Spizza for Friends

Barbara Pizza - Tomato, Mozzarella, Hot Italian minced Pork, Shallots & Olives

Spizza had always been one of the better pizza places around town, featuring thin crusts and decently good ingredients. Today we opted for the Barbara (they name their pizzas after Italian women), which consisted of tomato, mozzarella, hot Italian minced pork, shallots, and olives. It was fine - nothing outstanding, but definitely much better than some of the other stuff out there.

Tullio - toasted wholemeal baguette Bruschetta with tomato and garlicOther items were a mixed bag. The bruschetta (named Tullio here), while tasty, was a bit too salty - and strangely on wheat bread too (the greasiness of Porta Porta's would be preferred). Interestingly, they also had cioppino under the name Trovatore. It was a far cry from what you would get in San Francisco (especially in terms of size), but nonetheless I ate it all. Well, this was all still very edible and above average, but none so outstanding that I would go out of my way for it.
