Dinner For Six

 Early in the spring, Chisinau was blessed with the opening of a new pizza place.  Like most cities, Chisinau has a lot of pizza joints, including a few local chains that deliver.  None of them, however, compare to Pizza Caruso.  For one thing, Caruso uses -real- cheese.  For another, it's owned and run by an Italian/Moldovan couple who keep their quality high.

While their salads could use a little love (Moldova's not known for salads.  Lettuce is a garnish.), the pizzas are excellent.  They're thin, hand made crust with tomato sauce, cheese, and various toppings of choice.  You can see from the table shots that the pizzas are big, too.  A small costs about $5 and is 30 cm or so in diameter.  A large is huge.  The bottom picture is of some lasagne that one of our table ordered.  He said it was very good!
