LIMERICK shoppers enjoyed a tasty surprise this Friday, as leading Italian restaurenteur Vincenzo Del Santo gave out pizzas in Thomas Street.

Vincenzo, who runs Da Vincenzo’s food and wine hall in the George Hotel, Shannon Street, had the ovens on from the early morning in preparation for cooking up a storm in the city.

He was celebrating International Pizza Day, which celebrates the iconic Italian dish.

Among the favourite dishes served by Vincenzo are flavoursome deep pan and delicious thin Italian crusts. But there is a pizza to suit all tastes!
