Marisco na Praca – Cascais

A buzzing restaurant in the food market of Cascais When our surf teacher heard we love seafood, he told us about Marisco na Praca. This seafood restaurant is located nearby Pateo do Petisco, in the food market of Cascais. The market itself was slightly quiet. Probably because everyone was in this restaurant! A buzzing sound…

Coffin Sally – Port Fairy – Australia

A beautiful place. When you walk the streets at 8pm on a Tuesday night, you would think you’re the only living soul on the streets that night. But open the door towards the bar and restaurant of Coffin Sally, and you will know where the people hang around. Coffin Sally offers great pizza and a…

La Bimba – Great ocean road – Australia

It was delicious. We were sent to La Bimba by the owner of Ipsos, another great restaurant at the Great ocean road. We were lucky to have a table for two with no reservation. Although it was a Monday evening, in a small town, the place was full. Booking is recommended. At La Bimba everything…

La Zanzara – Rome

We were on our way to find something to eat. Convinced that we wouldn’t find it there. Too close to the Vatican crowed that we just escaped after our visit. We passed by. And we returned. There was an Italian buzz,  a terrace with 2 free tables, a nice interior. A lot of Italians took…

Armando al Pantheon – Rome

The opposite of the tourist trap: excellent value for money, authentic food, great service and all that right in the center of historic Rome.

We went for Spaghetti alla carbonara, Melanzane, Roman style artichokes, Saltimbocca alla Romana, etc….

Is Pizzarium the best Roman Pizza? – Rome

Many say the pizzas at Pizzarium from Gabriele Bonci are the best you can find. What do you think? We are still hesitating between this place and the more traditional pizzas at Forno Campo de’ Fiori . We went for both and we think you should too. Go to Forno for a taste of pure roman pizza tradition and…
