I'm being as real as you.
I'm glad it works in Italy. It's a cute little novelty, but I'm not interested. It reminds me of CiCi's. Small little slices. Bleack.
Besides, pizza in Italy is quite different from US pizza. Some Pizza in Italy is like foccacia bread. So, I can see why it works in italy. But I wouldn't expect a slice of Ray's pizza to be paid for by the pound. I'm only using Ray's as an example of NY style pizza - there's better, but it's a good example of the typical slice emporium pizza in NY. IMO,, pay by the pound for this type of pizza, would be a bad idea. As I said, Sicilian style or foccacia types of pizza might be different. But, since I eat NY Style almost exclusively, I'm not buying into it.
Nothing against Italy, or those who like buying pizza by the pound. Just not my cup of tea. Like I said, it also may largely be due to the fact that I equate paying food by the pound/ounce to be second rate lunch food, due to DC being a haven for those kind of lunch places.
