“absolutely don't miss this pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2009

il sellaio is just wonderful. it is a 5-7 minute bus ride on the #20 going the "pilastro " direction from downtown. get off at the SANT`EGIDIO bus stop, and it is within 50 feet. from the outside it doesn't look like much, but inside it is rustically charming. the wood fired oven and the bustling staff turn out a wide variety of incredible pizzas (from 5 to 8 E per). its card says it has been in business since 1880(the guy who seated us has probably been there half that time). i'm a pizza snob and this is the best i have ever eaten. it takes a little effort to get to, but that is why it remains totally local. service is extremely fast and friendly even if there is no english spoken.
