Al Forno Fridays Poolside Pizza at the Viceroy Santa Monica
Hmm, pizza by the pool just sounds weird to me but Viceroy Santa Monica somehow is making it work with the launch of its Al Forno Fridays where you can enjoy a gourmet “poolsize” pizza from Whist executive chef, Tony DiSalvo. Pizzas ($10-$17) include oven roasted tomatoes, burrata, basil and sausage, salami, prosciutto, pancetta, tomato, mozzarella.
