Sunny-side-up egg, sausage, mushrooms, onion, red pepper, artichoke, tomato sauce


€ 10.00


Via del Governo Vecchio, 114 00186 Roma, Rom (Latium), Italy


This pizzeria has a huge line, and was worth the wait. This is also the thinnest pizza crust I have ever had, literally paper thin. I got the ‘Da Baffetto’ pizza, the large. One advantage of the crispy crust is that Roman pizzerias get to show off their premium ingredients without risking an undercooked and soggy pizza. In this case the sausage and mushrooms are amazing. There is a fat sunny-side up egg that is in the center of the pizza and tastes great with the crispy crust. The pizza itself has a lot more than that, and in any American pizzeria this pizza would typically be called ‘The Works’. None of the ingredients are bad, and all are pretty fresh. There is a large mix of tourists and Italians in this restaurant, and the unassuming entrance gives no indication that 150-200 people are dining inside. The narrow cobblestone alley Da Baffetto is on gives the whole dining experience an authentic ambience, and if you only had one night to eat pizza in Rome, this should be the place. The restaurant also seems to take some pride in its house wine, which comes in hand-painted liter and half-liter jugs. On a scale of one to ten I give the toppings a 7.5 and the crust a 5.5
