Excellent Italian restaurant—Hamburg

Capriccio on Grossneumarkt street is a real find. I can’t remember when I’ve had such a perfect pizza, with tomato sauce, mozzarella and delicious crust forming a tasty but subtle background for the toppings. The small salad was plenty for one (or more). Excellent wine, and an extremely courteous, welcoming and professional staff.

That’s a great recommendation. We’ve had great meals in countries where the cuisine isn’t traditionally part of the country we’re visiting. An Italian restaurant in London, a Greek place in Vienna, a Thai restaurant in Bruges, Belgium.

Thinking about it some more, there was also a fabulous Spanish restaurant in London - but they were closing and moving back to Spain the following week, and a Belgian restaurant in London, and a Sicilian one (another Italian place), and Korean . . .

Several Indian restaurants in the U.K., too - but maybe those can be now considered part of standard British fare. I guess we’ve gone to a lot of restaurants in London that didn’t serve “”English” food. Cosmopolitan cities like Hamburg understandably have more than just “German” restaurants. Good to know Capriccio is a good one!
