Food was great and service was great as well. We booked in the afternoon for 7:30 it was a good time. The restaurant is fairly quiet and service is quick. At 8:30 it starts to get really packed so make sure you either book or get in early. Would definitely recommend!!

I immediately felt we had made a mistake picking this restaurant.As non-Italians we were most unwelcome. Obviously very popular with the locals as the food was excellent. But we were not part of the "club". The owner didn't even stop chatting to the table behind us whilst taking our payment.

We were invited by friends to Pinsa e Buoi and we were all fully satisfied with the food and especially with the dough of their pinsa: a Roman version of pizza which at this restaurant is superb. The dough is exceptional (and very easy to digest!) and there are many original choices of the pinza on the menu which deserve... More

The waiter was almost rude, the lasagna was almost cold, the lamb had no taste, the wine was expensive. Thats all we can say about our disappointing visit at this restaurant.

It was my first day in Rome and because of this restaurant - the worst day there. Rome is famoust of pizza, right? But pizza there was far the worst I have ever eaten in my whole life. Furthermore the service was terrible and the menager is just an as***le. He treated me as if I was (because I'm not... More

Rome should be ashamed of this restaurant. They have one of the worst pizza I've had in my life. not to mention the pizza in Italy. Be careful because they are cheating on service. Also is worth mentioning that the manager of this "restaurant" - to be delicate to say - is impolite, rude. when we wanted to discuss suddenly... More

We had been recommended to try Pinsa e Buoi at Via Carlo Felice, by our guide on a tour. We made the trip out on the Metro and it was worth it (there is another branch in Central Rome but this is supposed to be better). We were somewhat early by Italian timing for eating in the evening and although... More

After living in Rome for years, a person gets tired of the repetitive menu one inevitably finds which includes the same traditional mediocre pasta dishes served day after day. I found this restaurant to be a breath of fresh air. We ate inside which is cozy, quiet and sober yet elegant. It doesn't necessarily cater to tourists (English for my... More

… is being served here in a nice setting which also applies to the al fresco seating, however you should be able to ignore the noise from the traffic on the busy street. Friendly staff is helping you with the menue which is any other than usual, containing Roman specialties galore, any of them cooked to perfection and extremely delicious.... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times in the past few weeks, recommend by my tour guide. Each time we were warmly welcomed, very busy with a mix of tourists and locals. Hand made pasta was delicious, simple flavours with fresh produce. Good value for a top end restaurant. A good selection of wines. Deserts were amazing. I had... More

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighborhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
