So my pizza craving took me to Old Town, Portland. We were on our way to Voodoo Doughnut when we learnt about their 45 min wait, so we decided we should probably eat before we go wait in line. We chose this place as it looked authentic, with a stone oven for pizza.
Via Tribunali - Specialita' Della Casa
(provola, ricotta, rapini, sausage, cherry tomatoes, arugula, fresh mozzarella, basil, grana padano)
(prosciutto cotto, oven-roasted mushrooms, salame piccante, pomodoro, fresh mozzarella, basil, grana padano )
* We also had Bruchetta, however I did not get a chance to snap a picture.

Conclusion: Best pizza I've had! We came here not knowing the size of the pizza, when we asked if 2 was enough for the 3 of us we were told that each one was made for 1 person. We were not that hungry so we got 2. It was still too much, we were all stuffed, leaving no room for doughnuts.
The Via Tribunali was a big surprise, we did not to find cheese and veggies stuffed and wrapped inside the pizza. It is rare to find salad pizzas, this has to be one of my all time favourites.
The Quatro Stagioni was so different from the pizzas I'm used to. It was so thin I could not pick it up and bite, I had to eat with a fork and knife. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining because it was just as unique and equally good!
Lastly the waiter was so kind! The food came out really fast and he kept walking by to check on us. (I eat in Richmond a lot and good service is hard to come by)
