      Keith Preble recommended Al Grottino

      Located in the San Giovanni district, this pizzeria serves up a unique pizza that you are not likely to find anywhere else in Rome. It's not Roman, it's not Neapolitan -- it is its own special blend ... read more
      of flours to make a unique pizza crust that is light and flavorful. After exploring San Giovanni and the many churches in the area, book a table at this pizzeria for a relaxing evening. The pizzeria is always full of locals, and it is one of the most popular restaurants in the area. For those who love beer, ask for the iPad with the beer menu. They have dozens of artisan beers that go well with many of their unique and interesting pizzas.

      You'll like this pizza place, I am sure. It's not hard to reach -- just take Metro A to either "San Giovanni" or "Re di Roma" stop, and it is just a short walk away.

      Convenient to the Quirinal Palace. Probably the best cappuccino in Rome. Good pastries too and cheap for location. Hole in the wall gem which is worth a look in.

      Really nice atmosphere and hard to argue with the social mission of the place. But the food is uneven. First course was excellent, pasta average, meat unremarkable, tiramisu excellent. But ymmv.

    • Da MicheleVia dell'Umiltà 31, Rome 00187, Italy
      Keane recommended Da Michele

      Da Michele is located two blocks away from the Fontana di Trevi, making it less crowded than the other pizzerie nearby. Their ingredients are listed on the menu board, and there are very few: flour, ... read more
      salt, water and a two others I can't remember. Bottom line: This pizza is classically made. While it isn't a perfectly refined slice, they certainly hit the spot if you're hungry. I ordered a slice of the stuffed spinach pizza and one smaller slice of the Margherita. I was stuffed like a moose in the Pacific Northwest. This is saying a lot as I hadn't eaten all day. The cost was 6,67, approximately. Bottles of beer, seemingly big if the ones along the wall are something to go by, cost 3,50. Da Michele serves other items like supplì (1) and crochetti as well. If you need a small snack or a filling slice of no-nonsense pizza near the Trevi Fountain, Da Michele is your spot.

      I've eaten my fair share of pizza al taglio across Rome, and I have to say that Pizzeria Florida serves some of the best, no-nonsense slices in town. Prices are low and the flavor is high. The ... read more
      Margherita was particularly tasty, though I suggest not eating it folded lest you want to have sweet juice dripping all over your clothes.

      Great spot for truly Roman porchetta panini. Er Buchetto is cheap, the service is prompt and it's located conveniently close to Termini. I feel like I had a different experience from those who ... read more
      recommended it to me, as they described getting freshly sliced and curated porchetta panini. While my panino was tasty, he simply handed it to me from a collection of pre-made sandwiches, so it wasn't warm or anything. Still, it was delicious. The porchetta wasn't TOO fatty, and there was a nice balance of flavor. It's a great choice for a cheap and filling meal.

      I like to think the best things in life are simple and uncomplicated, that these moments are so pure, none of the distractions of everyday life could possibly contaminate. This is how I feel about ... read more
      Gelateria Fatamorgana. It was by far the best gelato I had during my two months in Italy. I liked Giolitti. I loved Corona. Old Bridge was alright. But Fatamorgana won me over with its amazing flavors, fresh flavors and its beautiful location in Monti. I tried the basil with honey and walnuts and the Syrian pistachio, enjoyed along the stone wall in Piazza degli Zingari. The lamps of Monti illuminated the warm Roman night as a couple sat to my left, a family with children to my right. I enjoyed those two flavors as slowly as possible. A dream. I could not have picked a better final gelato moment in Rome.

      When people say Pizzarium is expensive, they mean compared to other pizzerie. But Pizzarium is not just any pizzeria! They devote themselves to the art of breadmaking, and the toppings they use are ... read more
      more unique than anything you'll find anywhere else. I ordered a slice of ham and minced fish (I don't actually know the specifics since he spoke so fast) and a slice of Parmigiano-Reggiano, tomatos and herbs. Both were fantastic, though I really wish I went with something wilder with the latter option. You can really taste the bread. Service? Fantastic. The guy behind the counter was all smiles, explanations and friendliness. The cassiera could've been a bit more warm, but hey, you get used to this after awhile... Roma. The pizzeria is located just a block away from the Cipro Metro, so it's incredibly easy to get to if you're Metro-friendly. If you like pizza, you must come here. I'm already thinking about my next visit.

      best I've had. The meat is juicy, the bread (made by Bonci of Pizzarium) is soft and flavorful, and the mozzarella and basil... delicious. Pair that with some of the best potato chips and finest ketchup in the universe, and a huge selection of craft beers from around the world (including several selections from Italy), and you have an amazing meal. All beers cost only 5 per serving, which is a better price than pretty much every other pub in Centro Storico. You MUST come here if you love beer. Aim for noontime if you'd rather not wait with the night crowd.
