“Al Bajniero is the BEST Italian restaurant in Italy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We are a New York based couple that recently had the privilege of spending our honeymoon in Rome. We spent our stay at the Ostia Antica Hotel which, lucky for us, is located a few steps away from Al Bajniero. Head chef, Andrea Libertella is not just a wonderful chef, but as we found out, a wonderful person. His skill in his profession is accompanied by his friendly and outgoing attitude as he greets his diners. The variety of pizzas is enough to pull at the heartstrings of any pizza-lover. Besides the pizza, every dish has something different and unique that Al Bajniero only has to offer. For example, the Scoglio and Tiramisu is unlike any other we've tried in the Rome area. We look forward to visiting Al Bajniero again and we recommend anyone looking for a great dining spot around Rome to check out this Restaurant.

“Excellent food for the money.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

All the food ordered except the the 'croquettes', that turned out to be one croqutte, were really tasty and good value for money. The brushetta was very good and the wine by the litre we found enjoyable. The location was perhaps off the beaten track but as it was next to our hotel it was ideal. If we ever make it back to the area we shall eat here.

“Nona is in the kitchen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

I have eaten in this restaurant many times,maybe 7xs. I am not one to return to restaurants but this was an exception to my rule of one and done. The family run restaurant is closed on monday.
The service is very Italian, for Americans,this means slow BUT that is the Italian way. Why rush?? Every pasta and pizza I have tried were excellent. My Grandparents and aunts and uncles were from Abbruzzo and that means good cooks. The Gnocchi were perfect and must have been home made. The young man ,who always serves ,is the son of the owners and he's very polite and friendly. I know locals eat there and that people have wedding receptions and other important events here. The restaurant is directly across the small street from the Ostia Antica Park hotel. Take the 04 bus from center of Ostia and get off at the hotel. You will love the food and the price is very reasonable.,
