You know what they say. When in Rome, you must do as the Romans do. Like, never order a cappuccino after noon, and don’t have dinner till nine. In a city as brilliant as this, you’ve got to truly immerse yourself in the culture. And we know it’s going to be hard, but that’s going to involve eating lots and lots of thin-crust, delicious pizza. Tough gig, right?

Open Tue-Sun 11am-1am
La Montecarlo is the perfect option for pizza and pasta lovers and where roman people likes to go.

Seu Pizza Illuminati
Via Angelo Bargoni, 10 — 18
Located in Trastevere, Seu Pizza Illuminati quickly established itself as one of the best contemporary pizzerias in the city after opening in 2018. The slightly chewy consistency of Neapolitan pizza and the crunchiness of the Rome-style crust is achieved by chef and wizard Pier Daniele Seu’s double-leavening. Toppings are innovative here and flavour combos are daring, seamlessly blending tradition and seasonality. Some of the ingredients are gonna freak you out, but go with it — we’re talking roasted watermelon, octopus carpaccio, edamame beans and peanut crumble
Via del Monte della Farina, 28,
A popular deli-pizzeria-restaurant, Emma is conveniently located near Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona, making it the perfect place to stop for a meal as a break from sightseeing. The menu is extensive and the pizza dough is made with top-quality organic flowers by Pierluigi Roscioli, one of the leading pizzamakers in the city. Toppings are made with carefully selected ingredients from the best regional products; 30-month-old Parmigiano Reggiano, buffalo mozzarella from Paestum and anchovies from Sicily. Indoor and outdoor seating.
Pizzeria ai Marmi (Trastevere)
Viale di Trastevere, 53-59
Daily, except Wednesday. 18:30 — 02:00
Pizzeria ai Marmi might seem a little Spartan on the inside, but its pizza packs a punch and is guaranteed not to disappoint. You can’t book, so turn up a good 30 minutes before you want to eat. Come hungry too: you’ll want to try its fried food starters as well as classic Roman pizzas.
Don’t take it personally if the waiters don’t seem particularly friendly — here or at any other Roman pizzeria. Service culture is seen differently in Italy, and tipping is not common, especially among Italians.
Gino Sorbillo — Lievito Madre a Roma
Piazza Augusto Imperatore 46,
A Neopolitan pizza joint in the middle of Rome. With a wide selection of the best quality pizzas you can find. A great stop for something simple yet delicious.
