How many pizzerias do we have in Rome? Hundreds? Thousands? Each has its own characteristics and specialty but after a while, they start to taste and smell, all the same, right? Eventually, you might go for another factor of choice and that is when Pizzeria Ostiense makes the difference.
Thin, crunchy, and wide – a typical Roman-style pizza. Pizzeria Ostiense with fair prices and good quality ingredients always has its tables full of locals coming from the nearby neighborhoods. If you arrive between 8 PM and 8:30 PM, know that you’ll find a huge line to sit at a table.
The fried food deserves a special mention, the so-called “fritti,” which here is pretty good compared with the average Roman pizzeria. It’s definitely a place to try if you want to spend an easygoing evening immersed in an authentic Roman atmosphere. And that is when, to me, Pizzeria Ostiense becomes a game changer when talking about pizzerias in Rome.
Take a table outside, or even better, inside. And then open your senses. The chaos, the servers, and the clients of this pizzeria are for me the real secret ingredient of Pizzeria Ostiense that gives you while eating your pizza a real taste of Rome. A bit rude, chaotic, and not always perfect, but at least sincere and real. The most genuine element of the city. Come as you are and live this phenomenal glimpse of Rome.
