Via degli Scipioni, 248, 00192 Roma RM, Italy
Amazing people and pizza. We ate there our first night in Rome, and went back the next. My family and I will always have fond memories of this place, and it was amazing how the people there made you feel like family when you walked in. One of the few things we wish had locally when we got home.
We really enjoyed, small place, excellent quality of food and service. You need reservation because the place is always full in advance. Attended by the owner
Very good pizza. The only place where we were asked for tips(cash only) by the waiters. Considering we paid for the meal by a credit card it makes me wonder if tips were optional.
Good Pinsa. Nice staff. Always full, I advise to reserve a table or else it is difficult to find a table at the last minute.
Every once in a while my wife and I find a place that is really special. This is such a place. It's on a side street and looks nothing special from the outside. It's not even big. Inside is a place where people care about food and the customer experience. They only do pizza and have about 30 different versions on the menu using interesting combinations of regional cheeses, meats and vegetables. They use quality ingredients and start to prepare their dough 48 hours in advance to ensure that their pizza base is as near perfect as possible. They also develop their own recipes, experimenting with ingredients such as wild boar sausage, fennel, artichokes, cheeses and several mushrooms to find interesting combinations. Their wines are good quality too. The owner is very hands-on, taking care that everyone has a good meal, chatting with the customers and overseeing the staff and kitchens. He even suggests which wines would go with which pizzas, not to sell the expensive wines but to make sure that the flavours are compatible (he pointed us towards a cheaper wine!). The amazing this is that its not as expensive as other local restaurants, which is probably why they've been going for 18 years. If you're in Rome this is a place that you must visit. Arrive early or book ahead because it fills really quickly.
