If you have eaten at a Roman restaurant at any point in the past 10 years, you have probably asked yourself what the hell people are talking about when they bang on about locals eating small portions.

I am super excited to announce some upcoming summer events! On July 22, I will be hosting a pizza party at Razza in Jersey City, NJ with Dan Richer, baker extraordinaire. We will be serving Dan’s famous bread and butter, pizzas, and farm fresh salads alongside some stellar artisanal beers. We are going to let the season decide the menu based on what is available that week from Jersey’s own Ralston Farm. UPDATE: The Razza event is sold out!

Back in Rome, I am offering special visits on June 4 to two sites normally closed to the public. The first, which will begin at 1:30pm, is to the Circus Maximus Mithraeum, a religious sanctuary buried 30 feet underground. The cavernous ruin, which was dedicated to the god Mithras, dates back to the early Imperial period and preserves ancient reliefs.
At 3:00pm on June 4, I will lead a special visit to the Tomb of the Scipios, one of the most important Republican era funeral sites. Located in a prestigious ancient cemetery, the Tomb of the Scipios was the final resting place of war heroes and generals, including Lucius Cornelius Scipio Barbatus (you may have seen his sarcophagus in the Vatican Museums), not to mention the poet Ennius.
Please note that places are limited and bookings to each site are sold separately.
Last month, Pizzarium, Gabriele Bonci’s landmark pizza by the slice place, closed for a shockingly brief renovation. In a matter of a couple of weeks, the popular hole-in-the-wall expanded into the neighboring space (a recently shuttered barber shop), doubling Pizzarium’s size. While the previous incarnations of Pizzarium were (more…)
