Good Rustic style pizzeria. Lamb skewers delicious although on small side so order at least 10-20 at a time. Pizzas fantastic and great choice. Excellent value for money. Reserve if possible as queued out most evenings.

This is a great pizzeria with a very local atmosphere. We had a great selection of bruschettas to start along with “arrosticini” which are small bits of meat on a skewer. Our children went crazy for these. Pizza was tasty but I have to admit, if I hadnt had the starter, I would have been starving with pizza alone. For... More

Me and my husband had dinner at laboratorio 3 a few times over our stay in Rome and thought their pizzas were the best we had in Rome!! Incredible light bases and fresh toppings! Delicious! The price of a pizza was about €6 which was way less than in central Rome. They had a lovely outdoor seating area and mainly... More

Is the kind of restaurant where you know what are you going to find. You can feel the smell of nice meet cooking from blocks away which provokes your mouth watering. When you arrive every little detail is very traditional and typical, Italian style. But the best part is still to come, the most delicious pizza you can ever have,... More

A right choice for a "quick and dirty" (not in a negative meaning) pizza and fried specialties, for few money. The pizza is cooked in "the Roman way" (very thin and crunchy), then it's better to join a bruschetta (sausage and cheese is their top) or supply (fried ball of rice and meat).

If you're looking for a cool place to go, then this is not your best choice; on the contrary, if your priority is to find an old style Rome pizza place, with paper cloths, tasty food and a lot of noise then Laboratorio 3 fits your needs. It is really weird that you cannot book a table, especially during weekends;... More

Pizza was not something I really liked until last night. This restaurant is situated in the suburb of pietralata in Rome. A very lively place and absolutely packed with locals. The reason being the pizza is delicious. Thousands of varieties and terrific value. We had 2 large pizzas one with smoked salmon, one with salami and Gorgonzola, a bottle of... More

The place is really nice and popular. The best things you can have here are arrosticini and bruschette, try the ones with spread sausages on it. Pizza is not great though.

Terrible service, not english-speaking staff, but GREAT PIZZA! Ask for appetizer from lamb and digestive (Grappa and something like Fernet) - a both are gratis for Italiano and everybody who´s asking. :) Good value. (15EUR/person = appetizer from lamb, pizza, some drinks and wine and digestive)
