A Little Italian -- Eating
81 Tho Nhuom Street
How's the pizza? If one suspends the memory of the typical American version, A Little Italian's pizza is a great pie that doesn't take itself too seriously. The Margarita has a thick doughy crust and cheddar cheeses from France and Australia. The "Fisho Pizza" has prawns and tuna with a dash of lemon juice. The "Chilio Oo" is spiced up with capsicum, the operative ingredient in Tabasco sauce.
"The fresh basil comes from a plantation on my window sill and the sauce is made from tinned tomatoes," says proprietor May. Prices are moderate: $4 for a small and $8 for a large. American money is accepted as readily as dong as long as the bills are in good condition.
