This is where the locals eat and the price and quality of the food reflect that. We had 2 pizzas Gorgonzola and capricciosa - thin crust (how we like them) and delicious. We also had 2 bottles of wine and a bottle of water €31.50...all in. Service was good, friendly and prompt. Highly recommended!More

This marvelous evening-only pizzeria in Testaccio is pretty popular among Romans, Its simple refectory-style decor and amusingly surly service should not put you off - the pizzas are marvelous and very good value. Worth a detour. It has a mostly local clientele but draws savvy...tourists from the centre too. EnjoyMore

Every time we are in Rome, we try to eat at Nuovo Mondo, a very informal restaurant; With football t-shirts on the wall and hard overhead lighting, it is not a cosy place but the food is good, especially the baccala, suppli and fried eggplant...flowers. Most famous for their pizza's it is a good and busy place for a quick meal.More

It takes some getting used to dining in Rome. We arrived at Nuovo Mondo a little after 6:00 p.m. No one else was there except some employees. We were seated and given menus. Next thing I see is our waiter and a few other guys...walking down the street. We then noticed on the menu that they open at 6:30. We sat unattended for almost a half hour before he came back. Then we were waited on by a different waiter. Much of the staff did not speak English, but we're in Rome, so not a huge surprise. The pizza has an extremely thin crust and is uncut. It is made to eat with utensils. The pizza was large and tasted very good. It seems that Italians each get there own pie. As per the European way, you don't get your check unless you ask. (Il conto, per favore). There is a register where you pay. A surly man didn't seem to appreciate my attempt to ask if that is where we pay. There is outdoor seating. The inside is not air conditioned so there's no getting cool inside.More

Too bad that the owner is a scammer, because this pizzeria does actually authentic Roman pizza. But, be aware of your bill! Items that I did not order, increased my bill by 50%. Went to talk to the boss, who didn’t apologize, didn’t even believe...me and insisted me to pay for things I didn’t order, which unfortunately I did. I should have called the police, but was overwhelmed by the first time I got scammed in a restaurant. I very very rarely leave negative reviews, but this experience just gave me a horrible and unpleasant after taste.More

They have the best pizza in Rome! The food is very good and cheap, plus very friendly waiters. We didn't know that Pizza Parmigiana was the best pizza out there. We also wondered how aubergine (eggplant) tastes like on pizza since a lot of locals...were ordering it. Their restaurant is very homey. We will definitely come back.More

Everyone has their favorite pizza place in Rome and Nuovo Mondo is mine. Our neighborhood (Testaccio) is home to some of Rome's best pizza, the Nuovo Mondo leads the pack. It's thin, crisp and well portioned. You come here for the pizza or pasta but...I also recommend the baccalà, a local specialty of fried cod. It's right up there with the pizza. Staff is wonderful and the service is quick.More

Friendly service. Asked for an outside table, needed to wait about 15 minutes but they invited us to wait inside while the table was prepared. Gave us all a free glass of Champagne! Felt more like we were at their home!

Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
