I still think about the carbonara and salivate, it was amazing! The pizza was also good, but maybe not the best pizza place in Rome. The prices are very cheap and the service is quick, but it also felt like they want you to leave...More

This was our favourite place to have Dinner in Rome. Especially the Pizza Calzone and the White Vine were great. There are hardly any tourists.

San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in
urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This
gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of
Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art
galleries, curated mural projects by artists like
Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique
restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San
Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San
