Pizzeria Ostiense in Rome

Pizzeria Ostiense

It seems like every block of Rome’s Ostiense district has had at least one new opening in 2014. Not all of them are worthwhile. Anzi. But very much worth checking out is Pizzeria Ostiense, which opened in April, and serves paper thin, super crisp, wood-fired pizzas. The owners are Da Remo alumni and when they migrated from Testaccio they left the snark behind them and instead focus on providing efficient and downright friendly service. The menu features all the Roman pizzeria classics: beans, fried starters, Roman-style pies and traditional deserts. There are also a handful of pasta dishes, though it’s the simple fritti and the economical and unpretentious pizza that will keep me going back again and again.

    Their website and TripAdvisor page didn’t say anything about working hours. I came at 4pm and pizzeria was closed. Very disappointed.

      In Rome, no worthwhile restaurants or pizzerias are open at 4PM. The hours should be on the site, but in classic Roman fashion, they are only posted on their Facebook page. They are also listed on my app. For future reference, Pizzeria Ostiense is open 6:30pm-1:00am. It’s always wise to ring ahead before turing up to confirm hours

    I’ve been a Da Remo fan for many years so I’m off on the No 3 tram from San Lorenzo down to Ostiense tonight. But Katy how could you? Snark at Da Remo? Never!
