Between the Colosseum and St. Peter in Chains - Great Pizza.

Don't need to speak Italian - just point to the type of pizza slice you want and it's placed in the oven and and a few minutes later, you're in pizza heaven.

Very 'rustic' but excellent food, highly recommend sandwiches and pastries for breakfast. The porchetta is a particular favourite!

After a long day at the Colosseum, me and my partner stumbled upon this place while looking for somewhere to have lunch. Large selection of pizzas which are sold by weight. Unlike many snack shops, has space to eat both inside and outside. Would recommend the place to anyone near the Colosseum area.

This great little pizza shop was across from our hotel, so we gave it a try. Purchase the pizza by weight. We decided to purchase a slice of several different types to see what we liked best. The pizza was heated and then served on a wooden board. Reasonable prices. Tasty pizza.

A narrow slice is 4 EUR. Served heated wrapped in paper or layed on a cutting board. Tastes good as the... More

This place is an Italian food heaven near the Fori, Coliseum and Piazza Venezia. If you are starving or would like to indulge your love for Italian food, Pizza and Mortadella is what you need. Not only the food is awesome but also the prices are amazing. Panini with porchetta (Roman hog roast) is my absolute favourite. You can make... More

Our favorite pizza shop during our visit to Rome! Pizza is continually being made with many creative varieties. You choose how much you want sliced off and it's served warm and fresh! We stopped by several times even for a snack. Their panini looks amazing too! The "pizza guys" were awesome and always friendly.... We felt like it was our... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
