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.
