Ooh, my favorite!


Pizzeria Picco

Not the greatest pictures (from my phone) but I had to share because we had quite a lovely Sunday, complete with the most awesome dessert I’ve had in a while.

A trip out to Larkspur to visit our friend Dom quickly turned into a lunch date when I realized Pizzeria Picco was right down the street. Foodie Friend Brian had been talking about this place for a while, but I just hadn’t had the chance to make my way up north until yesterday.

It was a beautiful day and the pizza was great! Oh how I love wood fired pizza. (For my Seattle friends, it was very similar to Tutta Bella. But only the Columbia City location, not the others which are just not as good.) I was so busy eating that I didn’t take pics of the watermelon feta salad, or the burrata beet crostini, or the bacon braised kale pizza. I did however remember to take a pic of the tiny remaining pieces of the margherita pizza with calabrian chilis on the side.

I had been eyeing the dessert menu before we even left the house, and was especially intrigued by one of their specialties: organic Straus Dairy soft serve ice cream drizzled with DaVero extra virgin olive oil topped with a light sprinkling of sea salt. I was all set to order when this magically appeared after a mix-up on a different order. What a happy coincidence!

The ice cream was wonderfully smooth but also had the perfect amount of bite; I could almost chew it and that was a beautiful thing. The sweet and savory flavors were perfect: the olive oil was silky and fragrant and the granules of sea salt offered a bit of crunch and a great counterpoint to the sweetness of the ice cream. Ah, so happy!

Another lovely weekend come and gone…I can’t believe it’s Monday again.

Hey, thank you so much. I’m glad you like it here. :) I’ll have to be better about snapping a shot pre-pig out.
