/Pizza at Da Remo

Pizza at Da Remo

On Tuesday night I had one of the best pizza margheritas of my life. This is a weighty statement, as when I am in Rome, I eat at least three per week at the city’s best pizzerias. The pizza margherita at Da Remo in Testaccio has the classic Roman crust: paper thin and at the same time flimsy and crispy so it bends into a perfect crunchy cheese envelope for my enjoyment.

    Ms. Parla, it definately is a weighty statement. Yet, I am curios to try this margarita pizza hopefully in the near future at De remo. Even though personally I prefer the New York style pizza over the Roman style.

    with kind regards,

      @Elenora Volentieri!

      @Joe Grimaldi’s in NYC is amazing, though the best pizza in america is in the city of your sister’s and my alma mater. did you ever go to sally’s, pepe’s or bar when you visited new haven?

      @style and inspiration make sure ai marmi in trastevere and li rione in the celio are on the list, too!

    Ohhh, thanks for the pizza recommendation. I will be in Rome this spring and I’m adding Da Remo to my list! About to check out your “pizzerias in rome” post too! Thanks! 🙂

    I agree, Remo makes the best. In Rome, that is.

    Ciao Katie, we have to hook up for a serious meal sometime soon.

    I grew up in New Haven and love hearing about how everyone loves Pepe’s Pizza as well as Sally’s–my hometown pizza!

    joe i dont know it. what is it. tell me everything. damn you! i never should have left new haven.

    Ted’s makes steamed hamburgers. They are not actually good but you gotta love the concept. Also, pining for New Haven when you’ve lived for years in one of Europe’s most beautiful and interesting capitals is surely a sign of encroaching mental illness. Of course, leaving such a city to actually return to New Haven means that shit is full blown 😉

    My god, now that looks like a proper pizza… I just wish you could get anything even anywhere near this good in London…

      No, you won’t find anything this good in London, I’m afraid. But Franco Manca in Brixton does a pretty convincing Neapolitan style pie.

    I can vouch for Katie’s statement- Da Remo is the ultimate pizza in the whole wide world. EPIC. I lived in Testaccio for three years and fell in love with it. I never send my friends who are visiting Rome there, bec for them, it’s a bit out of the way, so I send them to Monte Carlo, another fave. But there is no comparison. If you haven’t eaten at Da Remo, you have yet to live 🙂

    I eat pizza on the first night of my visits to Roma – definitely looking forward to eating at Da Remo!

    Ciao Katie!

    I am an American (incidentally named Katie!) living and loving in Rome as well and just stumbled across your blog last night and absolutely love it! The fantastic food (aka pizza haha) is just one of the many things I love about this city and I am very anxious to try out some of your recommendations here! If this isn’t too forward I would love to meet for a meal sometime to pick your gastronomically-inclined brain! 🙂

    I followed the app – I got swept away by this post – but my word, I do think my salsiccia was one of, if not the best pizza I’ve had.

    Thank you

    I live down the street from this place, so I will have to try it now. You should try Ciccillo’s near Roma Tre. I’d be curious to hear what you thought of it.

    Going to Rome first week of June to take my wife shopping and to See her fav band Green Day. We are bring my eldest boy 17 and our 13 year old triplets. We have done the 3 star Michelin bit in Dubai and Europe, but are looking for places that my kids well love, pizza sausages and amazing pasty, not pretensious, just some good old school delights, anything jump out that you’d suggest? You sold us on Remo for pizza. One f our faves is risotto and my wife loves a mojito. Anything would be appreciated.

    I just had the Margherita di buffala about an hour ago! It was like a dream. The thin light crust, just the right amount of sauce and cheese, the tips of blackened crust. I’ve always been partial to Neopolitan pizza but this place is making rethink that. I also had a bowl of puntarelle before the pizza. Wow I know this is something I will miss dearly in the states. Thanks for your great advice Katie!
