    Pizza Report # 3 from Adam

    de Matteo
    Via Tribunale, 93/94

    This is certainly one of my favorites in town, and I
    don't think I'm the only one! This is the place where,
    in the 1994 G7 meetings, Bill Clinton came when he
    wanted to try pizza Napolitano style. The front
    entrance is very narrow and completley unasuming- it
    is far from a 'fancy' place, but no one seems to mind.
    At the entrance way they have a counter that faces out
    to the street and they sell small pizzettas to go, as
    well as pizzas in boxes, and some fried treats such
    as: panzarotti- (small potato/cheese fingers),
    eggplant, and zeppole.

    Margarita or Marinara - 3 euro
    (it seems to be the going price on the street)
    one oven, 2 levels for dining (again)

    I ordered the Marinara. My best one so far. I also got
    to sample a Margarita with smoked Provalone instead of
    Mozzerella, custom ordered (not by me!) by my friend
    Maurizio. Both were excellent and just the way I would
    want a pizza to be. Of course, Ernesto Cacialli is no
    longer the pizzaiolo at DeMatteo as he has opened his
    own shop (P.R #2) but they don't seem to miss him
    This will be my last reort from via Tribunale, but not
    my last visit. Domane, I hope to get to daMichele for
    P.R.#4... until then, keep a hot fire and a clean oven

    highly recommended.
