Roman Pizza That Doesn’t Overachieve

3 Nov

Seen in the San Giovanni neighborhood:

“So, how’s the pizza?”
“Ah, not so good, eh?”
“No, it’s OK.”

Runner-up for today’s post: Pizza Buona (Good Pizza) on Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

“How’s the pizza?”
“It’s good.”
“Just good?”
“Just good.”

    Aren’t there a couple of OK Pizzas in Rome?
    I recall having seen some around the city.

    André: I’ve only seen this one. As far as I know it isn’t a chain. Could just be that several pizza shop owners aren’t overachievers and chose the same name.

    Too funny…but I see it as an efficient use of very limited sign space. 🙂

    here is an OK Pizza in Florence and my husband and I were always joking about the name, price… (How’s the pizza? “OK.” How are the prices “OK. Not great. Not the best, but OK”) It always made us laugh. Hope you got some laughter out of it as well.

    If you name your place, ‘ok pizza’ then you don’t have as much to live up to as, say, ‘the world’s best pizza.’

    I live around the corner from a Happy Pizza. I guess they’re all about the attitude.

    Cute post! 🙂

    net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
    of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using

    After you discover the secrets to effective guitar practicing, it will get easier to progress more quickly
    as a musician. In fact, you can probably already start
    writing good rhythm guitar ideas with just a fundamental understanding
    of power chords and open chords. The expansion of the electric guitar is the most recent transformation as well as it has a wide effect on the popularity of
    the guitar.

    When I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment
    is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    Even though they might do this one time for the wedding, I think there
    can be addictive qualities to these diets, and
    I think that someone might continue to do something like this.

    Although special diet and workout plans have been devised for sufferers of this condition, these techniques do
    not work for all people. Get on the path to spiritual
    growth so you can heal the emotional and external reasons you.

    Appreciating the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you

    information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my
    Google account.
