Out having a few drinks on the town, we found ourselves a little peckish so we stopped in at this little beauty. Best pizza I've tasted in Italy, at the cheapest prices. It was around 2AM and the pizza chefs were the happiest, kindest guys I've ever met. They were great for a laugh and we happily drank our beers... More

At about 3AM my teenaged son and I were still on Canadian time. We were heading out early to visit Pompeii and needed to get something to eat for the morning. Our hotel concierge at Hotel Forum suggested this little deli/pizzeria around the corner. We felt totally safe walking there so early in the morning and we were happily greeted... More

A happy butcher carves off a taste of spicy calabrese pizza for my family then one for himself as we walked in. The ricotta was piled high under mozzarella and salami. We had a great lunch there, within 1 km of the Colosseum. Who would have thought that possible? We thought the prices very reasonable for the location and the... More

As mentioned pizza is sold by the weight. Good spot to stop but not cheap considering what you are getting. They are open late. Two small tables outside. Good for a break in the day.

It's fair but not cheap. Pizzas are saled by the weight of your bit. It's not a restaurant. There's no tables and chairs inside. It's a like small market serving pizzas. The staff is not very kind.

Stayed directly across the street at the Hotel Paba (wonderful hotel!) Get a sandwich and some pastries/cookies in the morning to take with you while sightseeing. Tried the ham, salami and mortadella sandwiches. All fresh and tasty!

We sat there at New Year's Eve (evening) as we were going to Colosseo to welcome 2014 and see the fireworks and the other performances. The staff is friendly and cheerful and people were coming in and out of the store in a happy mood. Pizza was great and it was sold in pieces. Beer was cheap. Although the store... More

We stopped by Pizza & Mortadella for a quick lunch. We both got prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and tomato sandwiches. They were delightful! Not only do they have great food, the whole little shop is very neat. Homemade goods abound in the grocery part of the store.

Ok so coming back to Rome from a day spent in Florence, my mom, my son and I stumble into this place on our walk back to our hotel. "Pizza and mortadella" we thought what a cliche name but there's nothing cliche about the pizza we ended up having. The pizzas looked colorful. So many options to choose from. The... More
