Pizza in a Cave

There is pizza and then there is pizza.

Last night I was invited to have dinner with friends at a pizzeria in a cave. The restaurant is located in Brantome, France a beautiful village close to where I live. It is on a very narrow lane just off the main street leading into the town.

The restaurant is called La Vieux Four and is in what is called a Grottes Troglodytes. These grottes were inhabited in the middle ages and have many rooms. The ceilings are low as would be expected inside a cave. The pizza is cooked in a wood burning oven carved into the cave wall.

This incredible restaurant is a must see if you are ever in this area.
