Update of our last post “TOURIST-FREE RESTAURANTS IN ROME. THE TESTACCIO DISTRICT“
To eat a pizza in Testaccio, I absolutely recommend “Pizzeria Nuovo Mondo”.
I went to eat a pizza with some friends in this historic pizzeria and had a fantastic experience. Watching 4 “pizzaioli” (pizza tossers) work their craft at the same time in front of a wood-fire oven was incredible.
The pizza, thin crust “alla romana” (Roman style), was delicious, as were the super-Roman “supplì” (balls of rice, filled with ground beef, tomato sauce, and mozzarella, rolled in bread crumbs and egg and deep fried) and filet of baccalà (a local cod, simply rolled in flour and deep fried). The locale is relaxed and casual, with fast service and friendly servers. Wait a few minutes until an outdoor table opens. In short, we highly recommend this place – a real tourist-free pizzeria in Rome!
