Known for good reason as the “Michelangelo of pizza,” celebrity chef Gabriele Bonci has always had a cult following in the Eternal City. And since he’s been featured on TV shows overseas as well as written up by influential bloggers, you can expect long lines at his hole-in-the-wall pizzeria. No matter—it’s worth waiting for some of the best pizza you’ll ever taste, sold by weight. The ingredients are fresh and organic, the crust is perfect, and the toppings often experimental (try the mortadella and crumbled pistachio, or the beguiling roasted potatoes and mozzarella). Hang around, as toppings change on a very quick rotation. There’s also a good selection of Italian craft IPAs and wheat beers, and wines by the glass. Note that there are only a couple of benches outside to sit on, and reservations aren’t taken.
