Almost like the real thing

To accidentally celebrate our Italy trip anniversary, we spent the afternoon in a spot we’re determined to visit more often.

Little italy

I knew it was going to be good when I got out of the car and heard a group of men arguing and joking boisterously in Italian.

My immediate thought, “Where is the pizza?”

Pizzagasm

There’s something truly magical about pizza with an egg cracked in the middle. In my mind, just for a little while, I could hear the live accordion music and remember the equally cheap and delicious house wine.
