Celebrity chef Gabriele Bonci has always had a cult following in the Eternal City. And since he’s been featured on TV shows overseas and written up by influential bloggers, you can expect long lines at his pizzeria. No matter—it’s worth waiting (and walking 10 min. west of the Vatican Museums) for some of the best pizza you’ll ever taste, sold by the slice or by weight. His ingredients are fresh and organic, the crust is perfect, and the toppings often experimental (try the mortadella and crumbled pistachio). There’s also a good choice of Italian craft IPAs and wheat beers, and wines by the glass. There are only a handful of stand-up tables inside and benches outside for seating, and reservations aren’t taken. Bonci also has a counter at Termini’s Mercato Centrale.
