Fodor's Review

On a cobblestone street not far from Piazza Navona, this is one of Rome's most popular pizzerias and a summer favorite for street-side dining. There is constand debate over whether this spot is overrated, but as with all the "great" pizzerias in Rome, it's hard to argue with the line that forms outside the door on weekends (the wait can be up to an hour). Happily, outdoor tables—enclosed and heated in winter—provide much-needed additional seating and turnover is fast; lingering is not encouraged. (Note: Baffetto 2, at Piazza del Teatro di Pompeo 18, also offers pasta and secondi, and doesn't suffer from the same overcrowding, plus you can reserve a table).

Da Baffetto Review

Nice pizza but all the rest is a bit brush off, the service is not so good, they are always in rush, and want more clients going in.

Best pizza in Rome!

We ate pizza non-stop while in Rome and decided this was the best pizza we found! Granted, the interior is not fancy, the tables are covered in paper, and the walls are lined with photos and notes from happy and/or famous customers, but the pizza is fabulous! It is one of the only places we found where pizza comes in more than one size. The medium is more than enough for one person (we never ordered the large). Good prices. The pizza with zucchini

flowers was particularly excellent. The house red wine was also excellent. The waitstaff were fast and efficient, mildly grumpy but in an endearing way, and always showed extra kindness to my son. They open at 6:30pm and are continually packed, so arrive early to beat the crowd.
