Ah Pizza, old world comfort food. It’s hard to imagine anyone not enjoying (althoughI’m sure they exist) that gooey goodness of hot cheeses, meats, mushrooms and all kinds of other toppings, set lovingly on perfectly cooked pizza dough. Pizza is one of those European inspired foods that as Americans we have embraced and in many ways made our own. But there is a new place in town that holds true to its’ old world tradition and is reaping the benefits from it. Piero Pierattoni, owner of long standing Ristorante Mama Gina in Palm Desert, has opened his new venture Piero’s Pizza Vino just across the street on El Paseo with classic Napolitano style Pizza and other Italian specialties. The Pizza gets special attention as it is cooked in an imported oven straight from Naples itself,assuring the Pizza will be cooked to perfection in about 2 minutes. Take that Dominos! My personal favorites are the Funghi e Burrata (tomato, mushroom medley w/Burrata cheese) withadded sausage, and the Quattro Fromaggi (Gorgonzola, Parmesan, Mozzarella, Taleggio) w/rawhoney. Also, the Asparagus wrapped w/Pancetta, and Fried baby Artichokes w/ Goat cheese are fantastic appetizers. The bar is cozy and lovely to share an intimate bite with friends or your special Pizza partner. Come check out this new found Palm Springs Local favorite, and taste what Pizza was meant to be. Ciao!
