Treforni (wood oven pizza) now open in South Durham

LBD | Apr 16, 2016 11:54 AM

Got a text from a friend yesterday who lives nearby that Treforni had opened and loved it. Even though I had dinner at Mercato ( that crispy pork ciccioli, damn! ) just last night I stopped by Treforni for lunch today to check it out.

I got a margherita and it was very good. It wasn't quite as crisp/charred in spots as what I had at Mercato and was a little soggy in the center ( see the Bella Mia thread ) but I'm sure ordering well done is an option.

I would definitely give the edge to Mercato but I live much closer to Treforni. It was very good though and I will be back but when I get an itch for old school by the slice pizza it wont scratch the same way Randy's does.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
