michele and Gino Sorbillo. I recommend Pizza Carnavale, star shape pizza with sausage bell pepper and every corner filled with ricotta. I also tried the Diavola and the Pizza Fiore (vegetarian and tasty option)

Price: $$ (every pizza is around 8 euros)

50 Kalò: This place is a little bit fancier, it is the kind of place where you go for a date and have an amazing pizza. Also, it is where all the Neapolitan families go. Any pizza is good here, but my favorite is the Margherita con Bufala.

Price: Medium $$ (Any kind around 9 euros, the expensive part are the beverages and the coperto)

L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele: An obvious one, famous because the simplicity and the movie Eat, Pray and Love. They even have a photo in a wall of Julia Roberts eating there. Well, it is famous for a reason, or many of them. For me, this is my favorite Margherita in town, simple but well done. The tomato sauce is fresh, the size is big and the crust is crunchy. The menu consists of only 3 types of pizzas, marinara (only tomato without cheese) Margherita and Margherita with double cheese. Do not fall for this one, we measured it and actually, it has basically the same amount of cheese than the normal Margherita, so is easier for them just to have two types of pizza, that is why the service is so fast. Another advice: Go in the afternoon, around 3 pm take a number and go for a beer and then return. If you go at night it is almost impossible to grab a number before they close. Also, only locals know that actually you can skip the line and have it take away, anyways the place is so crowded that actually you won´t miss eating inside.

Price: Cheap $ (Around 4 euros, or 4.5 with the “extra cheese”

Margherita with double cheese

Gino Sorbillo: Another famous for a good reason! The magic about this place is the ingredients and the combinations. There are two locals in Napoli, the one at via dei Tribunali (the famous one, it is very charming) and the one via Partenope (the touristy one for the cruises, the atmosphere is more like a fast food restaurant). The first one maintains the same prices (around 9 euros per pizza), the second one has higher prices but is less crowded. Both keep the same recipes, so the experience is good as well. The best one for me is the Margherita DOP or the one with pesto and cherry tomatoes.

Price: $$ (Around 10 euros)

Pizzeria ‘Ntretella: This one is good as well and it has a romantic decoration. My favorite was the one with the fresh tomatoes (Margherita al pomodorino fresco e buffala). Only one advice, Napolitans know that the Quartieri Spagnoli could be dangerous at night. This pizza place is just in the entrance of that neighborhood if you go try to visit during the day.

Price: $$ (Around 6 euros each pizza)

Margherita al pomodorino fresco e buffala

Caserta

If you have in your plans to go to Caserta (and you should, the palace is breathtaking!) there are very good pizza places around here. Actually, Neapolitans know that the best buffalo cheese (real Mozzarella) is from this region. We were so lucky to arrive exactly the weekend of the Pizza Expo (Around the end of July). Therefore, we ate pizza until we were sick of it. These are some of the examples you can find there.

But, if you are not that lucky you can always go to :

I Masanielli di Francesco Martucci: A very famous place. The decoration reminded me of a family friendly restaurant, mostly visited by locals. We tried two kinds, the Margherita (we like to compare a basic one) and a signature one of the restaurants (Misticanza).

Price: $$ (around 9 euros the expensive one)

Misticanza

Well, these were my favorites pizzas in Napoli, your welcome 🙂

Happy eating!
