“La Pizza de Divino!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

After eating this pizza you won't be able to go back to the take away/home delivery stuff you get from the franchised pizza chains. In fact you won't even be able to call that stuff pizza anymore! Be sure to try the potato pizza, and a warning: This pizza is VERY addictive. Yes, it is a little pricey, but when travelling overseas, a constant concern is quality of food, am I right? And this pizza is "il qualitia". Buy a couple of pizzas take-away, a bottle of red wine for the red-meat pizza, or white for the rest, and picnic in the park next to the Coloseum (I can't remember the name, the one with the fenced-off area with the Roman ruins anyway). The perfect evening.

“The best part of our Roman pizza pilgrimage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

An excellent spot for traditional Roman pizza "al taglio" (which means "by the cut") This is wonderful way to go as you pay by the weight and allows you to try a piece of this and a piece of that as your appetite permits. No English is spoken, but the staff is super friendly and hand gestures are all you need to sample their spectrum of great ingredients atop perfectly chewy/crispy crusts. Packed with locals and the best pizza we had in the city.

“Delicious Roman pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I ate the most wonderful white pizza at this small hole-in-the-wall place. Very clean, great pricing, and such good pizza that I'd love to go back for more. And definitely will next visit to Rome. Located on small side street in Trastavere neighborhood.

“Great Local Place for Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

Saw 4 Policemen eating in this very small place and knew it would be good. Workers did not speak any English, but by pointing and hand signals could figure each other out. Pizza sold by the slice by weight, all great. We bought 4 pieces (could only eat two then, saved two for later) and it cost 6 Euros. all were great.

“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2010

This small pizza place (with no seating) is always jammed with locals. The pizza is excellent and sold by the slice (which is somewhat rare in Rome). Growing up in NY I ate a lot of Pizza. This place will not dissappoint even the most critical NY pizza critics. Located two blocks from Plaza dei Popolo.
