This week's tablehopper: hot to trot.

Well, buon giorno to you. I hope you had a hearty or at least mildly fulfilling lunch, because today’s fresh meat review of Gioia Pizza might make you a little hangry. I also have some 707 news for you and a ticket giveaway in the sugar mama. Meow.

I was lucky to be invited to the five-year anniversary party for Farina on Tuesday evening, celebrating the launch of their beautiful new cookbook, Old World New: Family Meals from the Heart of Genoa, and the unveiling of their new rooftop terrace. Take a peek in the chatterbox for details since I wanted you to have some good alfresco intel for the weekend.

Well, I have a million things I need to do right now before heading out the door, so I am just going to sign off now. Time is in short supply for me these days.

Here’s wishing you a fabulous weekend! See you tonight at SummerTini?
