I took the opportunity of my my visit to Mariko the other day to have lunch at a small bur busy pizzeria, Il Brulo!
One of its main attractions is a beautiful and cute small tree park which changes colors with the seasons!
The building used to be a Japanese-style cafe!
Il Brolo is equipped with a wood oven for entirely home-made pizzas!
They have some interesting (and very popular) set lunches. We opted for one with a tomato pasta, the other one with a Margharita Pizza and a glass of wine each.
Incidentally, you may order from the carte even at lunch!
The antipasti misto!
Fresh salad for good overall balance!
Brocoli, kabocha and fritata!
The tomato pasta, very mild in taste!
The Margherita Pizza!
For a better look of a healthy pizza!
The dessert: sweet potato cake and banana ice-cream!
And a true expresso to finish it all!
See you at dinner next time!
