Pizzarium: for rediscovering pizza

take away

You thought you knew what a pizza was? A trip to this tucked-away place close to the Vatican will show you otherwise.

It doesn't look like much and yet there is always a crowd of locals waiting for their slice of pizza, served Roman style taglio which means cut into rectangular pieces. There are no tables here, you have to elbow your way up to the counter. It's definitely worth the effort: this is unforgettable pizza, made by the chef and owner Gabriele Bonci, the ‘Michelangelo of pizza', a man with a gladiator's stature and a big smile.

Everything is fresh and of the highest quality, starting with the crust ingredients: extra-virgin olive oil, organic spelt or Lazio wheat flour, naturally leavened. The toppings are just as scrumptious: traditional speck and mozzarella, but also octopus, sausage, mushrooms, and truffles… More than a treat: this is pizza paradise!
