Tasty, cheap pizza near the Tiber

Cool place where you can grab delicious pizza to go at a reasonable price. Here's what you do: grab a bottle of OK wine from Carrefour, grab some pizza from Franco e Cristina and go dine by the Tiber (100m away).

If you are in the Jewish quarter midday this is your place for lunch. Good variety of pizza plus paninis and more. Thin crust, and instead of fixed sizes for the slices you just tell them how much of the rectangle pie you want, they cut that much, then you're charged by weight.

Explaining why this place is outstanding requires some background. Real Italian cuisine is difficult to find outside Italy, and even inside it. Actually, "Italian cuisine" does not exist; each region of Italy has its own cuisine, and Roman cuisine is particularly interesting. Among the traditional Roman dishes, several are rooted in the Jewish section of town, the original "Ghetto". It... More

We were a group of 10 family members on a Food Tour of Rome and this quintessential restaurant was one of the stops. Overwhelmingly fantastic food and wine! We were blown away by the cannelloni and fried zuchnini blossoms. What a beautiful setting as well. jae

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
Ghetto
The mini-neigborhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighborhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
