Ho Fame! – Orvieto, Italia – 26 settembre 2015

A girl can’t live on caffè, biscotti, e vino alone – although I tried. So, after being told not to be fooled by its name, I called Pizzeria Charlie for a reservation. (A reservation for a pizzeria? Sheesh!) They told me they were completo (full). I ignored that and walked the maze of streets to this ristorante.

It was almost empty when I arrived. They sat me without il meno. I waited about 20 minutes and finally asked for one. Eventually, I got a beer and a pizza.  I thought I had been slighted when I saw the pizza wasn’t cut into slices.  Turns out, Italians eat pizza with a knife and fork!  Since it’s gauche to ask for a ‘doggie bag’, I ate the whole darn thing!
