Rovente Pizza

October 1st, 2009


3240 SE Hawthorne Blvd

Rovente Pizza on Urbanspoon

Date of Visit: September 28, 2009

Cost for two: $15 (with leftovers)

West coast pizza places tend to have one thing in common: shitty pizza. So either Rovente is an exception, or I have been here too long, because I was pleasantly surprised with the offerings at this hole-in-the-wall pizza joint.

Rovente apparently as two locations in Portland. The one on Hawthorne is tiny, with only a few indoor bar seats to speak of. Most of the dining room is taken up by a huge glass case displaying the day’s pizza selections. Luckily, the day we hit up Rovente it was nice out, and we were able to take advantage of the few picnic tables that make up an outdoor seating area. Should the weather be more “classic Portland,” this place would be strictly take out.

So as I already mentioned, I liked the pizza. The crust was thin and crispy and it wasn’t too greasy, but what overall set it apart were the toppings. I got a “meat” slice with sausage, olives, pepperoni, onions and peppers, as well as a garlic chicken slice with a white sauce. The sausage chunks were big and flavorful, not like that ground up crap you sometimes find. My vegetarian compatriot was not as bowled over by his slices, a cheese and a veggie, which is why I credit the toppings for my enjoyment.

I asked and the cook if selections change from day to day, and he basically said it was depending on the cook. On the day we were there, the line up was pretty standard pizza toppings, but like I said, both slices I tried were good.

Veggie options: Yes, a couple, but not as glorious as for us meat eaters.

Speed: Yes.

    I have really noticed that credit score improvement activity really needs to be conducted with techniques. If not, you will probably find yourself destroying your rating. In order to realize your aspirations in fixing your credit score you have to be careful that from this second you pay your monthly fees promptly before their timetabled date. It is definitely significant given that by not accomplishing that, all other steps that you will decide to try to improve your credit positioning will not be successful. Thanks for revealing your suggestions.

    Thanks for your tips. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that banks plus financial institutions know the spending behavior of consumers plus understand that plenty of people max out and about their real credit cards around the trips. They correctly take advantage of this fact and then start flooding a person’s inbox and also snail-mail box using hundreds of 0 APR card offers shortly when the holiday season finishes. Knowing that should you be like 98% in the American public, you’ll leap at the chance to consolidate personal credit card debt and transfer balances towards 0 annual percentage rates credit cards.

After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I actually believed you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.
