Ate there this evening (21 August) with my wife, an Italian exchange student who lived with us two years ago, and a close friend (American) who has lived in Rome in the past. We ate there on the recommendation of our American friend who said it was her favorite pizza restaurant in Rome. It was a good recommendation. Trastavere is a wonderful neighborhood, the most ancient still standing in Rome, really, and is full of winding streets and intriguing restaurants around almost every corner. Our Italian daughter really wanted to go there, and her desire and our friend's recommendation led us to this spot. I can't say anthing about the food other than the pizza, because all four of us ordered that. Was the pizza any good? Well, if you think Dominos and Pizza Hut are the best pizza you can possibly buy, then your American prejudices may not allow you to appreciate just how good and wonderful this pizza is. But if you would like a pizza baked in an extremely hot wood fired oven, with a thin, crisp, and slightly charred crust, and oozing with hot cheese and tomatoes and whatever toppings you fancy, then you cannot do better than this place. This is the best pizza I have had in Italy, and I have had quie a few, in a numbr of Italian cities, including some rarely frequented by American tourists. It is certainly better than anything I have had in the U.S, and I like the pizza in my home town.
I should mention that we had a bottle of low-priced Chianti which was a good value. Nice mineral undertones. Prices were reasonable, slightly less than i would pay for a similar meal back home.
