Fast forward to about a year and a half ago when my best friend and I were trying to think of where to have dinner. He suggested Andiamo and I said, "FUCK NO." To which he replied, "Para de comer tanta mierda and lets go. Find your big girl panties, put them on and enjoy the god-damn pizza." Like a scolded child, I begrudgingly agreed to go. We walked up to the restaurant and nothing had changed, the out door seating with picnic tables, the giant tv screen hanging between two palm trees, it was all the same. I could start to feel a knot in my stomach and for some reason I couldn't shake the panic that I might bump into my ex. Then I realized, I was the pendeja. Not him. I had given him so much power that he even dictated where I ate even years after the relationship had ended. My best friend was right, I was comiendo mierda.
With that realization a sudden weight was lifted off my shoulders and then a resounding calm. Just like that, I was back to loving the pizza at Andiamo. My personal favorite isn't exactly on the menu, a secret menu item of sorts. It's the Quattro Formaggi pizza with tomato sauce. The pizza normally comes topped with Parmesan, Mozzarella, Ricotta and Gorgonzola cheeses as well as garlic and basil. It tastes great on its own, but adding the tomato sauce just makes it a hundred times better and balances it all out.
