Every time when we in Rome, we chose this place in San Lorenzo. Great food, authentic local atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Try it, you'll not regret!

I still think about the carbonara and salivate, it was amazing! The pizza was also good, but maybe not the best pizza place in Rome. The prices are very cheap and the service is quick, but it also felt like they want you to leave...More

Probably the best pizza in Rome! We've staying around the corner for the last few days and eaten all over Rome. This place was easy and great value for us for a family of 4 including a hungry 12 and 10 year old. Would recommend...More

We went for a meal as we were staying very locally. I got a pizza which was delicious and had the perfect levels of base and topping. My girlfriend had a spaghetti carbonara which was also very tasty. The pizzeria has a really nice atmosphere...More

Pizzas are ok, thin base yes but rather bland. Sauce was...average and quality of toppings was...average. It is way better than most of the tourist traps in Rome and has a nice busy local feel but not worth going out of your way to get...More
