    The Bufala & Prosciutto antipasti, Dar Poeta pizza and Nutella & Ricotta Calzone were all amazing. Very busy & staff were a bit grumpy but the food being so good makes this placeworth a visit anyway.

    Pizza are amazing. Don't be fooled by the size. They are enough for one big meal. We got dessert and spent the rest of the day in a near food coma experience. Good place to chill out. Will do it again

    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.

    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

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    One of the best pizza I ever had! And I do eat a lot it them... Restaurant is in a small street so pretty hard to find. Service is friendly. And of course pizza are divine. No pizzas over 10€

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
  • Tobias L.
    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 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 (:

    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.

    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!

    Great place! Lovely small resto look, super yummy pizza, friendly staff! Worth the wait (if you go before 8 the line is not too long after 9 things get a bit tricky).

    Cosy and lively pizzeria with their specialty thin crusts. Be ready to share tables and rub elbows. Drink wine in unpretentious small mugs!!

    Small canteen style pizzeria with poems in Roman accent on the walls. Great vegetarian choices as well. Waitress girls are sweet ;)

    Best pizza I've had in my life, and I eat a lot of pizza. Get the Dar Poeta and the one with pomodoro, mozzarella, salami, and hot Italian pepper (I forget the name)

    Excelent pizza! The Sarmonata and Superbufala are great! I also tried Pizza Dar Poeta, but it wasn't extraordinary. It gets very crowded in the evening, so come early!

    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.

    I ordered the Bufala pizza and it was amazing! I repeat: a-ma-zing! A dinner for two with wine and dessert for 30 euro, my favorite place in Rome!

    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.

    Crazy pizza in Roma. Best pizza that i've eaten in this city. This place is a typical italian pizzeria. It's very cheap, most of costumers are from Roma and very quality.

    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.

    Good local restaurant. Always crowded (better having reservation) The food is much better than the city center. Not for a romantic dinner. Great location.

    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.

    Not exactly your cosy, family style place. Skip the so-so bruschettas and go straight for the pizzas. There's only one word: Wow! (..and the 4€/half litre house wine is also quite decent)

    Amazing pizza place. Buffalo pizza was super good. Nutella & ricotta calzone didn't impress, was too sweet. They also don't have wifi.

    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.

    The Bruscetta is with the trip and the pizza is among the best you'll find. Go early to guarantee a street side table.

    Super buffalo was great! Try white house wine as well, and do not forget to drink your coffee before you leave...
