    Wow! I can't even tell you how much you're going to love your Pizza. Definitely the best Pizza I had in Rome. We had one canzone and one normal plus buffalo mozzarella, they were both so delicious.

    The spicy Dar Poeta pizza is excellent! The Nutella calzone is truly an interesting experience. Go there a Friday evening around 20:00 and swing by the corner to enjoy a beer or drink with the local.

    One of the best pizzas in my life was ordered here. Not so many places with wooden oven, and it is one of them. Not fancy but delicious and cheap. Try Napoletana or Margarita.

    Pizza crust is absolutely great, crispy but fluffy inside. Perfect balance of thinness, crispness and fluffiness. Yummy mortadella and raw buffala pizza. Ricotta and Nutella calzone is to die for!

    I got tuna salad because I have gluten intolerance unfortunately there is no gluten free pizza. My friend got pizza, he said that it was delicious. You should also try calzono with ricotta and nutella

    Best pizza I've had in Rome, "super buffala" delicious thin crust with artichoke, mozzarella di buffala, pomodoro and olives. AMAZING! Go before 7 to skip the waiting line :)

    Pizza pepperoni is a great one especially if you don't like to eat meat products in your pizza. It was delicious. Nutella calzone is also superb, but one is enough for two people :)

    Simple place but friendly environment and amazing pizzas. No need to think twice, just come and enjoy the local pizza! 20-25 euros for 2 people (2 pizzas+0.5lt wine) Rez is not avaible. Come around 7.

    Great italian pizza, thin n crispy crust, fresh ingredients. Buffala was made to perfection n Dar Poeta was a bit more salty. Good value for money, not very clean beer glasses.

    Great bruschettas - chickpea & lemon, Gorgonzola & honey. Fab pizzas - each had diff ones - I had the Dar Poeta. Unusual, delicious but heavy dessert - ricotta & Nutella calzone! Well worth the wait

    Hiding near lots of tourist traffic, this little pizza place is beloved by locals and a great place to grab lunch or dinner. Outdoor and indoor seating, wine by the carafe, and tons of veggie options.

    Been here two years in a row. Quality still the same. Delicious and interesting pizza selection. Gets very busy and noisy. Better for quick finish & go. Try Nutella e ricotta calzone as a desert.

    Calzone nutella was amazing! We ordered the small One but after dinner we hardly finished it as 3 people! Also pizza and bruschetta were delicious.

    Vegan-friendly pizza place. English-speaking staff. Something for every taste. The crust was crispy but doughy, just the way I like it. The tomato base was fresh & flavourful. Most pizzas were €6-9.

    Avoid the tourist traps of Rome and have a pizza here. The best in Rome. Delicious and affordable. The small Nutella calzone is perfect for two to share. Get there by 19:00 and avoid a long wait.

    Word is out, but if there's a wait, they'll serve you drinks out front, or there's a bar on the corner. The wait would still be worth it if they hung you upside down by your toe nails.

    The pizzas are delicious! There are tables outside in a small and calm street. You must be patient to get a table, or put your name on the list and have a drink until then (:

    Has the best pizza in town due to its dough! A short wait for tables in a very rustic area! Best pizza in Rome? Probably!

    The Dar Poeta pizza (pictured) is something special. Looks plain at first, but the garlic base and spicy sausage make it full of flavors! 😋😋

    The pizza is out of this world! I had the Siciliana and despite being sceptical about having aubergines on my pizza I was more than positively surprised! The price is super reasonable!

    We had the salami pizza and the Buffalo pizza and both where delicious. We would not go here if we hadn't got tipped, but we are so glad we did. The pizzas was probably the best we have ever eaten.

    Best pizza I had so far, visiting Rome. Very crowded, busy place especially around 13/14 pm. Waiters a little rude or inexperienced, but the hostess is a charm. Come here for the fabulous pizzas.

    Oh my God, that pizza with mozzarella di buffala and artichokes! And the calzone with Nutella as a desert, definitely worth it. The queue grew quite large around 9pm.

    Try anything with the fresh mozzarella on top. The pesto pizza is great. You can ask for whole wheat crust. If you have room for dessert, order the Nutella calzone.

    Good pizza, but definently not the number 1 pizza place. Its a simple, unremarkable restaurant with good pizza, no more, no less. They also have a 2 euro service charge, for no good reason.

    Great pizza, good prices. You must try the Sarmonata. Still, the calzone con nutella didn't seem that fabulous. It's a plain pizza filled with nutella. I'd choose a crêpe over this anytime!

    OMG. 2nd time in 5 years and would go back another 10 more. Go to the Vatican then stroll 20 min down the river to Dar Poeta. Start with the mixed bruschetta followed by any pizza on the menu.

    Pizza is cheap 8-9 euros and the choice is great! Food is tasty ( both pizza and salads) but I can't say I found anything special about this place. The pizza was tasty but not the best one I tried.

    No wonder this place was packed on Monday evening, the pizza was unlike any other I have ever tasted. The reviews didnt lie, Dar Poeta was great but Im sure others are too. Great value for money.
