What you need to know before your trail

When Lucy heads to Rome for the summer, she’s is in for pizza, pasta, and a little amore. Lucia “Lucy” Rossi thought she was going to be a camp counselor for the summer, but, thanks to a very fortunate twist, she ends up in Rome, Italy, helping out at her aunt’s restaurant, Amore Pizzeria. Lucy can’t wait to see some ruins, eat all the gelato she can, and maybe say a few buongiornos to some cute Italian boys.

But Lucy arrives to Italian trouble. Her aunt is in danger of losing her business, thanks to a flashy new pizzeria down the road that is all style, but no substance. In order to try and save the shop, Lucy decides to employ a very unique version of matchmaking–making matches based on customer’s pizza preferences. Soon, word of the American matchmaker gets out, and it looks like the business might be saved! Or so she thought–until someone decides to try and sabotage the newfound success of Amore pizza. Can Lucy figure out who might be behind everything? Or will her family being saying ciao to Amore Pizzeria for good?

Travel Guide


Whilst Rome is the background in this novel, there’s not a great deal of scene setting in the novel. The friends pass by many places and mention them in some way or talk about them when at home, but this is not a guide to the city.

It could be a nice guide to get to know the pizza places around the main tourist sites though. The book mentions the fictional pizzeria as being close to the Ponte Principe  and so that would be a good start to find your favourite pizza places. There are many of them!
