Trastevere: Pizzeria da Vittorio

Via di S. Cosimato, 14 , Phone: 065800353

Reviewed by: Tim Ball from USA, review #3759

When: 2011

Warm, family-friendly pizzeria with mostly local patrons.

Directions: Just a block or so south of Church Santa Maria In Trastevere. You can take the tram south from Via di Torre Argentina and get off the first stop after the bridge. Walk west on Via della Lungretta for about four blocks until you reach the piazza. Upon reaching the piazza, turn immediately left and walk south out of the piazza on Via San Cosimato. The pizzeria will be about two blocks down on your left.

We were staying in an apartment with our four children (ages 9-18) near the Pantheon for one week. Once we discovered this place on a walk down to Trastevere, we went back every night for dinner. The kids loved the pizza and spaghetti carbonara.

My wife and I loved ordering something different every night. I especially loved the gnocchi al Vittorio and the spaghetti with mussels. My wife always started off with the fried zucchini flowers. We both loved the pork.

In four nights eating there, we only saw tourists other than ourselves there once. All the other patrons seemed to be locals from the neighborhood. On our second night there, some patrons coming and recognizing us from the night before, gave us a warm, "buona sera!"

If you're looking for a comfortable, inexpensive dinner without pushy waiters in front trying to pull you to a table to sit down, try this place.
